How does TMS Work?
TMS involves the application of a targeted, pulsing magnetic field to excite or inhibit the nerves in the specific area of the brain that is causing the condition.
It was approved by FDA in 2008 and by NICE in 2015 as an effective and safe treatment for Depression. It is widely used in the US and was FDA in 2008. It is also available in France, Germany and other European countries.
TMS treatment is a real alternative for patients who have tried counselling, CBT and antidepressants. Patients experience a different type of recovery with TMS to other treatments – their mood improves, they regain motivation and confidence and report improvements in appetite and energy levels.
This is an outpatient procedure with minimal side effects. It is well tolerated, long lasting, comfortable and you can return to work immediately afterwards.
TMS treatment can be life changing for patients and their families
