Are you struggling with an addiction or an unwanted habit? Have you been physically or emotionally abused in the past and are looking to heal some wounds? If so, it might be time to look into accessing your subconscious mind to help you overcome any traumas that might be holding you back.
Access Consciousness Bars
Access Consciousness Bars (Bars) is one of the many treatments offered by Access Consciousness, an organization founded in 1995 by Gary Douglas and Dr. Dain Heer. Bars are an energy healing technique that has been shown to help people release blocks and joyfully reset their energy system in as little as one session. The 32 points on the head are touched by the practitioner using gentle pressure to stimulate the release of negative emotions, beliefs, and traumas from the body's cells and tissues.
How Access Consciousness Bars Can Assist Trauma Patients
As mentioned previously, Access Consciousness Bars is a form of therapy that uses 32 points on the head to remove trauma from the body. This can help people who have experienced trauma find joy in their lives again and reset their system so they can start to see progress in healing from past trauma.
While this is still undergoing extensive research, its early results show promise for those struggling with mental health issues such as PTSD and panic attacks. It has been proven to be a safe and effective way of healing past traumas through somatic experience in clinical studies and has seen success since its introduction.
Although it sounds strange and unconventional, there is actually some scientific support for these kinds of treatments. The study referenced above looked at how traumatic memories are encoded within neural pathways and found evidence to suggest that physical contact can disrupt them.
That doesn't mean the memories disappear completely, but they may lose some power over a person's behavior. In other words, the touch creates what they call access -- a doorway into those neural pathways which can then allow new memories to form or old ones to be reprocessed.
How To Use Bars In Your Life
Bars can be used in many different ways: for stress relief, emotional healing, or clearing limiting beliefs or patterns about yourself or life in general. For example, some people find the bars helpful in releasing anxiety associated with flying on airplanes. Other people may find them helpful for addressing feelings about being overweight or struggles related to a diet, such as food addiction. Still, others may use them to address an eating disorder such as bulimia nervosa.
Bars are one of the most promising treatments for PTSD and trauma to date. It's not about taking away memories or burying them deep down inside — it's about reframing how we think of what happened in order to live life differently and without the weight of the past dragging us down and retraumatizing us.
