I don't know of specific individuals who have found relief with MS from a tms oriented approach.

MS is an auto immune disorder. In theory, the TMS model could/should help auto immune conditions. However, I suggest that patients begin with conventional medical care for MS and then add to that a mindbody awareness, introspection, journaling, therapy, etc.
