- Handbook Of Anatomy For Students Of Massage | by Margaret E. Bjorkegren
- This book has been compiled with the object of meeting a want, to which my attention was repeatedly called by my students when preparing them for the examinations of the Incorporated Society of Trained Masseuses. No book dealing with Anatomy, especially arranged for students of massage, has yet been written, and I have endeavoured to make good this deficiency to the best of my ability. It is hoped that this small volume will be found to embody all the ground covered by the syllabus of this Society for its examinations in Massage and Swedish Remedial Exercises.
- Massage And Medical Gymnastics | by Emil A. G. Kleen
- Massage and Physical Exercises have formed a branch of medical and surgical treatment from time immemorial and in all countries, a fact demonstrated by Dr. Kleen in his historical introduction ; and Dr. Kleen's work is a classic upon the subject which deserves the widest possible circulation throughout the world.

Naturally the author's views will receive criticism when they come to be read by English-speaking people. Swedish methods of massage and gymnastics are not universally accepted as gospel. Sound and considered criticism is healthy, and Dr. Kleen would himself be the last to raise objection to it. But the great scientific work that has been done by the Swedish schools during the last hundred years has undoubtedly done more to place this branch of treatment upon an acknowledged footing than has that of any other group of workers.

In these pages we have an exposition of his own observations and practice by a physician, an acknowledged master, whose enthusiasm for his subject is tempered by a wide clinical experience of success and of failure
