Painless, Immediate Relief from PTSD

Benefits of rTMS for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

This type of treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is non-invasive and requires no medication. We understand that when it comes to PTSD treatment, psychologically and medicinally based solutions simply don’t work for some people. Furthermore, these pills can often incur some nasty and unwanted side effects and indeed for many, medication is simply ineffective.

The rTMS method may be used alongside medication but doesn’t require it to start seeing results. Furthermore, our process is pain-free and therefore requires absolutely no anaesthetics or sedatives. As well as avoiding unwanted side-effects, rTMS acts much faster than anti-depressants and doesn’t require the patient to change their daily activities, as our method is based on science and not routine.

How rTMS Can Treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

rTMS ( Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation), is a treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that is non-invasive, medication free and easily tolerated by patients.

This technology has been developing for over 30 years and since 2008 has been recognised by the FDA in America as a treatment for PTSD, as well as being approved in England BY NICE, where we are proud to be the first centre in the north-west to provide this treatment.

rTMS works by stimulating targeted areas of the brain, associated with PTSD, with magnetic pulses. These magnetic pulses target the nerve cells in the region of the brain which control mood, it can activate regions of the brain that have decreased activity.

"After many years of trying many different medications, therapies and even ECT, I am so pleased to have found Tranquil TMS. I have been having treatment for a few weeks now, and there has been significant improvement in both anxiety and depression problems.

I am taking much less medication and have had no side effects. I was concerned TMS would aggravate my (almost always present) stress headaches, but on the contrary, they have now disappeared completely. Also, the staff are lovely. Friendly, courteous and genuinely care about what they are doing. Highly recommended."


Mrs PM - Patient

"Having suffered with depression for 15 years I entered a period of crisis for which I sought the help from TranquilTMS. My initial consultation identified that before depression treatment should start it would be beneficial to treat anxiety. This was excellent advice and within a week of anxiety treatment I felt able to cope with normal life without panic and nervousness.

I have received 20 sessions for depression and have seem my condition dramatically improve week by week, being virtually back to leading a normal happy life as a working mother of three. Without the intervention of TMS I feel sure my episode of depression would of continued for a longer a period of time and this treatment has provided a fast and effective recovery which has allowed me to have minimal interruption to family life and my employment.

The procedure is painless and results are immediate without the introduction of changes in medication. I was able to continue with normal activities immediately after the procedure such as driving.

I thoroughly recommend TMS treatment for both anxiety and depression and should I have future episodes of depression or anxiety I will have no hesitation in using this treatment again.
Both Dr Deshpande and Nurse provide an excellent service making me feel relaxed and at ease with the whole process. They both have a passion for the treatment of mental health and the service they provided has helped me recover much quicker than the normal medication route."

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions will I need?

TMS treatment is generally given 5 days a week for up to 4-6 weeks. The number of sessions needed for positive results is different for each person. This will be decided by the consultant and will be discussed at initial appointment.

What does a rTMS treatment feel like?

You may feel a tapping sensation on the area of your scalp underneath the plate, in rhythm with the magnetic pulses. Other than this, however, there are no physical sensations. Patients often choose to read, listen to music or rest during the sessions.

What is the difference between ECT and rTMS therapy?

Both ECT and rTMS are accepted treatments for depression and other mood-related conditions. One of the main differences, however, is that rTMS treatment is non-invasive and also does not require any anaesthetic. While there are a range of side-effects associated with ECT, only minimal side effects are related to rTMS therapy.

Is there a recovery period after rTMS session?

There is no recovery period after a rTMS session, and you can resume your daily activities immediately. Some patients may feel mild scalp irritation or tingling after their first session, but this usually goes away on subsequent visits.

What are the contraindications to rTMS?

Anyone with metal implants, aneurysm clips and coils, cardiac pacemakers, cardiac defibrillators, facial tattoos that may have magnetic ink or ink that is sensitive to magnets, implanted stimulators, metal implants in the ears or eyes, stents in the neck or brain, bullet fragments or shrapnel near the head. Contraindications also include epilepsy and other neurological conditions.

What are the benefits of rTMS?
  • Easily Tolerated
  • Non-invasive and no medication

“Recent NICE guidance (IPG 542) concluded that evidence on rTMS for depression showed no major safety concerns.” -The Royal College of Psychiatrists
