We explore the concept that the brain can be treated by physical means. With the exploration of the relationship between cognition and neural activity, an informed approach to non-invasive neuromodulation is possible. Brain Treatment Center Newport Beach’s dedicated team of neuroscientists and physicians believes in delivering individualized treatment to each person. This allows people to achieve a healthier life with neurological issues.

Starting as a New Patient
You are not required to go through an assessment period after completing your initial qEEG/EKG and consultation. Some people may prefer to wait once they speak with the doctor. Strict observation of our regimens is required to ensure optimal results. Results may vary based on the individual users and are not guaranteed. Results of therapy can vary per individual. In general, the longer the length of MeRT therapy, the longer the changes remain.
Since each brain is unique, the protocol will be different for each patient depending on specific qEEG/EKG data from your brain, and the specific condition that’s treated. Generally, the results of treatment can last a lifetime. But, some people do prefer occasional follow-up treatment as needed. A typical treatment session takes about 45 minutes. The patient sits in a chair while the neuro technician administers the treatment. This involves using a hand-held magnet that is near the scalp. The gentle magnetic impulses last for 6-8 seconds each minute. You may feel a slight sensation during treatment, but it is not painful or uncomfortable.
Each individual is different, protocols may vary. Your provider will have scheduled follow-up EEGs and meet with you to gauge your progress.
