Neurostimulation TMS Therapy
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy: a safe treatment option.
TMS is a painless, effective and non-invasive procedure known to improve symptoms of depression and other disorders for many sufferers. It has been found to be an effective alternative or augmentation for those who experience treatment-resistant depression.
TMS can be used with other treatments for depression like medication and psychotherapy, or alternately if tolerability is an issue. It is also successfully used for treatment of anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), substance dependency recovery, chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in many hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide.
A course of treatment involves 20-30 sessions over several weeks, a single session usually lasting only a few minutes. Monitoring of mood symptoms continues throughout on our Re-centre Mentegram web application, and by regular clinician and psychiatrist reviews. Return courses of TMS as an effective maintenance therapy are easily possible.
Your psychiatrist at Re-centre can further introduce the opportunity of TMS to you as part of a comprehensive assessment and treatment package.
