Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

New Vitae Wellness and Recovery is happy to announce that we now offer evidence-based recovery support for individuals who did not find relief from depressive symptoms despite consistent use of antidepressants.

Deep TMS Quakertown

As an adjunct to the use of traditional antidepressant medications, New Vitae Wellness and Recovery is one of the first in our region to offer deep TMS, or transcranial magnetic stimulation services.  The treatment utilizes electromagnetic fields to stimulate the inner workings of the brain and alleviate depressive symptoms.  The non-invasive process, provided for approximately 20 minutes daily over a period of 4 to 5 weeks, permits users to relax in a comfortable chair and read a magazine while treating their depression.  This safe, well-tolerated service uses coils that are placed specifically around the individual’s head to target regions of the brain and to trigger desired responses from neurons, or brain cells.  This service provides hope for those who have found little relief from pharmacological interventions for depression.

This depression treatment is available to the local community and is covered by many insurance companies.  Please contact us for additional information or to schedule an initial evaluation.

New Vitae Wellness and Recovery's deep TMS service was featured as a cutting-edge treatment for depression in a recent episode of PBS Channel 39's program, Close to Home: Depression. To view the full episode, which includes DTMS user testimonials, click here.

"I love New Vitae. My team has been really supportive as I learned to manage my life and be successful in college and employment. I'm getting ready to move on from the program into my own apartment, and feel that New Vitae has helped me be ready for this next step."
