MeRT ADHD Treatment
Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT) is a safe and effective treatment that combines technologies of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS, an FDA cleared therapy), quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG), and electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) to deliver treatments scientifically designed for each individual’s unique brain pattern. MeRT can be used alone, or in conjunction with other treatment modalities including therapy and medication.
Neuro Wellness Spa is a leader in personalized brain health and neuromodulation. Using innovative MeRT therapy, our clinicians deliver personalized treatments for a wide variety of brain related disorders and to optimize cognitive performance. MeRT therapy is available at our Manhattan Beach clinic.

What is MeRT Therapy?
MeRT is non-invasive and well-tolerated.
Our devices are safe and cleared by the FDA.
MeRT is a drug-free approach that uses magnetic pulses to retrain the brain.
About 6.1 million children in the United States (9.4 percent) between ages 2 to 17 are estimated to have ever been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
- Boys are almost three times more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than girls.
- During their lifetimes, 13% of men will be diagnosed with ADHD. Just 4.2 percent of women will be diagnosed.
- The average age of ADHD diagnosis is 7 years old.
- Symptoms of ADHD typically first appear between the ages of 3 and 6.
- ADHD isn’t just a childhood disorder. About 4% of American adults over the age of 18 deal with ADHD on a daily basis.

Signs and Symptoms of ADHD
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can cause above-normal levels of hyperactive and impulsive behaviors. People with ADHD may also have trouble focusing their attention on a single task or sitting still for long periods of time. Both adults and children can have ADHD.
A wide range of behaviors are associated with ADHD. Some of the more common ones include:
- having trouble focusing or concentrating on tasks
- being forgetful about completing tasks
- being easily distracted
- having difficulty sitting still
- interrupting people while they’re talking
How is ADHD Treated with MeRT?
MeRT is a well-tolerated and highly effective approach to symptom relief for those with ADHD. MeRT combines rTMS, an FDA-cleared treatment, with qEEG and EKG recordings to individualize treatments to each unique brain pattern.
Individuals with ADHD experience a wide range of different presentations and degrees of severity around attention and hyperactivity which can interfere with learning and social relationships.
MeRT begins by mapping your brain activity and identifying areas that may not be communicating effectively. With personalized protocols, MeRT identifies and nurtures specific areas of the brain to improve synchronicity and strengthen functionality. By synchronizing the brain or neural activity communication, individuals with ADHD can experience improvement in attention and concentration, learning, reduced impulsivity and overall better quality of life.
During MeRT cortical treatment, patients recline in a treatment chair and can relax, read or watch television. A TMS magnet is positioned over the patient’s head to deliver a tailored protocol of gentle pulses to specific areas of the brain. Patients report that the pulses feel like taps on the head. Each treatment session lasts about 30 minutes, after which patients can immediately return back to their daily routines including work and school.
Overall, patients tolerate MeRT treatment very well. The most commonly reported side effect is mild scalp discomfort or mild headache during stimulation, which responds well to over-the-counter analgesics.
