TMS Health Solutions provides comprehensive psychiatric services and is Northern California’s leading provider of TMS therapy, a highly effective, FDA-cleared treatment for those who do not respond to treatment and/or medication. TMS uses non-invasive, utilizing magnetic pulses to precisely stimulate areas of the brain known to cause depression and mood disorders, without the systemic side effects of anti-depressant medication. TMS sessions are administered in a comfortable outpatient setting, and patients can resume normal activity immediately afterward.
“Many of our referring providers and patients live around Roseville and will now be able to access quality psychiatric care, including TMS therapy, right where they live and work,” said Brad Hummel, CEO of TMS Health Partners, the business management company for TMS Health Solutions. “With our clinics in west Sacramento and El Dorado Hills, we now provide comprehensive psychiatric services across the region.”

About TMS Therapy
Cleared by the FDA in 2008, TMS is a drug-free, non-invasive therapy for patients who suffer from treatment-resistant depression. It is administered in a physician’s office in an outpatient setting. By using an MRI-strength magnetic field to stimulate the prefrontal cortex of the brain, the core symptoms of major depression can be relieved. Unlike antidepressants or Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT), patients undergoing TMS therapy experience minimal side effects.
