How Does Quantum-Touch Energy Healing Work?


Healing is a fascinating process which is generally very poorly understood. Although it may be tempting to believe that we can heal other people, it is of utmost importance to realize that all healing is self-healing. The body has an extraordinary intelligence and ability to heal itself. Given the right energetic, emotional, nutritional, and spiritual environments, the natural state of the body is perfect health. Our 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.

Although all healing is self healing, we can assist other people heal with their own healing process.

Quantum-Touch uses life-force energy (known as chi in Chinese and prana in Sanskrit) to facilitate healing. The Quantum-Touch techniques teach us how to focus and amplify life-force energy by combining various breathing and body awareness exercises.

Life-force energy is an effective tool for healing because of the principles of resonance and entrainment. In physics, entrainment theory is the process where two vibrating objects, vibrating at different speeds, start to vibrate at the same speed when energy is transferred between the two objects. Entrainment shows up in chemistry, nerology, biology, medicine, and more. For example, crickets will chirp in unison and fireflies will flash at the same time.

Using the Quantum-Touch techniques, we can create a high frequency of life-force energy. If we place this field of high energy around an area of pain, stress, inflammation, or disease, the body can entrain to the higher frequency, thus amplifying the body's ability to heal itself.

Quantum-Touch actually provides healing energy for the practitioner as well as for the person seeking healing. Using the Quantum-Touch techniques, the practitioner can hold an extraordinarily high vibration; this high vibration not only influences the client, but also provides healing energy for the practitioner. Rather than becoming drained form doing healing work, the practitioner will most often feel emotionally uplifted as a result!


In the Quantum-Touch Level 1 workshop, we demonstrate how people can actually dramatically change the taste of wine by directing energy into it! We're definitely affecting the very physics and chemistry of matter.

We believe that serious research into life-force energy will inevitably transform our conception of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, psychology and botany leading to an entire new branch of science. Including the concept of "consciousness" or Life-Force Energy in science will not only change the sciences forever, but even more importantly, our world will forever be different as people realize that their love has impact and their love has value.

Professional practitioners of various modalities have told us 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?

how effective

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 s tood 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.

More from Richard Gordon, Founder of Quantum-Touch

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.

Some Extraordinary Benefits of Quantum-Touch

Benefits image

The body has an extraordinary ability to heal itself and 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 improvement 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.

"Dr. Bombay"

Joanne Boyer

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.

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.

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

Movement of Bones into Correct Alignment



Click to enlarge

Everyone can facilitate the movement of bones within the first hours of training, which is astounding to most chiropractors.

Bone Adjustment

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.

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.

Quantum-Touch Assists in Dogs Miraculous Healing

Small Kyla

Kyla, an eleven-year-old mix-shepherd, had developed a rash upon her forepaws; she had also developed several cysts over the years. She was aging. After taking her to two veterinarians who offered nothing that helped. I thought, time to take matters into my own hands.

A friend had suggested a detoxification protocol. I gave her a few droppers full of the medicine over a few nights. Initially, she was fine, so I continued. One night within forty minutes of lapping the remedy out of her bowl, however, she was whimpering and shaking uncontrollably. Those brown eyes that had regarded me with such complete trust were begging for help. Tremors took over body. The simultaneously low and high-pitched cry that came from her was painful to witness. I wrapped her in blankets at the foot of my bed, said a small prayer that this was a mere aberration and attempted to sleep.

In the morning, Kyla had not moved. Her eyes, exhausted and pleading, were outlined in a film of pain. She tried to get up with difficulty, her back legs not immediately receiving the synaptic message.

By night I had to carry her outside to go to the bathroom. Her body limp in my arms. I noticed that on her own she could no longer prop herself up, but rather collapsed onto the ground. One of the largest cysts on her body had dissolved, the rash on her paws had diminished, but she still wasnt eating and her vitality was dwindling.

The second morning, I had to carry her to her water bowl. Her body was hot to the touch; fever had consumed her. She no longer looked like she inhabited her body, but rather was tethered to it, waiting for release.

With despair setting in a miracle arrived, a friend directed me to Kim Luchau for a Quantum-Touch Healing session for Kyla. Kim asked her husband, Mark, who also practices Quantum-Touch, to help with this session, too. Knowing that hes great with animals, she felt he'd enjoy this opportunity. While driving to the session, I peered through the rearview mirror and noticed Kyla had propped herself up for the first time in three days. When she met my gaze in the mirror, I felt her confirming her openness to this session. This touched me. After we arrived, I carried Kyla from the car onto a quilt for Kim and Mark to work with her outside.

Kim and Mark reverently attuned their focus to Kyla, and even asked me to participate. They touched her along her spine and around her neck. Kyla accepted our touch. They began sweeping and breathing with Kylas clear opening to their loving touch. Kim reflected, Within a short time I began hearing messages for Kate coming from Kyla. It was as if I was being asked to speak to Kate for Kyla.

I can clearly remember the first words Kim spoke: Kyla does not want you to worry if it is her time to go. She wants you to know you will never be separate.

Kyla lifted her head and looked right at me; I simultaneously received her look and started bawling. Kyla placed her head down, closed her eyes and relaxed into her healing. The floodgates opened.

She has been with you since birth, Kim shared. She has been a spirit guide for you, but you couldnt feel her, so she incarnated, so you would know and feel her.

The depth of the love that Kim was confirming for me rocked my core. I always knew Kyla and I had a bond beyond comprehension, but to have that boundless, unconditional love confirmed outside of myself was humbling beyond words.

She wants you to know, that she will make sure, you will always feel her. Kim continued, Kyla has had a hard life, and you have loved her deeply, and she feels that. She wishes that you would open to receive the love she has to give you, as you so readily give to her. I felt the searing pain of truth.

She says though, Kim chuckled, that you try and do the best you can. As the session continued, I noticed that Kyla was no longer tremoring. Kim and Mark continued breathing and sweeping, while also contacting and clearing the communication from Kylas cranial nerves to her sacrum. I could feel for the first time since she took the medicine her body was at ease; Kim remarked at one point that Kyla had shifted into processing her birth trauma. And I feel like she is choosing, Kim continued.

Yes, I agreed. No more needed to be said. We would wait and see if Kyla choose to stay. The session wound its way into a deep, peaceful place. Kim and Mark had graciously worked on Kyla for an hour. At the sessions end, Kylas eyes brightened and she looked lighter and more vital. On the way home, a mere fifteen minutes after the session, I pulled the car over for Kyla to relieve herself. I already noticed a difference in her stance. She even walked over to guinea grass and started to chew. I couldnt believe my eyes: I hadnt seen her chew in almost four days. Later in the afternoon, I realized Kyla was no longer hot. Her fever was gone. When I carried her down the steps outside, it struck me: her body was heavier. I started to cry because I realized Kyla had chosen to stay.

Over the next five days, Kyla received a series of acupuncture sessions. It is my belief that the QT session served as the crossroads of Kylas spirit. Each day after that session, I literally watched Kylas spirit pour back into form. Two days after the session, she was eating meager amounts. After four days, she was eating rice and broth and could walk on her own for fifteen minutes. On day five, she wagged her tail; a sight I thought I would never see again. Within seven days her full appetite had returned, all of her systems were functioning with normalcy, seventy-five percent of her cysts were gone, her rash was gone and the skin of her forepaws was healthy; we were back to taking our daily forty-five minute walks along Kauais Kealia beach. Everyone who saw her was in awe. I have never witnessed the miracle of love the way I watched my dog re-incarnate. The healing and the messaging that we shared through Kylas Quantum-Touch session has altered me in more ways than I can describe, and it has granted Kyla her life back.

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."

Other applications for Quantum-Touch

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, “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.”

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.
