The South Australian Society of Hypnosis (SASH)
Hypnosis is a special state of focused attention used to enhance positive changes in mind and body.
The South Australian Society of Hypnosis is the only professional hypnosis society in South Australia. Its members are qualified health care practitioners, including dentists, doctors of medicine, midwives, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists and social workers.
These therapists apply the phenomena of hypnosis to achieving often spectacular results within their own professional fields and, using their specialised skills in this field, are able to provide the public with this most powerful adjunct to treatment.
Hypnosis is a process used in clinical work during which a person experiences an altered state of attention or degree of awareness. Alterations in perception, which occur when a person becomes absorbed to such a degree that his/her usual responses to stimuli are altered, are utilised to find and amplify people’s resources to enable them to overcome difficulties or to handle challenges in their lives.
Studies have demonstrated that hypnosis/hypnotherapy enhances the efficacy of many of the therapeutic interventions used by health care practitioners.
