What is TMS?
TMS THERAPY OVERVIEW
TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION (TMS) IS A CUTTING EDGE THERAPY FOR DEPRESSION THAT USES MAGNETIC FIELDS TO STIMULATE THE BRAIN’S NERVE CELLS.
This noninvasive procedure has been shown to improve symptoms of depression even when medications have failed. During a session, the helmet containing the electromagnetic coil is placed on your head. It sends a magnetic pulse that stimulates the region of your brain involved in mood regulation. This treatment involves several repetitive sessions, with most patients seeing dramatic improvement after four weeks.

NON-INVASIVE, HEALTH CANADA APPROVED TREATMENT FOR DEPRESSION
TMS Therapy is a non-invasive treatment, with no systemic side effects. It was approved for clinical use in the United States in 2008 and Health Canada approved it for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder in 2013. Our device, manufactured by Brainsway® Deep TMS technology, has been tested in over 60 clinical studies worldwide. TMS does not have the disturbing side effects of antidepressant drugs.
OFTEN COMPLETE REMISSION OF DEPRESSIVE SYMPTOMS
Deep TMS Therapy is very effective at treating depression, even when antidepressants fail. Studies have found that 80% of patients with depression experience significant improvement and 50% go into complete remission of their depressive symptoms. Deep TMS also has durability and patient’s remission can be sustained over long periods of time.
FOR EVEN THE MOST TREATMENT-RESISTANT DEPRESSION CASES
TMS is a very promising, Health Canada and FDA – approved treatment that has been shown to produce solid results even for patients with treatment-resistant depression. Unlike other antidepressant alternatives, TMS therapy does not require hospitalization or anesthesia, entails no memory loss and does not require medication.
