TMS or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a noninvasive FDA-approved treatment used to stimulate the brain to improve symptoms of depression. Although proven highly effective, this treatment can cost a fortune in most western countries. Prices may vary but you can expect to pay an average of $300 per session, which is equivalent to $10,000 for 30 required sessions.
However, cost should not stop you from getting this highly effective treatment, as this is very affordable in Southeast Asian countries. In Singapore, where you can expect better health care system, you will only have to pay a fraction of the cost. Often, you'll be able to save up to 75%.
