Frequently Asked Questions

Here you’ll find answers to the most common questions about our services and policies. If you need further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What is Deep TMS?

Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. It is designed to treat depression and other mental health conditions by targeting specific areas of the brain.

How does Deep TMS work?

Deep TMS uses BrainsWay’s advanced technology to deliver magnetic pulses through a specialized helmet. These pulses penetrate deeper into the brain than traditional TMS, stimulating brain regions associated with mood regulation.

What conditions can Deep TMS treat?

Deep TMS is primarily used to treat Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and has been FDA-cleared for this purpose. It is also effective for treating other conditions like Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and ongoing research is exploring its benefits for other mental health issues.

Is Deep TMS safe?

Yes, Deep TMS is a safe and well-tolerated treatment. It has been FDA-cleared and extensively studied in clinical trials. Most patients experience minimal side effects, which are usually mild and transient, such as scalp discomfort or headaches.

How long is each Deep TMS session?

Each Deep TMS session typically lasts about 20 minutes and you can bring your own headphones to listen to music or an audiobook during the session. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the session, as there is no downtime required.

How many sessions will I need?

The standard course of Deep TMS treatment usually consists of daily sessions, 3-5 days per week with a recommendation of 5 initially for best results, for about 6-9 weeks. However, the exact number of sessions may vary depending on individual needs and the specific condition being treated.

When will I start to see results?

Many patients begin to notice improvements in their symptoms within the first few weeks of treatment. However, it may take several weeks to experience the full benefits of Deep TMS.

Do I need to stop my current medications for Deep TMS?

No, you do not need to stop taking your current medications to undergo Deep TMS treatment. However, it is important to inform your treatment provider about all medications you are taking, as adjustments may be necessary.

Can Deep TMS be used with other forms of therapy?

Yes, Deep TMS can be used alongside other forms of therapy, such as medication and psychotherapy. Combining treatments may enhance overall outcomes and provide a more comprehensive approach to managing mental health conditions.

What makes Deep TMS different from traditional TMS?

Deep TMS differs from traditional TMS in its ability to penetrate deeper into the brain, allowing for more targeted stimulation of specific brain regions. This can result in improved efficacy and better treatment outcomes for certain conditions.

Is Deep TMS covered by insurance?

Katie’s Way Plus accepts Tri-Care, Tri-West and VA.

How can I schedule a Deep TMS consultation at Katie's Way Plus?

To schedule a Deep TMS consultation at Katie’s Way Plus, you can contact our office directly by phone or through our website. Our team will be happy to answer any questions and help you determine if Deep TMS is the right treatment option for you.

What should I expect during my first visit?

During your first visit, you will have an initial consultation with one of our providers to discuss your medical history, current symptoms, and treatment goals. If Deep TMS is deemed appropriate, a personalized treatment plan will be developed for you.  Your initial onboarding may last up to 90 minutes.

Who should not receive Deep TMS treatment?

Deep TMS is not suitable for everyone. It is not recommended for individuals with a history of seizures, certain neurological conditions, or metal implants in or around the head. A thorough evaluation by a qualified provider is necessary to determine eligibility.
