What the Heck is Access BARS?

What is Bars? It’s the short term for the Physical and Energetic treatment known as Access Consciousness Bars. Access Consciousness is a modality that creates quick change, created by Gary Douglas.

See the Documentary:

This year a friend introduced me to Access through the book, The Right Body for You. I found it fascinating and I wanted to know more. The first class available in my area was the BARS…

And so entered this strange and wonderful treatment into my life and the lives of my clients.

I describe the learning of and the practice of a Bars Session as an adventure. It may sound funny to describe a treatment session as an adventure, but the BARS truly can be just that. It is often described as the feeling like the best massage you’ve ever had or….it changes everything.

Dain Heer, one of the founding partners of Access Consciousness, describes in his book, Being You Changing the World, that the first time he had a BARS treatment his life was changed forever. He had been contemplating suicide when he found a BARS Practitioner and decided to try it out. Suffering from depression and frustration had pushed him to the point of wanting to be done with this life, he shared that the BARS treatment allowed him to shift perspective in a way that set him on the path to traveling the world sharing this work.


For most, a first BARS session is not so dramatic. For most it is deeply relaxing. So what is it? In a BARS session, the client lays on a massage table face up. The practitioner very gently moves their finger tips to 32 points on the head during a 60 minute session. Each spot signals the body to relax, reset and renew. For some it’s so relaxing that they fall asleep. For others, the body and mind are more active.

An Access Consciousness BARS Session is known for allowing the body to delete what is no longer needed, for example unwanted emotions, thoughts or physical manifestations. How? The BARS Practitioner may notice the body or mind has become more active and ask if something has come to mind. It can be a thought, impression or even a physical sensation. Then they will run what is referred to as a clearing statement, a way of signaling the body to release what has presented itself as ready to be released. The issue - physical, mental or emotional - often is simply deleted or offloaded and no longer affects the body.


A BARS session can also allow the body and mind to restore vitality and balance.  Many people emerge from a session looking and feeling younger and healthier! This has amazed me! As I began to use the BARS with my clients I noticed that many of them emerged from the session looking visibly younger! It’s amazing what releasing energetic blockage from the body can do in such a short time. I am now encouraging my clients to have a BARS Session with me at least once to discover what is possible for them in their lives, health and emotions.

Access BARS has assisted thousands of people to change many aspects of their lives. People report better health, ease of sleep, weight loss, better sex and relationships, relief from anxiety, less stress and so much more...
