The physician's knowledge of the general methods of massage, together with his familiarity with anatomy and physiology, enable him to work out the details of mechanical treatment, but he would far better have some such book as this by Ostrom as a guide. Details are given for massage of all portions of the body and the illustrations make it easy to understand the directions. This sixth edition has been thoroughly revised and a number of new portions added. The physician who is not using any of these methods in his treatment is omitting a valuable part of the therapy that is open to him.
