    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This aids the body in dissolving hardened fats, revives stagnant energy, stimulates blood circulation and warms and energises your body. It is most commonly used on the lower back to strengthen and relax the kidneys. It relieves water retention, tired eyes, swollen fingers and stiff, aching muscles. Please note: People with cancer shouldn't use this treatment. This is from the book "Glow - A Prescription for radiant health and beauty" by Christina Pirello author of COOKING THE WHOLE FOODS WAY.
