Kayleigh explained the EEG with great detail and made me feel very comfortable.” – MeRT patient
Kayleigh was super helpful and sweet. She explained the process thoroughly and answered all the questions we asked. Amazing, professional lady and we look forward to working with her!” – MeRT patient
Staff are welcoming and make you feel at home. They are very transparent and truthful as to what you will be expecting and I believe they are there not just for the money, but will see the client after first two weeks for progress or positive results before continuing treatment. it’s a center that provides a ray of Hope. We are still on our second week and can’t see anything yet for sure as far as the effectiveness, but we are being optimistic and know that every patient is different.” – MeRT patient
I was at the END. BTC gave me a new beginning, a desire to try, and the hope that I could get better. Those things continue to grow as I re-enter life, and meet the challenges ahead. There aren’t enough words to adequately express my gratitude, but my hope is that my footsteps and voice can help comfort others and lead them to healing too. Thank you for showing me that I’m not alone. Forever, at your service.” – Tait
BTC is truly a special place filled with incredibly kind people, who all share the same goal of helping improve the lives of every patient.

“The staff, faculty, and overall treatment was excellent!! I really enjoyed the care I received, and I felt better as it progressed through the weeks. I got sick and had to miss some time, but the staff was understanding and when we resumed as normal, I felt much better. I would do it again for sure and will see if that is possible. I noticed more clarity of thought, confidence, and overall well-being after I completed the program. They even had a veteran meet me the first day.” – Brian M.

Jason O. Tells His Story About MeRT Helping Him Reclaim His Quality of Life After Suffering a Traumatic Brain Injury
Sports Recovery, Treatment for Multiple TBIs:
I’m two or three months past my last treatment, and I can honestly say my brain is in a better place than it was before. The emotional highs and lows I was living with have been stabilized. My cognition took off during that period and it hasn’t slowed down since.” – Nick Hardwick (Retired NFL Center, Chargers)
I’m back! My TBI turned me into someone I barely recognized. I was depressed, mean, and short-tempered. I pushed through life filled with frustration and a deep sense of sadness that this was it. I just had to keep pushing through life with an overwhelming tiredness. I’m so glad I was wrong. I think my direct reports and family are even more thankful. This treatment changed everything, and I am forever thankful.” – 41-year old male with TBI, Executive, Nov 2017
Excellent care from a wonderful staff. I came here for help treating my TBI after several combat tours and after 3 weeks, my insomnia dissipated. In week 4, I was having better thought processing and word choice. in weeks 5 and 6, I felt vibrant, alert, and happy. Job well done!!” – Veteran
I was offered the opportunity to attend the BTC to help with the effects of the TBI’s I had endured over the 21 yrs of Military Service. I am absolutely glad I did so. I felt the positive effects of the treatment in the first 3 days. I had irritability issues, although California Traffic will do that to you, and sleeping issues among other things. I started sleeping through the night on day 3. And not just sleeping but sleeping hard and dreaming. So I know I was in R.E.M sleep. It has helped me focus, feel more energetic, less irritable, more caring to others and helped with joint pain and tinnitus. The staff is also very amazing and extremely professional. I highly recommend the BTC. Trust the process and you’ll have the same results as I did.” – Veteran
Tait Fletcher, Actor and Stunt Performer, Discusses the Difference that MeRT Made in His Life After He Suffered Multiple Concussions:
I’d just always ‘outworked’ it. After the last concussion, that wasn’t an option, even though I had previously walked off a dozen concussions. It’s vital to know that not all TBIs result in massive concussions, but they all add to the erosion of the mind and self, if untreated.
For now, I want to ring the bell for Spencer and Fred and the whole crew at Brain Treatment Center Newport Beach. Through EEG, MeRT, and some subtle sleep and attention shifts, I’ve had a radical, nourishing, strengthening, and dare I say, “healing,” that has brought me to see life through a filter I’ve never known was available.
Giving life a chance is sometimes just staying in “the Try.” If you are damaged, confused, and at the end, know that you have allies that you’ve never met before.” – Tait Fletcher
Treatment for Depression:
I felt like I was alone even though I was surrounded by love and care. It was just a cloud that would linger over my life every now and again. BTC helped me better understand what was going on in my head and after a month of treatment I was grateful to be depression free and medication free for the first time in my life.” – BTC Patient
For anyone suffering from depression, anxiety, and other symptoms, I highly recommend trying MeRT at the Brain Treatment Center. My adult son who has suffered from both problems his entire life, and has been on medication, realized a positive change after the first visit. We saw dramatic improvement after each visit. This technology is truly a magic bullet for the right candidate. The staff is professional and friendly. The facilities are equally professional. I would highly recommend The BTC to anyone that can afford the treatments.” – Harold H.
Amazing experience, changed my life!” – Alex B.
Treatment for Severe Sleep Conditions:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia — I’ve had these for over 20 years with severe cognitive deficits and pain that forced me into retirement at age 45. The clinic determined my problem at this point is extremely disordered sleep, which I had thought of as another symptom rather than a cause. After 7 weeks of treatment last August and September, my sleep began to improve. The fibro pain is completely gone, my memory is better and I’m getting my life back. Of course, I have to do my part to continue to go in the right direction, and yes, it costs money. BUT if this had been available 20 years ago, it still would have been much less costly than 20 years of lost wages and having to drop out of so much of life. Anyone who is struggling with CFS and Fibro should SERIOUSLY consider at least a consultation. I gave up hope a long time ago of ever getting better. I was wrong and the next 20 years are looking so much better than the last. Make the call. Spend the money. You are worth every penny.” – CJS
My anxiety during the day has improved, now being awake I have moments of tremendous peace of mind. At night, I’m sleeping in straight and really waking up rested. I recommend you visit them and start with * Electroencephalogram * and from there they will explain the current state of their brain, great scientific treatment! Many thanks to ALL the team at BTC.” – MdC
Wow! I heard about the results other people had and I was both skeptical and hopeful. Lucky for me, I, too, achieved spectacular results. The entire team throughout the entirety of the treatment was so welcoming and encouraging. They were helpful and friendly – always greeting me with a smile and eager to assist with answers to any questions or matters concerning scheduling. Upon starting treatment, I noticed improvement in my sleep almost immediately, which is a miracle in itself. For more than a decade, I struggled to fall and stay asleep and when I woke, I never felt rested. After a month of treatment I can say that for the first time in a decade that I have gotten solid, consistent, restful, and natural sleep. About halfway through my treatment, a proverbail switch was flipped. It’s difficult to explain but I guess the ‘noise’ inside my head was silenced. My ability to handle stress and plan for the future improved. I’m also able to respond instead of react, not just physically, but emotionally and mentally as well. I’m not on the edge 24/7 anymore.” – Billy E.
It was absolutely terrifying to not know what was wrong with me or how to fix the problem. BTC not only identified the deteriorated state of my brainwave activity, they restored its function… I consider the healing I experienced at BTC to be nothing short of a miracle.” – US Army Veteran
After 23 years, 11 combat tours, and plenty of loss, this Green Beret has been reborn and I tip my hat to everyone with BTC. I’m back from hell on earth and free once again.” – US Green Beret
After returning from Iraq, Sgt. Jon Warren struggled with PTSD and sought various forms of treatment to improve his mental health to no avail. Then he found the Brain Treatment Center.
A guy who was making a film who was filming documentaries got a hold of me after reading that article and said you need to come check out what’s happening at the Brain Treatment Center. They’ve been doing some amazing things with autistic children and several of them have gone back to being neuro-typical. You might want to come see what they are doing with PTSD. They just started taking veterans in and helping them with their symptoms.
When I came in there, I was a mess. I was terrified of not getting better, of trying yet another very hopeful procedure that was going to let me down. So I sat down and had my EEG and I remember waiting for the doctor to interpret it and thinking what if this thing comes back normal, then what, and where do I go from here. That was scary. But as soon as he pulled it up, he said, “Woah, it looks like your frontal cortex is sleeping right now,” and he started describing to me a lot of my symptoms that they could tell, just by the loss of synchronicity that was in my brain, and the neurons that weren’t working in my favor, that they could tell that I was impulsive, that I would have a substance abuse issue, that I wasn’t sleeping, that I was depressed, that it was difficult for me to concentrate, and the list goes on. But they were just very accurate in describing situations that would play out in my life.
What they were going to use was magnetic stimulation to basically tune my brain back up, to get my frequencies right in my head and to allow my brain to communicate with itself, and all I had to do was to get some sunlight in the morning and I get to bed at night. I slept great the very first night, I slept for about 10 hours. I was really excited about that and I didn’t notice that much for about two weeks. I sat down to have a drink with a buddy and I we usually went to drink a handle of rum together. After the first cocktail, he went to pour another one and I just told him I’m okay right now, which was shocking even to me, because that wasn’t my norm. I was usually very anxious and needed to calm down somehow. But in this particular instance, I felt really good. I wanted to test that, that relief of anxiety and that peace that I felt because I was sitting across from my best friend and thought, maybe this was a fluke.
But the next day I went to the Brain Treatment Center and instead of leaving after my 30-minute treatment, I decided to stick around for another 30 minutes, and in doing so, I realized that I was able to be in connection with people. I sat down and I was calm and present and centered for the first time. I was actually able to hear people speaking and my mind wasn’t racing. I was able to keep track of the conversation that was happening and give feedback and contribute to the conversation. I actually enjoyed it, I felt connected and it was very addicting to me and I wanted more of that feeling. So I just started hanging around more and more, especially with the veterans. I felt very close and known with them and when I was surrounded with them, and it was freeing. I just felt like I have got to come out more and more of my shell and stop isolating and I was getting back to who I was before, which was an outgoing social, friendly, life-of-the-party kind of guy.” See a video of Jon’s talk here.
George Nacker Discusses His Results After Going Through Treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
This place is amazing. The people are wonderful. As a mother of a 31 year old autistic son, this place has given me hope. My son is doing much better and we are excited about our future. Seeing changes in him that I only dreamed of. The staff is incredible. Thank you so much!” – Justin
Dr. Kim was very helpful in explaining in detail the treatment and what benefits my child can get from it. She was able to answer all my questions and concerns!” – Paula
I have a (6) year old son who has autism and the Brain Treatment Center has helped him tremendously.
He has improved specifically in his auditory processing and speech along with a reduction in his toe walking. He attends a special school and receives Speech, OT, PT and ABA therapies. ALL his teachers including the speech therapist have said he has improved dramatically during the (4) weeks of therapy he had while attending the Brain Treatment Center in Newport Beach, CA. We have worked with our son since he was diagnosed at (16) months old, he has received Early Intervention and then attended special schooling receiving one on one attention using ABA and OT, Pt and speech. He improved in attention and following directions and social interactions and pretend play etc. but his toe walking and speech were still a problem with major delays in speech and severe toe walking no matter what we tried.
I strongly believe that our son was ready for the MRT treatment because he was prepared by having his body chemically balanced and healthy. Then after applying the treatment he made huge gains in his ability to communicate and huge reduction in toe walking. We feel he would benefit even more with additional treatments and we’re looking to arrange for them now.” – Frank P.
Flying over to the US from South Korea just to get MeRT treatment was not the easiest decision I had to make. But I definitely think it was one of the best decisions I have made for my child for his autism. I want to say that MeRT has changed my son’s life. I want to thank everyone who works at BTC Newport Beach! Dr. Kim was always very nice and kind to our family. She answered all of our questions, even the ones we thought it was too trivial to ask.
All of the technicians at BTC Newport Beach were awesome. They were all very patient with my child, who is very sensitive and has a very low level of concentration, so that he could go through everyday’s therapy with no problem. I really felt like every technician truly cared about all the children who were there getting MeRT, and I personally think this is the most important aspect to consider when getting MeRT, because the staff are the ones that the children would interact with every day. Last, but not least, the patient care coordinators were very helpful with the schedules, documents, etc. They made our visit much more comfortable. Thank you all very much!
I want to discuss how MeRT has helped my child. There are 3 major changes I have noticed about my child after 8 weeks of treatment. First, the eye contact. Like most autistic kids, my child’s ability to keep eye contact was very poor. His eye contract would only last for seconds, so I had to keep asking him to look at me when I was talking to him.
After the treatment, his eye contact lasts much longer, many times for the entire conversation. Not only does he look at me longer, but he really LOOKS at me. Second, his awareness has improved. When I tried to talk to him before, he would mostly repeat what I had just said. After the treatment, he seems to better understand what I am saying to him. Now, he demands more, he is more insistent (in a good way), and heals uses many new words. Our communication is much more meaningful.
Last, he has improved in fine motor skills. My child did not show much interest in using pencils or scissors, because he simply could not use them very well. But now, he draws pictures and writes letters with different writing tools, and even cuts out complex shapes with scissors.
MeRT did not cure my child. However, out of many different therapies I had for him for the past several years, this has been the most effective therapy by far which brought noticeable changes in a short period of time. I hope this testimonial would help the parents who are considering MeRT for their child, and also wish that more autistic children can benefit from MeRT!” – J. Her
Our little son has great results. Everytime time we did MeRT we had new improvements on his attentional deficit. In his case at first was affected his brain connection with the speaking motor (TEL) as first local diagnosis. We did 4 sessions of 5/6 weeks and every time we notice differences, every MeRT enabled my son to get more of his outside world. At his 4.5yrs he didn’t speak anything, now with 5.5yrs he is speaking and counting till 30. We hope we can continue with more sessions in a near future because his attentional deficit is much better but noticeable. Thanks BTC Irvine.” – APK
This is by far the best thing we’ve done for our son we have been here two weeks and he loves it the staff is amazing so patient with my son he has been so good after his first day it was a turn around his anxiety levels have dropped now he is confident and open to change thank you brain treatment center I recommend it perfect to all the families that have kids with autism worth every penny.” – Adriana
My son had vaccine poisoning and got brain damage due to neurotoxicity. He became very violent, nonverbal, and had severe autistic behaviors, he was so violent that he gave 4 stitches on my lip and nerve damage on my left eye because of his violent behaviors. I couldn’t be alone with my son and couldn’t hug or touch him, it broke my heart. My husband and I brought my son to California from Hawaii to go to the Brain Treatment Center. Within one week of the treatment my son was more calm and I got to hug him for the first time in 2 yrs. My son did 6 weeks of treatment and he received another 4 weeks of treatment. My son is much calmer and started playing ping, shooting basketball, kicking the soccer ball, exercising, started volunteering at different programs, catching the city bus with his para workers and started talking!!! I love BTC because they gave me back my son. – MH
We had exhausted every available treatment hoping to help our daughter. Nothing worked — then we found Brain Treatment Center. MeRT changed everything for us.” – BTC Patient
I would love to give a shout-out to the Brain Treatment Center and everyone who did the therapy on me there because this was the last therapy I got in my life of living with autism!This changed me completely! This one stopped me from shaking my strings a few weeks after, and now I can drive and run on ridges and am a cashier at Costco and run marathons!I would 100 percent recommend these guys!” – Ashley R.
