What Are the Bars®?

"At Worst You'll Feel Like You Had a Great Massage. At Best, Your Whole Life Could Change."

Gary Douglas, Founder, Access Consciousness

The "Bars" are 32 points on the head that when gently touched help you effortlessly release thoughts, feelings and beliefs that no longer serve you. 


Access Bars®, as the technique is called, is an intensely relaxing experience. It brings clarity and an incredible sense of peace. Research shows it improves sleep; relieves headaches and other physical pain; and measurably reduces feelings of depression, stress and anxiety:

  • Neuroscientist Dr. Jeffrey Fannin has studied thousands of brains, and says brain scans of people after having their Bars run are consistent with those of advanced meditators.

  • "Before-and-After" surveys of more than 300 people show reduced stress by as much as 50% after only a partial session. 

  • A recent controlled and peer-reviewed pilot study, published in the Journal of Energy Psychology, showed drops in anxiety and depression by over 80%.

The best way to discover what Access Bars can add to your life is to experience it. There are several practitioners in the Washington, DC area; and thousands around the world in more than 170 countries.
