What is ruqya? How is it done?

Ruqya is an Islamic cure done by reciting the Qur'an. There is a method of doing it.

If a person seeks ruqya, then the Shaykh basically recites the Qur'an, most of it is actually the recitation of the Qur'an. Other Shaykhs may use zaitu zaitoon which is olive oil or honey and this is authenticated by the Kitaab and the sunnah of Rasoolallah (ﷺ).

Outside of that, people are asked to wear somethings, burn something at some place, sacrifice an animal, all these things are shirk and we have to stay away from it.

And Allah knows best.
