Muhammad Ali, the famous boxer has said – “Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.” For a lot of athletes, it is extremely difficult to unlock this dream, this desire, this will to win completely. This is where sports hypnosis can help them.
Sports hypnosis is when hypnosis or hypnotherapy is used in the sports context. This is the old and proven branch of hypnotherapy being used in a novel way to help sports people dig deep and achieve their goals. Hypnosis is not about mind control or brain washing. People who are hypnotized are not asleep or unconscious. In fact, they are completely aware of what is going on around them and completely in control of themselves. They can even come out of the hypnotic state whenever they want to. When they are hypnotized, they are in a state of highly focused attention. At this stage, they are susceptible to suggestions. Sports Hypnosis Glasgow takes advantage of this heightened state to help athletes relax, reinforce their goals and increase their motivation. For people with recurring pain, sports hypnosis can help temporarily disregard it.
The best advantage that sports hypnosis Scotland provides is the ability to increase concentration and focus on what the athlete wants. Competition is both a physical as well as a mental game. If a competitor is not completely focused on his target, it can prove to be extremely costly. Sports hypnosis can help sharpen all senses before, during and after competitions. Keeping a positive frame of mind, free of any thoughts of losing or the consequences of not winning can mean the difference between disappointment or glory.
