"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."
— Remus Lupin using a healing spell[src]

A Healing spell was a type of spell distinguished by their capacity to magically improve the physical condition of the living object — they were thus a branch of Healing magic.[1] Healing spells may have fallen under multiple categories, such charms (Episkey),[1] Vanishments (Anapneo[2] and Ossio Dispersimus),[3] conjurations (Bandaging Charm),[4][5] or others. On 1 September 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 was not meant to be used on flesh wounds, as attempting so may have created serious scars.[6]
