Who is Neuromed?
Last year we met with Ivan and Lisa Murray, the founders of Neuromed Clinic. They are some of the most welcoming, kind hearted and friendly clients we have had the privilege of of working with. They explained their vision to transform lives and treat those suffering from anxiety and depression with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) . They wanted to establish the first TMS clinic in Edmonton and help millions of people with this successful service. We at Nordic, believe that mental health is very important and were so excited to be a part of this transformational and life altering service. Simply put, it is life-changing and we have witnessed incredible transformations in patients who conquered their depression and no longer need medication to get through the day.
What is TMS?
TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) treatment is a gentle process that treats using magnetic pulses. These pulses stimulate under-active brain cells, activating them to work more efficiently.The treatment is approved by Health Canada and Food and Drug Administration. It improves or offers complete remission for depression and anxiety. The usual recommended number of treatments is between 20-30 over a period of 4-6 weeks.

Developing The Brand
Fuelled with passion and excitement about the project, we went ahead and devised a marketing strategy to help people engage with Neuromed Clinic. The most challenging part was developing the brand. We had to develop a unique name, due to trademark law, that could have a global brand here in Canada and in Europe. After many weeks of diligent work we developed the Neuromed Clinic name and logo. We feel this name is professional and also articulate as to the service they provide.
Marketing and Advertising
We developed and produced a commercial advertisement for Facebook, YouTube, and theatres in 4k resolution to gain attention and drive awareness about the service. The results were through the roof. The videos we launched were real life patient testimonials that discussed their experience using the service, and how their lives have improved since starting the treatment. The ads have been performing extremely well.
Since the hugely successful launch of the Edmonton location, they recently expanded to Dublin, Ireland where they opened a second location at the Northbrook Clinic. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence in the United Kingdom recently approved the service in 2015. We’ve had an amazing time marketing in Europe
