One’s robust livelyhood can depend on the answers to such questions: are there things that are exciting to look forward to with sweet anticipation that draws you forward with a sense of thrill or enjoyment, or maybe even great and profound appreciation? 

Are such things not fountains of youth that speak to your purpose and vast potential for living a full and enriching life within, and with others?”

(Tapas Acupressure Technique)

 Q: What is TAT?

A: TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique) is an easy way to attain inner peace, relaxation, more vibrant health and empowerment.   is a combination of Place your attention on whatever the issue is and touch a few specific acupuncture points on your face and at the back of your head—that’s it!

TAT is elegantly simple; you can easily learn the basic steps and the pose in one sitting. However, TAT has an almost infinite number of applications. You can spend a lifetime exploring its dimensions and the many ways in which it can be used.

Q: When was it developed?

A: In 1993.

Q: Who developed it?

A: Tapas Fleming, a Licensed Acupuncturist in California.

Q: How many people have used it?

A: Tens of thousands for hundreds of thousands of problems.

Q: What's TAT good for?

A: In short, it's good for ending stress, especially traumatic stress; freeing a person of allergic reactions; gaining self-confidence and a positive outlook on life; and attaining empowerment.

Q: Will I re-live my trauma and feel pain again with TAT?

A: No.  You may very occasionally feel an intensifying of feeling, but it usually lasts for only 10-15 seconds.

Q: How many times do I have to do a session on one trauma?

A: Only once and it's a done deal.  Sometimes related events will come to mind and then you would do TAT about those, but the original trauma you worked on clears and the stress is gone.

Q: What do I do if I'm afraid to do this on my own or it feels too big to do myself?

A: Do TAT with a trained TAT Practitioner who is also a licensed psychotherapist.

Q: Are there any side effects from doing TAT?

A: Occasionally you may feel tired after doing TAT.  A good night's sleep will take care of it.  Also, remember to drink plenty of water after doing TAT and limit your time in the pose to 20 minutes a day.  TAT moves a lot of energy and doing these things will help facilitate the clearing process while maintaining your vibrancy.

Q: Is it normal to sigh when something clears?

A: Yes, although this doesn't happen for everyone and that's normal too.

Q: After a few seconds in the pose, my mind begins to wander.     
     What does that mean?

A: It means you're done with that step.  

Q: Do I have to be a trained professional to do TAT?

A: No, anyone can do TAT.

Q: Does it work for children, animals?

A: Yes. 

Q: Can I be a Christian and do TAT?

A: Yes, ask the Holy Spirit or the Lord to do the healing.

Q: Can I be true to God/Goddess/Great Spirit as I know God/Goddess/Great Spirit and do TAT?

A: Yes, ask God/Goddess/Great Spirit, as you know God/Goddess/Great Spirit to do the healing.

Q: Can I be an atheist or agnostic and do TAT?

A: Yes, envision the Energy of Love doing the healing.

Q: Do I have to believe TAT will work for it to work?

A: No, you don't.  Just do the steps.  TAT works for children and even for animals.  They have no belief about TAT.

Q: What do I do if it doesn't seem to be working? 

A: Ask yourself this question:  "If (this problem -- whatever you're working on) healed, what would it mean for me?"  Then work on the thought that comes to mind.  Do just the first two steps of TAT.  For example, if what comes to mind is "If (this problem) clears up, no one will listen to me anymore," then use that statement as Step 1.  Then for Step 2, just put "It's not true that" in front of the thought that came up.  So in this case, it would be "It’s not true that if (this problem) clears up no one will listen to me anymore."  Then return to the problem you were originally working on and proceed.

Q: How will I know if TAT has worked?

A: When you do TAT to clear up a belief, you may not be able to sense an immediate change. You may only notice the change when life presents a situation and you respond differently than before you did TAT. 
You are more likely to notice a change when you do TAT to heal a situation or trauma that is currently causing you stress. In this situation, you may feel a sense of immediate relaxation, inner peace and empowerment upon completion of TAT. In some cases, you may feel no change and will have to wait and how you behave and feel according to the life situations that occur.
Eventually, life will present you with an event, and you will look back and be amazed that you have responded in a more healthy, empowered way than before you did TAT.
