Sports Performance


Serious Athletes are often determined to find anything that will give them an edge over their competition, as well as help them perform optimally. Hypnosis and imagery have been utilized by many such athletes to improve their game. Hypnosis is actually a legitimate form of treatment which has proven to be effective in bringing about positive change through mind focus, developing new habits and behaviours, and releasing unhealthy or unproductive emotions, habits and behaviours. Many well-known athletes have worked with highly trained hypnotherapists to achieve significant gains in their personal performance, regardless of their sport.

Since the unconscious mind is really the driving force between most of our beliefs and behaviours, Hypnosis makes perfect sense as it is a powerful technique which elicits change at the unconscious level which can be highly effective. Hypnosis is such a game changing technique with huge benefits for all sports men and women.

Although Western science and thought has tended to treat the mind and body as two separate entities, advances in neuroscience and neuropsychology have shown that the two are inextricably linked. Mind and body are in constant communication, with a flow of neurotransmitters from the brain to the cells of the body and back again. The mind tells the body how to behave, but the body can tell the mind how to think and feel too. This is the key to elevating you to your personal best in any sphere.

This has profound implications for sports performance, of course, as hypnosis can be used to encourage the right sort of messages to be transmitted from the mind to the body – if you are looking for the edge in sport get in touch with your nearest Advance Hypnosis Clinic.
