MeRT Stroke Rehabilitation 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 individualized treatments for each 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 state of the art MeRT technology, 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. To learn more about MeRT therapy for post-stroke rehabilitation, contact us today at 1-877-847-3984 or use our contact form.
What is MeRT Therapy?
MeRT is pain-free, 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 Post-Stroke Rehabilitation Achieved with MeRT?
MeRT is a well-tolerated and highly effective treatment for post-stroke. 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 a stroke. 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 scientifically designed for your needs. In most cases MeRT can visibly reshape brainwave activity, regardless of what may have caused the disruption to begin with.
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.

There are two types of stroke: ischemic and hemorrhagic. In an ischemic stroke a blood vessel becomes blocked, usually by a blood clot, and a portion of the brain becomes deprived of oxygen. Ischemic strokes are the most common type of stroke, representing about 87% of all strokes.
A hemorrhagic stroke can occur when an aneurysm ruptures, flooding the surrounding tissue with blood.
- On average, someone in the US has a stroke every 40 seconds
- On average, someone has a stroke in the US every 40 seconds.
- When considered separately from other cardiovascular diseases, stroke ranks number 5 among all causes of death in the US.
- Stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability in the US. Approximately 3% of males and 2% of females reported that they were disabled because of stroke.
- The disability that a person with stroke experiences and the rehabilitation that is needed depends on the size of the brain injury and the particular brain circuits that are damaged.
- Stroke can damage the parts of the brain responsible for memory, learning, and awareness. A stroke survivor may have a dramatically shortened attention span or may experience deficits in short-term memory.
- At least one-fourth of all stroke survivors experience language impairments, involving the ability to speak, write, and understand spoken and written language.
- Several sensory disturbances can develop following a stroke, including losing the ability to feel touch, pain, temperature, or sense how the body is positioned.
- Damage to cells and connections in the brain following a stroke can cause various problems with movement and sensation, including paralysis, loss of voluntary movement or weakness.
