Hypnosis for sports performance can help athletes alleviate performance anxiety, reach new goals, and overcome debilitating psychological obstacles. Plenty of athletes find hypnosis to be effective in helping to address negative patterns that get in the way of a successful outcome.

Professional athletes such as Mike Tyson and Michael Jordan have incorporated hypnosis into their training and pre-game routines to enhance their focus and mental stamina.

Why Use Hypnosis to Improve Sports Performance?

Hypnosis is an incredibly powerful tool backed by hundreds of years of research and case studies. It can be applied in a wide variety of applications, and is especially effective in helping athletes to achieve their goals. Many people involved in fitness competitions, sports teams, and generally staying active turn to hypnotherapy in order to:

  • Alleviate performance anxiety
  • Reduce stress before, during, and after a game
  • Improve concentration
  • Reduce recovery time
  • Build and reinforce confidence
  • Better understand their strengths and weaknesses
  • Explore their own potential
  • Get better sleep

Of course, this is just a sample of reasons to use hypnosis. Many athletes choose hypnotherapy as a means for improving their form and technique. After all, all forms of physical activity require a strong mind-body connection in order to be mastered. Hypnosis helps to strengthen that connection and hone our athletic skills and abilities.

Using hypnosis and self-hypnosis, you’ll learn how to better deal with the stress that comes with playing sports and working out. Beyond that, hypnosis helps with feeling good on a day-to-day basis, not just on the field. A regular hypnosis practice will get you more comfortable with trusting your instincts and making your next move with confidence.

How Does Hypnosis Help Athletes?

Your own subconscious mind is your most effective tool for change. For the most part, this is a part of the brain that we have minimal access to. In our society, we’ve gotten so used to using the thinking mind that we’ve lost our natural ability to tap into the conscious mind. Hypnosis allows the user to bypass this limitation in order to communicate with the subconscious mind. From there, various methods such as imagery and breathwork are used in order to embody the desired goal. It is in creating the hypnosis suggestion and then using methods like visualizing or breathing techniques that the subconscious creates the new brain ‘rule’.

Hypnosis is a unique form of treatment in that it can be tailored to the needs of the user. During hypnosis and self-hypnosis, a variation of tone, volume and inflection can be used in order to achieve certain outcomes. For example, if the athlete wishes to remain calm during a game, they might choose to use a soft, whispering voice during self-hypnosis.  In a sense, hypnosis allows the user to guide themselves towards the desired result.

Self-directed neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to change itself through thought, plays a major role in hypnosis. The process of changing your own brain can be challenging, and often there are obstacles that come up along the way. Hypnosis offers a pathway to using self-directed neuroplasticity in a way that works and is tailored to your own needs. Using hypnosis, you’ll find that your goals are more achievable than you’d previously thought!

Hypnosis for Sports Performance Anxiety

Anxiety can be excruciatingly debilitating when it comes to playing sports. Athletes such as Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka have experienced hiccups in their career after anxiety-related episodes. NBA player Kevin Love became an outspoken advocate for mental health after suffering with anxiety for 29 years. Many people who play sports, professionals included, report fears and anxieties such as:

  • Underperforming
  • Freezing up
  • Not being able to remember a play, sign or signal
  • Making a mistake
  • Disappointing teammates, coaches, or fans
  • Enochlophobia (Fear of crowds)

Hypnosis can help to alleviate the pressure and high-energy atmosphere of playing sports. There is no type of anxiety, sports-related or not, that hypnosis cannot help to treat the issues relating to. There are also no side effects associated with hypnotherapy, and it can be administered alongside medication, therapy, etc. In fact, hypnosis works quite well when used in tandem with other treatment methods.

Using hypnosis, you’ll learn how to overcome mental roadblocks and obstacles. You’ll get in touch with the power and potential that lies within your own mind. Finally get relief from sports-related anxiety and approach your games with a clearer, more focused mind.

Sometimes clients will feel an instantaneous improvement, while others report a more gradual transition. Keep in mind that every session will make an effect, but there is no need for ongoing treatment as hypnosis is not a long-term therapy.

For the best results, you might choose to define measurable goals, avoiding the use of terms like ‘good’ or ‘better’. For example, ‘I want to improve my running speed by 12% for my next meet’.

Anyone who is willing can participate in hypnosis. There is no such thing as a person who cannot be hypnotized. Hypnosis is an ancient technique that transcends the client’s level of intelligence, financial standing, lifestyle, etc. If a person can understand language, they can be hypnotized…we’re all already hypnotizing ourselves.
