Mentally rehearsing the play before a game is not a new idea, but subconsciously playing the game and already seeing it won while in hypnosis is a novel and profound one.
Many top athletes psyche themselves up by using deep relaxation and visualisation methods.
A casual reading of current sports magazines will give an idea of how therapeutic techniques are being applied by players in all sport.
For example, some professional teams who have hypno-therapeutic tapes in their mood rooms not only use hypnosis for motivation but also for revitalising their physical bodies.
Such recordings help ease their physical aches as well as instil psychological wellbeing and enthusiasm.
The greatest enemy for any athlete is fear: fear of losing, fear of winning, fear of pain and injury, or fear of humiliation in public.
Some athletes who play well during practice will freeze up during a game while under scrutiny from others. This pressure can often inhibit a good performance.
To perform well, an athlete must be relaxed enough to allow natural timing and coordination to flow with the movement of the game.
