Access Bars® is a unique and nurturing process that has helped thousands find relief from stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. This transformative therapy utilises 32 points on the head, which correspond to different thoughts, feelings, emotions, ideas, beliefs, and considerations. When these points, known as The Bars®, are gently touched, they release limiting factors, leading to a reduction in stress, pain, and trauma, and an increase in positive attitudes.
How Access Bars Works
Introduced by Gary M. Douglas in 1990, Access Bars involves a practitioner lightly touching specific points on the head. This action slows down brain waves, allowing access to behavioral patterns and belief systems formed in childhood or past lifetimes. The shift from beta to alpha/theta brain waves fosters an environment for profound mental changes, optimizing brain performance, enhancing focus, and stabilizing emotions.

The Therapeutic Session
An Access Bars session involves the gentle touching of 32 points on the head, releasing the electromagnetic charge of thoughts and emotions.

The process is deeply relaxing, with many falling asleep or experiencing a profound sense of peace.
