I am a Polarity practitioner and an RN, and Im very excited about
using your wonderful method with my family, friends and clients,
when appropriate. My husband was having trouble sleeping, feeling
caught in some compulsive thinking about a recent communication
with his grown daughter. We tried TAT, following each image that
arose, as directed, and he was quite amazed. He had a feeling
of relaxation about the issue and a letting go of his need to
be heard. He said there was a definite change in his thinking
that evening. Several days have passed, and he continues to feel

I did a quick clearing for my 5 year-old nephew who has a problem
with noise now and then. He was a premie weighing 2.6 pounds at
birth and in the hospital for the first 3 months of his life.
No wonder noise is a problem.
He had been running around with his hands over his ears screaming
I cant stand the noise, its too loud and crying, too. I did
TAT on him and asked his body to effect a safe clearing for whatever
was causing his problem with noise. After clearing for a few seconds,
he was fine!! It was amazing.
I have had (still having) profound experiences and subtle shifts
with drastic effects in working with a long-standing eating disorder.
Although the actual life-threatening habits have not been present
in my life for some time, I found that I still lived in fear and
a need to control this urge from arising. With TAT, I have begun
to re-organize my self-image and gradually let go of this conviction
that I cannot surrender to enjoy my life fully, free of fear of
some monster inside of me. An amazing amount of life force has
been wrapped up in this kind of control, pushing this part of
me out of my experience, as you say.
Id like to tell you how incredibly TAT has worked for me. I am
currently getting treatment for allergies using NAET. I recently
got a new Westie puppy. I am allergic to cats and some dogs. I
was treated for animal dander. I was fine with the pup until he
started peeing and pooping around the house and I found myself
sneezing a lot and having a constant stuffy nose and red eyes
and all the usual allergy symptoms. I didnt have a chance to
see my NAET practitioner, so I decided to give TAT a try. Wow!!
In what seemed like a few minutes, my sinuses cleared up and my
sneezing stopped. The difference in how I feel now is incredible.
TAT is like magic. I was so miserable, stuffed up, itchy and runny
I couldnt stand another minute. During the treatment, I began
to feel the swelling in my nasal passage start to shrink. Before
I got off the table, I felt my right nasal passage open. The itching
was gone and never came back. Wonderful!
Last weekend I was doing some weeding in preparation for a small
garden, and about an hour after I was done I noticed that my forearms
were slightly itchy and had red lines all over them, I assume
from the weeds. I did TAT, focusing on the weeds, for about 15
minutes and then looked at my arms to find that the redness was
completely gone and they didnt itch at all. It was great to see
such a visible sign of what I felt had happened.

When I came to Tapas, I was in a dark place. Environmentally and
chemically sensitive, I was allergic to many foods, unable to
pump my own gas, the fumes from cars made me ill when walking
down busy streets, and cleaning fluids, laundry detergents and
soaps were making me ill too. Not only was my world getting smaller
and smaller, but the mold and mildew in my home was making me
ill as well. I was terrified as to how sick I was getting.
Now I really do believe in miracles. Since I have been treated
with TAT, I am now eating dairy after not being able to for 2
* years. I am pumping my own gas. Mold no longer bothers me. I
can go in the laundromat and down the cleaning supplies aisle
at the supermarket, and I can tolerate other peoples perfume.
What a gift! Thank you.
On the 4th of July, my dog went nuts over the fireworks. When
I TATd him, he moaned and laid down calmly. I also stroked his
spine while I did it. I worked well!
A young woman witnessed a car wreck a year ago, resulting in deaths
in both vehicles. Her own car escaped by a hairs breadth. Since
the accident, she has forced herself to drive, but she was very
anxious and startles easily. She was anxious whether she was the
driver or a passenger.
We used TAT during the evaluation session. That was three weeks
ago. Today, she came in and said that she no longer had a problem.
She rode to a town about two hours away with her husband, and
then drove around the town by herself. She said that her husband
was amazed, because it was the first time she didnt shriek out
loud while he was driving.
A 27 year old man came into my office complaining of insomnia,
anxiety, dizziness, shortness of breath, and depression. A week
before, he had been in the parking lot of a bar late at night
with two of his friends and someone had tried to run over him
and his friends with a car. The driver succeeded in hitting his
friends and seriously injuring them, but the patient was not physically
injured except for a bruised knee. The emotional trauma, however,
was severe. He reported that he could not close his eyes without
seeing the incident in his mind. I did TAT with him and he reported
a big shift occurring. Then he felt very sleepy, and I let him
sleep on the treatment table for a while. When he got up, he said
he felt completely normal. When he left my office, he seemed like
a different person.

After studying your video and workbook, I felt confident to try
it for treating Seasonal Affective Disorder as a toxic sensitivity
to seasonal shifts in light. We sat by a bright unshaded window
for 10 minutes while I guided my wife through the TAT protocol.
It was easy and she was very cooperative. She focused on the spring/summer
light while doing the procedure and she felt a subtle energy shift
(a relaxed feeling) after we were done.
Unlike treating conventional allergies (dairy products, wheat,
dust, cats, dogs, etc.), we could not immediately test the effectiveness
of TAT for this seasonal problem (except with muscle testing).
We had to observe her condition over time and note any deviation
from the usual effects we have experienced in years passed as
the spring season arrives. In previous years, the problems would
begin in the February/March time frame and become intolerable
in April and May. The problems included anxiety, racing thoughts,
loss of appetite, and insomnia.
I am pleased to report that as of this writing (April 10),
there have been no signs of any of the usual problems associated
with this time of year. I am optimistic (and approaching amazed)
that the treatment may have worked. I guess Im being a bit cautious
(maybe even a bit superstitious) before I can confidently declare
that she has been cured. I think Ill be totally convinced that
shes cured when we get through 2 consecutive years with no seasonal
problems. Weve been dealing with this for over a decade, so I
want to be careful and patient in observing the results over time,
but with each passing day, Im believing more and more that something
fantastic has occurred.
Now, here are some of my own experiences with TAT. Ive used
it to treat allergies to dust, pollen, and cats. Especially cats!
After the TAT treatment for cats, I went to visit my brother and
his family. They have an adorable playful cat named Pepper. In
previous visits there, I had to take an antihistamine just to
be able to stay in the house for a few hours. This time, I went
over there with the pills in my pocket but I never needed them.
I had no sneezing, wheezing, or watery eyes at all. There was
a little tightness in my chest but that cleared up on its own.
For the first time ever, I spent a whole day in the presence of
a cat and needed no medication to feel fine. Yes I am amazed (there,
I said it!).
Ive also noticed that my breathing has been much clearer on
a daily basis. I dont have the usual congestion that Ive gotten
used to, especially at bedtime. For years, I have kept Afrin nasal
spray on my nightstand and used it frequently. In the past two
months since trying TAT, Ive only needed nasal spray on 2 occasions.
And I dont keep it by my bedside anymore. I wake up most mornings
with clear nasal passages. OK ,OK, I am amazed again!
Getting back to TAT for Seasonal Affective Disorder, the results
we have seen so far have been very encouraging. More research
and clinical trials need to be done with other SAD sufferers to
demonstrate a consistent pattern of effectiveness. I would recommend
that anyone attempting to use TAT for this problem should treat
all 4 seasons separately. Follow the TAT protocol 4 separate times
for the fall light, then winter, spring, and summer. Knowledge
of muscle testing could help here but isnt necessary. Doing TAT
for the 4 seasonal light shifts is probably going
to help. Please encourage other SAD sufferers to experiment with
this on themselves or to work with a trained practitioner. TAT
is so easy, its worth a try even on the most skeptical of people.
During a TAT seminar, I closed my eyes and was back in Vietnam
in the back seat of a helicopter on a training flight. Several
B-52s had dropped hundreds of 500 pound bombs in the distance.
I took a deep breath as I remembered the helicopter slowly tilting
back as it began to skid into a simulated emergency landing with
an engine failure, but this time we were very tilted back. My
knees were above my head, and the stinger - the tube that sticks
out the back of the helicopter to keep the tail rotor from hitting
the ground and that has never even touched the ground in my entire
two years of flying - was bumping along as if over plowed rows
in a cornfield. Then the tail rotor blades hit the ground and
next the tail boom hit. When the helicopter finally skidded to
a stop, it was upside down, and I was face down with my arms flung
out in front of me. The frame of my seat pressing on the back
of my helmet forcing my face into the dirt and solidly pinning
both my arms and my face into the ground. I was trapped! Everyone
else was dead or unconscious. With the engine still running we
were sure to burn or explode. I was going to die. Eventually,
another helicopter that had seen the crash came to the rescue.
Whenever I remember this, my chest gets tight, my arms feel
tingly and heavy, my palms sweat, and if I am telling the story
to someone, I hear my voice change as my throat tightens, but
as I did TAT, all of a sudden I was aware that I had survived
that crash! In the years following the crash I had shared, cried,
rebirthed, workshopped and catharted this into exhaustion, but
this level of awareness of the fact that I SURVIVED was much stronger
than any sense of survival I ever had before. It was the truth
and I was suddenly aware of something new: there was NO HELICOPTER
on top of me. Even as I had that thought, it seemed silly. Of
course there wasnt a helicopter on top of me, but I sat there
amazed by my new awareness of that reality. For a brief moment
I saw the crash scene from above. Although it was just a flash,
I noticed that it looked different. It was lighter. I closed my
eyes. It WAS lighter. It had always been kind of dark in my memory,
as if there were a giant shaded plexiglass dome covering the site.
I then became aware that as I was thinking about the crash,
my chest, arms, throat and hands were relaxed. All I was having
was a memory of an event that had taken place over twenty-eight
years ago. Nothing more. The next thought I had was that I wanted
the tension back. I had lived with it for so long that it had
seemed a part of me. I closed my eyes again, but it wasnt there
and I couldnt get it to come back, no matter how hard I focused
on the memory.

On February 28, 1998, at the EFT Seminar, Tapas Fleming publicly
demonstrated her TAT posing procedure with me and another person
simultaneously. We were both highly sensitive to petrochemicals.
For me this has been a severe problem as long as I can remember,
and I am 63 years young. This demonstration was done in front
of some 60 professionals and with video cameras and bright lights
Perfumes, gasoline, detergents, lip balms, many soaps and a
variety of other substances have always been very noxious to me.
This has been a major frustration for me, and my wife, for over
27 years, since I could never tolerate any of her perfumes. My
eyes would quickly water and sting and the capillaries curled
in my nose when I smelled her perfume. This was really a big problem,
especially when she would first put it on and we would get in
our car. I could hardly tolerate it. Then, too, I always wanted
to please her by using some male stink pretty stuff on myself,
but I could never tolerate it.
Also, it was always extremely unpleasant when I passed women
on the street who were wearing lots of perfume. It was especially
unpleasant in enclosed spaces like elevators or stores. And, when
I went into department stores I would be assaulted by the cosmetic
counters, which always seem to be placed by the entrances. I learned
to take three deep breaths before entering, hold my breath and
dash past the counters as fast as possible. Of course I had to
repeat this tactic upon leaving the stores. I never could figure
out how to do this with my eyes closed; so, I had to tolerate
that offensive stinging and cringing. I did usually close one
eye to minimize the damage. The only positive benefits were that
I developed a pretty good ability to swim underwater a long time;
and, I improved my agility at getting through crowds.
Pumping gas was always an unpleasant experience. Turpentine
was terrible. Fingernail polish? Yuck! Polish remover? Double
yuck! I just could not handle using kitchen sink cleansers. The
list of noxious, toxic things seemed endless; and, they were everywhere.
Well, after Tapas treated me with her TAT process, all of these
things were neutralized. I still do not care for them. I still
think they are not fit for human consumption. But, they dont
curl my capillaries anymore at all. I can breathe them close
up and personal without the
negative reactions I always had before. I pumped gas just today
(3-14-98), and I was able to breathe the fumes right down by the
hose nozzle (I just had to try it) with no discomfort. Amazing!
As a result of Tapas excellent treatment, I am a happy camper,
my wife is
delighted, and we are both enormously relieved to no longer have
this obstacle to our closeness. It is sure nice to have my wife
within touching distance so much more. She loves her new freedom
to wear her perfumes around me.
Lastly, I want to tell everyone that Tapas is a remarkably
sensitive, perceptive, compassionate and loving person who does
her work in a very professional and ethical manner, and yet she
is a delightfully warm human being. It is a joy to observe her
in action, and very impressive to be her client. I recommend Tapas,
herself, and her TAT treatments to anyone. Simply stated, she
She has my permission to share this letter, and the video of
her treatment with me, with anyone and in any way she wishes.
I recommend her highly. You can be confident that she will provide
effective help in her area of specialization.

TAT Changed My Life! I had become so chemically sensitive that for a year, I couldn't
becomfortable anywhere except for my bedroom, outdoors, or my
doctor's office. TAT relieved me of mostly all of my chemical
sensitivities, and in a short period of time! Now I can go out
in public and not be afraid. In addition, my extensive list of
food allergies has greatly diminished -- after avoiding such foods
as wheat, yeast, cheese, garlic, rice, malt, vinegar, and a host
of others for 14 years, I now have a full and enjoyable diet.
Pollen season has also become much more manageable, as has
exposure to petsand other former irritants.I love the fact that
TAT is non-invasive and really fun to use. It has givenme so much
healing and confidence. I use it pretty much on a daily basis.
Many, many thanks!!
