Targeted Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (tTMS) is a non-invasive treatment that can improve the symptoms of depression .
tTMS uses magnetic pulses to stimulate the neurons in the brain related to mood and anxiety, where communication between them is either overactive or underactive.
It’s medically safe, recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), pain-free and can deliver effective results within two weeks.
Side effects are uncommon and, where they do occur, are very mild.
