Sports Hypnotherapy for Athletes: Visualize and Achieve Success

Optimal performance in sports and athletics requires rigorous physical training but also a great deal of mental discipline. At Miami Hypnosis and Therapy, we offer sports hypnotherapy for athletes who want to harness the power of their thoughts and achieve their full athletic potential. Discover how our supportive treatment can give you the tools you need to meet your goals.


How Does Sports Performance Hypnotherapy Work?

A strong mind-body relationship is essential for any athlete. Muscle memory—one of the most powerful tools in athletic performance—is governed by the unconscious mind. It allows you to focus all of your attention on strategy and your surroundings instead of kicking a ball or defending an attack. Muscle memory can be positively influenced using sports hypnotherapy in a number of ways.

What Hypnotherapy Doesn’t Do:

  • Magically enhance your performance through commands or “mind control”

What Hypnotherapy Does Do:

  • Strengthens unconscious mental processes
  • Provides long-term mental strength and determination during challenging, intense competitive situations

What Does Hypnotherapy for Athletic Performance Look Like?

The supportive practice of sports performance hypnotherapy instills productive change using positive suggestions. During a session, the athlete is led into a state of intense focus and alertness. They are guided by a licensed mental health professional as they visualize themselves completing feats of strength and agility with ease. While in this state, sports hypnotherapy allows the therapist to access subconscious muscle memory and enhances it using suggested images, which can then translate more easily into real-life performance.
