Excerpt from The Therapeutic Gazette, Vol. 11: A Monthly Journal of Physiological and Clinical Therapeutics; Third Series, Vol. III
Pneumatotherapy, steadily growing in favor as the number of physicians resorting to it increases, bids fair to assume at last its proper position among the resources of med ical art. It can only be damaged, not bene fited, by a tendency to indulge in extravagant claims and reckless assertions. There is nothing mysterious about it, - no miracle, no witchcraft. It has its applications and its limitations, and these are exact and Capable of determination, almost with mathematical precision. In practice, the benefits to be derived from it will depend upon its artistic employment, - as the result upon a canvas depends not on the chemical nature of the pigments, but upon the skill with which they are laid on.
