We are delighted to be working with DR Colin Robertson who is offering an exciting new therapy for depression. Targeted Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non medication effective treatment for depression. Dr Robertson records the natural electrical activity in your brain using an EEG, he then analyses the results to identify patterns of anomalous brain activity. Colin than uses these results to specifically target the magnetic stimulation to your needs in this unique and exciting new treatment.

 

What is TMS?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive, pain free method to stimulate areas of the brain to improve symptoms of depression.

The TMS device is a coil of plastic-coated wire and is about the size and thickness of a typical oval cake tin.

The coil has a powerful and rapidly changing electrical current passed through it which produces a pulse of magnetism.

This pulse can produce a secondary current which when placed on the head generates a magnetic field which passes through the scalp with little resistance, and causes the underlying brain cells to activate.

This electrical activity does not spread throughout the brain. There is no damage to the brain, no serious side effects and no long-term adverse effect from the pulse of magnetism.

The TMS pulses can increase or decrease the activity in targeted areas of the brain depending on your individual requirements.

TMS for treatment of depression and anxiety

This treatment was recently highlighted in a episode of ‘Trust me I am a Doctor’ on BBC2, showing trials of TMS in US service men returning home from combat. TMS used in USA on trust me I’m a Doctor BB2
