There are healing techniques as Colonics, Aroma Therapy, "The Healing Codes", "EFT" (Emotional Freedom Technique).

Below is a discussion of some of these.

Osteopathy is an approach to healthcare that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease.
Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine that treats a disease with heavily diluted preparations created from substances that would ordinarily cause effects similar to the disease's symptoms.
Naturopathy (also known as naturopathic medicine or natural medicine) is an alternative medical system that focuses on natural remedies and the body's vital ability to heal and maintain itself. Naturopathic philosophy favors a holistic approach and minimal use of surgery and drugs.
Oriental Medicine
"Chinese medicine," often called "Oriental medicine" or "traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)," encompasses a vast array of folk medical practices based on mysticism. It holds that the body's vital energy (chi or qi) circulates through channels, called meridians, that have branches connected to bodily organs and functions. Illness is attributed to imbalance or interruption of chi.. Ancient practices such as acupuncture, Qigong, and the use of various herbs are claimed to restore balance.

Here is an article entitled "What is acupuncture? How does it work? What can it do?" by Constance Fraatz, who owns Still Waters Healing Center in Maitland, Florida. She talks about the benefits of acupuncture.
