Why choose Deep TMS?

Proven Effective

Deep TMS effectively relieves depression in 70% of people with 1 in 3 experiencing full remission of depressive symptoms

Minimal Side Effects

Fast Appointments

Deep TMS treatment consists of 36 sessions that are only 20 minutes long. Other TMS technologies require 45–90 minute sessions

What is deep TMS?

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 can serve to alleviate depression symptoms.

Deep TMS technology was created by BrainsWay. While the bulky machine is not a pretty device, it has proven to be an effective one. A specially designed H-Coil is housed in a helmet-like device that fits on the head. The technology uses magnetic waves generated by the coil to rejuvenate the brain in a targeted way.

Since deep TMS is FDA-approved, most insurance plans will cover thirty-six treatments over the course of nine weeks. PrimePsych is happy to help work with your insurance company to check your coverage.

Based on patents from the National Institute of Health, deep TMS has undergone more than sixty double-blind clinical trials. In addition, it is 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 in the treatment of depression and other mood disorders.

What happens during treatment?

PrimePsych takes every effort to ensure your comfort while you receive deep TMS treatments. Treatment consists of fitting a bulky helmet on your head and allowing the machine to work by transmitting magnetic waves into a targeted portion of your brain. The sensation will feel like a light tapping. While it may feel a bit strange, it won’t hurt!

Antidepressants typically aim to stimulate neuron growth and function. Unfortunately, these treatments often come with significant side effects. However, deep TMS alleviates depression symptoms without the significant side effects.
