Can deep tissue massage move kidney stones?

In response. Yes.

It is very important however to know exactly what one is doing. We want to apply deep tissue massage on the areas surrounding the actual kidney stone rather than pressing hard on the stone itself. By applying deep tissue massage on the surrounding tissue and muscles, hopefully we can move the tissue and muscles enough so that the stone will be freed from the grip of the tissue or the walls of the renal and urinary ducts.

The trick to find out exactly where the kidney stone is located is to press down hard on the kidney and pelvic area until one feels excruciating pain. That will be the location of the kidney stone.
