Welcome to NEUCOA

We are the only provider in Hampton Roads Virginia offering Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT) from Wave Neuroscience.

MeRT is the patented next generation of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) therapy.

TMS has been FDA approved since 2008 for the treatment of major depression in adult patients who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication.

We have also treated patients affected by PTSD, Anxiety, Traumatic Brain Injury, ADHD, ADD, Spinal cord injuries and Autism. Our goal is to help individuals enhance their overall mental health, cognitive and neurological function.

The MeRT℠ Process


A customized & targeted approach to Neuromodulation

It is important to us that our clients understand we take a personalized approach for each patient. Therapy begins by identifying where each individual’s brain is having difficulty communicating. These areas are then specifically nurtured to strengthen their functionality.


Step 1

Consultation and Patient Intake

During this step, you will meet with our staff for a detailed explanation of how MeRT could benefit your unique situation. Our clinical provider(s) will review your patient intake forms, questionnaires and have you sign our consent forms. We use these assessments to determine what therapy/therapies are best for you and your desired treatment expectations.

We care about your privacy. All of your personal and health information is protected in accordance with HIPAA guidelines


Step 2

Record EEG

We conduct an eyes-closed 10 minute quantitative electroencephalogram (q-EEG) and an electrocardiogram (EKG) tests that measure brain wave frequencies, heart rate and brain-heart coherence.

Our scientific and clinical teams analyze the results to better understand your brain state.


Step 3

EEG Analysis & Review

We use a patented approach with your neurophysiological data to develop a customized treatment plan that aims to encourage healthy brain communication.

All MeRT treatment parameters are approved by a licensed neurosurgeon or physician.


Step 4

Treatment

Your trained MeRT technician will position the magnetic coil on your head while you are seated comfortably in our treatment room. This coil will deliver your individualized treatment protocol to the targeted region of the brain.

A typical appointment is 45 minutes, 30 minutes of which involve stimulation.


Step 5

Progress Evaluation

We take sequential q-EEG and EKG recordings every 10 treatments to monitor progress and make any necessary modifications to your treatment protocol. This ensures we are always taking the best approach based on your current neurological state. A typical course of MeRT varies, but can range between 4-6 weeks on average, Monday through Friday.
