“Magic Chair” for Beauty (Mar, 1936)

“Magic Chair” for Beauty

A recent fad in Paris (France) is Mecanotherapy— literally mechanical medical treatment—to bring about health, slenderness and beauty. At least, it is liberally advertised to the seekers after all three, and is obtainable at a good price. It centers round the chair illustrated below and its numerous gadgets; which is said to obviate diet and exercise in reducing. It certainly seems like a wonderful invention if it will accomplish what it is supposed to do. The motors move the limbs and joints, instead of the subject’s doing so; and thereby, it is supposed, bring about the same results in building up muscles and removing fat.

    Looks a lot like some of those exercise things they sell late at night on tv, except for the self-chiropractic attachment. Maybe that’s what they show you when you order the dvd.

    I’m not sure why she of all women needs a magic chair: she’s already gorgeous.
