therapeutic touch

A healer (rather than a therapist) uses their hands to bring about healing, by placing them directly on a patient’s body or a small distance away from it. Contrary to the practices of faith healing and the laying on of hands, therapeutic touch healers do not necessarily believe they are channeling the power of a god or a spirit.
