*Deep TMS works by administering magnetic pulses through an H-coil on the scalp that is targeted to the mood center of the brain. The magnetic fields induce electrical currents that stimulate underactive neurons, helping to reset brain chemistry, resulting in improved sleep, concentration and overall mood. It is safe, non-invasive and highly effective for those who are treatment resistant and/or have experienced little or no relief from medication.
In more than 60 clinical studies globally, dTMS has consistently demonstrated statistically significant response and remission rates. The therapy is well tolerated by patients, causing no adverse effects. Treatment sessions are prescribed five days per week for six weeks, with each session lasting 20 minutes. There is no sedation involved, no significant side effects and nodown time. Achieve TMS has successfully treated more than 650 patients to date.
