Hypnosis is a proven technique for improving sports performance for children and adults of all ages. It can also be used to overcome sports-related fears, such as the fear of being hit by the ball, or the fear of being mocked by teammates for making a mistake.

How does hypnosis work for sports improvement?

If a person has a sports-related fear, hypnosis is used to uncover and neutralize the underlying issue (just as with any other fear). For sports improvement, hypnosis is used to help athletes “relive” past performances, identify areas of improvement, and then envision themselves succeeding in future events in an ideal way. In this case, hypnosis is actually a very strong and powerful form of exercise that involves muscle memory, confidence, and achievement. Numerous studies of the use of hypnosis for professional athletes have proven the effectiveness of these techniques.
