The ‘Veedee’ vibratory massager claimed to cure colds, digestive complaints and flatulence through ‘curative vibration’. Instructions state that there was almost nothing the German-made ‘Veedee’ vibrator could not cure. The name is thought to be a pun on the Latin term, ‘Veni Vidi Vici’. This means ‘I came, I saw, I conquered’. During the late 1800s, massage was considered effective for combating almost any affliction. These ranged from headaches to female ‘hysteria’. A huge array of massage tools such as this example were advertised in magazines and newspapers.
