How it all began – An Idea for Optimal Health

Our team was assembled by Harvard trained TMS Specialist Dr. Claudia Eppele, MD. Together with an affiliation of like-minded professionals, TMS Health and Wellness has rapidly grown to become the premier center for TMS Therapy in Southern California. With an over 90% success rate in reduction of symptoms, we offer the highest quality of service for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder at our Los Alamitos and Newport Beach locations.

Here at TMS Health and Wellness we treat the “whole person” recognizing that we are more than just the condition that ails us. Our unique approach to wellness enhances standard care by augmenting TMS therapy with various inner resource tools and natural remedies, such as meditation, mindful self-compassion, homeopathy and aromatherapy to name a few. This supports our goal of offering non-drug alternatives that work.

From the moment you are greeted by our team of professionals, throughout treatment and with any other care required, you will feel that your health is central to our mission. We invite you, your family members or those who care for you to be a part of the entire experience.

Welcome to TMS Wellness Group.
