TMS Health Solutions have found hope for people with mental illness. The company works with people who have depression, OCD, memory issues, and anxiety. 17% of people will suffer an episode of clinical depression and the effects can be devastating. 40% of people who seek help for depression cannot find relief from traditional medication or talk therapy. They have treatment resistant depression. Having depression is debilitating enough, but to not find a solution through medication can be traumatic. Clinical depression will not normally go away untreated, and so TMS Health Solutions offers a variety of treatments.
TMS Health Solutions uses a treatment known as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). While it does target the brain, it is not the same as electroconvulsive therapy. It is a non-invasive method of stimulating the neurotransmitters in the brain. It has been shown that there is less brain activity in patients suffering from depression. TMS stimulates the nerve cells that regulate mood. The treatment has no negative effects, and it can be carried out in the doctor’s office. Patients are fully awake during the procedure, and they can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
TMS Health Solutions has a highly trained and certified team of psychiatrists who can conduct the process in 30-60 minute sessions that can last 4-6 weeks. A magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head, and while there may be a light sensation on the scalp where the magnetic coil touches the skin, there is no effect on sleep or memory. The staff at TMS Health Solutions can find a combination of medication, therapy, and transcranial magnetic stimulation to help each individual patient.
TMS Health Solutions has recently opened a second San Francisco office which brings the total amount of locations to four. They have offices around the Bay Area.
