Through the instruction of the former Fire Nation prisoner, Katara discovered that bloodbending was a sub-skill of waterbending, used by master waterbenders under the strength of the full moon. When used, the skill allows a waterbender to control the actions of another by manipulating the water inside any living thing.
The skill was something Katara had never wanted to discover. Throughout the years after ATLA‘s end, and leading up to Korra’s time as the Avatar, Katara was able to make bloodbending illegal. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop certain waterbenders from learning the skill in secret and using it to their advantage.
Healing was introduced much earlier on in ATLA and Katara was shown to have considerable skill with it. It is a rare ability for waterbenders, but those who are able to master it can do incredible things. Katara was even able to save Aang from a fatal bolt of lightning (caused by Azula) with a little power boost from some spirit water she was given in the Northern Water Tribe.
