New to Quantum Touch?

Everyone has memories of wanting to reach out and give comfort to someone in distress. Have you ever felt helpless when you saw someone you love in pain? Quantum Touch may well be the answer for any similar situation. Quantum Touch can definitely relieve pain and effect healing.
Quantum-Touch is one of many modalities of naturopathic or energy healing. It employs the use of hands-on healing that literally must be seen to be believed. It engages a person's Life Force Energy to promote optimal wellness. What we call Life Force Energy is also known as chi  in the Chinese culture and named prahna in ancient Sanskrit documents. All these words try to tell us something we all intuit about whatever is alive. Quantum-Touch facilitators learn how to direct, amplify, and focus this energy, for a wide range of benefits with surprising and extraordinary positive results.

To see Quantum Touch at work, feel free to attend one of our Healing Circles and decide for yourself if you are interested to learn more.

How New Is Quantum Touch?

The term Quantum Touch was coined by Richard Gordon in his book "Quantum Touch, The Power To Heal" published in 1999. While studying polarity therapy in the early 1970's Gordon became acquainted with the work of Robert Rasmussen, who had an extraordinary ability to do hands-on healing.

The art of energy healing has deep roots and reaches way back in the story about humans. Many cultures throughout the ages record gifted persons performing a wide variety of healing work using life force energy using differing names. In Western culture, knowledge of the natural force of healing within the human person can be traced back to the first century BC in the person of the Hippocrates. See side panel.

Quantum Touch Treatments Explained

Quantum Touch practitioners employ breathing and body awareness techniques to help focus the Life Force Energy, and in doing so raise their own vibrations. By placing their hands above or on the body of the person at the location of the pain or discomfort, that person's body entrains to the raised vibrations, thus promoting the body to heal itself. The time it takes for healing to occur varies widely: some visible changes are sometimes noticed in a matter of minutes, others can take longer even an hour or more. It is not uncommon for people to call back in a day or two and report positive experiences. More serious medical conditions may require repeated treatments that vary in length from hours to weeks or months. A treatment usually is a very relaxing experience. At times pain may flare up and then recede while the person's own innate healing abilities restore wellness to the body and to the emotions.

Who Can Learn Quantum Touch?

People of all ages can learn to do Quantum - Touch. Energy healing is an innate ability all people have in common.

The Alternative Medicine Magazine       described Quantum Touch as
"a significant breakthrough in
hands on healing."

Hippocrates , a Greek physician born in 460 BC, was known as the greatest physician of his time, and became known as the founder of modern medicine:

"The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well".
