Excelling in any sport requires not only talent, but the ability to visualize. Sports hypnosis is a form of sports psychology that involves the mind/body connection. The belief is that in order to have the competitive edge, the athlete not only must physically gifted and talented, but be able to predict their opponents next move before they even act. This is where hypnosis comes into play.
The unique ability of hypnosis to put athletes into a trances gives athletes the competitive edge. Once a person is willingly placed in an hypnotic state, they are able to recreate their participation in their particular sport with superior clarity. In most cases, the mind is so clear, that the participant literally feels as they are truly playing their chosen sport. The result is faster reaction times, increased practices,and the ability to perform at a higher caliber.
