to release tension, congestion, imbalances, toxins
What is Vita Flex Technique?
Vita Flex Technique means "Vitality through the Reflexes".
It's a specialized form of body massage and it's based on a network of reflex points that stimulate all of the internal body systems.
It is said that its origin is Tibet and it has been practiced since thousands of years ago...long before acupuncture was developed. During 1970, Stanley Burroughs brought this technique to America.
How does VitaFlex work?
With specific hand technique of "Press", "Roll" and "Release", energy is released through electrical impulses created by contact between the fingertips and the reflex points.
This electrical charge follows the nerve pathways to a break in the electrical circuit caused by toxins, damaged tissues, misalignment of the spine, or loss of oxygen.
By practicing this technique on VitaFlex points throughout the human body (it's said that there are more than 1400 points, encompassing the entire realm of body-mind), many kinds of tension and congestion can be released, and imbalances can be restored.
Vita-Flex vs. Reflexology
Vita Flex technique uses a pressing, rolling and releasing motion that involves placing all four fingers flat on the skin, rolling onto the fingertips, and continuing over onto the fingernail.
Unlike the steady stimulation of Reflexology, you want to use medium pressure when you practice Vita-Flex technique.
Power of the Combination with Essential Oils
During 1990, Gary Young who is a founder of
Young Living Essential Oils
made a discovery that this technique is very effective in delivering the benefits of essential oils throughout the body.
You can practice this technique with 2-3 drops of essential oil applied to those areas of the feet that correspond to the system of the body you wish to support.
This technique is a vital part of Raindrop Technique.
