TURPAN, CHINA - JUNE 10: Uygur women rest in the sand as they are having therapy at a "Sand Therapy Center", on June 10, 2007, about 10 kilometers outside Turpan, China. Sand Therapy is an important part of Uygur traditional medicine and many people come every year to get healed from different ailments, including hypertension, pain, and rheumatism. It's only open in June and July every year and thousands of patients from around China during the hottest season, that's the only time when it is hot enough. Most of the people stay in the nearby center where they can have special baths and massages. (Photo by Per-Anders Pettersson)...
