Distance healing
Healing in which people seek to help patients simply with the power of the mind. Distance healing can include anything from therapeutic touch — in which practitioners, without touching their patients, try to alter their energy fields — to praying for people who are ill. Distance healing is part of the practice of alternative medicine.
