Any culture has the function of healing. The same is true of the multi-ethnic folk song Huaer, among which, especially the ritual songs, the song of begging for children and the pornographic songs, have outstanding effects in healing the inner wounds of the local people. In this paper, the author mainly focuses on the song of begging for children and the pornographic songs to analyze their cultural functions from both physical and psychological aspects to interpret its therapeutic function. From the psychological point of view, after hundreds of years of development, evolution and spread, Huaer has been deeply embedded in the blood and bone marrow of the local people, fully in line with the aesthetic and psychological demands of the local people, and has become a narrative way of expressing their inner distress in the singing area. In terms of physiological function, Huaer and Huaer parties will provide a medium and a place to release depression for young men and women who are unhappy in marriage and in sexual distress. Through the analysis of its therapeutic function, it is of great significance for us to further study and explain the cultural connotation of Huaer.
