MeRT TBI & Concussion 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 tailored 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 breakthrough 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 traumatic brain injury (TBI) or concussion, 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 are TBI & Concussion Treated with MeRT?
MeRT is a well-tolerated and highly effective treatment for traumatic brain injury (TBI) and concussion. MeRT combines rTMS, an FDA-cleared treatment, with qEEG and EKG recordings to individualize treatments to each unique brain pattern.
Concussion and repeated hits to the head can affect brain performance. MeRT identifies brain areas affected and targets those areas with an individualized treatment protocol. With MeRT, we can optimize brain performance so you can be at your best at home, at work or school, and on the field.
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.

TBI can have many causes, including motor-vehicle crashes, falls, sports and assaults. In the United States, someone sustains a brain injury every nine seconds. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the leading causes of TBI are:
- Falls (28%)
- Motor vehicle crashes (20%)
- Being hit by or colliding with an object (19%)
- Assaults (11%)
- Other (12%)
Many consequences can occur after a brain injury, ranging from mild to severe. Consequences can be physical, such as altered smell or vision, headaches, hearing loss, seizures and vertigo. Consequences may also include problems with cognitive skills such as memory, judgment, decision making, verbal communication, and writing. Brain injuries are traumatic, and patients may report behavioral and emotional changes such as outbursts or depression.

Signs & Symptoms of TBI & Concussion
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) results from an impact to the head that disrupts normal brain function. TBI can have wide-ranging physical and psychological effects. Some signs and symptoms may appear immediately after the event, while some may appear days or weeks later.
- Loss of consciousness or a state of being dazed, disoriented or confused
- Nausea or vomiting
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Sleeping more than usual
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Sensory problems like blurred vision or ringing in the ears
