What is Access Consciousness Bars?

Gary Douglas is the founder of Access Consciousness®. Over twenty years ago he reached a point in his life where life just wasn’t working for him. After spending years trying to make sense of the insanity of his life, years of trying to do what was supposed to bring happiness, he reached a breaking point.

He realized there has to be more to life than this, and if there isn’t, he wasn’t interested anymore. So, he began to ask some questions. These questions led to a path that brought about the Bars®. More specifically Access Consciousness Bars®.

What is Access? Gary explains here:

Access is the set of tools and processes that are designed to facilitate more consciousness for everyone. Consciousness includes everything without judgment. It is the willingness and capacity to be totally aware, totally present in all areas of your life. Consciousness is the ability to continually awaken to more possibility, more choice, and more life.

The invitation of Access is to help you acknowledge you as the infinite being you truly are and to step into generating a life beyond the you, you think you are. As an infinite being you function from infinite perceiving, knowing, being and receiving. As an infinite being all things are possible all the time and you have total choice.

As a finite being the tendency is to function from thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Access Consciousness® is about unlocking you from the polarity, imprisonment, conditioning and limitation of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. When we are functioning from finiteness, we choose to have little choice and limited possibilities.

Polarity keeps us from actually seeing things as hey are so that we can’t change what we would like to change. It keeps us functioning from the trauma and drama, the upset and intrigue of the reality. Our addiction to polarity is one of the strongest addictions there is.

One of the greatest tools to unlocking us from this addiction is to function from allowance. Allowance is where everything is just an interesting point of view. Allowance lets us become aware of all the areas in our life where we are either aligning and agreeing or resisting and reacting to any points of view, thoughts, feelings, emotions, beliefs, judgements, conclusions, or considerations.

We can begin to set ourselves free by reminding ourselves that everything we think, feel, believe, judge or have decided is just an interesting point of view.

“Consciousness is the ability to be present in your life every moment, without judgment of you or anyone else. It is the ability to receive everything, reject nothing, and create everything you desire in life- greater than what you currently have, and more than what you can imagine.

What if you were willing to nurture and care for you? What if you would open the doors to being everything you have decided is not possible to be? What would it take for you to realize how crucial you are to the possibilities of the world?”


In contrast to a massage, Access Consciousness® Bars Healing does not involve manual manipulations of muscles and soft tissue. Instead, this treatment focuses on the 32 points on the head, which contain all the ideas, beliefs, emotions, thoughts, and considerations you’re storing in your mind. When gently touched these special bars, you will release anything that is preventing you from living your most joyful life. This is a relaxing energy medicine technique helpful for managing stress, anxiety, trauma, recovery, and fosters overall wellbeing and openness to the infinite possibilities that are possible.

One Healing Touch Reiki & Massage (OHT) is a boutique-style Reiki & Massage studio that also offers Access Consciousness® Bars treatments. Here Adriane utilizes various methods to align and keep the body, mind, and spirit in balance. For more information, visit
