Try this exercise to get a basic idea of how hypnotherapy works in sports performance. This is a motionless exercise. Stand with your legs apart and your knees slightly bent as if you were sitting up straight on an imaginary chair. Place your arms in front of you as if you were embracing a tree. Hold for 60 seconds. Tough, right? Try the exercise again, only this time while watching TV. You may notice that it is easier. This is because you have distracted yourself form the discomfort -- and that is essentially how hypnosis works to increase an athlete's performance level as well!
