A small work of 128 pages, illustrated by 28 woodcuts. According to the author this is probably the only manual on this subject in the English language which gives any information how to apply the treatment in different diseases. It is the object of the handbook to give directions sufficient to enable the physician, or an operator under his direction, to apply the "movements" in the sick-room without the aid of apparatus.

The value of this mode of treatment should be recognized and neither prejudice nor ignorance should stand in the way of its adoption when it can be beneficial.
