It is possible that you really didn't have anything at all wrong with your wrist - you may have been experiencing sympathetic pain or a psychological pain that your brain was perceiving as physical - and the mere suggestion that the pain could disappear was enough for your brain to interpret reality correctly.
Interesting, and without a doubt sometimes the case. but in my case I don't believe this was a matter of wrong signaling/interpretation/suggestion from my side. You see, I know exactly where my pain came from. It was a physical cause and effect and has been there for years since the very moment it happened. In my memory, I can still pinpoint that moment and remember every detail and everything that was involved.

There is an entire school of thought that energy flows like electricity. From higher to lower, stronger to weaker etc.
The example above is just one most of us are familiar with. Many secular and other religious resources report similar stories.
So what if the question is not "does it exist" (energy moving from one source to another)
but "what is the source"?
I personally think it is a simple part of the natural world. Just like barometric pressure and tides and so on.
This idea of energy comes close to my own gut-feeling. Warmth is known to relieve muscle pain, and warmth is a form of energy. The lady probably has the "gift" that her energy goes/flows to where it's needed. I still think that in this case, that energy is not exactly the same as heat. May indeed have something to do with electricity, molecules and their arrangements.
It's great to discuss these things without superstition.
