Definition of Distance healing

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.
