What is TMS Therapy?

 

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a revolutionary treatment that utilises magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in specific areas of the brain associated with mood regulation. This painless therapy involves placing a specialised device against the scalp, which sends magnetic pulses to target brain regions, helping to improve symptoms of various mental health conditions.

Benefits of TMS Therapy at East Side Recovery
    • Noninvasive and Painless TMS therapy is a noninvasive procedure, meaning there is no need for surgery or anaesthesia. Patients can comfortably undergo treatment while awake, with minimal discomfort during the session.
    • Effective for Treatment-Resistant Conditions TMS has been shown to be particularly beneficial for individuals who have not responded to traditional treatments for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and substance abuse. It offers a new hope for those who have struggled to find relief through medication or psychotherapy.
    • No Systemic Side Effects Unlike medications, which can cause systemic side effects such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, or gastrointestinal issues, TMS therapy is localised to the brain. This reduces the risk of unwanted side effects, making it a safer option for many patients.
    • Quick and Convenient Sessions Each TMS treatment session lasts between 15 to 30 minutes, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. Patients can return to their daily activities immediately after each session, with no downtime required.
    • Long-Lasting Results Many patients experience significant and lasting improvements in their symptoms after completing a course of TMS therapy. Continued follow-up and maintenance sessions can further enhance these benefits, promoting sustained mental health and wellbeing.
