Mental health illness touches millions of people and it can be incredibly hard for those suffering to find the right help. TMS Health Solutions knows that people with mental conditions can feel truly lost and overwhelmed. For some people they have tried many medications and counseling services that haven’t improved their condition. It is for those patients that the staff at TMS works so hard for. TMS Health Solutions can help people overcome their symptoms of depression without the side effects of antidepressants.
TMS Health Solutions uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy to treat their patients that are suffering from treatment-resistant depression. TMS therapy can be used in conjunction with medication or counseling to ease the depression and the staff at TMS Health Solutions will make a determination on a case by case basis. The TMS procedure is an easy, non-invasive, procedure that is performed in an office atmosphere.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is used to stimulate the prefrontal cortex, which is the part of the brain responsible for our moods, using a TMS coil. The patient doesn’t require any sedatives and doesn’t experience any pain. Patients recline comfortably in a treatment room for between 30-60 minutes. The course of treatment usually takes six weeks, but again the staff at TMS Health Solutions will work with each patient to decide their course of treatment.
TMS Health Solutions uses a butterfly logo to show that their patients may come in feeling like the caterpillar, they will eventually change and soar like the butterfly. It really is a part of the idea that Dr. Richard Bermudes thought of when starting TMS Health Solutions in 2007. His vision to open a place that would use the latest therapies for people with mental health issues. He saw that this place would offer metamorphosis to those living with mental health issues.
