In 2021, just three weeks after receiving her first Access Bars®️ session, Leah left her marketing job of 18 years at a bank, rented a space (ironically in a historical bank building) and opened her own store, Element. She attributes much of the courage needed to start this new endeavor to the effects of the Bars®️ experience, leaving her feeling clear and open to new possibilities that felt light and exciting.


Founded and developed by Gary Douglas, Access Bars®️ is a process that activates 32 points on the head. Lightly touching the points, or bars, which store the electrical components of thoughts, feelings, emotions, beliefs, judgements and points of view, releases that locked up energy and allows more ease in many areas of your life. 


Leah learned the practice herself in 2022, to spread the word and help others feel clarity, energy and help them get to know what they already know.
