Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, known as rTMS or TMS, is a safe and effective treatment for depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). TMS is an exciting evidence-based treatment for memory and cognition.
TMS was approved by Health Canada for treatment resistant major depressive disorder (MDD) in 2002. TMS is used, and funded, around the world, however in BC is not yet a funded treatment.
With knowledge of the challenges in treatment of mental health concerns like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and OCD as well as memory and cognition, Optimind has brought TMS to Vancouver Island. As the first to offer TMS on Vancouver Island, and one of the few original providers in BC, we have a wealth of experience. Our team has specialized training and certification from world-leading experts in noninvasive neural stimulation (TMS), notably at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Canada’s largest mental health
teaching hospital’s Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Intervention at CAMH, and International Clinical TMS Certification through the University of Maastricht.
From the technician providing your TMS, to the medical professional prescribing it, you will benefit from a team with the best in education, training, certification, and experience.
In addition, we offer specific treatments to enhance or as appropriate, as an alternative to TMS. This includes RehaCom Cognitive Training.

With a safe, effective, evidence-based treatment with next to no side effects you can Just. Feel. Better.
