Healing restores and harmonises your life energy and increases the body's ability to heal itself. Reyad Sekh Em Egyptian Alchemy Healing balances your energies and creates a sense of relaxation.
All healing should be given with a Loving Intent - you are sending Unconditional Love and Light into the person you are healing (which could of course be yourself). Love and Light are the two strongest forces in the Universe, and it is these forces we are harnessing or channelling to give healing. Thus the physical centre from which healing emanates is the heart - the sacred heart chakra specifically. Successful healers have a driving motivation to supply unconditional love and compassion to all mankind and other living creations (plant, animal and mineral / crystals and geographical landscapes all respond to positive emotions).
