Typically, patients hear a tapping sound and feel a tapping sensation in the head area during TMS therapy session. To diminish the sound, the patient is provided with earplugs.

TMS treatment is normally spread out over four-to-six weeks. During this time, patients come in for sessions five times per week and each of these sessions last about 20 minutes. Depending on the mental health condition being treated, there may be additional maintenance sessions after the initial course of treatment.

While ECT entails electrically induced seizures, TMS therapy stimulates brain regions using brief magnetic pulses at an amplitude similar to that used in MRI systems.
