I am wondering if it would be possible to heal wounds without marking Corruption, through rest for example. Or is it intended that the only way to heal is through Corruption?

You can play the game however you like.  The cost of corruption to heal is there to  enforce the tone of the intended game , but you can adjust it to fit your game.
