The Preservation and Advancement of
Quantum Energetics Structured Therapy.
Our Objective is to preserve QEST as a powerful stand-alone energy modality.
We aim to preserve the foundational work of QEST along with the advancement of well researched procedures to ensure that the integrity and efficacy of QEST will continue to be taught and practiced for years to come.
We will continue to expand our growth globally by providing quality QEST education and training.
At QESTA we value the core of the work and understand the necessity of QEST problem- solving.
We value personal and professional growth through hands-on practice and dedication.
We honor the respect, integrity, and trust within the QEST community.
Cultural diversity and inclusiveness within our membership is important.
Welcome! The sole focus of our organization, QESTA, is the promotion and furtherance of Quantum Energetics Structured Therapy. Our board members have long experienced QEST's powerful benefits. Our dedication and love for QEST have motivated us to form an alliance to support QEST so that future generations may also enjoy its benefits.
While many energy healing modalities have emerged over the years under the umbrella of "energy medicine", QEST has the greatest depth, breadth, and healing power of any modality that we've encountered. QEST requires foundational knowledge of anatomy and physiology along with its unique corrective procedures. Because QEST is a "structured therapy", it can be methodically learned and implemented to begin helping clients from their first appointment. After learning the basics, specific problem-solving methods are learned by the student practitioner.
For decades it's been acknowledged by some that everything in the body has an energetic signature. With numerical codes and specific corrective procedures, we stand in amazement at the seemingly mysterious power of these energetic reminders in QEST's repertoire to trigger the body's healing. Incidentally, QEST has had amazing results with animals and babies. I mention this to show that QEST's effects are far beyond placebo effect. It's of note that QEST is not static. As there are new understandings from anatomical research, QEST often expands.
We in QESTA recognize that our healing modality is not the "be-all, end-all", and that there are additional components to mental, emotional and spiritual health. However, we believe that QEST is irreplaceable in our modern lives. We are excited that QEST can make a powerful difference for your health and well-being, your family’s quality of life, and of course, that of clients.
We look forward to an eventual QEST Practitioner directory on this site to help you find a qualified practitioner.
Judith Heath, QESTA President
OUR PURPOSE: Over the years, some QEST practitioners and students have wanted an organization and supportive network with the sole purpose of advancing and promoting QEST
STAND-ALONE: QESTA'S purpose is preserve QEST as a powerful stand-alone energy modality without mixing other types of energy medicine.
QESTA is not part of AAEM: But QESTA members are definitely encouraged to retain their membership with AAEM. A QESTA membership discount will be offered to all AAEM members. QESTA hasn't been founded to compete with any existing organization but simply to add specialized support for QEST practitioners and students.
GOING IN ORDER: QESTA members believe in taking clients through the work to lay the foundation for problem solving.
PROBLEM SOLVING: Most QESTA practitioners have clients with complex problems that require deeper approaches of QEST problem-solving. With these, we mine the depths of the amazing potential of our powerful healing modality.
BOOKS: QESTA members utilize the power of codes in three books: the Handbook, Supplemental book, and Judith Heath's New Codes book
PROBLEM SOLVING: Many problems require use of QEST's unique ability to zero in on indirect causes. We use preliminary, conditional, and pertain codes and lists to determine a course of action.
EXACTNESS: QESTA members stress the exactness required for hand placement for cranial - facial - SBS work and APs.
CHECKING FOR TIME FOR HOLDS: QESTA members honor the need to use muscle to find the length of time for holds, including OMSA and ENF holds. They recognize the need for an individualized approach.
139: QESTA members use the "longer form" of 139 for adults. Why? Well, experience has proven that this helps 139 to hold or last better. For babies, young children, and animals, the shorter form is used.
ACCURATE MUSCLE TESTING. QESTA members recognize that accurate muscle testing is the backbone of QEST. At least 6 factors can drastically alter the accuracy of an answer.
STRENGTH TESTING. If we know how to do some strength testing of specific muscles, that can show us as practitioners if codes just worked with have made a difference or not. If yes, it's dramatic for the client. If not, the practitioner knows to check and work with reflex pathology. Examples of things that could still be weakening muscles include conditions for bones, other muscles, ligaments, or organs / glands
128's: Practitioners need to frequently check for 128 MSA disruptions that may keep corrective procedures already done to work effectively. For example, 128's affect MSA's and act like a virus in a computer.
THE TEACHING OF QEST: We recognize that it future teachers of QEST have to spend time in the classroom with new students while under the supervision of an existing instructor of QEST. Experience for teaching hands-on work cannot be gained without hands-on guidance.
HANDS ON LEARNING: There are crucial things which cannot be taught via video or virtually. Examples: (a) Accurate muscle testing adjusted to each client. (b) Exact placement of fingers and appropriate pressure for cranial work. (c) Location of bodily landmarks. (d) Effective and safe work with 5M's for vertebrae, pelvis, and various joints. (e) Diaphragmatic entrapment work that's safe and effective
DIRECTORY: QESTA's website will include a directory of QEST practitioners and student practitioners.
PRACTITIONER LEVELS: In making referrals to QEST practitioners it's desirable to know if a listed practitioner is a student, a graduate (Level 1), a graduate who has passed required testing for Level 2 or has passed even further testing to be considered a Level 3 Practitioner.
CONTINUING EDUCATION: QESTA will offer members monthly Zoom sessions. We'll rotate between monthly 1 hr. presentations and 1 hr. Q and A sessions on "practical QEST". (Just so you know, Judith will continue her own monthly CE webinars for subscribers.)
TESTIMONIALS: Our website will have client testimonials that give inspiration and excitement to QEST practitioners and encouragement for potential new clients.
GATHERINGS: We'll have future QESTA gatherings that will focus solely on QEST. We'll have topics such as a deeper understanding of anatomy and physiology, nutritional & health tips for the client, QEST problem solving, case studies, and of course networking.
OUTREACH: We believe in doing all we can to encourage and inspire new practitioners and those who learned QEST long ago. We want to help people who have invested so much time, energy, and money to learn QEST. This is one way we'll try to help our valuable energy medicine to survive and thrive.
COMMUNITY. QESTA members intend to form a supportive community of practitioners who practice QEST in a like manner. We'll come together with regular virtual meetings to deepen expertise and excitement about QEST
WHAT KIND OF ORGANIZATION IS QESTA? It's a non-profit corporation.
BIG PICTURE: QESTA members are excited to continually learn more about the body's mysteries and how to help people feel well enough to accomplish what they are here in life to do.
FINALLY, QESTA members not only believe that "the more you know, the more you know" but also realize, "You don't know what you don't know...until you know it!"

Tasha Morris started taking classes in Quantum Energetics Structure Therapy in 1999. At first, she thought she was going to be learning this modality to just help herself and her family. It didn't take her long to realize this modality was going to change her life. "QEST is the most powerful healing modality I've ever witnessed". Since starting her original journey as a student in 1999, she has helped teach many classes - witnessing amazing life-changing results from QEST. She has now dedicated more than 20 years to the furtherance of the work. With her background in nursing and being a retired professional athlete, she has had a unique vantage point in seeing what the work could do. “I could see the potential for QEST in both medical applications and sports injuries.” When using QEST on her students from her boxing and mixed martial arts studio, she witnessed how quickly people recovered from sports injuries.
Terrie Sauder was born and raised in Cheyenne, WY. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Communications and Marketing from Black Hills State University in 1997 and from the University of South Dakota with a nursing degree in 2009. She is married with two amazing children and currently resides in Rapid City, SD.
Quantum Energetic Structured Therapy, QEST, came into Terrie’s life through her good friend, Brandy Alley, when Western Medicine failed to help with extreme fatigue. The modality of QEST has helped Terrie with fatigue, along with many other issues for several years. She has always wanted to learn this awesome modality and was recently given the opportunity to begin the journey of learning QEST in July of 2020 at the Quantum Energetics Institute, QEI, under the direction of Judith Heath. She graduated from QEI in March of 2022. Terrie looks forward to advancing as a practitioner in QEST and helping people to see how amazing energy therapy can be!
