don't know about healing, but i seemed to pick-up some very nasty form of aikinitis. it's virulent. anti-biotics don't work. it makes you want to do some stupid jin stuffs and you feel silly afterward. the only known cure so far is IHTBF. we might have to send folks who contracted aikinitis to some sort of penal colony like hawaii or australia; some place nice and near the beach, where we can roam around in our natural setting and away from normal aikido population or just population in general.
