So many forms of qigong-healing, energy-healing, distance-healing out there today. Most of these -- it is my guess -- are variations on the theme of electro-magnetic resonance: one person (qua bodymind) acting compassionately as a "tuning fork" of sorts, for the other.
Also quite interesting are "quantum healing" modalities, which I introduce in the same article. Here the connection is "nonlocal," i.e. outside of space/time. (Hard to fathom, and yet ...)
Along similar lines: various audio- and video-conferencing technologies make possible "real-time" visual and auditory connections -- with teachers and healers -- "at a distance," that previously would have been impossible. Three that I've greatly appreciated and enjoyed, and whose nondual approach feels very much in alignment with Taoist practice, are:
I still find in-person connections to be invaluable, irreplaceable in some way -- but for the times when such is not possible, yeah! for our contemporary technology.
