A therapist (top) holds a towel to get ready to put out the fire as a man undergoes a "fire treatment", a traditional Chinese remedy, at a health club in Quanzhou, Fujian province June 9, 2014. The treatment involves placing Chinese medicine onto the human body, then covering the medicine with towels soaked with alcohol which will be set aflame. The fire is believed to be creating a warmer condition for the body to better absorb the medicine, local media reported. Picture taken June 9, 2014.
