It's no secret that sports men and women often incorporate imagery and mental rehearsal into their practice routines. What is less well known is how effective hypnosis can be in this process. When hypnotised you will be able to imagine yourself rehearsing and refining the perfect swing, the perfect goal or running the perfect mile.
Since the subconscious mind is really the driving force between most of our beliefs and behaviour, it makes sense that a technique which elicits change at the subconscious level can be highly effective. Hypnosis is such a technique. Hypnosis can help an athlete overcome issues of self-doubt which may be keeping him from moving to the next level, or it can help them stay focused.
Sporting legends such as Tiger Woods, regularly use hypnosis to get into a state of mind where they are in complete control.
