Emma Kenny, This Morning: TMS Addiction Treatment

‘This Morning’ resident psychologist, Emma Kenny, explored the difficulties of addiction last month, including gambling, alcohol, drug dependency.

When she mentioned TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) as a potential form of treatment, search and enquiries at TMS provider Smart TMS rocketed, as viewers wanted to know more about the revolutionary treatment.

TMS Treatment for Addiction

TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Treatment. It is a medication-free and non-invasive treatment which works directly on the brain in order to increasing or decreasing activity in the treatment regions of the brain.

In addiction treatment, TMS works on the neural networks in the brain’s reward system in order to ‘break’ the craving, bingeing and withdrawal cycle that addicts experience and struggle with.

Smart TMS was the first UK clinic to offer treatments for anything other than depression.  Addiction that may be treated with this innovative and medication-free treatment include:
