Using Basketball Hypnosis to Improve the NBA Philadelphia 76ers.
“The Philadelphia 76ers set a franchise record by losing their 21st consecutive game when they fell to the Pacers 99-90 in Indiana on Monday,” says Todd Stofka, Sports Hypnotist. We all learn via repetition and 21 straight losses is a lot of game time wiring the mindset of being a losing team.
The Sixers need to break this trance. When Stofka has worked with teams in this situation there are two things that need to be done. 1. Free up the individual players so they can have fun and play good ball. 2. Reunite the team to play as one by getting rid of the blame.
Basketball Sports Psychology Hypnosis is designed to address player’s issues such as:
• Loss or Lack of Confidence
• Managing Mistakes, Errors and Missed Shots
• Anxiety, Tension, Self-Doubt Before and During a Game
• Fear of Choking at the Line
• Battling with the Shooting Yips
• Becoming Overwhelmed by Pressure
• Trouble “Getting into The Zone and Staying in The Zone”
• Consistency Problems
Recently Stofka described working with a College Basketball team. They were struggling with free-throw accuracy. He took seven of the team members and had them make 50 free throws to get a baseline. He then customized a mental training hypnosis for them and had them shoot another 50 free throws and tabulated the difference between the before and after hypnosis. Their overall percentage of completed free throws had increased by 8% from 73% to 81%. The best improvement was 25%. This all took place after a 2½ hr. practice. He created one audio for use off the court.
In their next few game, their field goal percentage improved by 15%. In the following game, the participating players again made 87.5% of their free throws.
Michael Jordan said it best,
“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
Basketball Sports Hypnosis can easily turn around the NBA Philadelphia 76ers along with any College or High School Team.
