Term: Spiritual Healing

DEFINITIONS

Spiritual Healing:

Although generically used to mean any type of healing achieved via non-physical actions, spiritual healing specifically deals with the interrelationships of the multiple bodies each person has (physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, etc.). The idea is to in some way adjust or affect the spiritual body in order to have an effect on the physical body.
