Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
About TMS & BrainsWay
Brainsway offers a new cutting edge solution for treatment-resistant clients.Transcranial magnetic stimulation or TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses a magnetic field to stimulate nerve cells in particular areas of the brain to improve symptoms of depression, OCD and other mental health and neurological conditions. TMS is typically used when other depression and OCD treatments haven’t been effective. Clinical data demonstrates that 3 out 4 clients with depression respond to deep TMS and 1 in 2 clients achieve full remission.
Brainsway is a TGA-approved treatment for depression and the only TGA-approved treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) available in Australia. This treatment is backed by clinically proven efficacy.
Our TMS technicians are trained and experienced in administering your treatment and managing your care. Your initial assessment and the determination of your treatment needs will be conducted by Dr Lisa Myers, an experienced psychiatrist, accredited to perform TMS. Dr Myers completed a fellowship in ECT and neurostimulation at Columbia University in New York.

why choose deep TMS over regular TMS
Standard TMS uses a figure-8 coil, while Deep TMS uses a patented H-coil held inside a padded helmet. While the magnetic pulses activated by standard TMS only reach a depth of 0.27” (0.7cm) within the brain, Deep TMS technology manages to reach a significantly deeper level of 1.25’’ (3.2cm), making it more effective at reaching the implicated brain regions.
