My first ever hypnotherapy experience was with Matt Walker-Wilson. I have been practicing martial arts for 20 years and I was always interested in meditation, breathing, relaxation etc. My present and most important aim is to overcome sports injuries without surgery and become a top athlete in Karate and Obstacle Racing.
I was a bit nervous at the beginning but Matt’s friendly approach made the atmosphere relaxed. So we had 2 mediation stages within the first session. The first hypnosis was good but the second one was excellent! Maybe because I was not nervous any more. I went into a very deep hypnotic trance. My body relaxed like I could never relax it when I meditate alone. So did my mind. Visualization of my desired outcomes was so much easier with his instructions. Even days later I can see myself performing brilliantly! It has definitely improved my performance in my sport of Karate and in my work as a personal trainer.
After only 2 days, I booked another session with Matt. Normally it takes me up to 1 week maybe more to decide whether I really need the service or product. But in this case I know that what I will do with Matt will change my thoughts, which in turn change my performance. We are now 3 or 4 sessions into the therapy and things are really starting to change. Besides being more productive and less tired, my injuries are becoming less and less painful. My mind is starting to accept that my body is capable of healing itself.
