"He hurried over to Ron, bent down, tapped Ron's leg with his wand and muttered 'Ferula'. Bandages spun up Ron's leg, strapping it tightly to a splint."

A Healing spell is a type of spell distinguished by their capacity to magically improve the physical condition of the living object — they are a branch of Healing magic. Healing spells may fall under multiple categories, such charms (Episkey), Vanishments (Anapneo and Ossio Dispersimus), conjurations (Bandaging Charm), or others. In 1996, Harry Potter allowed Nymphadora Tonks to heal his broken nose, though he had been intending to see Madam Pomfrey, whom he privately felt to be more competent with Healing spells than Tonks.[1]

The Mending Charm is not meant to be used on flesh wounds, as attempting so may create serious scars.[2]
