What is TMS (Transmagnetic Stimulation)?

TMS is a non-invasive treatment where magnetic pulses are delivered to stimulate nerve cells in the part of the brain controlling the mood, which is often underactive in patients with depression.

The world’s largest TMS trial to date found that 49% of the patients responded to the treatment, and 32% achieved full remission. Blumberger et al, 2018, The Lancet.

Benefits of TMS (Transmagnetic Stimulation) as a treatment for depression

  • TMS has been recommended by American Psychiatric Association since 2010 and FDA cleared since 2008 for the treatment of major depressive disorder
  • TMS is non-invasive, outpatient procedure and does not require any anesthesia. As there is no recovery period, people can immediately get back to their usual activities
  • TMS treatment takes 3-37 minutes per treatment and typically requires sessions five days a week for a period of 4-6 weeks
