Vitality Through Vita-Flex Technique


Vita-Flex is a finger rolling reflexology technique which releases electrical impulses of healing energy from the fingertips into the reflex points. The theory is that these electrical impulses released through the fingertips travel along the nerve pathways to where there is an energy blockage and stimulate that area of the body to correct itself.

How do I perform this technique?

You can learn this technique by practicing using the left arm as the working area.

Place your right fingertips on your left arm as
shown above.




Using medium pressure roll up...





...and over until your fingernails touch your left
arm, thereby breaking that electrical impulse.

You then return to the exact same starting position to repeat the process and continue working on the same spot or you may allow your fingers to slide forward ¼ to ½ inch in order to cover a wider area.

As you learn the technique you will be able to speed up and do the motion several times in a short amount of time.


Advantages

  • This technique is very easy on the worker’'s hands as very little pressure is required.

  • As in reflexology – there are no dangerous or destructive side effects.

  • There is no damage to the tissues as there is no rubbing involved.

  • An affected area is worked on through the reflex points, therefore there is no risk of further injury to an already injured area or part.

History

According to the research of Stanley Burroughs (author of Healing for the Age of Enlightenment), this technique is believed to have originated in Tibet long before the discovery of acupuncture. It’s name means “vitality through the reflexes.”

Where on the body can I use this technique?

Vita-Flex is most often used on the feet, but may be used on almost any part of the body.

One option is to adapt the technique by rolling the thumbs inward along each side of the vertebrae as you work up and down the spine. Working alongside the spine is very effective as there are many nerve pathways branching out from the spinal cord.

Super-charge Vita-Flex Technique with Essential Oils

Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils are fabulous alone and so is this technique. Put them together and you have dynamite!

Combine these two techniques by applying 1 to 2 drops of the chosen essential oil over the reflex area which corresponds to the organ or system you wish to work on and then proceed to perform Vita-Flex.
