The "healing others" part is where it may get a little riskey.  Most of the information on helping arthritis and other conditions is purely anecdotal and does not form a basis for you to declare it as having a "healing property."  I'm not saying that I don't too think that many products of the hive can help in overall health just, don't market it that way unless there is proof, recognised by the USDA (so far, I don't know of any).

You might also want to consider that you would be practicing medicine without a license. I do believe that could cause you big problems in most states.

sting therapy is popular for things like arthritis and ms.  info can be found on the www.  

i would not actually perform the therapy for another.  if they were to have a reaction, it could be your hide that gets torn.  neither would i advertise my bees for this purpose.....however......there is a local bee keeper who will jar up a few bees, no questions asked, and sell them to you for a buck.

if someone were to come up to me and ask for a few bees in a jar, i'd probably go along with that.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
