TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic
Stimulation, or sometimes rTMS, referring to
repetitive TMS. It’s a non-invasive, safe, Health
Canada approved treatment that uses brain
stimulation to relieve depression symptoms.
TMS directs recurring magnetic field energy
pulses to the front of the head to stimulate
dormant nerve cells in the brain. By effectively
“waking up” sleepy neurons within the mood
centre of the brain, TMS helps treatment resistant
depression and has been approved by
Health Canada in the treatment of anxiety,
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, brain injury
and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
