Pacific Solstice offers a newer brain technology called MeRT℠ (Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy) to address underlying causes of chemical imbalances in the brain. We are taking the technology of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to a new level by combining it with integrative psychiatry.
What is MeRT℠?
MeRT℠ is a brain therapy that provides magnetic stimulation to reset your brain waves to function optimally. It is a newer, more customized version of the classically understood TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) which has been established since 1985.
MeRT℠ is a patented, evidence-based, FDA-approved, non invasive procedure that includes a combination of magnetic transcranial stimulation and electroencephalogram (EEG) to provide individualized relief, while optimizing brain function. The location of and intensity of stimulation varies and is customized for each patient. Most sessions last 30 - 45 minutes. It is common for a patient to feel improvement within five sessions, but within 3 months, cognitive and behavioral changes can be truly felt and noticed. MeRT℠ has a low side effect profile and is a painless procedure, including in children.
MeRT℠ works to deliver magnetic stimulation to certain areas of your brain to help reset and retrain your brain waves. This treatment is considered an alternative therapy that can help some patients decrease or even get off their medication. In the case of children, it can help prevent the need to start medication.
MeRT℠ can be used to treat a variety of conditions including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, substance use disorder, ADHD, TBI, and has even shown efficacy in Autism Spectrum Disorder. It may be used for ages 2 years old and up.
We are the preferred provider of TMS using MeRT℠ to reduce stress, improve focus, relieve trauma or injury, and treat an array of presenting problems through this prong of our integrated care. We understand sources of inflammation and seek to analyze individual brain patterns in order to stop the cycle and help you find relief once and for all. Our providers pair MeRT℠ with psychotherapy, circadian rhythm rebalancing and holistic medicine to provide the best results. It's our objective to help you be as informed about your brain as we are. Your goals are as valuable as the things that make you unique and a true phenomenon. Using the best technology and sharing enhanced coping and neurological care is the path we choose for the families we serve.
