About Health & Wellness Australia and Auckland
At Health & Wellness Australia and Auckland, we have brought practitioners from several different modalities together and pride ourselves on providing the up-most care to our clients, to help them improve their health and quality of life.
Health & Wellness Australia and Auckland began operating in 2011, when we inherited the rights to our natural allergy treatment called Positive Association Technique (PAT). Positive Association Technique (PAT) is a natural allergy treatment that aims to reduce the symptoms of allergies, sensitivities and intolerances.
Understanding that many chronic allergy-related conditions have varying underlying causes, we have incorporated our practitioners Naturopathic knowledge to help clients get the best results possible, and to increase longevity of Positive Association Technique (PAT) results.
Our personal story
Health & Wellness Australia is owned and managed by an Australian family who started out as clients of the North Sydney clinic. The treatments worked so well that they bought the business.
The original owner Paul suffered from asthma and psoriasis from the age of 6. He relied on multiple ventolin, seretide and cortisone medications and creams which offered him little relief from his allergy symptoms. His Asthma was so serious that he was rejected from an asthma trial conducted by Concord hospital in 2004.
While searching for natural allergy solutions to help with his allergies, Paul came across the PAT technique (then known as Advanced Allergy Elimination) and although he was initially sceptical, decided to try it. After 12 consultations over 3 months Paul noticed a profound improvement in his allergy symptoms. He was so pleased with the results he bought the business so he could help other people to enhance the quality of life in the same way.
Paul's daughter Jessica inherited a sensitive immune system and suffered from several sinus, skin and acne issues. After a series of consultations, Jessica's symptoms dramatically improved; she now just needs a pollen 'top up' treatment for her hay fever every couple of years.
Jessica is now the manager of the business and is dedicated to helping as many people as possible to relieve their allergy symptoms with PAT. She is also in contact with medical researchers to conduct a study on the effect of PAT on people with allergies to their pets.
Please note: Individual results can and do vary, Health & Wellness Australia & PAT cannot cure or diagnose allergies.
