Mental health is an important yet often overlooked part of our overall well-being. It’s something that, when neglected, can become serious and have long-term consequences. Fortunately, many treatments are available to help us maintain healthy mental health.
Serene Health now offers Mindset PrTMS (Personalized Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) services. This is a safe, non-invasive alternative to common medications prescribed for treating depression, anxiety, stress, emotional dysregulation, and other mental health conditions.
Why it’s important to prioritize your mental health
It is important to prioritize your mental health because when your mental well-being is balanced, you can function at higher levels and find true joy in life. Taking time out of our busy schedules to focus on ourselves is essential to remain emotionally stable and happy. This can include various activities like meditating, getting enough sleep, or exercising.
It can also include seeking mental health services, such as talk therapy or PrTMS. One of the biggest misconceptions about mental health treatment is that you must be in crisis or your symptoms really severe before seeking help. Luckily this is not the case! You don’t have to wait until things get really bad before getting help with your mental health.
Therapy can help you learn how to manage stress and difficult emotions while also helping you to identify and develop strategies for coping with life’s challenges. PrTMS can help with brain fog, a common problem, even for those without mental health challenges. PrTMS helps regulate the brain’s activity, allowing it to function more efficiently. This can help improve the clarity of thought, focus, memory, and decision-making.
What is PrTMS treatment, and how does it work?
Personalized Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (PrTMS) is a safe and effective treatment option for individuals with depression who have not had symptoms alleviated through traditional treatments. PrTMS sends magnetic pulses into specific parts of the brain implicated in depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. These directed pulses stimulate nerve cells and can help change brain activity, ultimately relieving symptoms.
PrTMS is personalized to each client’s clinical needs for optimal effectiveness by tracking progress through regular EEGs and questionnaires. This allows clinicians to adjust parameters to customize the treatment for each patient.
Who can benefit from PrTMS treatment?
Personalized repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (PrTMS) has the potential to help those suffering from:
- Brain fog
- Memory issues
- Sleep issues
It can also help with focus & performance enhancement. It is a safe, non-invasive approach that can help alleviate symptoms and improve overall functioning for many individuals—especially those unable to achieve adequate symptom management with existing treatments such as pharmaceuticals or psychotherapy.
How do I know if PrTMS is the right treatment for me or my loved one?
Considering PrTMS as part of your healthcare plan can be a big decision that requires careful consideration. You should always check with your medical team and discuss the potential side effects in detail first. If you are unsure if this treatment is right for you, there are a few steps you can take.
Taking the time to do some research, such as reading up on testimonials from people who have used it and talking with others who have undergone the treatment, can help you make an informed decision about what’s best for your particular situation. In addition, your doctor may also be able to provide some insight on whether or not this therapy might work for you. By understanding all the facts and discussing them with those in the know, hopefully, you’ll be able to make the best decision for yourself.
What are the side effects of PrTMS treatment, and how long do they last?
Personalized repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (PrTMS) can be a safe and effective way to treat mental health conditions in certain individuals, but just like any other medical procedure, it does come with some side effects, though most are minimal. If complications do occur, they may include mild headaches, scalp pain, neck pain, tingling sensation, lightheadedness, or sleepiness.
Symptoms like headaches and lightheadedness typically go away after several treatments. There is also the risk of seizures, but this side effect is rare. Although these side effects are typically mild and short-lasting, it’s important to speak to your clinician immediately if you experience any of them in an extreme way. It’s also essential to keep your doctor up-to-date on any new medications or medical issues that may arise while you are undergoing treatment. With proper care and precautions, PtTMS can be an invaluable tool for relieving mental health struggles.
What should I expect after starting PrTMS treatments for mental health issues?
Starting PrTMS sessions can be intimidating, especially if you’re unsure what to expect. It’s important to remember that every person responds differently to treatment, so the effects you experience could vary significantly from another person’s. Generally speaking, you can expect a warm and friendly atmosphere while in your appointment, with trained staff ensuring that your well-being is taken care of throughout your session.
