Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation & Ketamine Treatment in Cairns
Is TMS Therapy right for you?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is usually used for patients who haven’t had success relieving their symptoms through medication or psychotherapy.
The advantages of
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy
The majority of patients experience relief within several weeks.
Patients improve during treatment and continue to feel better after treatment is complete.
TMS is an outpatient treatment that uses magnets the strength of an MRI placed on the head.

What is Transcranial
TMS is an effective, safe and non-invasive neuro stimulation procedure. Magnetic pulses are used to activate targeted areas of your brain where decreased activity causes depression, anxiety and PTSD.
Depression therapy that heals
Depression is often treated with antidepressant medications, however, this isn’t effective for everyone. TMS offers patients who have struggled to achieve remission another safe and effective treatment option.
Here at QueenslandTMS we have novel and emerging treatment commencing in February 2023. This is an exciting new treatment for difficult to treat depression.
This novel medication offers individuals suffering from depression that have not responded sufficiently to two or more anti-depressants or standard care with their General Practitioner or psychiatrist a new option for treatment.
