MeRT, which stands for Magnetic Resonance
Therapy, employs the use of noninvasive
magnetic waves directed at specific
areas of the brain that are not
communicating or connecting as they
should, to gently stimulate those regions.
MeRT is Safe and Gentle
Conditions treated include Autism, ADHD,
Concussions and Cognitive Performance.

Why Magnetic Resonance Therapy is Safe and Gentle
Our Treatment begins with very thorough imaging and diagnostics to hone in on the exact areas of the brain that are not communicating the way they should. Gentle magnetic stimulation is then used on these specific regions of the brain to nurture and improve connectivity and functionality.
FDA CLEARED EQUIPMENT
We only use FDA-cleared equipment for Magnetic Resonance Therapy.
Our protocols use magnetic pulses, which are pain-free and non-invasive.
There are no medications or forms of sedation needed or used for MeRT.
