MeRT Therapy in Southern California

Neuro Wellness Spa is a leader in personalized brain health and neuromodulation.  Using state of the art MeRT therapy, our clinicians deliver personalized treatments for a wide variety of brain related disorders and for optimizing cognitive performance. By combining sequential electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings, electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), MeRT analyzes brainwave data to deliver scientifically-driven treatments to each individual’s unique brain pattern for the best outcomes possible.

What is MeRT?

MeRT stands for Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy. MeRT therapy is a treatment that combines the technologies of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS, an FDA cleared therapy), qEEG and EKG to deliver treatments tailored for each individual’s unique brain pattern.

By measuring and analyzing your brainwave activity, MeRT assesses the communication quality between the neurons in your brain and custom designs treatment protocols to optimize brain function. Using neuroscience and machine learning, MeRT visibly reshapes brainwave activity and strengthens functionality to improve health outcomes.

How Does MeRT Work?

There are four simple stages in the MeRT process that result in treatments scientifically designed for each individual’s unique brain function:

Step 1: Record EEG

The MeRT treatment process begins with a resting-state electroencephalogram (EEG), electrocardiogram (EKG) to measure brain wave frequencies, heart rate and brain-heart coherence.

Step 2: EEG Analysis and Review

Using a patented approach, we develop a customized TMS protocol that optimizes brain synchrony.

Step 3: Treatment

A TMS coil delivers magnetic pulses specifically targeted and individualized for each patient.

Step 4: Progress Evaluation

Every 10 treatments,  sequential EEG recordings document progress and guide scientifically informed treatment. A typical course involves patients coming Monday through Friday. Length of treatment course varies by the individual’s needs.

Non-Invasive

MeRT is non-invasive and well-tolerated.

FDA-Cleared

Our devices are safe and cleared by the FDA.

Drug-Free

MeRT is a drug-free approach that uses magnetic pulses to retrain the brain.

Additional Information on MeRT Therapy

  • Why Choose MeRT Therapy?

    Functional improvement and recovery are the primary objectives of MeRT treatment. Common benefits of MeRT include better sleep, increased sleep duration, reduction of stress, reduction of pain, increased concentration and focus, improved mood, increased attention span, increased sociability, increased motivation, improved clarity of thought, decreased cravings, increased emotional stability, improved self-confidence and self-esteem.

  • How is MeRT therapy different from rTMS?

    Unlike standard rTMS therapy, the MeRT℠ approach individualizes the treatment frequency and location based on each patient’s Quantitative EEG and EKG. The resulting information is used to develop a personalized protocol for each patient, aimed at encouraging healthy brain communication. This can lead to significant clinical improvements.

  • What takes place during a typical MeRT session?

    A typical MeRT treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes. MeRT is an outpatient procedure after which patients may immediately return back to their daily life, including work and school.

  • What are the side effects of MeRT therapy?

    Overall, patients tolerate MeRT treatment very well. The most commonly reported side effect is a mild headache at the site of stimulation, which responds well to over-the-counter analgesics.
