Hypnosis continues to lead the way as the best way to help people involved in sport achieve their true potential. Using hypnosis within the realms of sports performance can have truly remarkable results in whichever discipline you wish to improve.
Most people would agree that a good part of excelling in any sporting activity is down to physical ability. Some sports require great physical strength, whereas some sports are more agility based, and others require endurance and stamina. Either way, the human physique is being used to achieve certain tasks and all of these activities require muscular movement.
Muscular movements are controlled by the brain, and more specifically, the subconscious mind is responsible for the actual movement. For example, when we hit a ball with a tennis racquet we make a conscious decision to hit the ball, but our subconscious mind is the actual part that does the "hitting". If you think about it, how on earth would we be able to hit the ball otherwise?
The actual movement of hitting the ball required millions of nerve impulses to fire and stimulate our muscles to move. Within fractions of a second our subconscious mind processes sensory information (like how long before the ball reaches us, where will the ball be when it reaches us) and also processes information like how hard we need to hold the racquet so it doesn't fly out of our hands when we hit the ball the list it quite literally endless.
People excel at sports because they train. It is generally understood that if you train at anything practising the activity over and over again you will improve.
Improving your training with hypnotherapy is in fact programming the subconscious mind; it is teaching subconscious mind how to do something. In the process of training, the subconscious mind learns what works and what doesn't, and as we work at our sport more and more, we improve because the subconscious mind's programmes improve: we learn how to hit a tennis ball harder and more accurately, we learn to lift weights with correct form and posture, we learn how to run very fast and jumped over hurdles.
Because so much of sports performance is due to the subconscious mind, months or even years of training can be bypassed by using hypnosis to teach the unconscious mind new things that will be beneficial to increasing performance in any particular sport. This teaching would occur over time naturally, with months or years of training, but why wait?
The mind is so important in sports performance that top professional wouldn't even consider dismissing this fact. Indeed throughout history, many top athletes and sports professionals have used hypnosis in order to gain the edge they need to win.
Sporting legend Ken Norton had used hypnosis before his famous victory against Muhammad Ali in March, September 1976: a fight in which Norton broke Ali's jaw.
National League batting champion Bill Buckner used hypnosis in 1982 to get out of a batting slump and went from .278 to .405 later that season.
Tiger Woods has been quoted in the August 2001 issue of Golf Magazine saying, "I always have an inner peace on the golf course. I've learned to trust the subconscious, and my instincts have never lied to me."
