    Salt Oasis Spa & Wellness Center Now Offering Access Bars


    Carrie Bossinger is conducting Access Bars sessions by appointment at Salt Oasis Spa & Wellness Center, in Summerville. She says, “The Access Bars are 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head that connect to different aspects of your life. We call all of the points we touch when using this modality ‘The Bars’.” A single Bars session is $100 and discount packages are available.

    Access Consciousness“The initial session may run up to 90 minutes, but most often will be roughly 60 minutes. You will be comfortably relaxed on a massage table. Most fall asleep fairly quickly. What a beautiful way to clear out past limiting beliefs (known or unknown) and experience healing,” advises Bossinger.

    The underlying principle is that the Bars store the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions and beliefs that we have ever had about anything. There are Bars for healing, body, control, awareness, creativity, power, aging, sex and money.

    Location: 103B Harth Place, Summerville, SC. For appointments and more information, call 843-501-1757 or visit SaltOasisCharleston.com.
