Massage is to work and act on the body with pressure. Massage techniques are commonly applied with hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a device. The purpose of massage is generally for the treatment of stress or pain. In professional settings, clients are treated while lying on a massage table, sitting in a massage chair, or lying on a mat on the floor. In amateur settings, a general purpose surface like a bed or the floor is more common.
Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices.
Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine mostly concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Proponents claim that such disorders affect general health via the nervous system. These claims are not backed by any evidence. The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy, manipulations of other joints and soft tissues. Its foundation is at odds with mainstream medicine, and chiropractic is sustained by pseudoscientific ideas such as subluxation and "innate intelligence" that are not based on sound science.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy which consists of burning dried mugwort (moxa) on particular points on the body. It plays an important role in the traditional medical systems of China (including Tibet), Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and Mongolia. Suppliers usually age the mugwort and grind it up to a fluff; practitioners burn the fluff or process it further into a cigar-shaped stick. They can use it indirectly, with acupuncture needles, or burn it on the patient's skin.
Far Infrared Ray (FIR), is the 'warm' energy in humans, animals, and plants, emitted from sunlight. The intensity of Far Infrared produced by the human body constantly fluctuates. When the intensity is high, we feel healthy and better equipped to deal with physical challenges. When the Far Infrared begins to decline, we are subject to becoming unwell and tend to age more quickly. We can be exposed to pure Far Infrared heat for hours and it will not cause our skin to burn, in fact, the Japanese use it to promote healing from sunburn. Far Infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things.
Negative ions are beneficial for the human body while positive ions are harmful. In fact, you will find the highest concentrations of negative ions in natural, clean air. Ions are invisible charged particles in the air – either molecules or atoms, which bear an electric charge. They neutralize free radicals. They revitalize cell metabolism. They enhance immune function. They purify the blood. They balance the autonomic nervous system, promoting deep sleep and healthy digestion.

Music therapists primarily help clients improve their health in several domains.
