But don’t take it from us—read what a few of our patients have actually said about our research studies and their experience with Alivation:

Since beginning dTMS therapy, how has your life changed?

  • “Gradually more energy, just the last week of treatment feeling good. More energy, more desire to get everyday chores done.”
  • “I feel a lot better now and can handle myself more. I feel more productive.”
  • “I no longer have bad thoughts about ending my life. 😊 I’m now able to be around people more and am able to go to work every day. I am much more focused and am able to follow through on work!”
  • “My mood is good! I feel like a productive citizen and found my self-worth! My anxiety has decreased which has slowed my thought process.”
  • “No weepy eyes, my face has emotion. I feel so good about myself again (75% of the time), focused at work now, precise, don’t sleep as much.”
  • “I have gotten my 1st job in 5 1/2 years; I am looking forward to tomorrow. I have more energy. I enjoy doing things for myself.”
  • “I’m full of hope. I Look forward to going to work. See my grandkids.”
  • “Immensely! Was motivated, able to focus on moving home and changing jobs. Two applications, two offers, moving to Lincoln. Riding bike and eating right.”
  • “After TMS the black cloud has lifted. I am more hopeful about life now. I can handle what life throws at me. I am sleeping better at night and actually want to get out of bed in the AM! I haven’t felt like I want to die and I haven’t had a crying episode either. I don’t get so down on myself and I am more productive. I can rationally think through situations and face them head on. I don’t worry as much or avoid activities like I did before. My husband has noticed a huge difference in my mood and outlook on life. Our relationship is much improved! The depression has lifted, the anxiety is manageable, and I can go on to enjoy a more “normal” life!”
  • “Feel pretty good, not sleeping all the time, have more energy, want to go out and do things socially, concentration better at work, less mistakes. Talking with significant other. Relationship better. Not missing as much work.”
  • “I now have happy days and experiences. I am grateful. Thank you.”
  • “I am glad I did TMS. It was such a positive change for me. Before I had anxiety, panic attacks, and depressed most of the time, to the point of just wanting to stay home. Since TMS, my family feels like the good ole me is back. I am back to work and have not been anxious or panicky at all. Have not cried and have not missed a day of work in well over a month. I have such a positive attitude now and feel so much better. Friends and family have all noticed a positive change all around me.”
  • “The most positive change I experienced was the reduction of anxiety that I have had with me for years. My depression was also reduced to almost nothing. I really enjoyed spending time with the TMS team. Everyone involved were patient and kind and showed confidence in their work.”
  • “It’s generally become easier to self-motivate and to take the needed time to complete activities. Frustrations and feeling discouraged are also easier to quell.”
  • “I definitely have less episodes of depression (fewer episodes and less severe intensity) I feel like I am more positive in almost every situation, And I now have hope!”
  • “Very quickly my mood improved. As we continued treatments my anxiety decreased dramatically allowing me to begin to socialize, enjoy activities again. My energy began to improve as well.”
  • “I have a lot more pleasure doing things with family; I have more energy, & a more positive outlook on a daily basis.”
  • “I have a little more energy and desire to do things. The tightness in my chest has gone away, which makes me feel lighter.”
  • “My depression is under control and I rarely have any thoughts of suicide.”
  • “Energy! 😊 Feel much calmer and happier. Planning for the future, interested in things (learning, etc) able to start self-talk to deal with negative feelings, situations before I spiral down.”
  • “Now I am taking my meds as prescribed, I have the energy to do things like go to work regularly and cook and do some cleaning. I laugh and joke again, and am starting to take more care of personal hygiene again.”
  • “Depression and anxiety have been reduced enough for me to be able to use all resources available to me to improve myself and have much higher self-confidence. Feel confident that I will continue to feel better in the future.”
  • “With TMS + medications, I feel like I can handle more in my life. I’m sure I’m more enjoyable to be around. The whole process validated my feelings as being something that was medically wrong and not just me.”
  • “I have been more comfortable, and I am able to talk to family/support systems that I haven’t talked to before.”
  • “My depression is now managed by my medication, I can fall asleep easier, my anxiety has greatly decreased, I find interest in things again, my everyday life as a mother & wife is much easier for me to manage.”
  • “100%! Changed my life. My symptoms are barely there, or completely gone. I’m my old self for the 1st time in years! I’m happy now – everyday! I will forever be grateful to Dr. Duffy & his team of Healers!”
  • “I was really surprised that my anxiety could be treated so well. My medications before TMS left me very anxious. Now, I’m entirely anxiety free, and it is life-changing. Before, I wouldn’t be able to go anywhere alone except work, had trouble meeting new people, and had issues with my stomach because of constant, crippling anxiety. In my opinion, TMS is well worth the cost, especially when insurance covers a good portion of the total cost.”
  • “Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been the perfect treatment for my situation. While life is full of ups and downs, when an overwhelming situation such as a series of stressful work incidences occurs, I was thrown into a deep depression. TMS was applied as the incident occurred to allow me to cope and move forward. I am grateful to the excellent doctors, researchers, TMS specialists that help me recover my life. I would strongly recommend TMS for anyone who experienced stressful and traumatic incidents. TMS was more effective than medication. When cause of depression is specific to incidents, the treatment should be immediate and specific.”
  • “Anxiety is more in the background; meanwhile, I am up to take more active steps to alleviate my anxiety. I have more mental energy and brighter outlook (and balance).”
  • “TMS has greatly improved my anxiety and depression. I get to be the person I always knew I was on the inside, instead of being held back by my anxiety. It’s amazing and I’m so thankful.”
  • “I am grateful to have all of my life back. Before the TMS began, I was only living part of each day. The rest- sometimes significant portion of each day- was lost to the paralysis of despair or anxiety. My treatment coincided with significant stressors. TMS didn’t alter the stressors or the stress, but it improved by resiliency so that I was able to recover more fully and more quickly from experiences that otherwise would have been overwhelming if not debilitating. TMS is not an overnight wonder. It took time. But the change has been remarkable.”
