Malaysian Chinese faith healer Tan Giak Ann performs a prayer around a temple before consulting patients 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.
