When psychotherapy and psychopharmacotherapy are not sufficiently successful or side effects slow patients down, neurobiology now provides a very well-tested, proven, rapidly effective and well-tolerated procedure in the form of so-called rTMS,... repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. The principle is very simple: it has been known for a long time that depressives have too little electrical energy in the brain area DLPFC and that with the normalization of this activity the illness disappears. This is done by precise high-intensity electromagnetic stimulation, more precisely by 20 thirty-minute stimulations of the brain area DLPFC (height of the left vertex) with the help of palm-sized stimulation devices. These are positioned very gently without contact, the stimulation is completely painless (about left vertex height, 5 mm distance to the skin). Everything is done computer-controlled with high end technology. according to internationally recognized standards.
New hope, empathy, humanity, etc., I found only here ...
It is a great concern for me to evaluate this pain practice and the associated team. When, after several operations and a subsequent chronic pain condition, I knew no way out and was advised by a neurologist to seek pain therapy treatment, I chose this practice, which was recommended to me. Already the 1st appointment with Dr. Tamme was like a "new beginning" for me. He spoke to me very sensitively about the problems that had brought me to this "state". His empathy and that one is really understood with this "problem", did after months of helplessness and "rigidity" very good. My big goal is to return to my old profession, despite continuing complaints, and Dr. Tamme supports me intensively and competently in this. I am well aware that good medical treatment always depends on how one behaves as a patient, how one cooperates and whether one is open to the experiences and recommendations of the experienced doctor. I have been in treatment for some time now and feel 100% understood, supported and taken seriously. The technical-medical treatment and the human care by the doctor and also by his really very nice and helpful staff is excellent! If I can be helped somewhere to become healthy again or at least to find a way to better deal with the pain and also the connection between body and soul, then here!!!! Many thanks for your unlimited humanity and your humor, which has "saved" my day many a time. In addition, a very special thanks to his staff, who always do everything to make this very good treatment unprecedented! In a very difficult time ("Corona"), the practice has responded indescribably quickly to the situation and has integrated all hygiene measures into the daily routine. THANK YOU for EVERYTHING!
I swear by rTMS and am glad I did. I had an inpatient rTMS 4 years ago in a university clinic and now resorted to the Lüneburg offer because it is easier to combine with work and family. The effect was just as good - only faster and significantly cheaper. I would like to thank the entire team.
I went to Lüneburg for a weekend "refresher" 6 months after my initial visit. Although Dr. Tamme does not routinely recommend and offer this, he complied with my request. I don't want to risk falling back into a condition like the last few years.
I already had an appointment for rTMS treatment at a university clinic in southern Germany, where rTMS is also combined with psychotherapy. However, I would have had to commit to a four-week inpatient stay, which is not compatible with my job. The offer in Lüneburg was that 10 days of sick leave would be enough, and after that I was immediately back in the field. I can only say: it worked. However, Dr. Tamme wants pharmacotherapy to be maintained in order to avoid relapses and to always be able to fall back on sufficient bio-botoxins. I had hoped to be able to do without it, but of course keep the advice. I thank the team and Dr. Tamme.
My wife asked me to write this short report. She came to Lüneburg with her fourth major depressive episode together with me as a companion. I am very pleased that I was involved in everything. Dr. Tamme also really wants the confidants to join in. We did the pure basic program, so without psychotherapy and neurofeedback. Our psychiatrist in Paderborn had advised us to do this because he had already sent several patients to Lüneburg and is very satisfied with the success. He had even sent a close relative there. We traveled back six weeks ago. My wife is already retired at the age of 48 because of the depression, so it is not possible to report a return to work here. However, I can report that the symptoms have improved by a good 70 percent. Even on bad days, my wife is socially functional again, takes an active part in life, and has joined an aerobics group. That would have been unthinkable in the past.
My psychiatrist advised me to go to Lüneburg for rTMS. We don't have anything like that in Berlin. All patients who would have been treated with ECT in the past, he now sends to rTMS, because the measure is almost harmless compared to ECT: no anesthesia, no inpatient stay, none of the ECT risks. I am in the middle of the treatment series (6th day) and just have to give a report now because I like it well in this practice. Everyone is empathetic and helpful.
I was with Dr. Tamme 2.5 years after my first rTMS session in Lüneburg. The effect of the first treatment series over the usual 20 sessions lasted over two years. Then the listlessness and loss of zest for life returned, so I asked Dr. Tamme for his opinion. He advised me to do a shortened series over 5 days (= 10 rTMS sessions), reinforcement by neurofeedback and psychotherapeutic talks. This combination would not yet exist during my first stay. However, I have to say that I consider this approach to be a significant improvement.
Since I had already been in psychotherapy several times, I booked my rTMS time-out in Lüneburg together with neurofeedback, which is applied by Dr. Tamme. I did not know this concept yet, but am now completely convinced of it. While with rTMS the stimulation comes from the outside, Dr. Tamme uses internal stimulation with neurofeedback. That is certainly a big plus. I was very satisfied with my stay, writing these lines on the eve of my departure, so I can not yet report on the long-term effect.
I went to Lüneburg for psychotherapy at the university campus because they combine different methods in an ideal way: repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, neurofeedback to strengthen the brain, psychotherapy (EFT in my case) and continuation/optimization of pharmacotherapy. The price for this is also unbeatable. In no subarea were the possible fees applied, but significantly reduced fee rates. This, and the unusual willingness to be there for the patients even on weekends and in the evenings, must be highly credited to the Tamme couple. I was very well cared for. To my knowledge, there is no comparable therapy offer in Germany. It is therefore not surprising that many patients come in and out of this practice even on weekends.
I had booked the premium treatment package (rTMS+EEG feedback+EFT psychotherapy) and despite my severe depressive episode, I was immediately hooked, especially about the level of attention I received in this practice. Dr. Tamme is a certified Othmer neurofeedback trainer and really understands her field. after lunch we continued with psychotherapy and then rTMS again in the evening. A unique concept. Now 3 months after the end of therapy, I can report a lasting effect that I would not have expected to this extent.
rTMS was my last hope, after inpatient and outpatient therapies had no effect, numerous antidepressants from different drug classes, also their combination and also augmentation strategies with neuroleptics had no effect. I had also already completed a Katenest infusion treatment in Cologne. In the summer of 2018, I then visited Dr. Tamme's practice and did the 10-day program including effect enhancement with neurofeedback and daily EFT psychotherapy. This put me in treatment for over 3 hours a day. It paid off. Already at the end of the 10 days I felt an improvement, which increased considerably during the following 4 weeks. Dr. Stämme had told me exactly this in the opening consultation. I had been on sick leave for the time in Lüneburg and started professionally right after my return. I have made phenomenal progress in outside observation. I now only take Duloxetine 60 mg in the morning, - as Dr. Stämme had recommended.
