What Every Masseuse Should Know

In 1916, whilst herself practising as a masseuse, (physiotherapist) in London hospitals Vera produced, wrote and illustrated a massage training book. What Every Masseuse should know was published by Methuen in 1917 and was positively reviewed in The Spectator:

‘It is not often that one comes across a handbook with such pretty pictures in it as are contained in Miss Waddington’s ‘What Every Masseuse should Know’. They are outline drawings, and in style might be termed a kind of Matisse-cum-Slade, which has adapted itself very charmingly to its present utilitarian purpose. The drawings illustrate a very large number of the active and passive movements, which form so important a part of the masseuse’s treatment.’
