Experience alfa state is indispensable to sportsmen for energy recovery and be- comes a way to reduce the level of stress. Reaching high level of alpha state is essential for further sportsman’s mental work connected with stimulation of development during competitions.The purpose of the study: Evaluation of the effect of audiovisual brain relaxation and auto- genic training 011 generation of alpha waves in sportsmen.Material: 15-year old swimmers (28 persons) were selected for the investigations. In experimental group (14 persons), audiovisual brain relaxation and autogenic training were used for 10 months.Methods: Freeze-Framer emwave PC (stress relief system) and EEG.Results: The investigated group showed progression in relaxation level, alpha waves ainplimdes and performance of sport-related tasks. This proves positive impact of regular audiovisual brain relaxation and autogenic training on behavior. Progressive changes in sportsman’s body are reflected in objective relaxation indexes and brain electroencephalography. Psychosomatic recovery training should be therefore applied after each sport activity.
