It was carried out three times a week for 8 weeks with 50 minutes per once. 6 people for the experimental group were carried out stone and manual therapy. 6 people for the control group were carried out manual therapy. Thus, the following conclusions were obtained. First, both the experimental group and the control group had effect of reduction in abdominal circumference. The effect of body fat mass had significant difference only in a group with parallel execution of stone therapy management and manual therapy. Second, both the experimental group and the control group had effect of reduction in low back pain.
