In the area of Rawa Buaya in Jakarta, Indonesians resort to "railway therapy" to treat various illnesses.

Locals believe that electrical energy from the train tracks will increase the vitality of the body, as well as help cure diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, rheumatism, gout, obesity and high cholesterol.

However, the activity is extremely dangerous.
