Women take a "selfie" with musicians and healers of band "Mazaher Zar" after the band performed a traditional exorcism ritual in Cairo late November 12, 2014. Egyptians dance the "Zar", a traditional dance of frenzied movements, to captivating music that has its roots in an exorcism ritual. It has been part of Egyptian culture since ancient times to dance to drive away evil spirits and negative energy. The "Zar" religious ceremony, which uses drumming and dancing to cure an illness thought to be caused by a demon, is most prominent in southern Egypt and is practiced further south into the Sudan, though it may be performed anywhere in Egypt.

Muhammad Rehan sits chained by his ankle to a wall in compounds of the Abdullah Shah Ashabi Sufi shrine in Thatta district, in Pakistan's Sindh province, November 24, 2011. Rehan, 18, suffers from violent fits and was brought to the compound so that he can be close to the spirit of the saint, according to his mother Jamila Bibi. He is kept chained to prevent him from hitting other people. Many Pakistanis think their sufferings are inflicted by evil spirits intent on destroying marriage prospects, businesses and health, and that only Sufi saints can help. It is a risky belief in Pakistan as militants, including the al Qaeda-linked Taliban, have over the years bombed Sufi shrines which they consider heretical. But fears of possession, and life's many challenges, keep driving people back to the shrines. Picture taken November 24, 2011.

Faith healing continues to find favour in this mainly Muslim country, underscoring the tension between tradition and modernity in Malaysia, a melting pot of Asian cultures with a long history of alternative medicine.Though uncommon, the continued use of exorcists and bomoh, or faith healers, has in part led the government to draft a law to regulate practitioners of traditional and complementary medicine.

Malaysian Chinese faith healer Tan Giak Ann prepares before consulting patients at a temple in Kuala Lumpur October 13, 2010. Faith healing continues to find favour in this mainly Muslim country, underscoring the tension between tradition and modernity in Malaysia, a melting pot of Asian cultures with a long history of alternative medicine. Though uncommon, the continued use of exorcists and bomoh, or faith healers, has in part led the government to draft a law to regulate practitioners of traditional and complementary medicine.
