TMS Health Solutions is a business that helps people with clinical depression and other mental disorders. They are headquartered in Sacramento, California, and has offices there and in the Bay Area. Many of their patients have what is called Treatment-Resistant Depression where they don’t respond positively to conventional therapy and drugs. The company’s name refers to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) which was designed to help these people with their clinical depression.
The federal government’s Centers for Disease Control says that about 14% to 17% of the American adult population will experience clinical depression at least once in their lives. About 40% of these people have to seek alternative treatment because conventional means don’t work. TMS has been approved by the FDA to be used on these patients as it is safe as well as effective. This procedure is not invasive. It sends electromagnetic pulses into the patient’s brain, targeting a specific area. Most patients go through these treatments for 1 to 2 months. The treatment plan consists of daily sessions each lasting 30 to 60 minutes.
The TMS Therapy Burlingame office is located in San Francisco near the University of California, San Francisco. This office was opened a number of years ago and has four clinicians on its staff to treat patients. The TMS Health Solutions Burlingame office can be accessed by car, public transportation, and from the UCSF campus via a free shuttle.
In addition to the Burlingame office and Sacramento, TMS Health Solutions also has office locations in Burlingame, Oakland, El Dorado Hills, Roseville, and a second San Francisco office located on Post Street. Additional offices are planned for more of the Bay Area in coming years.
On their Facebook page, the team at this company post many articles and videos. They are meant to inform people who go to their website about mental disorders like clinical depression as well as what this company is all about. They have one video, for instance, called “Introduction to TMS Health Solutions”. It shows how the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is performed so that patients can be relaxed about the procedure. The video is just 48 seconds long but it is very informative in even that brief time about this procedure. The Facebook page is also used to announce new staff additions at this company as well as news about new locations that are being opened.
