What makes healing with TAT different from other approaches?

With TAT you can heal without reliving anything, talking about it, digging for core issues or figuring anything out. You can literally just push play, sit back, relax, and heal.

As a result of doing TAT you can experience: 

  • Self confidence - Loving yourself, respecting yourself, having strong boundaries
  • Ability to look for a solution instead of being controlled by a problem
  • Being proactive instead of reactive
  • Ability to not let a bad 5 minutes ruin a whole day
  • Ability to understand another person’s situation without taking their actions personally
  • No longer thinking from the perspective of a victim
  • Self awareness - healing your issues instead of blaming other people
  • Being able to identify a negative mindset or reaction and correct it immediately
  • Being able to focus on what you want and create it

Tapas Fleming, the talented founder of TAT, has created and offers a masterful approach to healing old wounds that feel like they will forever hold us in their grip.

"Night after night during the TAT workshop I hosted, I saw trauma and pain simply dissipate and dissolve. I was as excited and overwhelmed as the participants were because of the absolute, unprecedented beauty of the healings I witnessed. I have no doubt TAT is the most effective treatment to resolve trauma of any nature."

We got to such a deep old hurt from when I was two years old!!!  I never knew it was there, that I had formed this decision as a result of childhood abuse that had been running my life ever since. TAT is a miracle.

I’ve felt this way since I had my first session years ago. TAT with Tapas is light, penetrating, profound, holy. I’m so excited to see how the rest of my life goes from here!"

 Tapas Fleming, Founder & Creator of TAT

After facilitating personal growth for many years, Tapas Fleming became interested in physical and energetic healing. She became a Licensed Acupuncturist and began her practice in 1987, specializing in the treatment of allergies.


Searching for a simple, effective treatment, Tapas developed TAT in 1993. She soon realized that in addition to relieving her patients' allergic reactions, TAT was clearing the effects of their past stressful or traumatic experiences in an easy, gentle way. Now one of the most celebrated leaders in energy psychology, Tapas has taught TAT to hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic people worldwide.

Tapas Fleming joins us today to discuss the Tapas Acupressure Technique® (TAT®) and shares how to do the TAT pose while leading us through how the technique works to clear emotional connections to trauma, negative experiences, and unpleasant thoughts that may cause stress and anxiety in our lives, including current worries regarding the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). She explains how TAT can be used to heal the emotional charge and physical reactions to trauma, abuse, stress, and adverse childhood experiences so that an individual is no longer triggered by those memories and can live from a more spiritually-connected, centered, and peaceful place.

Through TAT, Tapas shares that unresolved emotions and limiting beliefs that have been picked up from family members, society, and events that we’ve lived through can be dissolved in a gentle but powerful way so that individuals can live from a more natural expression of who they are.
