Smoking Cessation

Smoking remains a major public health challenge in Australia and remains one of the largest causes of preventable death and illness in our community. Pioneer Health offers a TMS-Assisted Smoking Cessation Program (TMS-ASCP) to patients. TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Therapy) is a non-invasive, drug-free, and scientifically studied method that targets the root causes of addiction by stimulating specific areas of the brain responsible for cravings and withdrawal symptoms. TMS works by delivering magnetic pulses to the brain’s prefrontal cortex, which regulates decision-making, behaviour, and addiction.
