Veridian rTMS Clinic

Repeated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive psychiatric treatment that uses a magnetic to stimulate the brain. It has been shown to be helpful for depression and a number of other psychiatric conditions. It is a treatment that can potentially help even if the antidepressants you tried before did not help.

rTMS may be the solution you have been looking for.

1. rTMS for depression

If you struggle with depression, and have not had adequate improvement from other treatments such as therapy or medications, or if medications caused highly intolerable issues, you may be looking for alternative treatment options.

Repeated transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive and non-medication treatment technique which utilizes a magnetic field to stimulate the brain. Both scientific studies and clinical experiences have demonstrated that rTMS can help to reduce and potentially take away depression, allowing a patient to regain the joy and function that was previously present. 

2. rTMS for other conditions

In addition to depression, rTMS has also been shown to be helpful in improving symptoms in the following conditions:

- anxiety

- post-COVID19 brain fog

- PTSD
