What is TAT®?

TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique®) combines holding acupressure points on your head and going through a series of statements. The statements include an intention for safe and easy healing and a way for you to disconnect from traumas, negative emotions and self-limiting beliefs that have been affecting you since the moment they happened.

What happens when you do TAT?

Imagine there is a part of you in every experience of your life. For each positive or negative experience, there is a part of you left in it. When you think of memories that make you happy, like certain smells, places or even hearing a song, it almost feels like you are transported back to that moment. You find yourself smiling and remembering the happiness you felt. 

The same kind of reaction happens when you are reminded of a trauma or negative experience. You can feel it in your whole body. A sinking sensation, your body tightening up, feeling fear, anxiety or worry, or a feeling of heaviness can come over you. You might even find yourself perspiring, your heart rate going up and your breathing becoming shallow. You are taken back to all the negative parts of the experience, and you are having a reaction to it because parts of you are stuck in that experience.

The TAT® process clears your emotional connection to the trauma or negative experience. While you still have the memory, you no longer have the emotional charge, physical reaction, or stuck connection to it. 

Once the emotional connection is cleared, you are no longer triggered by those memories. Your mind and body understand that it’s over and you are safe and okay. 


Do you now or have you ever thought or felt:

    • I hate myself.
    • I have no value.
    • I can’t trust anybody.
    • I’m anxious all the time.
    • I’m sad or depressed a lot of the time.
    • I’m so angry.
    • I can’t get out of feeling like a victim and things never work out for me.
    • What’s wrong with me?
    • I’m lonely and I can’t connect with people.
    • I don’t have the kind of deep, meaningful relationship I want with a partner.
    • I keep having chronic health issues and suspect that things I experienced in my past are making it so I can’t get well.
    • I’m afraid I won’t be able to do what I came here to do because I keep getting in my own way.

All of those thoughts and feelings come from past, painful, unhealed experiences. The TAT® process can heal all of those. This means that those feelings and thoughts actually come to an end.
