Edmund Nelson, Steeler Analyst, endorses Ultimate Sleep! "I usually think this stuff is hocus pocus, but I actually slept really well with Sanna's Ultimate Sleep program. It is very effective and calming. I slept well and felt rested. I don't hear it all the way through because I am sleeping soundly. I endorse Ultimate Sleep for Sports and Competition as another tool to help improve athletic performance."
John Lamana, Head Coach, Franciscan University Basketball Team: "The time our men's basketball program spent with Sanna was extremely fruitful. She was able to bring our student-athletes to a place mentally that none of them had experienced before. After the first meeting, we had new found confidence that led to our best performance of the season. She provided us with techniques that we used during practice, pre-game talks, halftime talks and even during timeouts that proved to improve our focus and overall performance. I have had the opportunity to work with a well-known sports psychologist who charged very high prices for their time, and my experience with Sanna was so much more productive and beneficial! Sanna really understands how the human body and mind work together for optimal performance. Her program was an incredible experience and I would recommend Sanna to work with you or your program. I know I will have her work with my men's basketball team again next season!"
From Injured and Distressed to All-Conference Honorable Mention: "Sanna, C is now a freshman at _____ College. The work you did with him last Spring in helping him overcome his injury was amazing. He went on to be one of the key pitchers for the team and although he only pitched a portion of the season due to the injury - he received an All-Conference Honorable Mention as a pitcher. We are so proud of him for overcoming, and we know the work you did with him was a turning point (yoga and 2 sessions!) He is playing collegiate baseball at ________ and hopes to be a starting pitcher this year! I will keep you posted." C.D., PA
Nurse Passes Nursing State Exam after 3 Failed Tries: Hi Sanna, It went really well. I scored an 1103 when what I needed was a 925!

Four Month Slump Leads to All-American: "I don't know if you recall that you treated an athlete from Pitt last week, but as his uncle, I would like to say THANK YOU! It's impossible to know exactly what made him come back and perform very well during the NCAA wrestling finals this weekend, but I suspect that it had something to do with you."
"He was a great wrestler but never had the composure to finish strong at the national finals. Late this season he had been wrestling way below his capability and was on a losing streak. That was not the case this weekend - he wrestled strong and won an "All American" title - 8th in the nation."
The interesting thing is that during his last bout to secure "All American" status, he suffered a concussion early in the round. He kept wrestling like he was on autopilot and eventually got the win after 2 tiebreaker periods. It was really amazing to watch. Unfortunately, the injury forced him to withdraw from the competition so he could not advance any further than 8th. I wanted you to know that I believe you had something to do with his turnaround." Carl H., Pgh.

Ice Skating Champion: “I went to one of Sanna sessions because of extreme performance anxiety and negative self-thinking. Sanna spent so much time with me and also came along before my session to observe my sport and what it entailed. I experienced so much positive energy out of my session. It was also therapeutic talking about my negative self-doubts. Then we did guided imagery and visualization. When the big day came, instead of feeling like I was going to die and walk off the floor in front of the judges, I actually felt really confident, had complete control over my breathing and knew I could do a great job. I went out and performed for ME, for what I love. Thanks, Sanna, you worked a miracle. I thought I could never do it!” Amanda B., Ice Skater Competitor

State Wrestling Champion: "Joe has been having a hard time "getting his head right" since school started - he's had a terribly hard schedule, football, tons of homework, etc - and only getting 5 hours of sleep or so a night - and not good sleep - sometimes he's so stressed and wound up he wakes up every hour. This week he finally decided to try The Ultimate Sleep cd. Keep in mind he usually sleeps with the tv and lights on - he turned them off, put on the cd, and when I peeked in on him after 15 min, he was sound asleep, checked 30 minutes later, still sound asleep. The next night I checked after about 30 minutes and he was out - no tv, no lights. The next night he just turned off the tv and lights and went to sleep - even without the cd! I just wanted to let you know, just in the couple of nights he's used it, he's gotten more rest and more quality rest. Thanks so much for this... I don't think he's had many nights of good rest since he was born.... And now he has won STATES! I think it is 'cause he's sleeping!" S. H., Mother of GA. State Wrestling Champion. (purchased Ultimate Sleep)

C., IN, Dancer
