A Customized & Targeted Approach
Therapy begins by identifying where each individual’s brain is having difficulty communicating. These areas are then specifically and gently stimulated to strengthen their functionality.
What is MeRT and What makes it so Unique?
MeRT, or Magnetic Resonance Therapy, starts with sophisticated diagnostics to isolate exact areas of the brain that are not functioning or connecting optimally and personalizes treatment to the individual. Utilizing gentle magnetic waves to stimulate targeted areas exactly, MeRT can improve brain connectivity and function.
The equipment for MeRT has been cleared by the FDA.
Overcome barriers without the use of pharmaceuticals.
Treatment for each person is tailored to their needs.
MeRT is completely non-invasive and pain-free.
How Does MeRT Work?
Your brain’s electrical activity, brain waves, or thought patterns are unlike anyone else’s. That’s what makes MeRT therapy so compelling: we customize the treatment for each patient. This cutting-edge protocol uses the combined technologies of:
• qEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) – a non-invasive procedure that involves placing electrodes along the scalp to map your brainwaves. We use this information for highly targeted rTMS treatments.
• ECG/EKG (electrocardiogram) – a similar procedure to the qEEG that measures electrical signals coming from your heart. By measuring brain-heart coherence, we can target the rTMS therapy to be as accurate as possible.
• rTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation) – a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic induction coils placed along your scalp to stimulate specific areas of the brain.
The results of the qEEG and EKG tell us what is functioning normally and show us areas of dysregulation. We then use this information to create a precision treatment protocol using rTMS.
MeRT is an entirely non-surgical, non-invasive, and drug-free treatment.
The Four Steps of MeRT Treatment
By assessing the communication quality between the networks of neurons in your brain, we can hone in on and gently stimulate and “wake up” those areas to improve function.
Testing & Evaluation
On your first appointment, we will perform the qEEG, also often referred to as a brain scan, and an EKG as described above. This takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
These tests are painless, easy to do, and straightforward. They are performed right in our office.
Once testing is completed, our scientists and physicians will interpret and analyze the results to determine the exact function of the brain.
We carefully analyze the test results using a scientific and patented approach. Once the testing is completed and results evaluated, we will schedule a consultation with the Doctor to discuss the results and how these relate to symptoms being experienced.
Based on this analysis, we develop a treatment plan customized to your specific condition and schedule your assessment period of treatment.
Once your treatment protocols are in place, you will come to therapy, five days a week, in two-week intervals. You simply sit in a comfortable chair while a highly-trained neuro-technician places a magnetic coil on your head. This device produces a low-frequency magnetic field to induce mild electrical signals in the targeted areas of the brain.
Time spent in the chair is typically 30 minutes. The stimulation occurs for 6-8 seconds every minute.
We will monitor your progress throughout your daily treatments to confirm how you feel and track improvements. After two weeks of treatment, we will perform another qEEG and EKG to review your progress and make any needed modifications.
If there is a positive response to treatment during the assessment period, you will likely notice some symptom improvements. At that point, we will schedule treatment in two-week intervals.

- Better Concentration and Focus
- Improved Memory and Mental Clarity
- Decreased Pain
- Better Mood
- Improved Ability to Cope with Stress
- Increased attention span
- More motivation
- Fewer cravings (such as drugs or alcohol)
- Improved emotional stability
- More clarity of thought
- Increased ability to adapt to change
- Improved self-confidence and self-esteem

Talk with our New Patient Coordinator.
Our New Patient Coordinator is available to answer any questions that you may have about how MeRT can help you. She’ll take the time to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, explain costs, and any other details. She can also assist you in getting scheduled should you decide to move forward with treatment.
We understand what you may be going through, and our goal is to help guide you through the process with quality care in a warm and compassionate environment.
You don’t have to make any big decisions right off. You can start with an EEG and a consultation with the doctor, and together you can decide if you may benefit from MeRT.
While MeRT is a relatively new treatment protocol, it has shown some remarkable results. It doesn’t cost anything to call us and talk. Our New Patient Coordinator is here for you.
