OUR TREATMENTS

rtms

Transcranial Magnetic stimulation rTMS

We offer different protocols including qEEG guided rTMS (quantitative electroencephalography).

What is guided TMS?

Guided TMS uses the qEEG brain mapping method to target specific parts of the brain, allowing for a precise and tailored treatment plan and results.

This technique measures existing electrical impulses in the cerebral cortex, as neurons “light up” when we think, act and feel the world around us. Thus, EEG allows us to see brain activity in real time.

qEEG stands for quantitative EEG. A modern type of EEG analysis that involves recording digital EEG signals that are processed, transformed and analyzed using complex mathematical methods. algorithms.

Guided TMS vs Standard TMS

What differentiates guided TMS from standard TMS therapy is that it allows us to tailor your treatment plan and measure the neurological outcomes of TMS in real time. As a result, this makes guided TMS treatment more precise than standard TMS.

The information we gain from qEEG studies allows us to provide personalized TMS therapy guided by your unique brain. waves.

psilocybin-therapy

Psilocybin Therapy

Also known as psychedelic-assisted therapy using psilocybin, involves the use of the psychedelic compound psilocybin, which is found in certain species of mushrooms, in conjunction with psychotherapy to treat various mental health conditions. This therapeutic approach has gained significant attention and research interest in recent years due to its potential to help individuals with conditions like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction. Here are some key points about psilocybin therapy:

Psychotherapy: Psilocybin therapy involves the administration of a carefully measured dose of psilocybin in a controlled and supportive therapeutic setting. This experience is then guided by trained psychotherapists who help individuals explore their thoughts, emotions, and past experiences.

Conditions Treated: Psilocybin therapy has shown promise in the treatment of conditions such as depression, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and substance use disorders. Research is ongoing to better understand its effectiveness and safety for these conditions.

The Special Access Program (SAP) is a program run by Health Canada that allows health practitioners (such as licensed physicians) to request, for patient use, drugs that are not sold legally in Canada Only for treatment resistant depression (TRD). Our psychiatrists are familiar with this process.

Setting: Psilocybin therapy sessions typically take place in a safe and comfortable environment, often in a clinical or therapeutic setting. The presence of our trained therapists is essential to provide support and guidance during the experience.

mdma-pills

MDMA Therapy

MDMA therapy, often referred to as “MDMA-assisted therapy,” is a therapeutic approach that uses the psychoactive substance MDMA (3,4-
methylenedioxymethamphetamine) in combination with psychotherapy to treat various mental health conditions, particularly post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here are some key points about MDMA therapy:

MDMA: MDMA is a synthetic drug known for its empathogenic and entactogenic effects. It can induce feelings of emotional closeness, increased empathy, and decreased fear and defensiveness. These effects make it a potential tool for facilitating psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy: MDMA therapy involves administering a controlled dose of MDMA in the context of a psychotherapy session. The psychotherapy is typically conducted by trained therapists who guide the individual through the experience, encouraging introspection and exploration of their emotions, thoughts, and past trauma.

Conditions Treated: MDMA therapy is primarily being studied for its effectiveness in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Research suggests that MDMA may help individuals process and alleviate the symptoms of PTSD. Clinical trials are ongoing to determine its efficacy for other mental health conditions.

Setting: Sessions of MDMA therapy take place in a controlled and supportive
environment, often within a clinical setting. The presence of trained therapists is essential to ensure the safety and well-being of the individual during the experience.

Safety and Monitoring: Safety is a top priority in MDMA therapy. The administration of MDMA is carefully monitored, and medical oversight is provided to minimize risks and manage any potential adverse effects.

Legality: Canada recently amended its Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) to allow for psilocybin and MDMA therapy in limited circumstances. Subsection 56(1) of the CDSA will exempt medical providers from enforcement of the CDSA when providing psilocybin and MDMA treatment to patients suffering serious or terminal health conditions. Thus, providing a new pathway for patients to access psychedelic treatment, and another example of the medicinal approach to psychedelic legalization. Our psychiatrists are familiar with this process.

neurofeedback

Neurofeedback

Treatment with EEG neurofeedback is based on the theory that once individuals understand their brain activity and learn to manipulate their own brain waves, they will be able to continue to do so, long after the therapy has ended. Some studies have followed patients for as long as 10 years after being treated with EEG neurofeedback and have shown no significant loss of treatment gains.

We apply electrodes to the scalp to listen in on brainwave activity. We process the signal by computer, and we extract information about certain key brainwave frequencies. We show the ebb and flow of this activity back to the person, who attempts to change the activity level.
