How Did Quantum-Touch Get Started?
Our roots began in the early 1970’s when Richard Gordon, founder of Quantum-Touch ®, attended the Christos School of Natural Healing in Taos, New Mexico, where he studied therapeutic massage, spiritual healing, and herbal medicine. While attending school, Richard was amazed when he felt energy (universal life force energy) around his hands. A few weeks later he was introduced to Polarity Therapy, which led to a wide range of further discoveries about energy, and he eventually wrote a book, Your Healing Hands: The Polarity Experience.
In 1978, right around the time Your Healing Hands was going into print, Richard met Robert Rasmussen, who appeared to have an extraordinary ability to do energy healing. While observing Robert work, Richard initially concluded that Robert had some supernatural ability and no one else in the world would ever be able to do it. However, after apprenticing with Robert, Richard realized that he could also work with the life force energy. Eventually Richard was asked to take over upon Robert’s retirement and that's how Quantum-Touch was born.
Jennifer Taylor, CEO of Quantum-Touch, shares a similar tale. In 2002, she attended the Maui Academy of Healing Arts and like Richard, she discovered that she could feel the universal life force energy emanating from people while practicing massage. She became fascinated by energy healing and soon thereafter she met Richard Gordon at a Quantum-Touch lecture on Maui. Through a series of amazing synchronicities, and a leap of faith, she moved to Santa Cruz, CA and began her journey as the “Chief Magical Officer” of Quantum-Touch.
Today, over 150 Quantum-Touch instructors teach Quantum-Touch around the world, both in-person and virtually. Our instructors hold workshops in many languages, including Chinese, French, and even Arabic. Our purpose is to teach and promote the Quantum-Touch techniques as a way to inspire people to discover the extraordinary healing power of love.
