Abstract

John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943) was an American doctor who became famous for healthy breakfast cereals like cornflakes. Kellogg also promoted the combination of massage and systematic graduated Swedish exercises to alleviate ailments ranging from ‘diseases peculiar to women’ to the treatment of ‘chronic pain’. This plate shows four forms of vibratory equipment which were designed by Kellogg for the purposes of ‘vasomotor gymnastics.’ The pelvic tilting table (Fig 130.) was used to assist with pelvic congestion and rectal disease. According to Kellogg, ‘15 minutes per session’ was sufficient to secure a ‘physiological effect’ using this equipment.
