Pile of stones used for stone therapy. Bamboo (family Poaceae) is at the top. The stones can be heated and placed along the spine to warm the muscles in the back, while hand-held hot stones and a base oil are used to give a massage. Cold stones can also be used to treat inflammation and painful joints.
