TMS for Depression

A safe and medication-free option with long-term effects

Magnetic Stimulation therapy is now available in Australia and is a safe and recommended treatment for people with Depression who have not responded to other therapies (e.g. medication). Therapists at neuroCare use an approach which combines TMS and Psychotherapy, scientifically-proven to be more effective than either therapy alone.

Advantages of Outpatient TMS for Depression


Safe

TMS Therapy is focused on the areas of the brain that control mood so it does not negatively affect thinking and memory functions, or any other normal brain functions.


Comfortable

During TMS Therapy, there is no need for sedation or anesthesia; patients are awake, alert and are able to resume normal activities after a treatment session. We administer TMS in a convenient outpatient setting, so there is no hospitalisation needed.


No side effects

TMS is 100% free of medication side effects. Unlike traditional antidepressant medications, TMS Therapy does not cause weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, fatigue or negative cognitive effects.


Efficient

An average of 20 sessions is typically needed, with sessions held at least twice per week. After a course of TMS Therapy, most patients enjoy long-lasting benefits.


Natural

TMS Therapy uses magnetic energy to stimulate brain cells which helps them to naturally release needed chemicals necessary for proper mood regulation.


Scientifically Proven

We only apply protocols which have shown the latest clinical efficacy. By combining TMS with Psychotherapy, studies show this is effective in 66% of the population who suffer Depression.
