TREATMENT

REPETITIVE TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION (rTMS)

RETRAINS THE BRAIN'S NEURAL PATHWAYS

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a therapy that uses brain stimulation to treat depression and anxiety since 1985. It generates a targeted magnetic field to stimulate certain areas of the brain in order to retain the neural pathways in the brain.

HOW IT WORKS

During rTMS you will sit or recline while an electromagnetic coil is placed against the forehead near the area of your brain that regulates mood.

 

The coil then passes magnetic pulses to a targeted part of your brain. This induces an electrical current in specific nerve cells. It’s thought that these electrical currents stimulate brain cells in a complex way that can reduce depression by creating new neural pathways.

What does the rTMS treat?


It has been our experience and understanding that rTMS may be used as a treatment tool for various neurological and psychiatric disorders including migraines, strokes, Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, tinnitus depression and auditory hallucinations.




Is the rTMS safe for everyone?


Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a safe and noninvasive procedure.




How long does an rTMS session last?


A session lasts between 20 to 30 minutes.




How does rTMS benefit the body?


rTMS stimulates the nerve cells in the brain by using magnetic fields.
