How It Works

A healthy family is sacred territory

Do you ever wonder why you continually feel tired or frequently seem irritable?

Why you are constantly coughing, sneezing or wheezing?

What about stomach cramping and bloating?

Ever have itchy skin rashes or watery eyes?

Persistent nausea or consistent mood swings?

Occasional migraine headaches, heartburn, acid reflux, sinus congestion or post nasal drip?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, there’s a good chance you are sensitive or allergic to a food or liquid you consumed, substance or material you touched, or scent or vapor you breathed.

And, it’s an excellent reason to contact the Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center and make an appointment for an assessment — and treatment — with Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT).

Used extensively throughout the world, particularly Europe and Asia, AAT is a clinically proven treatment that merges 21st century-science with more than 3,000-year-old acupuncture principles in offering a non-invasive, needle-free, no-medication, no-supplement, non-herbal therapy in the treatment of reactions or symptoms associated with many allergies and sensitivities … more than 300,000 allergies and sensitivities.

Like acupuncture, AAT is a precision-based treatment that emphasizes a “whole body” approach to achieving better health and living a better life. It does not treat the immune system; it, instead, targets organ systems that are involved in an “overreaction” to a particular substance and focuses on the relationship between the symptoms and systems to produce quick, long-lasting relief.

An overreaction (i.e., allergy or sensitivity) to an otherwise harmless component typically found in something that you eat, drink, smell or handle.

Unlike traditional or customary testing and treatment of allergies and sensitivities, however, which can involve painful or uncomfortable scratch tests and injections, AAT replaces these procedures with a laptop computer and software that, together, are making relief possible and painless for many people for the first time in their lives.

The computer is connected to a “cuff” (similar to a blood pressure monitor) that is lightly wrapped around the bicep or forearm areas of either the left or right arm. After the cuff is attached, AAT is able to detect or assess sensitivities or allergies to an extensive and expansive range of substances, such as certain foods, beverages and their multitude of naturally occurring or artificially added components or ingredients; molds; pollens; animals; insects; dust; dairy products; wheat; vitamins; and a wide variety of contactants of various types or kinds.

These same devices are then used along with a ‘percussor,’ which activates or applies an acupressure technique or procedure along the spine to help “reduce” or “resolve” symptoms related to a particular sensitivity or allergy.

AAT sessions typically take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete and most clients feel or obtain noticeable, sometimes significant, relief within the first several treatments, depending on the source or cause of their symptoms.

A case in point is a patient named Frances who, for most of her adult life, suffered from recurring sinus congestion, frequent watery eyes, and accompanying headaches.

Another is her husband, Tom, who experienced occasional digestive problems, including stomach aches and cramps.

And, Kristin, who had to stop eating pineapple due to the swelling or inflammation that it produced throughout her body, including her throat.

Now, after treatments using Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, which helped Frances with allergies to numerous tree pollens and weeds, her sinus problems and accompanying headaches have completely cleared and no longer are problems.

In Tom’s case, AAT was able to successfully treat stomach troubles that involved allergic reactions to dairy foods, beyond an intolerance or inability to digest lactose, and to wheat, besides a sensitivity to gluten, which was not a problem for him.

The same is true for Kristin who, after 10 years of avoiding pineapple, was able to eat the fruit once again … after only three AAT treatments.

It’s important to note that Advanced Allergy Therapeutics is not used at the center to treat cases of anaphylaxis or life threatening symptoms or reactions to substances. In such instances, strict avoidance of the substance always is strongly advised.
