London Psychiatry Centre

Beat Depression With rTMS

“The London Psychiatry Centre pioneered repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) in the UK, and provided the national institute for health and care excellence with guidance for this treatment.”

 

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is an effective, drug-free, non-invasive treatment for depression which uses magnetic stimulation to stimulate areas of the brain that regulate mood.

The human brain is inherently an electrical organ that functions through the transmission of electrical signals between nerve cells. rTMS treatment works with your body’s natural processes by simply increasing the number and frequency of such transmissions.

 

rTMS employs magnetic energy to stimulate an area of the brain that regulates mood.

As such, it can selectively alter activity in concentrated areas of the brain, bringing about desired effects that have been shown to be helpful in treating a variety of mental health problems.

Research has shown that a large proportion of patients who were unresponsive to antidepressant medication experience a significant improvement in their depressive symptoms when treated with rTMS – one in three of these patients completely recovered.

 

How Does Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) Work?

rTMS influences electrical brain activity through a pulsed magnetic field. This magnetic field is created by passing quick current pulses through a coil of wire. The coil of wire is encased in plastic and placed close to a client’s scalp in order for the magnetic field to be focused on particular areas of the brain. The magnetic field can safely penetrate the scalp and scull without pain, to create a current in targeted brain cells. Because this stimulation is given at regular intervals it is referred to as repetitive TMS, or rTMS.
