Sports performance at a high level requires an intensive, relaxed concentration which has much in common with the hypnotic state itself. High level performers are observed to go into active trance-like states when performing at their best, often called being “in the flow” or “in the zone”. Hypnosis teaches the athlete to achieve this state, even in highly competitive and stressful situations.z
Through the mastery of stress by hypnotic methods, the athlete can release their potential for greater achievement. Concentration, relaxation, self-belief, drawing more effectively on the great mental and physical resources possessed by human beings, being able to hold to a powerful mental image of success, are part of the hypnotic training of athletes.
