Richard Gordon is recognized as one of the pioneers in the field of energy healing. Today, as the founder of Quantum-Touch, Richard is an internationally acclaimed speaker at conferences, medical centers, chiropractic colleges, and holistic health institutes.
"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. It is an innate ability we all have."
In a nut shell, it works by the practitioner using a series of techniques to help focus and amplify life-force energy, thus raising their vibration level or resonance. The person being treated will then naturally entrain to this higher level and their own body will do whatever it deems useful to cause healing to occur. THEY are the healers, as Richard Gordon says in his book "Quantum-Touch The Power To Heal."
When the bones moves back into a correct alignment, they tend to hold far longer than any adjustments done by any other profession. Since it was their own body that "chose" to put the bones back into place, their body tends to maintain the adjustments better than when the adjustments were forced. The process is so fluid that the bones seem to glide or "melt" back into alignment. Like the tip of an ice berg, the movement of skeletal structure is only the most visible and obvious aspect of this work.
When energy is run into the body, it affects matter on a subatomic or quantum level and works its way up through the cells, nerves and muscle tissues of the body. Eventually it affects something that is highly observable- the bones. Before the bones move, there is no doubt thousands of smaller healings take place.
Over the years, Quantum Touch has proven itself to be highly useful in organic and systemic conditions, conditions involving musculoskeletal problems, trauma, pain, and inflammation due to injury or surgery. Overall, the process tends to substantially accelerate the healing process.
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 involves resonance, intention, attention, breathing and innate intelligence. Using our intention and attention in conjunction with breathing 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 higher vibration in their hands. The person receiving the session will eventually match the vibration of the practitioner's hands.
The client remains fully clothed and can sit where they are, in the practitioner's office or place of work. Or they can lie on a therapy bed if they want to.
If the client has specific issues, (injury, pain, etc.) then that is where the work is concentrated. Hands are placed lightly over the area to be treated and then, if and when the pain or sensation moves (which is often the case) the hands will follow. In this way the pain is 'chased' until it's gone completely or the session time is up.
Alternatively, if there are no specific issues a full body treatment can be given. In this case usually on a therapy bed, a series of hand positions will be used until something comes up to be treated e.g. Pain, Emotion or other sensation somewhere in the body, or the session time is up. Almost invariably these sessions result in beautiful feelings of deep relaxation and love.
Typically the effects carry on for 72 hours after the treatment until advanced techniques have been learned by the practitioner - after which the accelerated healing process can continue for up to 6 days.
