Alternative super power

Another super power that would be good to have is the power to universally heal.

I'm thinking that, as long as you can touch the person's skin, look them in the eye, and say "It will be all right", then in exactly one year the person will have completely healed whatever physical, cognitive or psychological disability the person had.

The recovery would be fairly linear, and incremental, such that for the first week the person wouldn't notice the improvement.

An awkward implication of this ability is that you wouldn't be able to go public with it, because people would be hounding you to heal them.  So you'd have to do things like wander around the hospital wards, secretly healing people.
