Dr Kellogg says...


The hydriatrist must know not only that his apparatus and appliances are perfect and in perfect condition, but he must know exactly the condition of the patient to be treated, and must have a clearly defined rationale for each application made. Every prescription must have a sound physiological basis. Empiricism (relying solely on experiment and observation, or feelings not theory) is bad anywhere, but especially so in practical hydrotherapy. A profound knowledge of physiology and pathology is essential to success. pp 402,3
