How is Insomnia Treated with MeRT?
MeRT is a well-tolerated and highly effective approach to symptom relief for those with insomnia. MeRT combines rTMS, an FDA-cleared treatment, with qEEG and EKG recordings to tailor treatments to each individual’s unique brain pattern.
The quality of communication between your neurons can be disrupted by many things, including sleep disorders. These disruptions can be minor or significant.
Through the measurement and analysis of your brainwave activity, MeRT identifies disruptions to your brain network and builds treatment parameters specifically tailored to your needs. In most cases we can visibly reshape brainwave activity, regardless of what may have caused the disruption to begin with.
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.
