TMS for Depression and Anxiety

What is TMS?

TMS — Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation — is a noninvasive treatment method that uses a magnetic field to stimulate neural pathways in the brain, relieving the symptoms of depression. With TMS evolving as a well-tolerated treatment for depression and anxiety, BrainsWay has set itself apart from other TMS companies with its innovative technology. BrainsWay’s patented H-coil design is a delivery method for Deep TMS that maximizes the strength and effectiveness of the stimulation without increasing the risk to users.

The H-coils make BrainsWay’s Deep TMS unique, allowing the magnetic field to spread out over a broader area and penetrate deeper into the brain than any other commercially available TMS systems.

How Does Deep TMS Work?

Millions of people who suffer from depression and anxiety can now gain hope of finding relief with Deep TMS. BrainsWay’s technology presents people with a chance to regain control of their lives with a treatment that is short, fits into their daily routine, and has minimal to no side effects.

Your physician or psychiatrist can help you decide if Deep TMS is right for you. There are already hundreds of clinics administering the treatment, and it is covered by most health insurance plans. BrainsWay Deep TMS is an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia or hospitalization. Deep TMS treatment consists of five sessions a week for four-six weeks, then twice a week as maintenance if necessary. Designed to fit into your daily routine, each session lasts 20 minutes, and you will be able to drive to and from sessions safely.

Is Deep TMS for Depression and Anxiety Safe?

BrainsWay Deep TMS received FDA clearance in 2009, acknowledged for being safe and clinically proven to show results for people with Major Depressive Disorder. People who struggle with anxiety and depression likely know that antidepressant medications don’t always help reduce their symptoms, and may often produce a long list of debilitating side effects. Deep TMS is different as it has no systemic side effects and is generally a well-tolerated treatment option. Some people report pain or discomfort in the jaw or application site, but readjustment of the helmet can relieve any discomfort.

Does Deep TMS Treatment Work?

Deep TMS is continuing to exceed expectations in its effectiveness at treating depression. In a clinical trial of BrainsWay Deep TMS, more than one-third of medication-resistant patients achieved remission from MDD. In real clinical practice, remission rates were even higher with more than half of patients achieving full remission. Deep TMS has been a life-changing treatment for countless people who have struggled with depression for years. Deep TMS was even shown to produce a response from people who were previously resistant to first-line SSRIs, proving the incredible power of BrainsWay Deep TMS.
