10. “We at Square TMS are excited to announce that we are offering Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) treatments. TBS is an advanced new technique of magnetic brain stimulation. Similar to our standard Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, it uses magnetic waves much like an MRI to activate the area of the brain associated with depression. Unlike standard TMS, the treatment is much quicker and is a more affordable option for self-pay individuals. Research suggests TBS has a more powerful, lasting effect than TMS and many believe it will be the future standard of brain stimulation treatment. TBS is often more comfortable because of the lower intensity. TBS is considered off-label and as such is not covered by insurance companies; however, Square TMS offers some of the best rates in the Boston area. If you or someone you know is interested in TBS, contact us at 617-916-5069 and find out more.”
