Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in medical and psychiatric treatment.
TMS 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.
TMS therapy has also been shown in research studies to be effective in reducing the symptoms of: Anorexia Nervosa, Chronic Neuropathic Pain, Cocaine Dependence, Depersonalisation Disorder, Fibromyalgia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, PTSD and Tinnitus. 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.
TMS is now an outpatient procedure performed in the treatment rooms at Smart TMS Clinics, London.
