Ever felt like you were “fighting your physiology” when you were trying to change something? That’s because you may well have been. I know the feeling well and spent many years feeling mired in my own biology, before I found a body process known as the Access Bars, which enabled me to truly change things for myself.
The Access Bars has been a big part of my own recovery journey and although I am no longer teaching and mentoring new practitioners, I still use it with in person clients experiencing trauma and hardship to create the physiological changes necessary for them to benefit from coaching and talk therapy. (This is an in person treatment only, However, if you live in other parts of the world, don’t worry, I can recommend good practitioners in your area). I can also offer verbal facilitation to create energetic change via zoom, so this is another way you can work with me to powerfully unlock energy.
The Access Bars is the flagship body process in Access. This is because it works heavily on the brain and neural pathways and is completely unlike every other body work out there. The Bars involves lightly holding 32 points on the head for an hour or 90 minutes and allows the recipient to enter a brainwave state known as coherence (this state is something that people who have meditated for many years experience). Neuro scientist Geoffrey Fannin, studied the Bars in 2016 and said this is the only thing, he has found in his entire career, that affects the brain in this way.
Coherence is basically a state which makes you feel connected to every person and molecule in the Universe, AKA oneness. The value of the state is that it provides massive clarity, insight and creativity as well as alignment, which helps you bring about your goals more easily (it helps by-pass old blocks and limitations to create from unlimited possibilities instead). This is the reason that many high achievers love the Bars, as without long or rigerous study, they gain access to states which gives them an almost unfair advantage in the world.
The way that the Bars creates coherence, is by ‘defragging the human hard drive’. This means that traumas, dramas, points of view, judgments and limitations that you have been carrying, which are stored in the electrical circuitry in your body, brain and energy field, can be released during a session. This enables you to become free of old impulses and patterns often for the first time, allowing you to significantly change your behavior without fighting against your physiology to do so.
These things become locked into the body via the breath when they take place and then like well worn wagon wheel ruts, become solid and ingrained (and automatic) over time. These reactions are layered in the body, stored over the top of each other, eventually becoming solid until we feel ‘full up’ unable to move and may be (in extreme examples) just putting one foot in front of the other. These electrical responses are what keeps us locked in flight or fight, fawning or freezing, long after any danger has passed.

Dr Terrie Hope PhD has done a longditudinal study into the Bars and she found that it is significant in the treatment of both anxiety and depression. The Bars is being used with war vets in the US and in low decile schools to create new possibilities. I would say that Bars instantly and powerfully allieviates depression and anxiety in those I work with and ironically, the worse you feel, the more change you can expect to receive from a session.
The Bars is very gentle to receive and often the way as session is referred to is “At worst you will feel as relaxed as if you had the most amazing massage of your life, at best, your whole life will change”. We can’t build a new building on old foundations and we shouldn’t do that with ourselves either, therefore excavating old limitations is often a critical first step in the change journey ahead of choosing a program of life coaching.
Access Bars is valuable for any type of personal transformation.
- Bars is good for children and students wanting good results from exams
- It can work amazingly for alieviating stress, depression and anxiety
- It aid resolution of sleep issues and assist with clarity of thought
- It can help with physical symptoms in the body and may ease pregnacy and childbirth
- It is great for those on the spectrum
- It can be wonderful for helping shift abuse and trauma and is used with returned verterans in the US and special needs kids in low decile areas.
- Because if works on the brain, the Bars can assist with resolving, shifting, clearing and letting go of old addictions, patterns of behavior and stuckness that nothing else has accessed.
You can read about my first ever Access Bars session here. Having your Bars isn’t a by-pass for doing your inner work, it can facilitate far more ease with the process and tip the balance in your favor by getting your biology working for you.
Isn’t getting the most our of your life worth trying something new? If you’d like to give this cutting edge, neuro-scientist endorsed approach a try, go here to book. If you’d like to start your New Year off by travelling to Nelson for a few days and booking several longer intensive sessions, go here. I’d be happy to make time ahead of my study commitments later in the year to help you create a new reality in 2022!
