Hibiscus Hypnosis
Improving Athletic Performance

Our bodies and minds are intimately connected, and perhaps nowhere is this so clearly evident as in physical activities and sports. Your focus and clarity of mind can have a tremendous influence on the quality of your performance.

Achieving Your Peak Ability

Professional athletes and amateur sports enthusiasts alike recognize what they refer to as getting "in the zone," that feeling of being at the peak of one's ability, when movement seems to become fluid and smooth, and for some, even euphoric. Many top athletes, intuitively understanding this linking of the body and the mind, routinely combine physical training with mental conditioning so that they can perform at their very best.

In order to excel at whatever type or level of activity you enjoy, it is important to sharpen your mental concentration and to avoid distractions, whether they be from the outside or from within your own mind.

How Can Hypnosis Help?

In hypnosis, a person learns to vividly rehearse their chosen activity in their mind, and studies have shown that the muscles do indeed respond to this mental activity. Skill, concentration, balance, coordination, and flexibility are all integrated together within the mind and physical improvement is enhanced as well. As an added bonus, this mental concentration aids in quieting distractions, resulting in a higher level of performance.

Session One
Learn the skill of self hypnosis, and begin to concentrate more deeply on the movements you wish to improve, focusing on both the large overall motions as well as the smaller details.

Session Two
Clear your mind, diminishing the effect of any thoughts or feelings of inadequacy or limitation, which can only undermine your efforts. Focus instead on the thoughts and feelings that stimulate and enhance your self confidence and ability to perform.
