How the Treatment Works
Our treatment focuses on the direct relationship between the major organ systems and inappropriate reactions to harmless substances. While the immune system is responsible for initiating an immune reaction in the case of true allergies, it is the health and state of the organ systems that often determines the type of symptoms that may arise.
With both sensitivities and allergies, symptoms typically stem from the organ system affected. For example, a reaction to wheat may cause hives in one person, digestive issues in another, fatigue, wheezing or acid reflux in yet another. The symptoms in each of these cases involve a different organ system. By treating the organ system(s) involved in a reaction, the body is able to respond more appropriately.
During treatment, gentle pressure is used on points that correspond with the organ systems involved in a reaction. The treatment points are located along the spine and correspond with the location of the Sympathetic chain which deals with "fight or flight” responses. While the stimulation is applied, a subtle representation of the offending substance is introduced to the surface of the skin. The stimulation reduces the stress on the effected organ system. By treating reactive organ systems via these points in relation to an offending substance, a defensive state may be altered, allowing for a more healthy response.
All holistic fields of medicine are aligned in the approach to treat the whole body. They share the understanding that health conditions may develop as a result of interference in proper functioning caused by various forms of stress or other factors. Reducing the stress or interference allows for optimal health. When the specific organ system is supported and stress is reduced, the whole body is able to respond more appropriately.
AAT does not cure allergies, nor does the therapy treat the immune system. AAT is a highly effective treatment that provides long-term relief from symptoms associated with allergies or sensitivities.
AAT does not treat cases of anaphylaxis or life threatening symptoms. Strict avoidance is always advised in these cases.
