In the Sutras, Shakyamuni Buddha, the living Buddha of our age, taught the Dharani of the Medicine Buddha to benefit all beings, from Gods to Hell beings. Medicine Buddha is renowned not just for Healing, but for His ability to neutralize past bad Karma, His ability to bring good Fortune to those in need, His ability to help us on the Path to Enlightenment, even His vows to release repentant prisoners. His Dharani in Sanskrit is:

    Namo bhagavate bhaisajyaguru-vaidurya prabha-rajaya tathagataya arhate samyak- sambuddhaya tadyatha. Om bhaisajye bhaisajye bhaisajya-samudgate svaha!

This can be translated as: “I honour the Lord Master of Healing, the Kin of Lapis Lazuli Radiance, Tathagata, Arhat, Perfect Enlightened One, saying: To the Healing, to the Healing, to the supreme Healing hail!” The last line of the Dharani is, of course, the short Mantra.
