Living with Depression: Real Stories from Our Patients
I have been suffering from depression for about two years. This summer I decided to have TMS treatment along with Yang Institute’s comprehensive care program. After 6 weeks of daily treatments of TMS, and other services including acupuncture, psychotherapy, and nutrition, I feel so much better. I am full of energy and very optimistic about my future.
TMS was my last hope and all the people at Yang made me feel very comfortable during my treatment. I’ve made almost a full recovery and am beyond pleased with the care I have received. My mood, mentality, and everything changed to a much more positive feeling. I feel very confident and much happier now. I now can finally see myself serving a good purpose.
For my treatment, I received TMS and Neurofeedback three times a week conducted by the very experienced and knowledgeable Ellen. As I write this note and think back to my 4-week intensive treatment at Yang Institute, I can’t help but smile – TMS, Neurofeedback, and my therapy sessions with Dr. Yang have been highly effective and I have come a long way in my recovery. I am grateful to have found Yang Institute.
