Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) uses a magnetic field to change electrical activity on the surface of the brain. By repeating this over time, the function of the targeted area can improve, which can reduce the symptoms of depression.

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a therapeutic medical procedure that was approved by Health Canada in 2002 for the treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as major depression. rTMS is a non-invasive treatment which uses a specifically designed magnetic coil to apply stimulation to target areas in the brain. The treatment utilizes powerful and focused magnetic field pulses to stimulate the neurons in the brain.

The goals for rTMS are to:

  • reduce symptoms of depression
  • improve mood and ability to manage daily activities
