What does Buddhism teach about healing others through the mind

From my experience, one can influence outcomes of whatever by using intent. This is investigated much currently by Thomas Campbell, which you can read about in this My big TOE book and see in his videos on YouTube. What I read from a Buddhist perspective (http://www.buddhanet.net/tib_heal.htm) the mind certainly plays a role in your own physical health. What about influencing that health of others? For example, when one of my kids has the flu, I wish them good health using meditation. I have no objective proof but it seems to speed up the recovery.

My question is, what does Buddhism teach in using the mind to heal physical problems of others? And what about healing their mental problems through focused intent?

I wish to have tagged this with 'mental', 'physical' and 'health' but those tags aren't available.
