    I recently came upon an Internet article about Brainsway TMS and thought at first it meant
    the TMS we discuss in the TMSWiki -- Dr. Saro's TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome).
    Brainsway TMS is also MindBody healing, but through a different technique than we use.
    I haven't tried it, nor do I itend to. I think it is unnecessary if one follows the TMS of Dr. Sarno and this web site.

    This is the article on the Internet:

    Brainsway TMS

    Brainsway has launched a new era in depression treatment, with Brainsway Deep TMS or Deep Magnetic Transcranial Stimulation. With this advanced depression treatment, patients can regain stability, calm and happiness in just a few weeks.

    Brainsway's depression treatment is effective*, safe and generally well-tolerated* for treatment of patients with severe, persistent depression. It is FDA cleared* for patients who tried several types of antidepressants without improving. Our Deep TMS depression treatment is non-invasive, does not generate systemic side effects*, and does not require hospitalization or anesthesia.

    Brainsway Deep TMS depression treatment stimulates the brain regions responsible for depression in a non-invasive way, using brief magnetic fields, at an amplitude similar to that used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems.

    Brainsway Deep Magnetic Transcranial Stimulation's depression treatment has been widely tested, participating in over 60 clinical trials worldwide. It is based on patents registered by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the company.

    funny enough this is how I stumbled across TMS in the first place. I watched a BBC Horizon documentary on Pain and a Dr Turo Nurmikko is using targeted magnetic stimulation with great results. I even tried to get onto one of his studies and thought about trying to build my own brain zapper! thankfully I didn't/

    ''TMS chronic pain'' was the google term I used and look where its lead me!

    Off hand it sounds a little like a milder form of electro-shock therapy, which was Hollyweird sensationalized to look like you were being electrocuted or getting a bad perm. It's starting to get back into favor again I hear. Dr. Sarno says surgery is our best placebo, maybe sticking your finger in a light socket will liven up your life enough to distract you from your TMS affective depression distraction--don't know if a USB port will have enough juice though. I really don't know a thing about this "TMS", I came across it once myself in a search, many acronyms look alike, my apologies to Dr. Turo N., since I don't know a thing about his TMS, what ever works.

    There are cases where someone has had actual nerve injury/damage that Im not sure would apply to the Sarno approach. one lady featured had a stroke and was left with a clenched arm/hand. Using the TMS zapper they targeted the Neocortex precisely and it resest the muscle clenching. Hopefully its on youtube. It was really moving to see someone get relief from pain after so long, she began to tear up.
    Electroshock therapy is remarkably effective for the most intractable cases of depression. the meds only help a minority of people.

    My father in law had seizure a few years back. It snapped him out of the darkest places of his life long depression. Doctor said he had seen this before, sort of like a reset for the brain. Granted, my FIL is anything but a happy dude but the edge to his orneriness is less.

    Interesting replies to Brainsway TMS. Electro shock therapy did a lot of damage years ago.
    Maybe it or similar treatment is better today. A friend's wife recovered from deep depression
    and other mental illness through psychotherapy.
