Unlike medications, which affect the entire body as they pass through the blood-brain barrier, TMS therapy targets depression at the source.
For those diagnosed with depression, specific areas of the brain are known to be underactive. Stimulating these areas can improve the brain’s ability to regulate mood.

BrainsWay deep TMS is approved for patients aged 18 or older who have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD).
In real-life clinical settings*, the treatment was proven to be effective for 3 out of 4 patients, with a 51% remission rate and 75% response rate and has been used to help PTSD as well.
Studies have shown the treatment to be effective for patients with depression, no matter how many other medications were tried in the current depressive episode.
BrainsWay is a non-invasive procedure, which eliminates the need for hospitalization. Patients may experience minor side effects such as headaches or minor pain at the site of the treatment. However, this is usually brief and ceases after the first few sessions.

The treatment integrates seamlessly into your routine. During each session, you are comfortably seated on a chair and a cushioned helmet is placed over your head. The helmet uses magnetic fields to stimulate the targeted brain area and improve depressive symptoms. The procedure requires daily sessions of 20 minutes for 4-6 weeks. As the treatment does not require hospitalization or anesthesia, and entails no memory loss and no systemic side effects, you can return to your normal routine after each session.
