If you are an athlete who wants to improve concentration, reaction time and dexterity or have a sharper mental edge to compete, Brainwave Optimization technology will greatly enhance your performance.
As the world’s top golfers head to the U.S. Open in Pebble Beach this weekend, our thoughts turn to how Brainwave Optimization has proven to be an effective method for helping golfers get in the zone.
Brainwave Optimization is first and foremost, about relaxation and self-regulation, two characteristics that are absolutely essential to the game of golf. Golfing great Bobby Jones said, “You swing your best when you have the fewest things to think about.” Certainly, the world will be watching to see if Tiger Woods will be able to set aside the many things he has to think about in order to focus on his game. He would focus best with a brain in balance. When your brain is in a state of balance and harmony your thoughts are clear, your focus is strong, your reactions are fast, your balance is steady and your dexterity is precise.
A brain map is an easy way to actually see what is going on inside your head and understand how you can train your brain into optimal performance. A current European long-drive champion had this to say: “I feel more balanced more focused and, I have to say, very much more positive. It opened a lot of doors in my brain. Before brain training, I was very insecure. After 10 or 15 sessions, I went to the long-drive championship and won second. I’m gonna’ win next year.”
Brian N., a television producer, also experienced Brainwave Optimization in the hope of improving his golf game. In a recent letter, he writes: “Thought I’d bring you up to date with what’s happening with my golf game. There must be a long-term residual effect from your program. We haven’t seen each other for a few months, but my golf game continues to improve. If memory serves me, when we started my handicap was around a 12. Think it got down to about a nine at the end of the year. Currently, it’s at an 8.3, and I expect it to be under an eight when the new ones come out in May.
Hitting the ball great off the tee. Irons are better than they were, and putting has significantly improved. I’ve noticed that I seem to get “in the zone” more often and stay there longer.”
FOR COMPETITIVE ATHLETES
Dami Egbeyemi trains hard – both his body and his mind.
“Once you balance the brain, the body follows,” said Egbeyemi. “My background is in computer technology and IT; I have also been doing martial arts since I was about 14. Martial art is a way to keep myself fit – both mentally and physically. Incorporating martial arts and technology is where brain training comes in.”
Egbeyemi took a break from Taekwon-Do for a few years and became involved in skateboarding and attended college. At 21, he returned to mixed martial arts, and moved back to Regina from Prince Albert to train with professionals such as Jeff Wiley. At the same time, he began to understand how training the mind is just as important as training the body.
“I was going through depression, anxiety, and stress, and I found that my sports performance wasn’t at its optimum,” said Egbeyemi. “I started doing yoga and meditation, and found I was able to improve performance quite a bit. Then I found out about guided imagery – visualization techniques that help me get better at what I do. A friend introduced me to Brain State Technologies. It was a video basically talking about how the technology can help people with depression and anxiety to improve their problems without the use of medication. That really appealed to me.”
Egbeyemi began researching and talked to the creator of Brainwave Optimization. He learned about the different ways brainwave technology can help people, and also learned how it could help golfers improve their golf score. “I thought, ‘if it can help golfers, what can it do for someone who is involved in martial arts, Nascar, or football?’” said Egbeyemi. “One of the reasons people reach performance blocks is because of the brain. When the brain perceives some kind of traumatic experience or event – even if it’s emotional – and the person can’t overcome it, what happens is they reach a peak and they can’t get through it or move to the next level. This technology actually trains the brain; kind of like an athlete would go into the gym, to become stronger and improve their performance. This is improving the performance of the brain so that it reacts faster, it’s optimized, and it’s functioning at a higher level.”
