that's actually not a easy question to answer. My brother is a healer. he himself is having a hard time accepting it. When he was a kid I once saw him cut his arm on the fence, then after placing his hand on it for a few minutes he was healed as if it had been about 3 days. I wouldn't say a faith healer for him since he's not religious.
He can place his hand on you and it takes swelling and pain away.
Most are frauds in my opinion so you have to be careful! But I do believe that there are people that with special gifts like that. It's like there are some people out that who claim to be psychics when they just want your money, while there are true psychics out there.
I do speak from experience. I myself come from a family of 'gifted people' -not everyone, but we've got our share. I dream of things to come, can tell a objects history, people feel different to me, I could go on and on.
