Frequently Asked Questions

Here, you will find more information about our methods.

I use medication. Can I start with rTMS?

If you are taking medication for your condition, treatment with rTMS can be carried out simultaneously, and your medication may subsequently be phased out. Each patient is treated individually on a case-by-case basis, so the options will be examined in more detail by your clinician and decisions made based on your own personal situation and treatment plan. Any reduction in medication will be done in consultation with your prescribing doctor if desired.

Do I need a referral from my doctor?

rTMS international is a private practice. You do not, therefore, need a referral from your doctor for treatment at rTMS International.

Does rTMS treatment hurt?

Treatment with rTMS does not hurt and has few to no side effects. You sit in a comfortable chair and the coil that delivers the magnetic pulses is placed above your head. The magnetic pulses stimulate certain areas of the brain and decrease your depression and/ or compulsive symptoms. Treatment with rTMS can cause a mild tension headache after the treatment ends. This dissipates on its own soon afterwards, or you can take an over-the-counter painkiller if required.

What does rTMS treatment cost?

On average, 20 to 30 rTMS sessions are required for lasting effects. We recommend that patients attend talking therapy at the same time as undergoing rTMS treatment. This can be either with our own psychologist or with an external provider. Because the options vary depending on your condition, your requirements and your preferences, it is impossible to state definitively how much your treatment will cost. However, we are happy to schedule an introductory meeting with you during which we will suggest a schedule customised to your needs, and we will be transparent about the cost of your treatment so that you can make an informed decision before proceeding.

Why haven’t I heard of rTMS before?

rTMS is a technique that was only introduced in the late 1990s as a treatment for depression. Since then, a wealth of scientific and clinical research has been conducted to determine the safety of the treatment and to investigate the most effective protocols. It has been established that rTMS is a safe method that, for a large proportion of clients, contributes to the reduction of symptoms of depression and/ or compulsive complaints. Various publications show that clients who had previously had a “therapy-resistant” diagnosis responded positively to treatment with rTMS. rTMS has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the US since 2008; and a number of Dutch health insurance companies have reimbursed clients for the cost of their treatment under supplementary insurance provisions since 2017.
