The stone therapy have received attention as a facial treatment for sensitive skin but the effectiveness of stone therapy is unconfirmed.

In a clinical testing, we carried out the stone therapy for these 7 persons twice a week for 4 weeks. As a result, the skin temperature, moisture, oil and elasticity of 7 participants were improved overall as the stone therapy proceeded. Therefore, stone therapy seemed to be effective as a facial treatment for the sensitive skin.
