With 37 years of experience in the field of energy medicine, Richard Gordon is the best-selling author of ‘Quantum-Touch: The Power to Heal’, now published in 17 languages, and ‘Your Healing Hands – The Polarity Experience’, available in 10 languages. I had the privilege to speak with him on Quantum Touch and yoga.
Richard founded Quantum-Touch organization more than 16 years ago. The organization currently has more than 1,400 certified practitioners in 50+ countries around the globe. Their vision and mission is to help improve the health and quality of life for many people using simple, easy to learn energy healing techniques. With his expertise and passion for sharing the message about hands-on healing, Richard has traveled around the globe to speak at medical centers, conferences, and chiropractic colleges. He was faculty at Heartwood Institute and the Holistic Health Institute.
What is Quantum Touch? Quantum-Touch is a method of natural healing that works with the Life Force Energy of the body to promote optimal wellness. Life Force Energy, also known as ‘chi’ in Chinese and ‘prana’ in Sanskrit, is the flow of energy that sustains all living beings. Quantum-Touch teaches us how to focus, amplify, and direct this energy, for a wide range of benefits with surprising and often extraordinary results. Quantum-Touch has been shown to reduce back pain, realign structure, balance organs, glands and systems, reduce muscle aches, heal injuries, and heal burns.
I asked Richard how Quantum Touch is different than Reiki. He says in Quantum Touch there is no attunement, no symbols or specific hand positions. You simply activate your ‘chi’ or ‘prana’ energy through breathing and lay hands on where the issue presents itself. In doing so you amplify the life force energy.
The aims of Quantum Touch are very similar to those of yoga. “It is time to discover your true nature. By using body awareness and breathing everyone can raise their chi/prana/ love energies.” stated Richard. By raising your life force energy you can release the emotional causes of illness – suppressed anger and emotions. In fact, Richard said that Quantum Touch and Kundalini Yoga have similar ways of raising the life force energy.
Richard’s new research is stretching into the Art of Youthing. He maintains that not only are suppressed emotions causing illness – they are contributing to aging. You can stop the aging entropy by raising your life force energy while maintaining a good diet and lifestyle. Richard emphasizes that by lifting you life energy “love becomes a real force.”
