There is a long history of hypnosis in sport proving how athletic performance can be increased dramatically in many areas, style correction, speed and strength enhancements are particularly effective.
Most Champions use some form of hypnosis whether it's visualisation or affirmation and many seek the help of a professional hypnotist or sports psychologist to assist in their mental training.
In the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, the Russian Olympic Team took no less than 11 hypnotists to develop mental clarity and help the athletes with visualisation. Out of 20 Australian swimmers named in the 1980 Olympic team 12 used hypnosis.
In the 1978/79 tour of Australia, England cricket captain Mike Brearley consulted a hypnotherapist to improve his game.
Tiger Woods has used a hypnotherapist from the age of 13 and also employed him as his caddy for 5 years.
