Any form of massage technique has an effect on the lymphatic system. I have been an MLD practitioner for 20 years, working predominantly with cancer related lymphoedema patients. I would not use hot stones on them, as heat would have a detrimental effect on the superficial lymphatics, and cause more oedema.
It should be fine to use both applications on people with uncompromised lymphatic systems.
