About Tapas:

Tapas Fleming is the founder and 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.
