No effect: Won't change the stones but if it makes you feel better it should be ok as long as you are careful not to cause any skin injury.

No.: In summer, people can develop kidney stone if life style is sluggish. We should have active life style, reduce sodium intake (salt intake), increase water consumption (dehydration concentrates the urine and increases mineralization).
