Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (or TMS) is a brain-stimulation technique that uses targeted magnetic pulses to turn on the positive mood pathways in areas of the brain that are linked to depression, anxiety, and PTSD. This mostly painless treatment is different from ECT as it does not conduct electricity through the body, does not require anaesthesia nor admission into hospital.
