Transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy or TMS therapy is an FDA-approved, non-drug treatment for Major Depression, PTSD, Anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder. In TMS therapy, painless electrical currents and magnetic pulses are used to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. The non-invasive therapy targets the part of the brain that regulates mood and can be used alone or together with medication and or psychotherapy.
Psychotherapy and anti-depressants have little to no benefit for one-third of people who seek treatment for depression. TMS therapy benefits approximately 50% to 60% of people who have not benefited from medications.
A neural scan system provides an objective and expansive functional measurement of the brain and cognition by multiple electrophysiological technologies combined into one portable, non-invasive, easy-to-use device in the office.
For treatment of Major Depression, PTSD, Anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder.
BrainsWay deep repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation
BrainsWay deep repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation: uses a cushioned helmet that is fitted to the patient’s head. Within the helmet is a specially designed H-coil that is parallel to the target bundles, and administers a convergence of numerous electric impulses from various directions. The coin elements are tangential to the patient’s head and close to target brain regions.
The unique structure of each coil performs magnetic stimulation of deeper brain tissues with a goal outcome to generate a powerful impact on the mood regulation system.
The treatment is designed to rebalance abnormal deep brain structures at the neurochemical level to cause substantial improvement in depressive symptoms.
BrainsWay TMS has been supported in various double-blind studies to improve depressive symptoms.
A typical TMS treatment schedule:
- Daily sessions 5 days per week
- Sessions last 30-40 minutes
- A treatment period of 4-6 weeks
Many patients start to experience symptom relief after three weeks.
Patients with stress-related symptoms may qualify:
- Memory loss
- Chronic stress
- Depressed mood
- Brain Fog
- Attention problems
- Cognitive Impairment
