Hypnosis for Sports and Performance


Playing golf, football, dancing… whatever sports you play or physical activities you perform, your mental game is just as important as your physical one.

Tiger Woods and his father knew about this mind-body connection. His father Earl Woods had Tiger hypnotized before playing golf so he could achieve peak performance for every shot.

You know what’s it like when you enter the zone.

What would change for you if every time you stepped onto the course, court, field, or stage, you immediately entered the zone and played or performed at your best?

With hypnosis, you can get into the zone more often and reach that peak performance state you want to be in.

It can even be used for you to block out distractions whether it’s the cheering crowd or bright stage lights.

Sports Hypnosis

Sports hypnosis offers more than just getting into the zone, though.

Mental rehearsal has been shown to be very effective in improving performance.

There are stories of a World War II POW improving his golf game without playing for years, as well as basketball players who mentally rehearsed free throws and performed nearly as well as their peers who practiced for real.

In hypnosis, visualization and mental rehearsal can be more effective. And if you’ve ever had a dream that covered days or weeks, in hypnosis you can visualize yourself playing through 18 holes of golf in minutes or less.

Hypnosis For Performance Anxiety

It won’t surprise anyone that sports and performing can be stressful.

You might be competing in a tournament, have a big game, or be at an audition for a dance company.

When everything is on the line, the last thing you want is to have your performance hurt because you’re feeling too much stress, nerves, tension, or anxiety.

Your nerves don’t have to hold you (or the young athlete in your house) back.

Hypnosis can help you transform your stress into energy that helps you perform better instead of holding you back.

Hypnosis for Pain and Endurance

When you’re out there playing, or if you’re a dancer dancing, you might have aches and pains that hold you back from performing at your best.

You might be cleared by a physician to play at your fullest, but those pains might still be there causing you discomfort when you move. We can use hypnosis so the pains keep you in the zone instead of pulling you out of it.

Additionally, hypnosis can help you push past the “wall.” Our bodies will prematurely tell us that it’s time to slow down even when we still have energy left.

These mental barriers can prevent you from performing at your fullest.

Improve Your Game with Hypnosis For Sports and Performance

When you hire Mark Reagan to improve your performance, you (or your teenage athlete/dancer) can see significant results.

While Mark will tailor each session toward your individual goals, in general you can expect to:

Be in “the zone” more often.

Gain confidence in your abilities.  

Overcome performance anxiety and stress.

Learn self-hypnosis to enhance the visualization techniques you already know (and more).

Block out distractions and minor aches and pains.

And more.

Sports Hypnosis Sessions

Sessions for sports hypnosis may be done 1-on-1, and group sessions are available as well. Sessions are typically 60 minutes in length.

Mark may be hired either for limited sessions to resolve a block, or a larger package of sessions may be purchased for ongoing support and improvement.

Hypnosis can help you play and perform better.
