Addressing the many sides of depression, the Flow treatment consists of a brain stimulation headset that targets the physical root-cause of depression and a behavioural therapy app to address psychological and environmental factors.
There are many possible causes and depression can be different for everyone. However, most people with depression are prescribed the same treatments; talk therapy and medication. These approaches may work for some but studies and real-world experiences show they do not work for everyone:
6/10 people suffer side effects from medication
More than 1/3 of patients will become treatment-resistant
It can take 20 sessions for 50% of people to feel an improvement from in-person therapy
Combining decades of depression research with enhanced technology allows Flow to provide in-clinic results from the comfort of your home. The intuitive technology backed with proven techniques means there is minimal effort required for maximum reductions of depressive symptoms. Flow is providing those suffering from depression results without compromise.

Depression is associated with lowered activity in the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex, located in the frontal lobe of the brain. The Flow headset delivers gentle electrical signals, to restore activity in brain cells which result in a reduction of depressive symptoms.
This non-invasive brain stimulation technique is called transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), a long-used technology in clinics and now with Flow it’s available for home use in a medically-certified compact device.
Our habits and behaviours can greatly shape our mood and ultimately depression. Behaviours such as getting enough sleep, moving your body, eating well and meditating have been proven to have a significant impact on depression.
The Flow behavioural therapy programme, written by licensed psychologists, supports the creation and incorporation of healthy habits to help reduce your depression. Behavioural therapy offers strategies to cope with depression that can be implemented directly into your daily routines and begin to work right away.
Flow uses a verified treatment schedule based on a decade of tDCS research.
The protocol is split into two phases. Each with a different purpose and schedule:
Flow uses a standardised and globally accepted depression questionnaire called the MADRS-s to help monitor progress. This survey works by examining 9 common symptom areas involved in depression. Each week you will be asked to complete the MADRS-s. Most users see significant results within 4 to 6 weeks of treatment.
Focusing on stimulating the mind mentally and physically allows you the best chance in addressing your underlying causes of depression and feeling better immediately with fewer side effects than medication.
What our users say
"I have been using flow for over 6 months and I’m definitely feeling more positive and this has had an upwards spiraling affect. Starting to eat better , exercise more etc which in turn makes you feel better."

“I hope after my lifetime Flow starts to replace meds. It has been rollercoaster of a life depending on horrible drugs with horrible side effects”

"I’ve moved from a score of about 35 to 12 in the first month on their severity of depression chart. I would say it’s like I no longer feel suicidal or that there is a sense of impending doom"
