Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS)

It is a non-invasive, precise and well-tolerated therapy, approved by the FDA, for treatment-resistant depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The treatment consists of a focused magnetic stimulation that is delivered in pulses to the skull with the effect of activating key areas of the brain. This highly effective treatment is a giant step forward in tolerability as compared to other treatments. Go to for more information.    

Light-enhanced Hypnotherapy

The use of an LED phototherapy lamp along with hypnosis is a major advancement. This advanced phototherapy lamp combines the benefits of LED illumination & brain entrainment technology.

During biofeedback, you are given visual and/or auditory feedback signals that help you learn to take some control over bodily functions that are normally completely involuntary. By this means, the technique makes it possible to improve a health condition. Biofeedback is a non-invasive, non-medication treatment method that is beneficial for many conditions. Dr. Gutzmann recommends biofeedback in her practice primarily to overcome various types of anxiety.
