One hundred healthy people (average age being 28.5 years) participated
in the study, 38 males and 62 females. Each participant underwent a onetime
hot rocks massage, their height and weight was measured, and their
blood pressure and heart rate were measured both pre and post-massage.
The massage lasted between 60‒70 min, a total of 45 hot rocks were used.
The studied group was divided into 2 subgroups: A (participants with
a normal body weight) and B (participants who were overweight). The hot rocks massage was an effective in lowering both blood pressure and heart
