Could hypnosis really help you become a better poker player?
When you become aware of all the great things that have been achieved with the power of hypnosis, you have to answer 'Yes' to this question. Definitely yes.
It's now a proven fact that hypnosis and simply changing your frame of mind can help you lose weight, quit smoking and overcome many other challenges.
To quote Matt Damon, poker playing star of the movie 'Rounders', "I should have done it years ago. It's amazing I didn't even want cigarettes anymore," describing his hypnosis experience to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show in 2004.
As far back as 1956, many European and Eastern Bloc Olympic teams traveled with hypnotherapists, and after the L. A. Lakers winning game against the Sacramento Kings in 2002, Coach Phil Jackson credited their morning practice of self-hypnosis, meditation, and visualization with giving the Lakers the belief that they could win.
Hypnosis is also now widely accepted in golf with many of the top professionals using it to improve their game. Golf Digest magazine says Tiger Woods undergoes extensive mental training including hypnosis.
In fact thousands of sports stars have successfully used hypnosis to become champions in their field and there is no reason why poker players should not benefit from these techniques to improve their game too. As so much of poker is about strength of mind, it could be said it is the perfect arena for hypnosis.
If you have never been hypnotized before, your complete understanding of hypnosis is helpful. When you learn the facts, you will know that hypnosis is a very safe and natural state of mind that will allow you to easily improve your poker game.
Q. What is hypnosis? How is it useful?
A. Hypnosis is a state of altered awareness with heightened suggestibility. Your body is relaxed, your mind is very alert and aware, but you are more open to accepting new thoughts and feelings. Most of us move in and out of these states several times a day--while driving a car, watching television, or listening to music.
Q. What does hypnosis feel like? Will it freak me out? I'm a little scared and also a little nervous.
A. What you will experience is deep relaxation. The only thing that happens is that your body will relax, which enables your mind to be more open. You are NOT asleep, in a trance, unconscious, or out of control. It is not uncommon for you to hear a passing car, a dog barking in the distance, a plane passing overhead, or any other outside sounds of everyday life. You will have a more intense awareness of your surroundings. If you need or want to open your eyes at any time, you will be able to.
Q. How do I know if I am hypnotized?
A. When you are hypnotized, you will feel very relaxed, but you are always awake and in control. Your conscious mind may be distracted, or your thoughts may wander, but your subconscious mind is open and remains receptive to the suggestions of the Hypnotherapist.
Q. Will I lose control when I go into hypnosis?
A. Emphatically NO! You are in as much control as you are right now. You will not do anything in hypnosis that you would not do normally. No hypnotist can make you do anything against your will.
Q. Is being hypnotized the sign of a weak mind?
A. No, just the opposite is true. The more intelligent and imaginative you are, the better subject you will be.
Q. What if I cannot be hypnotized?
A. Any normal person can be hypnotized, about 95% of all people can be. Anyone 6 years of age or older, who is willing to be hypnotized and desires the results it can bring will make an easy subject. The only exceptions are those whose mental capacities have diminished to the point where they are quite unable to focus their concentration.

You spend many hours playing the game that you love. You love to win, but you don't win enough and you hate it when lady luck deals you a bad beat. It happens to everyone, but does it affect your game? Does it make you lose your confidence, concentration and self control? When you make a bad read on another player, does it make you angry when you lose your money? Does it throw you off your game? Hypnosis can help you improve any area of your poker game.
Poker is all about making decisions. Making the right decisions will help you win. Making the right decisions will help you avoid big losses. In order to win consistently, you must make the right decisions most of the time. Hypnosis can help you make the right decisions.
Lack of confidence, loss of concentration and self-control are the biggest challenges poker players face when they sit down at the poker table. It doesn't matter if you're playing at the World Series of Poker Main Event, the World Poker Tour, or at home with your buddies – poker, like golf, is 90% mental.
The top poker players in the world have confidence. They are able to stay focused for long periods of time and maintain a high level of concentration. They do things instinctively, have great memories and self-control. Hypnosis can help you improve these areas of your game. You will also increase your attention, focus and memory as well as gain complete control over both your conscious and subconscious emotions. Poker players are constantly giving away cues, no matter how much effort is made to resist these "tells". Hypnosis can help you control your unconscious emotions and sharpen your instincts making you more aware of the cues that the other players reveal. This will give you a great advantage!
Hypnosis will help you master the mind game of poker. Hypnosis is one of the best tools to retrain the brain to remain calm in stressful situations, eliminate unconscious behaviors, and improve focus and concentration. Professional poker players understand the mind/body connection and how it affects their results. They know poker strategy, cards, and luck are only part of the equation. Poker Pros know they need to keep their head in the game to win big. Hypnosis is the fastest easiest way to gain the mental edge and create positive changes at the poker table.
Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation. It allows your brain to respond to stressful situations in a more positive way with new types of behavior patterns. It's all done naturally and automatically. If hypnosis can enhance the performance of professional athletes, why would Texas Hold'em be any different?
Relaxation is the key factor with hypnosis, and I have found that familiar surrounding are much more favorable to creating such an atmosphere and will bring about a relaxation response from my clients more easily.
