Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an innovative, FDA-approved therapy that helps people who struggle with major depressive disorder after antidepressants failed or have become intolerant. Since 2008 of FDA approval, TMS has helped numerous people and families to regain hope and happiness.
TMS uses a non-invasive targeted pulsed stimulation from a mild magnetic field to modulate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters. It is a safe treatment without the side effects of antidepressants and makes long term remission of depression possible.
The typical course of treatment is five times a week, for 4-6 weeks. Each treatment session takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Our FDA approved new protocol takes only 3 minutes per session! Patients can resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
Yang Institute is among the first mental health practices that have applied TMS therapy since 2008 — incorporating Acupuncture, Advanced Nutrient Therapy, Neurofeedback, and meditation into TMS therapy. Yang Institute has achieved much higher remission rates than average and has helped numerous patients and families regain hope and happiness.
Most insurance and medicare plans now cover TMS. Our billing specialist can help you obtain authorization from your insurance if you are eligible.
I have been suffering from depression for about two years. I was not feeling myself and would sometimes cry for hours. This summer, I decided to have TMS treatment along with Yang’s comprehensive care program when I was visiting my sons in the US. After six weeks of daily treatments of TMS, acupuncture, psychotherapy, nutrition (therapy) and other services, I feel so much better. When I first came, I could barely walk 20 minutes. Now I take a walk for more than an hour every day, and I am full of energy and very optimistic about my future…”
I have had many years of persistent anxiety and depression since I was 12 years old. I’ve also gone through several tough times along the way, including losing a parent to cancer. My life was affected by depression and anxiety drastically. At times, I was unable to leave my home. I missed a lot of experiences as a teenager and a young adult. Medication to help ease anxiety and depression had made me feel worse. 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 useful purpose. I used to view myself as a wasting away soul. Life is worth living.”

I have suffered terribly with depression and anxiety for most of my life, since age 14. I have tried almost every medicine on the market, but they only patched things sort of together. Finally, my friends found Dr. Yang and TMS for me. I was nervous to start it, but I am so glad I did. I have a life now, a perfect, full, happy one. Yay!
Everyone (at Yang Institute) is so friendly, kind and gentle. The other treatments and the kindness of the staff provided a holistic approach to healing.”
