Visualization is often used to imagine the desired result. For instance,a baseball player will visualize the perfect swing, seeing all of his muscles, each minor movement and adjustment as the bat hits the ball. By visualizing repeatedly these perfect movements, the body will be able to accomplish just that during competition. Self-statements and self-hypnosis cement the goals and desired results in the mind of the athlete and therefore, become unconscious actions during competition or games.
Hypnotherapy can also help improve focus and concentration and relieve the stress of competition and pressure of performance.
