Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
A new form of treatment
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in medical and psychiatric treatment.
The treatment utilises pulses of magnetic energy, to stimulate or dampen down areas of the brain known to contribute to the medical or psychiatric conditions. TMS has been approved by NICE (2015) as an effective and safe treatment in the UK for the treatment of Depression.
rTMS therapy has also been shown in research studies to be effective in reducing the symptoms of: Anorexia Nervosa, Chronic Neuropathic Pain, Drug Addiction, Depersonalisation Disorder, Fibromyalgia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, PTSD. Recent published research on TMS for each of these disorders can be viewed on the respective tabs on this website.
TMS treatment may be considered when all evidence-based treatments have already been attempted under specialist supervision.
