Here is my best explanation:

'this therapist might' is the definition.
'osteopath' can be an answer for 'therapist' (osteopath is a kind of therapist). I am not certain of the rest of the definition.

'soothe suffering maintaining light touch?' is the wordplay.
'suffering' indicates anagramming the letters.
'maintaining' indicates putting letters inside.
'light touch?' becomes 'pat' (I've seen this before).
'soothe' with letters rearranged gives 'osteoh'.
'osteoh' going around 'pat' is 'OSTEOPATH'.
