TMS Clinics of Canada Opens New Facility To Offer Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) for Patients With Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
VAUGHAN, Ontario, Sept. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TMS Clinics of Canada, a mental health clinic providing advanced treatments for major depressive disorder (MDD), announced today that it is officially opening its doors and offering BrainsWay’s Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS). The opening of the clinic comes at a time where Canadians are experiencing increased levels of depression due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as concern around a projected increase in suicide rates among Canadians.
“We elected to make our announcement on World Suicide Prevention Day as a way to remind those living with a mental illness during these unprecedented times that there is hope,” said Dr. Leon Steiner, psychologist at TMS Clinics of Canada. “We have seen the success of Deep TMS across the United States and overseas and wanted to bring the same opportunity to patients in the Greater Toronto Area.”TMS Clinics of Canada is the first facility in the country to provide the TMS Plus System-Advanced Depression Treatment & Relapse Prevention. This evidence-based system combines Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with potent and efficient components of Behavioural Activation Therapy and Positive Psychology to help clients overcome their mental distress and prevent relapse.BrainsWay’s Deep TMS device non-invasively administers magnetic waves through a cushioned helmet to target deep structures of the brain that impact depression symptoms. The treatment offers a medication-free solution, and patients can return to normal activities, such as driving, immediately following the 20-minute session. Because Deep TMS penetrates deeper and broader in the brain than traditional TMS, there is evidence that response rates are higher than traditional TMS.TMS Clinics of Canada is open on Sunday through Friday and is located at 7250 Keele St, Vaughan, ON L4K 1Z8.
