The Irish Sun featured the launch of Smart TMS into Ireland, bringing Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to Dublin.
The feature is entitled:
“MAGNETIC LULL Groundbreaking new treatment for depression which uses magnetic energy to become available in Ireland next week”
The Irish Sun explains the diverse mental health conditions that can be treated with the groundbreaking, medication-free treatment, saying:
“The non-invasive treatment — which uses pulses of magnetic energy to target the brain centres associated with specific psychiatric disorders — is generally most successful for patients who have had no success with medication.”
TMS Treatment Availability in Ireland
Smart TMS CEO Gerard Barnes told the Irish Sun:
“Despite the success of TMS treatment, it is still not widely available and many patients do not even know it exists.
“We hope that launching this new service will bring greater awareness and understanding of mental health issues and enable people to seek suitable treatment. We are delighted to be launching in Dublin and look forward to providing patients with a drug-free, non-invasive alternative to traditional forms of treatment.”
Smart TMS Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Inam Ul-Haq, added:
“I am delighted to be one of the team members of Smart TMS to introduce this innovative treatment to Ireland.”

The Irish Sun shared statistics showing the extent of depression in Ireland:
- Around 1 in 5 Irish people will suffer from depression at some point in their lives
