THE FIRST TO BRING YOU Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation THERAPY IN NZ

TMS is a non-invasive technique for  modulating the brain, helping it going back to function in a healthy way. It is used to improve symptoms of depression and other psychiatric and neurological problems, by stimulating healthy communication between the nerve cells. This treatment should be especially considered if you have not responded to antidepressant medication, cannot tolerate their side-effects, or simply prefer a drug free treatment.

Book your appointment to see if TMS is right for you.
