Hypnosis for sports is a growing industry, yet most athletes are not aware of what it can do for their performances.
Here are just a few ways in which hypnosis can be used to make dramatic improvements, especially when used in conjunction with other change techniques like NLP:
– Overcoming slumps
– Dealing with pressures from family, significant others, or the media
– Overcoming a “sticking point” in practice
– Calming down a reckless athlete in order to be more “coachable”
– Overcoming the fear of the pressures of the playoffs or championship
– Releasing negative feelings from mistakes and create an ability to refocus on the game
– Overcoming the negative emotions from past failures
Learn how Dave used sports hypnosis to learn to let go of errors and refocus on his game:
– Faster reaction time for techniques (such as a baseball hitter increasing his reaction time to a slider)
– Helping a team’s natural leader increase his or her leadership skills
– Increasing strength and speed with visualizations done under a hypnotic trance
– Taking the emotions of past successes and applying them to future scenarios such as upcoming tryouts, championships, or scouting combines
– Improving the odds that a newly-learned skill will become an ingrained habit through mental repetition under hypnotic trance.
As you can see, sports hypnosis can be used in a number of ways. Whether it is to overcome fears and emotional traumas or improving positive traits, sports hypnosis is a flexible tool. And it is one which you should consider studying as athletes progress in the future.
