Unlocking Mental Health: The Proven Efficacy of Deep TMS Therapy
At Cora Health Solutions, we are dedicated to offering the most advanced and effective treatments for mental health conditions.

One such groundbreaking therapy is Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS™). Backed by extensive clinical research, Deep TMS has shown remarkable success in treating Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Let's explore the evidence supporting this innovative treatment and how it can transform lives.

What is Deep TMS?

Deep TMS is a non-invasive brain stimulation therapy that uses magnetic fields to target specific areas of the brain associated with mental health conditions. Unlike traditional treatments, Deep TMS offers a new hope for those who have not found relief with standard medications or psychotherapy.

Clinical Evidence for Deep TMS

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Groundbreaking Study (2015)

A pivotal study published in World Psychiatry in 2015 accumulated data from 20 prestigious academic mental health centers. This study examined the effects of Deep TMS on treatment-resistant MDD patients. The results were astounding:

  • Approximately one in three participants achieved remission after just four weeks of Deep TMS treatment.
  • Over 80% experienced significant improvement during the continuation phase.

These findings were instrumental in BrainsWay receiving FDA clearance for Deep TMS as a treatment for MDD.

Real-Life Clinical Settings

Data from over 1,300 patients treated in real-life clinical settings further supports the efficacy of Deep TMS:

  • About 80% of patients achieved a response after completing at least 30 Deep TMS sessions.
  • Two-thirds of these patients reached remission, demonstrating the therapy's effectiveness outside of controlled clinical trials.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Significant Study (2019)

In a study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry in 2019, researchers explored the impact of a six-week course of Deep TMS on OCD symptoms. The results were compelling:

  • Participants showed significant clinical improvement, comparable to a 12-week pharmacotherapy course.
  • More than one in three patients experienced a substantial reduction in OCD symptoms, even those previously unresponsive to medication or psychotherapy.

Clinical Usage Data

Real-world data from over 200 OCD patients further validates these findings:

  • More than 50% of patients achieved a 30+% reduction in symptoms after 29 Deep TMS sessions, as measured by the Y-BOCS scale.

Combining Deep TMS with Other Therapies

Deep TMS can be safely combined with antidepressant medications or psychotherapy, enhancing the overall treatment effects. A 2019 study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research found that Deep TMS, when combined with standard medication for MDD, was significantly more effective than medication alone. Nearly two-thirds of participants experienced a reduction in MDD symptoms, highlighting Deep TMS's ability to boost the efficacy of existing treatments.
