Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) provides relief for many individuals suffering from depression. A common misconception about TMS is that it will “cure” depression. While it is true that individuals who receive TMS many not have reoccurring symptoms after the initial treatment, for others that may not be the case.
