In the picturesque city of Greenwood Village, Colorado, just a short drive from Denver, lies a haven of hope and healing – the Braincare Performance Center. Founded by Sean Haberberger, a former US Navy SEAL who personally experienced the transformative power of Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT), this cutting-edge center offers a beacon of hope for individuals grappling with conditions like depression, PTSD, and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s).
Customized Care with MeRT:
MeRT, a highly customized form of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), is at the heart of Braincare Performance Center’s approach. The treatment, based on sophisticated diagnostics, aims to restore brain function without relying on pharmaceuticals or invasive procedures.
When someone reaches out for the first time, they begin with a consultation to go over the specifics of the technology, their previous medical history, and what they aim to gain by going through treatment. Once a mutual fit is decided, the personalized approach begins with a Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) to map each patient’s unique brain function, providing insights into patterns of dysfunction.
Sean describes the qEEG as “a look behind the veil,” allowing the team to tailor a specific treatment plan for each individual. After the qEEG, the patient then meets with a physician before scheduling their first treatment. Utilizing FDA-cleared equipment, the center then administers magnetic waves to gently stimulate targeted areas of the brain, balancing activity and restoring function. Trained technicians carefully position the magnetic coil on the patient’s head, delivering an individualized treatment protocol for approximately 30-45 minutes, five days a week, over six to eight weeks.
Tracking Progress and Adjusting Care:
Monitoring progress is a crucial aspect of Braincare Performance Center’s commitment to patient well-being. Every two weeks, a repeat EEG is conducted to track advancements and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan. This meticulous approach ensures that each patient receives the most effective and tailored care throughout their MeRT journey.
MeRT: A Personal Journey to Recovery:
Sean Haberberger’s journey to opening Braincare Performance Center is deeply rooted in his personal experience with MeRT. As a former Navy SEAL exposed to significant head trauma, Sean battled anxiety and sleep issues that plagued his daily life. His encounter with MeRT became a pivotal moment, as the treatment lifted the veil of depression, revealing a new sense of normalcy and well-being. He described driving home from his 7th week of treatment when he felt a lightbulb turning on. “I didn’t realize how depressed I was until I wasn’t depressed. I had no clue.” He remembered thinking, “This is what normal people feel like?”. Motivated by his own transformative experience, Sean made it his mission to open a center that could extend this hope to others.
A Beacon of Hope for Mental Health:
Braincare Performance Center’s impact extends beyond its local community, with individuals traveling from out of state seeking the transformative benefits of MeRT. The center’s comprehensive approach, from initial consultations that demystify the technology to the delivery of personalized treatments, sets a new standard for mental health care.
Sean Haberberger’s vision has blossomed into a sanctuary where individuals with depression, PTSD, and TBI’s can find solace and healing. Through Braincare Performance Center, Sean and his team are rewriting the narrative of mental health, offering not just treatment but a renewed sense of hope for a brighter future. Braincare Performance Center is indeed making strides in helping individuals rediscover that sense of normalcy and reclaim their lives.
