Effective visualization is a vitally important part of athletic and sporting success.
This process of mental rehearsal prepares the mind and body to perform in perfect coordination to achieve a clearly identified objective.
Many athletic training programs, taking into consideration the complex interrelationship of the mind and the body, include “mental training” to reduce the negative effects of excess stress.
Hypnosis is a fast, effective and side effect free way of achieving these objectives.
The reason for this is that the subconscious cannot tell the difference between reality and what we are imagining; as far as the subconscious is concerned, it’s all real.
So, mentally rehearsing, for example a golfer imagining his or her swing, the perfect striking of the ball, the trajectory of the ball towards the flag, is equivalent to making a perfect shot in real practice. The subconscious is learning and refining what it has to do at the level below conscious awareness to bring all parts of the mind and body into perfect coordination when called upon.
Hypnosis is the perfect tool to achieve this.
Using hypnosis, a skilled hypnotherapist can take an athlete or sports person through a process of guided imagery that can rapidly and consistently improve actual performance.
In addition, hypnosis, along with easily taught self hypnosis skills, can significantly reduce pre-event stress, thus creating optimum conditions for athletic and sporting excellence.
