Healing is a village and civil parish in North East Lincolnshire, England. It is situated between Stallingborough and Great Coates, and west from Grimsby. Healing population at the 2001 Census was 2,606.

Healing consisted of 29 households in two manors at the time of the Domesday Book, when it was known as "Hegelinge" "Hechelinge" or "Heghelinge", which probably derives from Anglo-Saxon Hægelingas - "the sons or followers of a man named Hægel". One of the manors was to the south of the village, the other is a moated site.

In 1885 Kelly's Directory noted that parish area was , farmed on the four field system.[1]

The village has a post office, fish and chip shop, hairdressers, and a public payphone. It is served by Healing railway station, on the Barton-Cleethorpes line, and a local bus service.

It has two schools, Healing Primary School and Healing Comprehensive. A new housing estate was built around 2001.

There are two local men's football teams, and a junior football team, the Healing Hotspurs.

Healing Grade II listed Anglican parish church is of 13th-century origin and dedicated to St Peter and St Paul. The upper parts of the tower are in Decorated style and ashlar-faced. It was partly rebuilt in 1840, and later heavily restored in 1876 by "Fowler of Louth", who added a new roof and windows and rebuilt its south side. Within the churchyard is a listed 14th- or 15th-century cross base. A further listed building at Healing is a late 18th- or early 19th-century farm range – a type of building typically containing stable, granary, dovecote and store.
