Healing is a game mechanic in League of Legends that refers to the ability to restore a unit's vitality. It may represent anything from attending to battle wounds to repairing damaged hardware to replenishing a magical spell that holds a construct together. Outside of its physical representation, its effect is always the same - it serves as a direct increase to a unit's current health.

Healing can be viewed as the polar opposite of damage. Unlike sources of damage, however, sources of healing are uncommon and the majority cannot be used to heal others - and those that can frequently have large ulterior costs to use. Healing itself is distinct from the other forms of health restoration (life steal, spell vamp and health regeneration) and is tracked as its own statistic at the End of Game screen.

Healing reduction effects reduce the effectiveness of all forms of health restoration, including healing. Healing reduction sourced from champions or items is known as Grievous Wounds icon Grievous Wounds, which reduces all healing effects (with the exception of SorakaSquare.png Soraka's Wish.png Wish, which will remove it first) by 50%. Certain Fields of Justice also possess global auras that supply healing reduction to all champions present.

Healing cannot increase a unit's current health over its maximum. The act of leveling up and certain champion abilities can increase a unit's maximum health (with a corresponding increase to current health as well), but this is not considered a form of healing. As a result, they are not affected by healing reduction.
