Is drinking hot water just not doing enough to keep your body healthy? It might be time to try some “stone therapy.”
In a park in the Henan city of Luoyang, some health-conscious aunties have been spotted lying down on stone pathways or on top of statues, absorbing heat from the blazing sun while also making sure to cover up to protect their skin from the sun’s damaging rays.
The women reportedly believe that by basking in the sun this way, they are absorbing energy which can cure them of a number of ailments. Doctors say that this method results instead in burns, boils, and heat stroke.
