So I just heard about Zentherapy from Texas-gal today, and it got me interested in hearing from all of us to compile a modalities list. Not sure if there's already another thread on this...
So on my obscure list I'd start with

i was taught honey massage (and experienced it) as part of the basic massage course i graduated from.
the first 2-3 sessions may be somehow painful - but it all depends on the technique used.
basically, the idea is that the massage practitioner spreads a teaspoon of liquid honey (with or without essential oils) on the massaged part of the body. after that, the practitioner puts her hands on the client's body, holds them for a few seconds (until they are glued to the skin by the honey) and lift them quickly. after a few seconds, the practitioner repeats the procedure, until she covers the whole massaged surface. the procedure for the back takes 15 minutes, for one leg - 10 minutes, etc.
the procedure may be a little bit painful - pain increases with the speed the hands are lifted from the client's skin. so, for the first sessions, i'd recommend medium speed.
after a session, the client feels very energized (i know i felt that way:) )
our instructor told us it is indicated in cases of osteochondrosis, radiculitis, for helping with immunity problems etc. it greatly stimulates blood and lymph flow in the subcutaneous tissue.
hope that helps, and that my english is intelligible enough.
