Antiquated Regime

I’ve always wondered if this “treatment/exercise method” still exists:

“Gordon Baldwin: I think [Edie’s] idea was to model in New York. Much of that summer she went to a salon where they literally pounded her legs into shape. Her legs were not good in those days––piano legs––but by the time the course was over she ended up with those legs that were so famously beautiful.”
