Deep TMS Therapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Struggling with treatment resistant depression or OCD? There's a new option.

TMS therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment option for those with depression or OCD that has been resistant to medication. It works by delivering a magnetic pulse to a specific region of your brain that regulates your moods, particularly stimulating under-active neurons. 

Unlike traditional TMS systems that focus mainly on treating Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), BrainsWay Deep TMS is the only TMS device with peer-reviewed clinical data demonstrating efficacy for MDDAnxious Depression, and OCD.

Our Deep TMS partner Brainsway is currently the only TMS provider that is approved by the FDA. Professional Psychiatric Services is proud of be one of only two Deep TMS providers in Cincinnati!

How Deep TMS Works

Brainsway's Deep TMS therapy can be done with minimal disruptions to your day-to-day life!

 

Although every individual's treatment length may vary, generally the therapy consists of 20 sessions across a 4 week period, 

followed by periodic maintenance sessions. Each session typically lasts 20 minutes.

 

There is no need for sedation, as the magnetic pulses are not painful and patients can sit comfortably, awake and alert during the treatment.

Medication used with Deep TMS proves significantly higher remission rates compared to medication alone
