What is Quantum-Touch?

Quantum-Touch is a powerful, yet easy to learn, energy healing modality.

Everyone has the innate ability to help ourselves and others. The Quantum-Touch techniques teach us how to focus and amplify life-force energy (known as chi in Chinese and prana in Sanskrit) by combining various breathing and body awareness exercises. When you learn to direct the life-force energy, the possibilities are truly extraordinary; our love has more impact than we can imagine. 

How Does Quantum-Touch Energy Healing Work?

In principal the Quantum-Touch practitioner learns to focus and amplify life-force energy ("Chi" or "Prana") by combining various breathing and body awareness exercises.


Everything vibrates. When two things vibrate at different frequencies, there is a tendency for the vibrations to come together. Most often, the slower vibration will rise to match the faster frequency. There are many kinds of examples of entrainment: over time, similarly tuned electric oscillators will match frequencies; disembodied animal hearts when placed near each other and kept alive in a lab will all beat in unison; and when women share a dormitory, over months they will often start menstruating at the same time.

Quantum-Touch uses resonance and entrainment to facilitate healing. The practitioner learns to raise his or her vibration and create a high level of energy. If that energy field is placed around an area of pain, stress, inflammation, or disease, that part of the body will entrain to the higher frequency and allow ones own biological intelligence to do whatever healing it deems necessary.

When the practitioner holds a high vibrational field of life-force energy around an affected area, she or he facilitates healing through the process of resonance and entrainment.

Quantum-Touch actually provides healing energy for the practitioner as well as for the person seeking healing. Using Quantum-Touch breathing and body awareness exercises, the practitioner can hold an extraordinarily high vibration, influencing the person in need of healing to match the vibration of the practitioner. The practitioner will not become drained from doing the work. Most often, the practitioner feels emotionally uplifted as a result!

I show people that they can actually dramatically change the taste of wine by directing energy into it; we're definitely affecting the very physics and chemistry of matter. I see that in the future, when research has been done, life force energy will be appreciated as being real ... and powerfully impacting physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and psychology. Our world will forever be different as people realize that their love has impact and their love has value.

Healing is a fascinating process which is generally very poorly understood. While many people think they can heal other people, it is of utmost importance to realize that all healing is self-healing. Ultimately, cells heal themselves. Cells desire to be well, and given the right energetic, emotional and nutritional environments, they will do just that. The body has an extraordinary intelligence and ability to heal itself. My favorite definition of a healer is someone who was sick and got well; a great healer is someone who was very sick and got well quickly.

Over the past eight years, I have taught QT to well over 4000 people. Without exception, professional practitioners of the various modalities have told me that this work can be seamlessly combined with what they know, and in most cases it has transformed their practice. This list includes chiropractors, osteopaths, physical therapists, acupuncturists, cranial sacral therapists, chi gung instructors, and reiki masters, to name but a few. Lay people discover an elegant and profound hands-on healing method that they can effectively use.

Which Rose Received Quantum-Touch?

Terri received a dozen roses on Monday as a gift. On Wednesday, a day that we have a full day of sessions, Terri brought my wife, Fern, one of the roses as a gift. Fern ran energy into a vase full of water, then placed the rose into the water and gave it one more boost. The following Sunday, when we held our regular services at four in the afternoon, Terri brought the remaining roses to place on our altar. Fern added her rose to the other roses. Fern's rose already stood out. By the end of the service, which was held outside under the sun, only Fern's rose remained upright. The other eleven were noticeably drooping.

Is Quantum-Touch Effective?

The body has an extraordinary ability to heal itself. Quantum-Touch helps to maximize the body's own capacity to heal. Quantum-Touch addresses the root cause of disease and creates the space for true healing to occur. Rather than just working on symptoms, Quantum-Touch will address the underlying cause of disease. We teach the concept of "body intelligence": the body knows how to bring itself back to 100% wholeness given the proper conditions.  

People have reported a wide range of organic conditions that have been helped through Quantum-Touch. To give some sense of the spectrum of things we have encountered, practitioners have reported varying degrees of success with pain relief, cancer, reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, reducing liver enzyme levels, infections, hydrocephalus, improved eyesight, and much, much more.

Quantum-Touch does not claim to treat or heal specific conditions; the effectiveness of Quantum-Touch is based on an individual's ability to heal and the results will vary. Ultimately if the body can, it will heal itself and Quantum-Touch may accelerate that process. 

We have compiled a list of commonly observed phenomena with Quantum-Touch:

Acceleration of the Healing Process


"Dr. Bombay"

"My partner and I have seen a spontaneous remission of primary liver cancer in a patient who was told she had 3 months left to live. That was 2 years ago. We have seen a spontaneous remission of breast cancer. I have used it in asthmatic flair-ups. We have seen reversal in the deformities of rheumatoid arthritis. We have used it in the treatment of panic attacks with success. We have used it on a client with incapacitating history of migraine headaches. We have a client who canceled her scheduled back surgery after being treated with Quantum-Touch. Soooooooo, yes, I can name people who have been 'cured' of serious illness. Joanne Boyer

Utilizing it in the operating room as a nurse anesthetist, with physiologic monitoring in place, I can give you oodles of documentation of the effectiveness of Quantum-Touch. This is one of the latest of my adventures. I was giving a fellow anesthetist a break recently, and the surgeon was 2 hours into trying to fix a tibial fracture that would not reduce. The OR nurses know first hand of my abilities, and smiled when I went into my 'voodoo' mode. Doing a vector analysis, I noted that the femur was also affected by the tibial fracture. By utilizing Quantum-Touch , the tibia realigned itself under fluoroscopic visualization to the amazement of the surgeon and the radiology technician. The returning anesthetist just smiled and nicknamed me 'Dr. Bombay' after the character in Bewitched."

Transformation of Structure

We have had occasional reports of severe long-term structural problems spontaneously transforming.

Multiple Sclerosis

Rebecca's leg had been misaligned for six years due to Multiple Sclerosis. The lower pictures show the improvement due to a single Quantum-Touch session by first day students in a workshop.

Structural Alignment

A Case Study on Scoliosis
by Richard Austin, certified Quantum-Touch Instructor

Gerry came to us with an extreme curvature of the spine known as scoliosis. Here is a visual account of the transformation of his spine in only one hour using Quantum-Touch, with NO physical manipulation! Remember, Quantum-Touch is not just about moving bones, but transforming structures on all levels. If such a transformation is happening physically, imagine what must be happening on the deeper cellular and molecular levels. Note, this healing took place in only one hour. Such rapid transformations happen frequently enough, but not every time. This is representative of the best case. Typically, it may take a few sessions to create this level of healing.

Movement of Bones into Correct Alignment

Everyone can facilitate the movement of bones within the first hours of training, which is astounding to most chiropractors. Bones glide into alignment within a few seconds or minutes and the practitioner need not understand anatomy, since body intelligence does the work and decides what should move. Spontaneous structural realignment causes no trauma, and the adjustments hold far better than when force is applied.

"Quantum-Touch is an easily learnable skill that can provide balance, healing, comfort, and postural realignment. -David Kamnitzer, D.C.

Bone Adjustment

Excellent results with babies, animals, and people under general anesthesia

The results we see with babies, pets, and people under general anesthesia suggest that the effectiveness of Quantum-Touch is not due to a psychological mechanism such as placebo or suggestion. In Pennsylvania, pulmonary blood gas levels during surgery were found to rise substantially if the patient received Quantum-Touch while under general anesthesia. Stories of people helping their pets are quite common.


In one well-documented case, Teddy (not his real name) was born 13 weeks premature with severe fetal alcohol syndrome. Teddy was also addicted to amphetamine and had severe facial dysmorphology. The prognosis was for severe retardation and institutionalization. A family that knew Quantum-Touch adopted him, and gave him sessions each day. At one year of age, he was tested and showed no facial dysmorphology, average height and weight, no sign of addiction, performing 100% developmentally with above average intelligence. Today Teddy is four years old. If a child falls or injures themselves at daycare, then Teddy is there hugging them or (as he says) "putting colors into them" to make them better. Before he was two, Teddy would walk up to family members, locate pain and run energy. He would stop and say the pain is gone and then meander upon his way. By three years of age he was playing with the " color of the light and exclaiming how hot his hands were." At night he would lay in bed and tell you what color light you were shining. As Teddy grows in skills and exposure to other influences, we stand aside watching where his journey takes him. Currently, he plays with his sixteen-year-old sister " seeing the light." He continues to nonchalantly use his energy upon those he perceives as being need. His perceptions of others and his compassion continue to develop. He has grown into an inquisitive well-centered human being. Terry Negri, Quantum-Touch Instructor




Inflammation due to injury is rapidly reduced.

Quantum-Touch works wonders post-surgically, as well as on trauma, burns, and even poison oak. One nurse told me that a physician asked her to stop using Quantum-Touch post-surgically since he could no longer predict how much pain medication to give the patient.

" In my vast experience, I've never seen anything to compare with the positive results of Quantum-Touch. It enabled affected team members to resume competitive play in a very brief period of time following an injury, and the improvements seemed to continue even after the therapeutic sessions."
Duane Garner, Coach UCSC Men's Basketball Team

Emotional and psychological conditions respond well to Quantum-Touch.

Panic attacks will usually conclude extremely rapidly, and I've heard reports of it working well with multiple personality disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Life-force energy can cause one to feel emotionally balanced and can bring about rapid and profound emotional shifts in a short amount of time. It is not uncommon for someone who is experience an extremely painful emotional state to be brought to a state of well being in session of 15 to 30 minutes.

Induction of sleep or deep meditation.

Within about 2-7 minutes, most people will start having their eyes moving involuntarily if they receive a session on their head while they are lying down. These people will often feel as if they had fallen asleep. I am told that there is nothing in psychological literature that would allow people to drift so quickly into sleep unless they were severely depressed or had had narcolepsy. Many people feel that they are moving into the fastest and deepest meditation of their lives. For others, it shows them what it would be like to meditate deeply.

Distant Healing

Dr Norman Shealy had devised a test he has used for decades on famous people that he termed world class healers. He found that some of them actually had the ability to dramatically affect a subject s EEG readout from a distance when the subject did not know that they were receiving a distant healing. After testing me, he tested his secretary, accountant, and some of his nurses.

Dr. Shealy wrote that Many of my staff were trained and we were able to demonstrate that Quantum-Touch, even without touching the patient(!), is capable of changing the electroencephalogram.

Ive repeated this test again with good results.

Reshaping bunions and healing deformed or broken bones.

We have seen this phenomenon happen occasionally. Timothy Hurst had a multiple fracture of his forearm. When his cast was removed, he had a large banana curve in his forearm. After one session, the banana curve almost completely straightened out. Rev. White Squirrel had been in an accident and later developed a seriously curved femur bone. Her doctor wanted to surgically cut the bone in half and remove a wedge and then set the bone at a 7-degree angle. After a single session, the bone somehow straightened out and now causes her no problems. From time to time we have also seen bunions reshaping themselves, and Ive heard a few other reports of spontaneous healing of broken bones.

We don't know what this work is not good for.

The Quantum-Touch Story  

presented by Richard Gordon, Founder of Quantum-Touch

Richard Gordon, founder of Quantum-Touch, best selling author and impassioned promoter of Life-Force Science Richard is dedicated to showing us all “ believers and skeptics alike - not only how powerful energy healing can be, but how easy it is to learn, regardless of your age, culture, religion or belief system.

Perhaps one of the most important lessons he teaches us is that everyone has the innate ability to help ourselves and others. It is not the practitioner who is the healer, but the person receiving the energy. Only we can heal ourselves, just as only we can digest our own food.
Richard Gordon

The Quantum Smile

Those of you who have experienced Quantum-Touch are familiar with the Quantum-Touch smile. It is a rare and fabulous smile of extraordinary well being. The pictures say it all! To see more Quantum-Touch Smiles,

Did That Really Happen?

To make a very long story very short, about 30 years ago I was concerned about my numerous symptoms of ill health, and my doctor told me to wait till something serious developed. I thought this advice made about as much sense as waiting for the engine to blow up before dealing with a grinding noise from under the hood.

I went to the Christos School of Natural Healing in Taos, New Mexico in the early '70s. We studied therapeutic massage, spiritual healing and herbal medicine. At that time I was introduced to Polarity Therapy. I eventually wrote a book, Your Healing Hands: A Polarity Experience, that's been a best seller and has been translated into nine languages.

Right around the time it was going into print, about 1978, I met a man named Robert Rasmussen. Bob Rasmussen had an extraordinary ability to do hands-on healing work. He worked with a woman who had a severe case of scoliosis, and I couldn't believe my eyes as I watched him touch her back. The bones spontaneously started to move. Her hips realigned themselves, the occipital ridge realigned, and within about 20 minutes, the scoliosis was about two-thirds straightened out.

I immediately reached a few conclusions: he had some extraordinary ability; I would never be able to do it; and no one else in the world would ever be able to do it.  I  then discovered that with great focus and concentration, I could. I apprenticed with him and was eventually asked to take over upon his retirement. That's how this work was born.

Why the name Quantum-Touch?

I call the work Quantum-Touch because of the awareness that we're actually dealing with the quantum, subatomic level of life. When Deepak Chopra wrote, " In order for consciousness to affect matter, it must affect it at a quantum or subatomic level."

We believe that what we're doing is affecting matter on that quantum, subatomic level and it works its way up through the atoms, the molecules, the cells, the tissue ... and then we see bones move. But because we have a very gross, dense awareness, we're not aware of all the millions of changes taking place within the cells or the mitochondria or even the cell changes in the tissue.

We see the bone move and we go, " Uh ... the bone moved." But we're actually affecting all the levels of your body healing itself. The bones will spontaneously glide into adjustment. But they're the very last thing that's changed. Everything else has been affected before that. The principle at work is really very simple. By doing the breathing and body awareness exercises, the practitioner lifts his or her vibration to a very high pitch. Then by holding their hand over the affected area, the body responds by doing its own healing. But you don't really heal other people. All you do is hold the space, hold the resonance for them to heal themselves.

Has Quantum-Touch been formally tested?

In my efforts to validate hands-on healing, I met with Dr. Elmer Green, considered by many to be the father of biofeedback. Dr. Green had been aware of my work for the last 20 years through my first book, and was enthusiastic when I let him know about my new work I had named Quantum-Touch.

Thanks to his suggestion, within two weeks I was on a flight to Springfield, Missouri to see Dr. Norman Shealy. Dr. Shealy was trained as a neurosurgeon, is the author of numerous books, is the founding President of the American Holistic Medical Association and was the doctor who tested, introduced and taught classes with Dr. Carolyn Myss. Being quite the skeptic, it seems appropriate that he lives in Missouri.

When I arrived, Dr. Shealy asked me to work on members of his staff. One woman had shoulder pain, another back pain, and a third had neck pain. These were all relieved in less than ten minutes each.  Dr. Shealy then decided it was time to put this technique to a bigger test. After I explained to him that each person has the ability to hold a resonance that can allow bones to spontaneously glide back into alignment with only a light touch, he led me to a room where a 88 year old woman was in a great deal of pain suffering from osteoporosis. One of her hips was massively higher than the other, and she could barely walk. There were three physicians in the room, and they were taking her history for about thirty minutes.

When it was time to demonstrate what I do, I asked the elderly woman to stand up and I gently placed my hands on her hips with absolutely no pressure, and started to run the energy. Running energy involves the use of specific breathing and body awareness exercises to raise one s vibration. This energy has been described by numerous cultures for thousands of years “ it is most commonly called prana, chi or ki.  In about 10 minutes the woman s hips had completely evened out and she could now walk without pain.

I explained that when the body receives a high vibration, it responds in whatever way it chooses in order to accelerate the healing process. Quantum biologist, Glen Rein, Ph.D. from NY has found that healers were capable of affecting the very winding of DNA. In order to accomplish this, healing must first begin on a quantum or subatomic level and work its way though the rest of the body.

Dr. Shealy had a history of testing what he termed world class healers like Olga Worall, and he found that some of them could actually affect brain wave patterns at a distance. So while I was in his clinic, he wanted to see if I could do it too. He was somewhat delighted that I was able to profoundly affect brain waves patterns, but what really amazed him was that all of his staff members, who I had trained, were also able to affect EEG readings. Isn t it great, I told him that your secretary, your accountant and one of your nurses all happen to be ˜ world class healers . You see, we are all truly connected, and it s not just some sort of new age pep talk.

Quantum-Touch is unique in how quickly and how powerfully lay people as well as professionals learn to do healing work. When Dr. Shealy tested Quantum-Touch, he wanted to see how it worked on his most difficult chronic pain patients with 20 and 30 years of constant chronic pain. These were people who had not been helped by any traditional or non-traditional therapy. I taught his staff to use Quantum-Touch and we gave these patients group-healing sessions. A week after I returned home, Dr. Shealy called me to tell me that the 30-70% pain relief his patients experienced from a single session had lasted over a week. This impressed him, and those who know Dr. Shealy say that he is not easily impressed. Dr. Norman Shealy wrote the foreword of my book, and now includes Quantum-Touch as part of a course for graduate students at Greenwich University.

Energy really does follow thought. Our love has more impact than anyone knows, and when you learn to direct the life-force energy, the possibilities are truly extraordinary.

DNA, molecules, cells, tissue, organs and even the position of bones all respond to the powerful vibration of our love as expressed through the life-force energy that comes through our hands. Hands-on healing is real, natural, and an easily learned, basic human skill that clearly shows us that our love is far more wondrous and powerful than any of us know.

You say our Love has impact , what do you mean by Love?

(Excerpt from page 32 of " Quantum-Touch:  The Power to Heal," 2006  revised edition)

Healing work is all about love, and the practitioner learns to hold a vibratory field of this love.  To clarify my terms, when I say love, I am not speaking in the traditional sense of the sort of love that a mother has for a child, a husband for a wife, or about a winged cherub with a bow and arrow.  I m speaking of a more basic form of love “ one that is more innate and intrinsic.

Have you ever watched children play?  They seem to always say, Watch me! So whether you are from the child s culture or any other culture, whether you speak the language or not, if you sit there simply watching that child, he or she will feel loved.  Simply giving your attention to a child is automatically experienced as an act of loving.  This is what I call nonenculturated or nonassociative love because it has nothing to do with your background, your race, religion, politics, or other beliefs you may hold. Quantum-Touch is about being present, which is an expression of your essence.

I would call this kind of love preconditional and believe that your very nature and essence is made up of the fabric of love.  Whether you believe it is there or not (in my opinion) is irrelevant.  This love is the essential nature of your being that comes through your hands regardless of your mood.  Your fundamental, instinctive, and most basic energy is that of love.  You don t have to work at it “ it is who you are.  As a rock does not have to try to be more rock-like and water does not have to try to be wetter, we do not have to try to have more essence of love.  We can, however, endeavor to acknowledge how much love there really is.

Intent is something that happens so automatically, most people just miss it.  When you simply walk across the room, you already generated the intention to do so.  You see, love and intention are among the most natural qualities we have.  If you are reading this book to learn to do healing, you already have sufficient love and intention to do a wonderful job.

How Easy is Quantum-Touch to Learn?

I teach people some very simple body awareness exercises and some very simple breathing exercises. When the breathing and the body awareness exercises are linked together, they are running life force energy in a terrific, powerful way.

This is not a hard skill.
This is an extremely easy thing that people can do.

I am confident that everyone will be able see that they can move bones into alignment with a light touch, on the first day of class. I get a lot of joy watching people measure a standing persons hips, clearly identify that one hip is over an inch higher on one side, then moments later, just touching the hips, become astounded that the bones just melted back into place. By the way, since no force is used, the adjustments tend to last a very long time or may even be permanent. Since no invasive force is generated, the body does not push against the change.

Can children learn Quantum-Touch?

Children just love this work, and I often have kids in my classes. It really seems to be something that boosts a childs self-esteem to see that they can do something so completely amazing. I want the kids to know that the world is a magical place and they are fully capable doing wonderful things.

How does Quantum-Touch work with other healing modalities?

One of the unique qualities of Quantum-Touch is that it elegantly works in conjunction with any other healing modality, and is a great stand alone therapy as well. Chiropractors tell me that it is an advanced form of chiropractic since bones glide back into alignment with only a light touch. Acupuncturists, naturopaths, osteopaths, physical therapists, Reiki masters, chi gung, cranial sacral practitioners, ¦ you name it, they all tell me that this work transforms their practice. Quantum-Touch allows people to easily hold an extremely high vibration in their hands through breathing and body awareness exercises. This can cause a field of energy that can profoundly accelerate healing in organs, glands and tissues of the body; pain and inflammation are rapidly reduced as a consequence of the healing.
