What is TMS?
TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) is a
non-invasive neuromodulation technique.
It has a very direct influence on brain physiology. The
basic principle of TMS is the application of short
magnetic pulses over the scalp of a subject with the aim
of inducing electrical currents in the neurons of the
cortex. A typical TMS device consists of a stimulator
that can generate a strong electrical current, and a
coil in which the fluctuating electrical current
generates magnetic pulses.
If the magnetic pulses are delivered in the proximity of
a conductive medium, e.g. the brain, a secondary current
in the conductive material (e.g. neurons) is induced .
In the practice of TMS, a subject is seated in a chair
and an operator positions the coil above the scalp of
the subject, and the TMS pulses are applied.
MK Prosopsis is the only company
in Cyprus and Greece that specializes in TMS
provision and installation.

Why Choose TMS For Stress Treatment?
Millions of adults experience mental health
conditions, and anxiety disorders . Each year, about 1
out of 20 people struggles with an anxiety disorder
such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic
disorder or social anxiety. Psychotherapy and
medications can be effective at treating these
conditions; however many patients still seek
effective, alternative methods like TMS for stress to
add to their treatment plan.
TMS For Stress Treatment: What Is Transcranial
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is an
FDA-approved noninvasive procedure that uses a focused
electromagnetic field to stimulate nerve cells in the
brain to improve symptoms of depression and anxiety.
It is a safe, painless procedure with minimal side
effects that has been available since the 1990s.
TMS For Stress Treatment: How Does Transcranial
Magnetic Stimulation Work?
To perform TMS, a healthcare professional places a
round coil on the patient�s head near the part of the
brain that appears to be related to the patient�s
symptoms. The coil produces rapid, forceful magnetic
pulses for about 20 minutes, five times a week over a
period of six to eight weeks.
TMS For Stress Treatment: What Are The Benefits Of
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?
Unlike medications and other traditional treatments
for anxiety and depression, TMS has few to no side
effects, and it does not appear to cause withdrawal
symptoms when used to treat anxiety disorders.
TMS For Stress Treatment: What Conditions Can TMS
Be Used To Treat?
The FDA has approved the use of TMS to treat adults
with major depressive disorder that is resistant to at
least one antidepressant medication. The FDA has also
approved TMS for use in adults with
obsessive-compulsive disorder when accompanied by
depression, and for treatment of adult patients who
have panic disorder with or without agoraphobia.
TMS is a safe, noninvasive procedure that has few to
no side effects and can be used in combination with
medications or psychotherapy to treat anxiety
