TMS Therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)


Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental condition impacting communication, behavior, and social interaction. With varied symptoms and degrees of severity, ASD affects people differently, ranging from mild to significant impacts on their daily lives.

Common signs of ASD include:

  • Difficulty with social interactions and communication
  • Repetitive behaviors or movements
  • Sensitivity to change or transitions
  • Sensory sensitivities
  • Speech or language difficulties

At Shore Clinical TMS & Wellness Center, we understand the complexities of ASD and provide compassionate treatment options, including Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MeRT), a type of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy for autism.

How Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT) Works for Autism Spectrum Disorder

Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT), a kind of TMS therapy for autism, targets specific brain regions associated with ASD using magnetic fields. Unlike traditional TMS, MeRT tailors treatment based on individual Electroencephalogram (EEG) patterns, ensuring a personalized approach.

During MeRT sessions, patients wear a specialized helmet delivering precise magnetic pulses to targeted brain areas. Customized to each person's brain activity, these pulses promote neuroplasticity - the brain's ability to adapt.

By targeting cognitive, behavioral, and emotional functions, MeRT aims to improve social interaction, communication, and repetitive behaviors in ASD.

Benefits of MeRT for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Personalized Treatment: MeRT tailors therapy to each individual's brain activity, addressing specific ASD symptoms effectively.

Improved Neuroplasticity: MeRT enhances the brain's ability to adapt, potentially leading to better cognitive and behavioral outcomes.

Reduced Side Effects: MeRT is associated with minimal side effects, ensuring a safer treatment experience than medications.

Better Mood Regulation: MeRT targets mood-related brain circuits, offering relief from mood disturbances commonly seen in ASD.

Enhanced Cognitive Function: MeRT promotes better cognitive control, aiding in the development of healthier behaviors and coping mechanisms.

Restored Reward Processing: MeRT helps restore balanced reward-processing circuits, reducing problematic behaviors associated with seeking rewards.

Complementary Therapy: MeRT complements existing ASD treatments, providing a holistic approach for improved overall outcomes.
