How does a eNeura Transcranial Magnetic Stimulator (TMS) treat migraines?

Your doctor may suggest the eNeura Transcranial Magnetic Stimulator (TMS), a prescription device you place on the back of the head at the start of a migraine with aura. It releases a pulse of magnetic energy to part of the brain, which may stop or lessen pain.
