Quantum-Touch is a vibrational touch therapy that incorporates touch, breath work, and body awareness meditations. It is the most recent to show up and take off across the US. Its concepts are closely related to polarity therapy. It is primarily a light-touch energy therapy, but it is secondarily promoted as a therapy that helps bones to spontaneously adjust to their proper alignment. Richard Gordon developed the Quantum-Touch therapy and published a book on this therapy, Quantum-Touch: The Power to Heal. Personally I found this modality to be an extension of his previous modality “Polarity” of which I became certified many years ago. The Quantum-Touch healing process involves the practitioner “running energy” into the recipient’s body. Often, practitioners employ a technique that is known as “sandwiching” or “the hand sandwich.” Sandwiching means that the practitioner will use his or her hands to sandwich the part of the recipient’s body that is to be treated. One hand will be placed on one side of the body part and the other hand will be placed on the other side. Another technique that is used for “running energy” into very small areas is to create a tripod using the thumb, forefinger, and middle finger. This is meant to help get the practitioner’s hands closer to the source of pain. Advanced techniques used in this system include harmonic toning, spinning the chakras, structural alignment, and distant healing.
The Quantum-Touch method requires that practitioners learn a series of meditations to shift their state of consciousness and increase the level of their own body awareness. Beyond this, practitioners learn to use a number of specific breathing techniques. While there is no philosophical or religious orientation attached to this method, people are encouraged to use Quantum-Touch in conjunction with their own belief structure or spirituality.
The principles behind this Quantum-Touch involve resonance, intention, attention, breath and innate body intelligence. Using our intention and attention in conjunction with breath and various meditations, practitioners are able to profoundly shift the vibration of their hands. When two things vibrate at different frequencies, the law of resonance requires that either the lower frequency comes up, the upper frequency goes down, or that they meet in the middle. Practitioners simply learn to hold a high vibration in their hands. The person receiving the session will eventually match the vibration of the practitioner’s hands.
Quantum-Touch like Polarity Therapy relies on innate body intelligence to do the work. For example, practitioners do not have to know where bones need to move, any more than we need to understand how our stomach digests food. As in Polarity Therapy, the person’s innate body intelligence directs the healing.
Quantum-Touch is a method of hands-on healing that actually must be seen to be believed. With only a light touch, you can observe bones spontaneously adjusting into their proper alignment. Beyond this, all healing is accelerated. By learning to activate the power of Quantum-Touch, you invoke the secret of resonance. From the DNA to the bones, all cells and systems effortlessly respond to the resonance of your love.
