      While many people are plagued by heat and try to cool off, some swarm to hot Xinjiang for a special therapy. This photo shows a woman from Shaanxi province experiencing sand therapy at a hospital in Turpan, Xinjiang, where the sand temperature reaches 62.3 C on July 26, 2014. Sand therapy is a traditional treatment among Uygur people in Xinjiang. People bury part of their body into the hot sand to cure diseases such as arthritis and pain in the back or in the leg.
