Dealing with major depressive disorder (MDD) can be an incredibly difficult and isolating experience. For those who have not found relief through traditional antidepressant medications, there is hope. The Blossom TMS™ Therapy System offers a cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment alternative, giving patients a new way to fight depression. In this blog, we’ll explore the Blossom TMS Therapy System, how it works, and the benefits it can provide.
What is Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)?
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that uses alternating magnetic fields to induce an electric current in the brain. It has been shown to be an effective treatment alternative for individuals suffering from major depressive disorder, particularly when other depression treatments have not been successful.
The Blossom TMS™ Therapy System: A New Approach to Depression Treatment
The Blossom TMS™ Therapy System is specifically designed for the treatment of MDD in adult patients who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medications. Since its FDA clearance in 2008, TMS has demonstrated significant results in controlled clinical trials:
- Significant improvement in depressive symptoms was observed in about 50% of the patients who underwent TMS therapy.
- TMS therapy led to complete relief of symptoms in approximately 1 out of every 3 patients treated.
How Does Blossom TMS™ Therapy Work?
During a Blossom TMS™ therapy session, the patient sits comfortably in a chair while an electromagnetic coil is placed against their head. The coil generates a temporary magnetic field, stimulating a specific area of the brain associated with depression. Treatment sessions typically last between 18 to 37 minutes and are conducted 5 days a week for 4 to 6 weeks. Patients remain awake and active during treatment and can resume their daily activities immediately after each session.
