Compassionate TMS Treatment at Neurocentrix East Melbourne.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a recognised treatment for depression and other neurological conditions.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of TMS in the treatment of depression, particularly in patients who have not responded well to anti-depressant medication.
TMS is a non-invasive treatment delivered by an external magnetic coil placed lightly touching the scalp. The coil sends repetitive electromagnetic pulses to stimulate neuron activity in specific surface areas of the brain that regulate mood.
Ample parking is located adjacent to the clinic and our spacious and comfortable treatment rooms will make for a relaxing and comfortable treatment experience.
