Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
YaaDmentia, a private & discrete mental health clinic in Sheffield that provides an alternative treatment; repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) therapy for severe Depression. A unique and advanced treatment that is safe, effective and an alternative to anti-depressant medication.
rTMS is a novel and unique equipment and the technique involves placement of a small coil over the scalp, a rapidly alternating current is then passed through the coil wire, producing a magnetic field that passes through the brain. The procedure is completely non-invasive, painless and long-lasting. Furthermore, the key to the success of this treatment is that it stimulates areas of the brain that are key to mood control.
The history of rTMS goes back to 1985 when Prof. Anthony Barker and colleagues first demonstrated magnetic stimulation successfully at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital of Sheffield. Consequently, this opened many opportunities for research and putting forward potential treatment procedures for a variety of diseases with depression treatment being the centre of its success.
"My mood is much better. I no longer cry every day. I am more engaged with family and friends. I am driving again. I noticed no side effects. I would recommend it if prescribed for depression. My depression was resistant to many medications. I have returned twice for short term treatments when I felt my mood begin to drop. Both times TMS restored my mood."
"I decided to go with TMS Therapy, and what I noticed was that after about 2-3 weeks, I felt like I was young again. Like 20-years old. Things about my life that were bothering me sort of just unconsciously fade into the background now. I have interest in other things, simple things like picking up a book, actually reading it, and enjoying...rather than just seeing the words on the page and thinking about other things in my life that were bothering me."
"Before TMS I had nervous energy and stayed active to keep my mind off things, but my anxieties were not under control. Now they are better. I am lively and willing to do more things - I don't isolate as much as I used to. I had no side effects. Meds made me feel sluggish and blah. I would say "Do it!" if you are thinking about TMS. I was so skeptical, but by the third week I could start to tell a difference."
