Mike Tyson, Hypnotherapy and Improving Sports Performance


Hypnosis has been increasingly used in sport during the past 50 years and has recently seen an upsurge in interest from the sports research industry as well as sports participants. 

Hypnosis to improve sports performanceCountless famous  sports personalities have used hypnosis in the past, including boxers Ken Norton, Frank Bruno, Steve Collins and Nigel Benn, former England cricket captain Mike Brearley, athlete Iwan Thomas, and golfers Tiger Woods and Ian Woosnam.

To that list you can now add Mike Tyson who recently spoke to the Daily Telegraph about how Cus D'Amato, Tyson's  legendary trainer, insisted he had daily sessions of hypnotherapy to improve his ferocity and his concentration.



Mike Tyson was one of the most intimidatory boxers of all time, renowned for getting his fights finished quickly. His first 19 fights all finished by KO and he quickly established such a fearsome profile that his opponents appeared terrified before the fight started.   

Hypnosis for sports performanceMike Tyson now attributes the ferocity of his fights to a hypnotist, who he worked with several times a day at the request of his manager Cus D'Amato.

He tells the Daily Telegraph, "Cus used to have me professionally hypnotised two or three times a day - before sparring, before training and before fights. My objective was to destroy."
