Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) uses a highly focused pulsed magnetic field to stimulate cortical neurons.
Targets stimulation of the left and right prefrontal cortex, and other targets as appropriate.
Modulates deeper brain regions involved in mood regulation.
Directly depolarizes cortical neurons and modulates neurotransmitter release.
Increases cerebral blood flow and glucose metabolism.
We offer TMS, Accelerated TMS, and Ketamine IV
Dr. Solvason brings more than 20 years of knowledge and experience both doing research using TMS and treating patients since it was FDA approved in 2007.
IntegralTMS is the culmination of Dr. Solvason’s extensive experience with the most difficult and disabling depression. We are creating an integrated clinical practice that will become the standard of practice.

"TMS has been life-changing for me. For decades I have tried every antidepressant there is, and while some worked for a while, they all had unpleasant side effects.
Unlike the medications, TMS works reliably for me, plus I am experiencing no side effects. It’s a great relief to have found a dependable treatment for a truly awful illness!
Even better, the Integral TMS staff and Dr. Solvason are exceptionally caring."
