What is Access Bars®?

The Access Bars® are specific points of energy on the head that store the electromagnetic component of all the beliefs and thought patterns that we have developed throughout our lives. The electromagnetic charge of our thoughts and belief patterns gets locked in the brain, solidifying the energy and limiting our point of view and capacity to move forward (think neural pathways/neuroplasticity). Each Bar correlates with a specific pathway of energy and aspect of life, and by clearing these pathways, we release ourselves from old thought patterns, belief systems, and habits that prevent us from healing and growing.

What can I expect from a session?

Every Access Bars® session is different. The worst that can happen after a session is that you feel as relaxed as if you had received a great massage. The best that can happen is that your whole life can change.

Among the most commonly reported effects are:

  • an increased sense of peace, openness and ease
  • being less reactive to situations which might have upset you in the past
  • more restful and deep sleep
  • feeling that whatever was upsetting before the session doesn’t matter anymore.

Once you have a single Access Bars® session, the Bars continue to release stuck energy forever. Every time you have it done after the first session, the effect becomes more dynamic with the most dramatic effects happening within the following 3-4 weeks after a session. Most people who have their Bars run regularly report that their lives continue getting easier and better, however there is no obligation or requirement to have regular sessions in order for the treatment to be wonderfully effective.

What are the origins of Access Bars®?

Access Bars® is a gentle, non-invasive, gentle touch energy healing modality that was introduced by Gary Douglas in the early 1990s. Like Reiki, Access Bars® is a do-no-harm healing modality in that a treatment can never hurt an individual, nor will it release anything the individual is not prepared to release.

What can Access Bars® be used for?

When we Run the Bars™ (as practitioners call it), we use gentle touch on the head to dissipate the electromagnetic component of past thoughts, feelings and emotions. It's like hitting the reset button on all of the unhealthy energetic patterns developed over the course of your life. This is a gentle, nurturing, and deeply relaxing process which removes limitation in all aspects of your life that you are ready and willing to change.

Studies have shown that Access Bars® treatments slow brainwaves down to a theta state allowing behavioral patterns and childhood perspectives to surface and be released, and a greater state of presence, allowance, and openness to arise. Limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings can be lifted, including fears about money and abundance, blocks to creativity, difficulty receiving, residual grief, sleep challenges, health and weight, sex and relationships, anxiety, stress or any other life patterns that no longer work for you.
