TMS Mapping Session

Before your first session, we need to prepare by performing brain mapping.  Through brain mapping, we determine a comfortable and repeatable position for your head and body, the treatment location, and the treatment dosage (intensity).  We need to find out where the treatment needs to be focused, and we do this by finding the area of your brain that controls your thumb. (We do this with painless magnetic pulses.)  Once we’ve done this, we know precisely where we need to direct the treatment.

We then do the Motor Threshold Level Determination to calculate your exact dosage.  Once this is done, the mapping session is complete and we’ll be ready for your first treatment.  The settings are saved in the computer so the mapping procedure only needs to be done once.
