Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) uses magnetic waves to reach a deep, targeted area of the brain called the limbic system. Advanced research shows that improperly functioning neurons and nerve cells in the limbic system strongly correlate to depression symptoms. Therefore, treatments that promote healthy neuron growth and function alleviate depression symptoms.
Deep TMS technology was created by Brainsway Ltd. It is not a pretty device, but it is an effective one. A specially designed coil is housed in a device that fits on the head. The technology uses magnetic waves to rejuvenate the brain in a targeted way.
Several antidepressant treatments aim to stimulate neuron growth and function, but often come with significant side effects.
Deep TMS alleviates depression symptoms without the significant side effects.
The technology is based on patents from the National Institute of Health. It has gone through over 60 double-blind clinical trials and been FDA-approved for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder and Treatment Resistant Depression. In Europe, deep TMS has been CE approved to treat depression, OCD, bipolar disorder, PTSD, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic pain, and assist with smoking cessation. Patients have also seen beneficial results for the treatment of chronic migraines.
Deep TMS is a technological advancement that shows the potential to be game-changing.
Nausea, insomnia, anxiety, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, diarrhea, dry mouth, and sweating
Can be prescribed for an indefinite or permanent period
Results usually achieved in 4 – 6 weeks.
Possible, mild and temporary discomfort at the application site, very rare risk of seizure
20-minute sessions over a period less than 3 months
Results usually achieved within the first 4 weeks.
Treatment consists of 20-minute sessions where the patient sits in a comfortable chair with the deep TMS technology fitted on their head.
Deep TMS has helped thousands treat their depression
We know how many things you’ve tried, wondered about, researched, looked into, heard of, and invested in to find a treatment that works. Knowledge is important. Too many times, people are prescribed treatments without full knowledge of what they’re getting into. We encourage you to do your own research. The links below are a good start.
