The Benefits of Access Bars Therapy


The benefits of Access Bars

ACCESS BARS: A LIFE CHANGING ALTERNATIVE THERAPY

Access Bars® is a relaxing and nurturing process that have assisted thousands of people to change many aspects of their life and body including stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, health, weight, body image, sleep, money, sex, relationships, and so much more!


WHAT ARE THE BARS?

The Bars® are 32 points on the head that store the electromagnetic component of your thoughts, feelings, emotions, ideas, beliefs, and considerations as they are stored in the brain. When activated, The Bars can help facilitate reduction of stress, pain and trauma throughout the body and increase positive attitudes toward life. Access Bars is a gentle touch hands-on alternative therapy technique introduced by Gary M. Douglas in 1990.


Access Bars

WHAT IS AN ACCESS BARS SESSION?


An Access Bars Session, or having your Bars run, as it is often called, begins to release the thoughts, feelings, emotions, beliefs and limiting programs that no longer serve you.

During a session the 32 Bars points are lightly touched. This process begins to release the electromagnetic charge or polarity of the thoughts, feelings, emotions, ideas, beliefs, considerations and decisions as it is stored in your brain.


Typically, you lie on a massage table or sit in a zero gravity chair. There is no need to remove any clothing. Only the head, hands and feet (optional) are touched. It's nice to have a blanket on hand, as sometimes your body temperature may change. Sessions typically last 45 to 90 minutes. Introductory or taster sessions are typically 20 minutes.


The Bars can be run anywhere; a noisy environment will not prevent the Bars from running. I have run Bars in hospitals, at the park, outdoors, in offices, at airports, on airplanes and in various other locations.


WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN ACCESS BARS SESSION?


Access Bars is a hands-on process that releases hundreds of thousands of points of view which are limiting you in different areas of your life and body. These areas include body, aging, healing, sexuality, money, joy, sadness, awareness, control, creativity, plus many more. What would it be like to have more freedom in all these areas?


Having your Bars run tends to be a relaxing and nurturing process. At worst you'll feel like you've had a great massage. Best case scenario, your whole life will change into something greater with total ease!


What is most often reported is that there is a sense of deep relaxation. Many people go to sleep – even in a very noisy environment. Some people have images come to them, others see colors, or feel sensations in their bodies such as buzzing, tingling, warmth, twitches or shivers.


Everyone is different so there is no “normal” Access Bars Session. Each session will be different, every time, even if you repeat with the same person. The best way to find out what Access Bars will be like for you is to try it for yourself!


Are you willing to give yourself an hour to change your life?




WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS REPORTED?


Access Bars have been reported to help with stress reduction, deep relaxation, ease of sleep, dissipating mind chatter, releasing trauma, reducing overwhelm, decreasing negative and limiting thought patterns, changing negative behavioral patterns, improving overall wellbeing, and increasing feelings of calmness, inner peace, happiness and gratitude.


When The Bars are lightly touched, they effortlessly and easily release anything that does not allow you to receive. The Bars release decisions about any area of your life that you have made solid and as a result cannot change. The Bars begin to dissolve judgment from within.


HOW DO THE BARS WORK?


When The Bars are lightly touched, the brain waves actually slow down, allowing behavioral patterns, belief systems, and points of view that you have been running from childhood or from other lifetimes to be accessed. The brain wave’s change from beta waves, which are attentive mode, to alpha/theta waves, which are relaxed/fall asleep mode. Brain wave measurement shows increased brain coherence after receiving Access Bars. Access Bars optimize brain performance, increase concentration ability and improve emotional stability.


THE BARS: A HOLISTIC COMPLEMENTARY THERAPY


Access Bars is a holistic complementary therapy that activates the body’s innate ability to self-heal. Access Bars complement any conventional or alternative treatment or therapy and have been found to increase the capacity and potency of other healing modalities.


Do you remember the last moment in your life when you were totally relaxed, nurtured and cared for? Or has it been a little too long since you received healing and kindness without any judgment of your body or you're being?


Access bars research

Access Bars is backed by published scientific research. Science is once again beginning to catch up to what Gary Douglas, Access Consciousness founder has known for 30+ years.


In 2015 leading neuroscientist Dr. Jeffrey Fannin examined the neurological effects of the Access Bars. He discovered that Access Bars have a positive neurological effect on the recipient greater than those experienced by advanced meditators and it produced these results immediately.


Dr. Terrie Hope, PhD. DNM conducted scientific research on the effects of Access Bars® on anxiety and depression, published in the Journal of Energy Psychology in 2017. In summary The Bars were found to reduce stress and anxiety by 85% and depression by 82% in as little as one session. All participants showed an increase in Brain Coherence.


Dr. Hope also found that participants who, before the 90-minute Access Bars session, reported a sense of past failure, self-criticalness, loss of pleasure, and agitation, all reported 100% of these symptoms were resolved after the session. Learn more about Access Bars Research.
