Weight Loss

This exercise is a variation of the Tapas Acupressure Technique (or TAT) that has been shown to be effective for weight loss in research study funded by Kaiser Permanente and The National Institutes of Health. The study tested TAT in a scientific randomized controlled study and found it to be effective for weight loss maintenance. In fact, the study found that attendance at weight maintenance was 72% for TAT Tapas Acupressure Technique - higher than any other method studied. The study was published in March 2007 in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.

Five of six participants of the study reported almost immediate help in curbing cravings, controlling overeating, and sticking to a “good eating plan” following the use of TAT:
“I did it for eating and cravings. In particular, I have this brownie habit. At the afternoon break at work at three o’clock, the cafeteria has this chocolate brownie that calls to me every single day! So we worked at one of the classes on this brownie craving and it went away. I mean three o’clock came and went and I didn’t think about it!”

Sit comfortably or lie down, close your eyes and breath deeply when massaging the active points.
