I think it's "Therapeutic Touch" (created by a nurse) that transmits healing energy through laying on of hands. Tohei had a similar system.

I am trying to study more of the energy medicines and finding the relaxed "let" of touch transmits the emotional content. So what we think and feel while doing Aikido makes a great difference.

Fascinating stuff.
