Quantum-Touch is a vibrational touch therapy that incorporates touch, breath work, and body awareness meditations. 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.
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.
