“In truth, you really cannot heal anybody other than yourself” – Richard Gordon, Quantum Touch Founder
What is Quantum Touch?
Quantum Touch is a healing technique that utilises what’s referred to as Life Force Energy (also known as Chi, Prana, Oregone etc, in other disciplines and cultures).
It’s marketed as one of the more pragmatic approaches to healing, the rids of all the fluff and gets straight into the actual techniques and results.
It’s been said that it can realign bones on the spot and help with chronic pains. It’s one of the few healing techniques that has shown some surprising results through studies.
Quantum Touch was founded by Richard Gordon, who at the age of 16 had his world-view shaken up from visiting the healer Rev Harold Plume. Being a strong non-believer, Richard wouldn’t subscribe to anything that wasn’t confirmed by ardent studies.
Having scratched the first layer of resistance, Richard ventured out to seek more information. He went to study at Christos School of Natural Healing in Taos, and soon found himself opening up to new beliefs while erasing the old ones.
He was then introduced to Polarity Therapy which led him to write his first book, called Your Healing Hands: The Polarity Experience.
At around the same time, Richard met a man who would soon become his mentor: Bob Rasmussen. Bob had an extraordinary ability to heal people, and would straighten out spines with all sorts of problems such as Scolios, by a mere slight touch.
The immediate conclusion drawn was that Bob Rasmussen was a man of talent, an uncanny healing ability which he was born with, that no one else possessed.
Richard would later on be mentored by Bob, and found out that what he could do, anyone could do.
As time passed on and Bob retired, Richard was asked to take over. The apprenticeship was over, and Quantum Touch was born.
The following years Richard spent his time refining the techniques, simplifying everything from an esoteric practice, to a pragmatic technique.
How Quantum Touch Works
While there are several techniques for Quantum Touch (The Power to Heal, Quantum Touch 2.0, Quantum Touch Supercharge etc), the basic technique is a combination of:
Breath is going to be what we focus on during the process. Awareness will be the sensations generated through the guided breath. And intent will be where we aim the energy to go (in this case, through our hands).
Start off by breathing in through a count of 4, and breathing out through a count of 4.
As you do this, put your awareness on your feet. Now imagine and SENSE that you’re pulling energy from your feet, all the way up to your head through a count of 4. As you breathe out through a count of 4, have the energy go from your head, our through the arms and hands, into whoever you’ve put your hands on.
That’s the basic technique.
If you’ve got issues sensing the awareness, that’s fine, it’s an easily trained ability. Sensations appear subtle at first, but become increasingly noticeable the more you do this.
The best way to understand what the sensations are is by rubbing your hands together, then stop, close your eyes, and feel the tingling between your fingers. No need to interpret it as anything esoteric, it’s simply your awareness of a tingling sensation.
Now as you do the in-breath through the count of 4, put the same awareness on your feet, guided all the way up to your head during the count. Then count out to 4 while going from your head, out the arms and then hands. Sensations is likely to be very subtle at first, but that’s fine. Keep practicing!
I recommend that you try this technique out on yourself and others. Check your (or someone else’s) pain scale from 1-10 (1 being minimal, 10 being very painful) and see if you can create a change.
There’s a LOT more to the technique, and while you can easily verify it for yourself through the basic technique, I strongly recommend that you get the book to learn more about it and hone your skills.

I recommend that you start with the first book, Quantum Touch – The Power To Heal, and then move on to the next one Quantum Touch 2.0 – The New Human. The latter will teach a hands-free healing technique that as surprising applications.
If you’re interested in understanding the phenomenon more in-depth, I recommend that you check out The Secret Nature of Matter.
This book may bend your perception on reality, just as it did for me.
