To date, millions of patients worldwide have been treated by this non-invasive TMS technology.  The scope of treatment of nTMS includes:

*Partially off-label treatments: proven in medical studies, further research reports and official reviews are pending.

What is navigated TMS?

nTMS is a safe, effective and non-invasive new medical technology. In recent years, it has been recognized by Europe and the United States and has been widely used in the treatment of brain-related diseases.

The centre’s brain magnetic stimulation system cooperates with the 3D brain image of magnetic resonance (MRI) for navigation, and accurately and concentrates the magnetic pulse energy to the correct position of the brain, providing customers with personalized, effective and highly safe TMS therapy. 


Currently, well-known universities around the world are conducting large-scale clinical studies to improve TMS technology. One of the widely recognized uses is in treatment regimens for depression:

  1. The entire course of treatment lasts 4-8 weeks
  2. 3-5 treatments per week
  3. Each session lasts approximately 19-37 minutes
  4. The patient is completely awake without anesthesia

TMS equipment is operated by trained medical personnel. The treatment centre also provides advice and assistance from relevant professionals. For inquiries, please contact the centre.

* FDA certification means that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has carefully evaluated the clinical benefits and risks of the associated medical device, and confirmed that the technology is supported by extensive clinical data.

**CE certification is a safety certification issued by the European Union to certify that a product does not endanger human safety and health.

TMS treatment is an non-invasive procedure. No sedation or medication is required. Patients remain totally conscious during treatment sessions and resume normal daily activities after the therapy.


Combined the 3D Brain Imaging with TMS, our TMS visualizes patient’s brain anatomy so as to ensure that the treatment is accurately carried out.


With abundant clinical evidence, TMS has already been approved by FDA in 2008 for its efficacy to treat antidepressant-resistant depression. It also has CE-approval which attests its safety on humans.


TMS only modulates the brain activities without altering the body chemistry. It has none of the side effects that drug induces, such as weight gain, fatigue, and nausea.

The most comfortable and effective treatment experience

TMS uses non-invasive magnetic pulses to improve neural activities. Expert scientific research has shown that it can effectively enhance mood, improve memory and cognitive abilities, and treat other brain-related diseases such as depression, anxiety, dementia, tinnitus and Parkinson’s disease etc., with remarkable effect.

Compared with other TMS devices of the same type, studies have shown that the Apollo TMS is extremely quiet, allowing you to relax and perform treatments in a peaceful and comfortable environment. The course of treatment generally lasts from 19 to 37 minutes. Upon completion of treatment, you can return to normal work and activities immediately.


Another advantage of our system is its navigation technology. Through the MRI brain scan of the client, a 3D brain model is constructed, so that the brain stimulation can become a kind of “visible” treatment. The instrument can accurately target the brain precisely and provide stimulation to the targeted area to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.


We use stereoscopic magnetic resonance imaging (3D-MRI) of the brain for personalized positioning. This technology is generally used in advanced brain neurosurgery. Precise navigation signals guide the setting of the most ideal and appropriate TMS intensity for a personalized treatment plan.


The safety of the treatment is definitely our top concern. The Apollo TMS ™ system is specially equipped with multiple safety protections, and the operation strictly follows the clinical safety guidelines established by the European and American authorities to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.


Our team includes a clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist to provide diagnosis and consultation. The treatment is managed by professional medical staff trained in Germany.

Comparison between Navigated Apollo TMS ™ and other non-navigated rTMS systems

Do you have questions about depression or anxiety?

Let us understand your situation and find the most appropriate treatment for you!


Different from the common brain magnetic excitation system, the Apollo Navigated TMS system is equipped with precise navigation technology, combined with the digital stereo brain imaging function, to obtain the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the patient's brain, and upload the image to the system. , so that the navigation system can precisely stimulate the specific targeted brain. This is to ensure that patients can receive the most accurate, most personal, most effective and highly safe brain magnetic stimulation treatment. 

In contrast, ordinary brain stimulation systems are not equipped with a navigation system, and can only use specific measurements of the scalp to estimate where the stimulation is needed, which is more difficult to target other parts of the brain. Therefore, the brain magnetic stimulation system without navigation will have higher errors and may not achieve the ideal therapeutic effect.

In the treatment of depression, TMS technology has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as early as 2008. A large number of large-scale clinical studies have proved that magnetic brain stimulation is a non-invasive, safe and effective treatment for depression.

At present, the use of the TMS technology to treat Alzheimer's Disease has applied for the US Food and Drug Administration's Pending FDA-approval, and it is believed that the results will be available by the end of the year.

The use of TMS technology to treat other psychiatric or neurological diseases, such as anxiety disorders, neuropathic pain, stroke, tinnitus and stroke rehabilitation, most of which are supported by clinical research evidence, and the technology has also been issued by the European Union. European conformity certification (CE-marked) in which the safety is guaranteed.

Generally, the duration of the treatment including all preparatory work is about 25-40 minutes. The patient sits comfortably in a chair, and the treatment centre plays music and videos to relax the patient, and the patient remains fully awake and conscious throughout the treatment

During the TMS treatment, the patient will not feel great pain. Patients might experience a slight tap of the instrument on the scalp, and some patients will experience mild scalp tenderness, but these sensations should disappear quickly after the course of treatment. Upon treatment completion, the patient can resume normal activities immediately.

A large number of clinical studies have proved that TMS is extremely well tolerated and has almost no side effects. A small number of patients may experience temporary side effects, including headache, scalp discomfort, dizziness, and tingling of the scalp. In rare cases (about 0.1% chance), patients may experience transient epilepsy, but this treatment centre is supported by a professional medical team that are qualified to handle these situations.

No. Magnetic brain stimulation uses the same type and strength of magnetic field as Magnetic Resonance (MR) technology, and MRI has been widely used by the medical community around the world, with tens of millions of patients using it without reflecting long-term adverse consequences.

If the patient has a metal device implanted in the head or the head or there is a non-removable metal object around the head, they are not suitable to receive TMS therapy. People who have implanted physiological signal devices in their bodies, such as artificial cardiac pacemakers , or who have a history of epilepsy, are also not suitable for TMS therapy.

In past clinical medical studies, the average patient received TMS treatment 5 times a week for 19-37 minutes for 4-6 weeks, and the symptoms of the average patient began to be relieved in the 4th week of treatment. After the course of treatment is complete, it is up to the judgment of the clinical psychologist to decide whether the patient needs follow-up treatment.

In past clinical studies, TMS can be used safely with antidepressants without adverse consequences. As for the concomitant use with other psychiatric drugs, there are no research results to confirm, please discuss with your psychiatrist before use.
