New, non-invasive, drug-free treatment can free you from the aftereffects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be a nightmare—literally. PTSD can cause flashbacks, night terrors, and severe anxiety. The symptoms can last for months or years and can interfere with your day-to-day functioning. If you’ve experienced PTSD, you know this all too well. And you’d do anything to be free from the debilitating effects.
You’ve likely tried several treatments, and some may have worked to a greater or lesser degree. But the trauma still haunts you. And it’s seriously affecting your day-to-day life.
We understand how painful this can be. And that’s why we offer a breakthrough new treatment for PTSD. It’s called MeRT, or Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy.
MeRT Treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
MeRT is a tailored, highly individualized form of TMS or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. We use magnetic waves to stimulate specifically targeted areas of the brain found not to be communicating or functioning optimally. We use sophisticated diagnostic tools and imaging to plan a tailored treatment approach just for you.
Patients with PTSD have markers that can be clearly seen in EEG studies. We work to identify these markers that cause disruptions in the brain and strengthen healthy brainwave activity through a highly personalized treatment plan. This treatment can result in a significant reduction of PTSD symptoms.
Plus, many people who experience post-traumatic stress also suffer from conditions such as depression and anxiety. The MeRT treatment can address those conditions as well. *

Think you might have PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health disorder that begins after a traumatic event. That event may involve a real or perceived threat of injury or death.
This can include:
- a natural disaster like an earthquake or tornado
- military combat
- physical or sexual assault or abuse
- an accident
People with PTSD feel a heightened sense of danger. This alters their natural fight-or-flight response, causing them to feel stressed or fearful, even when they’re safe.
PTSD used to be called “shell shock” or “battle fatigue” because it often affects war veterans. According to the National Center for PTSD, it’s estimated that about 15 percent of Vietnam War veterans and 12 percent of Gulf War veterans have PTSD.
But PTSD can happen to anyone at any age. It occurs as a response to chemical and neuronal changes in the brain after exposure to threatening events. And having PTSD doesn’t mean you’re flawed or weak.
It’s also possible to have delayed PTSD symptoms, where they don’t show up until years later; PTSD from child abuse is one example of this.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms
Here are some possible symptoms you may experience with PTSD:
- Depression or a generally negative outlook
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Flashbacks to the event
- Inability to sleep or repeated nightmares about the traumatic event
- Avoiding people, places, or events that remind you of the trauma
- Difficulty concentrating/memory problems
- Doing things that could be self-destructive or reckless
- Emotional numbness or being cut off from your feelings
- Being easily upset, angered, irritable, or exhibiting aggressive behavior
- Hyper-alertness to sounds
- Feeling jumpy or easily startled
- Thoughts of suicide
While PTSD may improve with medication and therapy, 20-50% of all patients don’t respond to conventional treatments. Yet, TMS—a key component of MeRT—has shown some remarkable results. The National Institutes of Health has published several studies that show the effectiveness of TMS for post-traumatic stress.
According to a 2019 study, TMS showed effectiveness for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). And a 2018 trial found that TMS alongside cognitive processing therapy was effective for PTSD and that the therapeutic effect of this combination lasted for six months.
The MeRT treatment plan is highly individualized for each person, with the purpose of improved brain communication. This can lead to significant clinical improvements and a vastly improved quality of life. *
Life can be so much better…
There is hope for relief from the trauma and stress of PTSD with MeRT.
After exhausting all options, this Army veteran was at the end of his rope. Then he tried MeRT.
Scot was a retired Army Delta Force operator. As tough as they come, right? Not when it came to what was going on in his brain.
“It was absolutely terrifying not to know what was wrong with me or how to fix the problem,” he said. He’d tried everything, from traditional medicine to psychotherapy to hyperbaric chambers, but nothing made him feel any better.
He felt utterly misunderstood by those around him. They thought he was going crazy. They didn’t want to be around him for fear of what he might do. He felt trapped inside his head—a horrible place to be for someone with PTSD.
Then he heard about a Brain Treatment called MeRT, or Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy. He figured he had nothing to lose, so he gave it a try.
“They not only identified the deteriorated state of my brainwave activity, they restored its function,” Scot said.
Two months after treatment, he felt like he had a whole new brain: “I consider the healing I experienced to be nothing short of a miracle.”
You don’t have to decide right away
Take the easy Steps to Determine if MeRT is the Right Treatment
It’s difficult to know, just from reading this, if MeRT is the right treatment for you. Because we understand this, we know that your first step needs to be a simple one: a phone consultation with our New Patient Coordinator. During this call, you can discuss your symptoms and history, ask questions, and have her explain the protocols, fees, and treatment details.
Then, if you are interested in taking the next step, we can set up an appointment for an EEG (a simple, non-invasive brain scan) and a second appointment for a consultation with neurosurgeon Dr. Mark Liker, our Medical Director.
Once we have analyzed your test results, you will have a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Liker. You can attend this appointment virtually if you wish. During this time, you will discuss your symptoms and he will go over the treatment protocols with you. You can also ask him further questions so that together, you can determine if you are a candidate for treatment.
If you and the doctor both determine that MeRT may be the right treatment, the next step is a short Assessment Period. This entails a short period of treatment, followed by a new EEG to see if you are responding to the treatment.
We assess this based on the new EEG results, as well as symptom improvements. If there is a positive response to treatment during the assessment period, you will have likely noticed some improvements. At that point, we can schedule the rest of the treatment.
So, as you can see, there are many steps involved in ensuring that you receive only treatment that will benefit you.
