What to Expect

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy (TMS therapy) uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. TMS Therapy is performed in a psychiatrist's office under their supervision while you remain awake and alert.

Short, simple outpatient procedure

Treatment is administered by a trained technician and overseen by a psychiatrist. The technician will familiarise you with the equipment and treatment procedure prior to commencing the first session. At the first treatment appointment we will determine the optimal placement and strength of the magnetic field. Each subsequent treatment will last approximately 37 minutes during which you will be awake and alert. During treatment, patients are fully conscious and able to read, watch a DVD, listen to music, or converse with the technician.

The magnetic pulses make a loud clicking sound and feel like a tapping on the scalp but do not result in more than mild discomfort. During or after treatment you may experience headache or pain at the site of stimulation. These are common side effects which often improve as further treatment sessions are administered. If necessary, you can treat this pain with an over-the-counter analgesic.

After your TMS therapy procedure

TMS is an outpatient procedure which means that no hospitalisation is required. The TMS therapy procedure itself is non-invasive, and requires no anesthesia or sedation. After the treatment you can drive and resume your normal activity. TMS therapy is non-invasive, meaning it does not involve surgery, and has no systemic effects.

Duration: The typical TMS therapy treatment course consists of 20 to 30 sessions. Sessions are usually Monday through Friday over 4 to 6 weeks, excluding weekends and holidays.

Each treatment session is approximately 37 minutes.
