During my sessions at NeuroTechnologies of the Treasure Coast, I constantly bombarded Brian and Pete with questions, and the most important one of all was, "When will I feel the difference?" The other day I had a small argument with my mom and she decided to exclaim, "you are back to exactly how you were before brain training!" It was when she said that, that I sat down and thought about what Brain State had truly done for me.
That was when my questions were answered.
Before I went to Brian and Pete, I had been unhappy for months, there wasn't a night that I didn't feel alone, or a time that I played tennis without having the urge to turn my tennis racket into something unrecognizable. Along with that, I also had a huge lack of confidence in myself, appearance as well as personality, and often couldn't clearly remember what I had done the day before.
I may still get annoyed, say bad words on the tennis court, or argue with my parents. But what they don't see, and which is the most important thing of all, is that I am finally happy. Things don't weigh me down the way they used to, I am able to take things in stride and move on like I was never able to do before. No longer do I think for minutes about one text that I am going to send to a girl, I have the confidence to be myself and accept the consequences of that! I am able to think logically about (almost) every decision I make, which is something that I had a huge issue with before. When I lose something, I am literally able to go back hours in my brain and
go step by step through the house until I find it. On the tennis court I am still an emotional player, but I now am able to CONTROL what I feel, no longer do I smash the racket or yell just because I act on impulse. Overall I can honestly say that Brain State does not alter your personality, it simply gives you a way to be happy again.
Thank you Brian and Pete.

Brain training has allowed me to feel a sense of calm on and off the court. I used
to be known as a hot head with all the physical tools and gifts but no head. I often struggled with wondering why I could lose to in my mind lesser players, but now I realize the biggest key to succeeding in a high performance sport is a cool head
able to think clearly in the heat of the moment and make rational decisions.
During the brain training and after I have experienced set- backs and have been
able to motivate myself rather than saying screw this I want to quit and jump off a bridge. Since the brain training I have overcome my fear of flying and high anxiety when flying as well as panic attacks while playing matches and practice matches.
I feel I do have an advantage over people without a balanced brain because I'm
able to process information quicker and make rational decisions, rather than
making an unforced error and looking at my racket and doing a shadow stroke of
a forehand still having no clue how I missed the shot. I recommend the brain training for anyone looking to improve their game or life off the court. The brain training has helped me gain a perspective I've never had. Instead of forcing things and trying to get what I want, I can sit back relax and let the moment come to me without the stress. My game has improved a lot just by relaxing letting go of stress and letting
go of my forehand or any stroke. The brain training is a full commitment to get the full benefit you have to give 100%.

Q: In your professional background as a coach, how does brain training help you to help your athletes?
In sports, there is a clear line between winning and losing. It is crucial to recognize and improve the smallest thing that may lead to success. Tennis is physically, mentally and technically very demanding. To stay at the top of their games, players try to narrow down any weakness and improve all their strengths. Once they achieve certain technical and physical level, the success will then be determined by the way they manage and control their emotions.
It is generally accepted that a player deals with some degree of anxiety before
or during the match. However, if anxiety is not controlled it can be detrimental to performance. It’s not a case of getting rid of the butterflies; it’s a question of
getting them to fly in formation (Olympic basketball coach Jack Donahue).
In life and in sports the brain is the answer to peak performance. A player with a “balanced brain” is able of self-regulation (arousal control) to achieve maximum performance. Conversely, a player with an “emotional oriented brain” is likely to
react negatively to an obstacle during competition and carry negative emotions along. Brain training facilitates the player to manage emotions effectively, make
best decisions; and therefore attain the so desired “ideal performance state”,
simply because the brain has been maximized.

I have suffered with depression, anxiety and bouts of insomnia for over a decade. I have sought the help of numerous medical professional throughout the years which began my education with pharmaceuticals. I have taken Zoloft, Welbutrin, Lyrica, Geodon , Seroquoel, Klonopin, Lunesta, Ambien, and Depakote. All proving ineffective and at times rendering me feeling completely drug induced. I found myself “functioning” but not truly “living”.
Distressed and frustrated with the entire process, I decided to stop all medications and see how I would do. Obviously, it didn’t take long for the depression to set in along with the sleepless nights. So I began taking a low dose of Welbutrin for the depression and Klonopin to sleep. Once again I was back on medication and still not feeling the way I thought I should be. I was still experience severe bouts of sadness, this time they were truly interfering with my ability to be a wife and mother.
Luckily, I became aware of NeuroTechnologies. At this point I was willing to listen to any alternative that would help me regain control of my life again that didn’t involve further medications. The mechanics behind NeuroTechnologies intrigued me! To actually be able to see what was going on inside my brain and be able to chart and graph my progress was an option far more appealing to me than “just take another pill and let’s see how this one works”. There was actual science behind this method of recovery, progress that I could see as well as feel. And feel it I did. I signed up for 20 sessions and by my 8th I was experiencing a dramatic change in my mood and sleep.
You know when a protocol is a success when your family comments on how much they see a change in you. My children commented that since I began my treatments, “Mom is our old mom again; she really likes to spend time with us. We are actually laughing and having a good time with her again!” For me that meant the world and has proven to me that NeuroTechnologies is the answer to a prayer that I have been searching for over ten years!
My experience with the science of NeuroTechnologies and its learned staff has been
nothing less than a miracle for me! I highly recommend trying this method of treatment. Your path to a happy, sleep filled life is only sessions away!
