Access Bars Therapy

Access Bars® was developed by Gary Douglas the founder of Access Consciousness and it was the first tool he developed. It is at the foundation of Access Consciousness. Access Bars® is a relaxing and nurturing process that has assisted many people to create more joy in their life by letting go of old beliefs, attitudes, and ideas.

What Is

Access Bars®

The Bars refers to 32 points in the head. These 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head store the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that you have from this or other lifetimes. Some of the Bars are around control, awareness, power, aging, sex, and money. The thoughts attitudes, beliefs and decisions that you have may limit your ability to feel successful in a these areas of your life.

The purpose of a Bars session is to clear those points and to invite people to receive. When activated, The Bars can help facilitate reduction of stress, pain, and trauma throughout the body and increase positive attitudes toward life.

The practice of having this therapy done is known as ‘running your bars’. Having your Bars Run involves touching different points on your head. This process supports mental and emotional clarity. It is based on the idea that by touching these points, it helps clear negative energy underlying the limiting ideas and attitudes and therefore allow change to occur. Some of the reported changes have included increased motivation and relief from anxiety, migraines, depression.

This treatment is suitable for anyone who wants to experience and create more ease and joy in their lives. Imagine if someone could touch a point on your head and delete the voice of the inner critic telling you that you’re not enough.

How Does Running The Bars Work

By gently touching these 32 points on the head, the energy and barriers dissipate and the electromagnetic charge is released. Think of it as deleting old computer files, once released you open up more space to add new files in the form of thoughts and beliefs that will better serve you.

The points correspond to different areas of your life, such as money, control, creativity, aging, joy and communication. However, all the points are connected. For instance if you clear limitations in one area, say creativity, it will affect change in other areas of your life as well, perhaps joy and abundance. All Bars are connected to each other and running the Bars opens up infinite possibilities.

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. When touched, the brain wave’s change from beta waves, attentive mode, to alpha/theta waves, relaxed/fall asleep mode. Brain wave measurement shows increased brain coherence after receiving Access Bars. Access Bars optimizes brain performance, increases concentration, and improves emotional stability.

What does an Access Bars Session feel like?

What is most often reported is that there is sense of complete relaxation, and many people even fall asleep. Some people have images come to them, others feel sensations in their body such as tingling, changes in body temperature, or twitches. You may have a release of emotion, cry or laugh out loud for no apparent reason. A sense of peace and feeling lighter is often present at the end of a Bars session.

Everyone is different so there is no “normal” 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!

Typically, you lie on a massage table or possibly sit in a zero gravity chair. You remain fully clothed, only the head, hands and feet (optional) are touched. Sessions typically last 45 to 90 minutes. It is a hands-on process where the practitioner lightly touches the 32 points on your head and what occurs is the release of hundreds of thousands of limiting points of view. The room may have soft lighting and you may want to have a blanket for body temperature changes.

As Access Bars® is a system based on energy, it helps the body to release tension and let go of rigid mind patterns, easing the body and mind into a place of overall well-being. 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!

The Research

Access Bars is backed by published scientific research.

In 2015 leading neuroscientist Dr. Jeffrey Fannin examined the neurological effects of the Access Bars. He discovered that Access Bars has 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.


Access Bars® is a holistic complementary therapy that activates the body’s innate ability to self-heal. Access Bars does not interfere with any conventional or alternative treatment or therapy and has been found to increase the capacity and potency of other healing modalities.

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.

The 32 energy centers located on your head, each relate to a different aspect of your consciousness. When releasing these blockages we allow the issues of the body and mind to return to their natural state of calm.

Access Bars Therapy will relax your body, soothe your mind and recharge your vitality. Bringing balance to your whole system. This will leave you in a very tranquil and blissful state.

Most of us know that we limit our self with limiting thoughts, feelings, emotions and point of views. It follows that we can also create greater possibility and abundance in every area of our lives by changing those thoughts, feelings, emotions, and points of view. How do we do that? Access Bars is one way to get there.
