Distant healing is healing performed when the client is not physically present. Spiritual healing or energy healing is given when the healer is not in the presence of the patient. By attunement, and visualization, the healer seeks to promote the well-being of, and self-healing in, the patient. It is possible to transmit healing energies over any distance and this form of healing can be very effective. It’s a little like radio waves — although they are around us all the while, they have to have a receiver which is tuned in, in order for them to be picked up.
