MeRT Anxiety 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.

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.
How is Anxiety Treated with MeRT?
MeRT is a well-tolerated and highly effective approach to symptom relief for those with anxiety. MeRT combines rTMS, an FDA-cleared treatment, with qEEG and EKG recordings to individualize treatments to each unique brain pattern.
Individuals with clinical anxiety tend to demonstrate a q-EEG with high beta activity and disruptive alpha activity.
During MeRT treatment, patients recline in a treatment chair. A TMS magnet is positioned over the patient’s head to deliver an individualized 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 40 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 effects are mild scalp discomfort and mild headache during stimulation, which responds well to over-the-counter analgesics.
