A message to the message board community from the staff at Quantum-Touch, Inc.
Quantum-Touch, Inc. provides the message board as a means for like minded people to communicate about Quantum-Touch in a safe and respectful manner, share experiences, and techniques. Quantum-Touch, Inc. is happy to provide the message board to visitors and registered users free of a monthly charge to enhance your experience with Quantum-Touch!
As stated in our terms of service, viewing of and/or participation on the board is a privilege. Quantum-Touch, Inc. reserves the right to modify the board and/or member access at any time and at our discretion.
We have recently removed several discussions regarding Quantum-Touch policies and/or other topics that people expressed concerns about. Although we support the free flow of ideas, we feel that the nature and tone of these topics were not only abusive to message board members, but also to the Quantum-Touch staff and organization. We no longer feel that discussions concerning QT policies are appropriate for the message board and encourage people to call or email the office if they would like to discuss Quantum-Touch policies. Also, we feel that some board users have abused the terms of service and we will be moving forward with access removal. If the abuse continues, we will consider disabling certain sections of the message board entirely.
Please also refer to the Quantum-Touch Code of Ethics. Failure to adhere to the Code of Ethics is grounds for permanent decertification.
Please remember that the board serves many people in our community, both those visiting the board and those who are registered users, and we encourage people to review the terms of service and to participate in a respectful manner.
Not only are they taking posts down that they don't like but they are threatening the dreaded decertification if you don't take the hint.
They actually had the nerve to quote Ghandi--
Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors. Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny. ~ Gandhi
I created Binaural Theta Healing Meditation which is a music meditation with binaural beat technology to bring you to a deep theta brainwave state. Theta brainwaves are often associated with powerful meditations, energy healings, and manifestations. Other benefits of Theta brainwave patterns are deep relaxation, improved sleep, and lower stress.
You can listen to a preview here: http://wizardnow.com/muze/btm.html
My first CD was call Shaman's Elemental Journey. Listen to samples at: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/wizardnow
I used some excellent drumming samples and lots of ambient nature sounds. It's a great experience.
I truly resonated with using sounds for healing. (Pun intended) I started creating music to be played while I was doing a QT session. I would start by writing down my intention. Then using my computer and midi keyboard, I would play what ever came into my head. Often, it is an amazing process.
I researched the different aspects of vibrations and brainwave frequencies. I then targeted different brainwave patterns for the desired effect. I took a course from Jonathan Goldman and learned his incredible toning techniques. My favorite quote from him is "Frequency to intent equals healing". I joined the Sound Healers Association http://www.soundhealersassociation.org/member/show/2023
I soon was creating so much music; I need new outlets for my meditation music. I started selling it on my webpage http://music.wizardnow.com/. You could hear samples and download music from directly from the site. It was such a thrill when I sold my first download online. I had just turned 57 and sold my first music online!
It has been a few years now and I have music on iTunes, Amazon. I recently completed a couple of Music Video Meditations - one called Shaman's Dream http://www.lulu.com/product/dvd/shamans-dream/6433735 and another called Transformation http://wizardnow.com/muze/transdvd.html. I call them open eye meditations. I use animation and fractals for the visuals and combine them with some of my music.
Working with sound has definitely been healing for me.
I hope to post more soon about individual sound healing projects and brainwave entrainment.
Thanks for listening.

Let me state for the record that I can recommend the book Quantum Touch but, no longer will I recommend the company or new work by the author.
One positive outcome of the Quantum Touch organization 'going down in flames' is that I was inspired to create my own modality.

Universal Energy and the Stillness of Now
I've received only limited business or clients from the QT listing in the last 5 years. That would be the only reason to continue with their certification program. QT is not a household name. Hardly anyone has ever heard of it. It's a hard sell. I've done numerous free or low cost demo's at various events and fairs. I seldom get a call back for an actual session.
I can't deal with Richard Gordon's attitude and poor business sense. Even though he may say that he is not responsible for Quantum Touch's business plan. He is a major part of the problem. Time to move on and stop wasting energy trying to get the company realize their mistakes. My certification as a practitioner does not expire even though Quantum-Touch decided to change the rules and break our contract. It is their loss.

I’d like to share with all of you one of my “life experiences.”
Many years ago, as computers were first coming into their own, there was a great lack of knowledge about connecting computer peripherals – printers, scanners, monitors, cameras and such.
A friend of mine in a far away country, recognizing this opportunity, began to conduct “Printer Connection” workshops. For less than $300 you could attend his class, and in less than 2 days you could learn how to connect your own printer (or someone else’s), whether it was a serial, parallel, or usb connection. He was very good at it, and soon many people were “connecting.” He also saw that there was a need for many people to learn this skill set quickly, and his time was limited. So many needs and so little time. What to do?
He developed a system whereby a workshop attendee could attend repeat workshops, pay a one-time $100 fee, and become qualified as a “Printer Connection” Practitioner, with his blessings. Good deal. The students attended extra workshops. He even gave them a half-price special for repeat workshops. Some Practitioners charged for this printer installation service, and some offered it freely and gladly, especially for friends.
He then figured out that if he were to require attendance at a few more workshops (and another one-time $100 fee), he could certify his student as a “Printer Workshop” Instructor, and the new P/W Instructor could then hold workshops for other students, collect $300 from each one, and send him 10% of the fees collected. The money would come rolling in.
But gradually, the flaws in his plan began to appear. There were expenses. And not that much money.
Over a period of time he saw his classes dwindling. And those of his Instructors, as well. Computers were becoming mainstream and people were reading the Owner’s Manual.
He looked and looked for a way to increase the cash flow. He hired several management consultants. And by his own admission, they all cost him a lot of money.
Finally, he tried a new consultant who convinced him that he could increase his cash flow with this consultant’s new program, called “Selling By Taking.” The premise was simple. Instead of giving support to all of his Practitioners and Instructors, he could “take” money from them by decreeing an annual renewal fee to maintain their certification. What a stroke of genius. So what if they didn’t care for it. Progress is often unpopular.
So what if they rebelled and he lost half of them. That would still leave him a six-figure income every year, for doing nothing but decreeing: “Selling By Taking.” Brilliant.
Besides, many would remain loyal. It’s not a question of ethics or morality – this is business.
Well, some of his fans left him, moving on to bigger and better things – “if not this, something better.” Some refused to give in to extortion and were “unplugged.” And some willingly paid the fee so they could continue to install printers.
And they all lived happily ever after.
What does this have to do with my life’s experience?
Well, as a computer specialist, I had quickly learned to install printers and other peripherals with a minimum of time. I could teach people to do that with their eyes closed and even over the phone, in a matter of minutes rather than days. Just couldn’t justify charging them $300, much less taking 2 days of their time. And if the occasional person wants some help with their computer, I’m still willing to give it.
Yours in Truth,
G L Arnold

I recently discovered this article about Richard Gordon and Quantum Touch. I don't know what really happened because I wasn't there but, there are plenty of conflicting stories from both sides. I do know that Quantum Touch or Regenesis or whatever you want to call it works. When you try to trademark or copyright energy healing, that seems to limit the whole concept. We are talk about Universal Life Energy - try taking that to the bank or filing it away in a book.
Regenesis Healing developed in the early sixties by Robert Rasmusson A TRUE STORYBy: Jannette
Regenesis Healing, developed in the early sixties by the World-Famous Alternative Healer Robert Rasmusson. Regenesis is a holistic therapy which brings healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Due to a special exercise the energy will flow through the practitioner's hands whenever the hands are placed on, or held near a potential recipient, who can be clothed.
Some teachings stress the importance of the practitioner's intention or presence in this process, while others claim that the energy is drawn by the recipient's injury to activate or enhance the natural healing processes. Going further, Regenesis energy is "intelligent", to activate the Healing proces.
With Regenesis, treatments can be also initiated from a distance. This method, it is stated, involves a spiritual connection between the practitioner and the recipient, regardless of location, and then to send the Regenesis energy.
Whole body treatment
In a typical whole-body Regenesis treatment,the practitioner asks the recipient to lie down, usually on a massage table, and relax. Loose, comfortable clothing is usually worn during the treatment. The practitioner might take a few moments to enter a calm or meditative state of mind and mentally prepare for the treatment,that is usually carried out without any unnecessary talking.
The treatment proceeds with the practitioner placing his hands on the recipient in various specific positions, depending of the injury or problem. However, practitioners may use a non-touching technique, where the hands are held a few centimetres away from the recipient's body, for some of the positions. The hands are usually kept still between 5 to 15 minutes depending on the problem before moving to the next position. Overall, the hand positions usually give a general coverage of the head, the front and back of the torso, the knees and feet. In Regenesis Between up to 180 specific positions are used, with the whole treatment lasting 45 to 90 minutes.
Most practitioners start with the fixed hand positions decribed in the Manual. The intuitive approach might also lead to individual positions being treated for much shorter or longer periods of time.
The recipient often feels warmth or tingling in the area being treated. A state of deep relaxation, combined with a general feeling of well-being, is usually the most noticeable immediate effect of the treatment, although emotional releases can also occur. As the Regenesis treatment is said to be stimulating natural healing processes, instantaneous "cures" of specific health problems are not usually observed. A series of three or more treatments, typically at intervals of 1 to 7 days, is usually recommended if a chronic condition is being addressed.Regular treatments, on an on-going basis, can be used with the aim of maintaining well-being. The interval between such treatments is typically in the range of 1 to 4 weeks, except in the case of self-treatment when a daily practice is common.
Localized Regenesis treatments involve the practitioner's hands being held on or near a specific part of the body. Recent injuries are usually treated in this way,with the site of injury being targeted. There is great variation in the duration of such treatments, though 20 minutes might be typical.
Regenesis in relation to Quantum-Touch from Richard Gordon.
Regenesis is used as a basis for the basic workshop Quantum-Touch.
Most readers of the book by Richard Gordon "a breakthrough in healing with your hands" have recognized that a part of the method and philosophy of Bob Rasmusson has been used.
Beginning 1995 Richard Gordon became a student of Bob Rasmusson. He taught one or two more Regenesis workshops. He never became a Regenesis Practitioner or certified teacher.
In April 1995, Robert Rasmusson participated in a holistic-health trade show. He was very upset to discover that Richard Gordon who was very keen to know Regenesis was also a participant in the trade show. He was lecturing on his new healing process, Quantum Touch ("Quantum" from Depak Chopra's book, Quantum Healing, and "Touch" from Touch for Health, another well-known energy modality). It ios believed that he was teaching the basic workshop of Regenesis under the name Quantum Touch.
Richard Gordon and and Robert Rasmusson were never close friends. The relationship was always based on why and how the work functioned (achieved such miraculous results). After hearing how Richard took his work and called it Quantum Touch, Bob never saw Richard again. The person who Bob wanted to carry on the work after his retirement was not Richard Gordon but Jim Mann.
Today, Jim man is a teacher in the USA and in Europe where he tech European students the Healing Art Regenesis
Bob died on September 12, 2001 (one day after the attack on the Twin Towers) in 2001.
We are two Quantum-Healing teachers and practitioners offering Healing courses based on the Quantum-Energy. We practise and teach our courses in the style of the founder of Regenesis, Robert Rasmusson, who used Regenesis to directly work on physical and emotional conditions.
