Sports Performance Enhancement

running for success


It’s all about getting the edge these days in sports.  Athletes train vigorously to win the competition especially for the Olympics.

The history of using hypnosis in sports more recently began in Melbourne at the 1956 Olympics.  Eleven hypnotists accompanied the Russian athletes to domination and victory over the other teams.   The athletes rehearsed mentally winning their sets and then went on to win many gold medals and began years of victories before the West caught on.

After the Western and American athletes began using hypnosis they too began capturing the winning spots with the gold.  In 1984 the 16 year old Mary Lou Retton used self-hypnosis every day to prepare herself for the Olympics.  She was indeed going forward doing well until the final day she injured her foot.  Using the power of self-hypnosis to block the pain she went on to compete and actually won the gold.  This was in spite of her injury against all odds.

There are so many other examples of using hypnosis to achieve goals in sports.  Just taking advantage of the mental powers that are just sitting there waiting to be accessed is no longer just for Olympic athletes.

You can improve your edge in any sport, work out your deficits, improve your swing, gain more self-confidence and get a clear unshakeable focus through hypnosis.  It’s not “hocus-pocus” anymore.  It’s a real tool for real athletes to take advantage of.  It resides within you and won’t get you kicked out of the Olympics or sports associations like performance enhancing drugs.
