TMS Health Solutions Offers Hope to Their Patients

TMS Health Solutions has found a very effective way to treat Treatment-Resistant Depression. TMS therapy, also known as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation has been shown to help many patients who have been unresponsive to the more traditional methods of treating depression such as antidepressants. This type of therapy involves sending electromagnetic pulses to the brain in order to stimulate the nerves. It is a non-surgical type of therapy that requires no surgery. It also does not have the side effects that many anti-depressants have such as weight gain, sexual issues, or sedation.

Depression can be difficult to pinpoint in some people, but the basic signs of depression include, but are not limited to, feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, and worthlessness. A person suffering from depression may also feel like the world would be better off if they were dead. Speaking or moving slowly or feeling restless may also be an indication that depression is present.

TMS therapy is an innovative therapy that can be effective on its own, or it may be combined with medication in order to treat a patient. Every patient is different, has different circumstances, and may require a more complicated treatment plan. The clinicians at TMS Health Solutions are dedicated to tailoring the best plan for each and every one of their patients.

Clinical depression will affect 6.7 of the population at least once their year and 154 percent in their lifetime, according to the CDC. Clinical depression is unlikely to resolve itself and will require at least some form of treatment. 40 percent of patients suffering from clinical depression will have a treatment-resistant form of depression. TMS Health Solutions offers hope when all hope seems lost.

TMS Health Solutions will help their patients through the entire process of treatment. They are involved not only with their patients but with the family, caregivers, and therapists of their patients in order to best provide treatment that will be effective. Sometimes TMS treatment also is not effective, but a combination of TMS therapy and medication will be needed. Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs.

TMS Health Solutions was founded by Dr. Richard Bermudes in 2007 and has since been providing care to patients. The company has taken the butterfly as its logo because the buttery represents the great transformation that their patients go through to get the “normal” lives that they desire.

Contactless Payments

Employees enjoy the fact that their payroll checks are directly deposited into an ATM card. It gives them the advantage of getting their payment early and not waiting for checks to be approved from a bank. The ATM card allows them to take needed cash out when they want to or make purchases wherever the MasterCard is accepted.

It gives those employees without a bank account a perfect and secure solution for getting their salary. It also saves time with just one transfer. It is cost effective for the company, no issuing of paper checks and reduces the staff cost when managing payroll. Using an ATM card is much safer than using cash payment and it is easy to replace cards that get lost or damaged.

Payment Accounts Online

Online payments are secure, transparent and easy to make. Business customers know that they have complete control over their company’s expenditures. With PSI-Pay’s technology businesses and consumers know that their personal information is secure online.

The Way it Works

A PSI-Pay Virtual Account is set up by businesses for their customers. The advantage to account customers is that they can then transfer funds, make instant deposits and withdraws, or make online purchases from merchants who also have Virtual Accounts.

The Virtual Account System that was developed by PSI-Pay, allows the expenditures of the finance department to keep control on the spending for the business. The business has a main corporate account through PSI-Pay, which has sub accounts. These sub accounts have the flexibility of keeping the balance for each account. Every account has to keep a positive balance so it cannot be overdrawn. This system reduces risk, cost and gives the business flexible management.
