We live in a world that places many stressors into our lives. Chronic stressors are events that we have to deal with each day such as making ends meet or dealing with difficult people at work or in other social situations. Other more acute stressors can come into our lives such as a divorce, the death of close family member or a major illness.
In addition to these type of stressful events, research has demonstrated that environmental factors such as were one lives and the amount of industrial activity in an area can lead to elevated levels of stress and a propensity to mental illness. Socio-economic factors such as income inequality can also affect mental health.
With all of these stressors in life, more and more people are developing mental health issues such as clinical depression. When workers are depressed, it lowers their overall productivity. Companies are relying on innovative therapy from practitioners like those at TMS Health Solutions to help their workers be better at work and at home with their families.
TMS Health Solutions was founded in San Francisco in 2007 by Dr. Richard Bermudes. His goal was to develop a group of private-practice, psychiatric physicians who were committed to providing the best solutions to help their patients suffering from various mental health problems.
TMS uses a variety of different treatment methods to help their patients. Each patient is focused upon as an individual. There are no cookie-cutter approaches. Some patients will be benefited by a course of medication while others will be benefited from regular counseling sessions.
Those who suffer from clinical depression are sometimes difficult to treat with conventional therapies. For this reason, TMS Health Solutions offer TMS Therapy. TMS Therapy is an innovative therapy that is designed for those patients who have not benefited from medication.
TMS stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation. This treatment consists of electromagnetic impulses being delivered to the prefrontal cortex of the patient’s brain. This helps to stimulate the nerves in the brain that are associated with a patient’s mood.
TMS Therapy is used daily for a period of between four to eight weeks. This depends on how well the individual patient is responding to this type of treatment. Each treatment last from between 30 to 60 minutes.
TMS has the added benefit of causing very few side effects. Most patients are able to proceed with all of their daily activities when their TMS session is complete.
Clinical depression is a major problem for communities, individuals and for businesses. TMS Health Solutions is offering an innovative therapy to help people live happier, healthier and more productive lives.
