TMS Maintenance Sessions
TMS maintenance sessions are designed to preserve the benefits of TMS treatment.
Some of the benefits of TMS treatment are as follows:
- Improved and stable mood
- Increased motivation and self-confidence
- Improved cognitive abilities such as concentration
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced agitation and irritability
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation works by exciting or inhibiting certain parts of the brain. It is this stimulation that activates the brain’s neuroplasticity function.
However, for some patients due to bio-psycho-social circumstances, the effects of TMS treatment may wear off. Hence, further maintenance sessions may be required.
Therefore, maintenance sessions can vary from 5 to 10 sessions and it can be intensive or just a few sessions a week.
