No Single therapeutic agent can be compared in efficiency with this familiar but perfect tool. .
The human hand
It is pre-eminently the instrument of the artist in all departments
The hand is an ever present agent of skill . . . It is capable of infinite adaptation . . .
If half as much research had been expended on the principles governing manual treatment as upon pharmacology, the hand would be esteemed today on a par with drugs in acceptability and power . . .
