this article by Dr Miriam Wohl explains why AT is
recommended in sports medicine.
AT is as much about the mind as it is the body. Learning AT can help with performance anxiety, concentration & thinking quickly on your feet.

You can learn to embrace the changes in your life & approach your new activities with the same mental discipline, enjoyment & attention to quality as you have done in your sporting career.
