Introducing RTMs Treatments
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a form of deep brain stimulation approved by NICE (National Institute for Health Care and Excellence) in 2015 as a particularly powerful method of treatment for depression. It has also been successful in the treatment of a number of other disorders such as chronic pain, migraine, tinnitus, eating disorders, and addiction. TMS Therapy is entirely non-invasive and has few side effects. It doesn’t involve any anaesthesia, surgery or oral medication.
The session involves placing a treatment coil on the skull next to the area of the brain most associated with controlling the medical or psychiatric condition being treated. A magnetic pulse will be passed through your skull into your brain which creates a small electric current and in turn stimulates neurons to become more active through a process called electromagnetic induction. The treatment is administered by Consultant Psychiatrist Dr. Sarkhel who specialises in Mental Health and has had over 25 years experience in the field and his team.
