Advanced Allergy Therapeutics


Schulhof Animal Hospital is excited to now be able to offer cutting edge AAT Therapy to its patients who suffer from a variety of skin, respiratory, digestive, and even behavioral issues associated with environmental and autoimmune sensitivities.


Developed from over 16 years of clinical research, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) is a non-invasive, unique and highly effective approach in treating the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities in both humans and animals. Merging 21st century science with the knowledge and principles of 3,000-year- old traditional acupuncture and modern chiropractic, AAT is safe, painless, uses no needles, herbs, or supplements, and does not require a special diet. Instead AAT therapy focuses on the body’s inappropriate reactions to harmless substances to produce rapid, long-term results for the relief of associated symptoms. Schulhof Animal Hospital is the only veterinary practice in southern Connecticut to offer this amazing therapy.

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics works directly with the 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, one patient may have a reaction to soybean by getting rashes while another patient may react with sinus congestion, heartburn or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The symptoms in each of these cases represent a different organ system involved. 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 degree of stress on the organ systems caused by an allergen or offending agent, is proportional to the degree of the negative reaction. 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, allowing for the body to have a more appropriate response.

All holistic fields of medicine are aligned in their 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.


Allergies and sensitivities are caused by an inappropriate reaction to harmless substances. The word “allergy” comes from the Greek allos, meaning “other”. It was first used in 1906 to refer to an "altered reaction" in the body's immune system.

A “true allergy” is a reaction triggered by the immune system, however there are a vast number of symptoms or conditions caused by sensitivities that may or may not involve the immune system. With reactions involving food, a large percentage of the population believes they have allergies, yet fewer than 2% actually have true allergies. In fact, many suffer from undiagnosed food sensitivities or intolerances. The majority of patients who seek the AAT treatment do not have true allergies; their symptoms are likely to be caused by sensitivities with no immune involvement. Since there are few options for the treatment of sensitivities, other than avoidance, AAT provides a highly effective alternative. Symptoms caused by true allergies, however, also respond well to the treatment as the organs systems involved in the reaction are also addressed.

The use of the word “allergy” has become a generic term used by the public to describe allergies, sensitivities and intolerances.

AAT does not diagnose allergies, sensitivities or intolerances.

AAT does not test for allergies or sensitivities. The AAT system simply assesses what may be causing a stress to the body.

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.
