TMS Therapy for Depression
For an innovative and proven safe and effective treatment option for depression, consider TMS therapy – only found in South Dakota at Avera Behavioral Health. TMS uses highly focused magnetic pulses to stimulate the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This restores it to normal function and helps lift depression symptoms.
