Vita-Flex is a safe, non-invasive, pressure-point reflexive massage technique. It uses rolling and releasing motions to activate reflex points on the feet, hands, and various areas throughout the entire body. It is particularity effective in delivering the benefits of essential oils throughout the body.
- By using the body’s own “self-regulating or balancing process” to support its own healing, the Vita-flex massage technique may help a variety of different wellness related issues and conditions. (Woloshyn, 2007)
- Many people use Vita-flex to promote relaxation, balance hormones, help during cleansing, ease pain and promote health and healing of every body system.
- One of the greatest benefits of vita-flex is that it is non-invasive. Points massaged on the feet may affect the head, the back, digestive system or any other system.
Derived from the words, “vitality” and “reflex,” it means “vitality through the reflexes.” The principal behind Vita-Flex is to allow the body to balance itself by redirecting its vital energy. It is based on a complete system of the internal workings of the body and the electrical circuitry inherent to the body.
It is a tremendous tool that assists the body in healing itself, and is particularity effective in delivering the benefits of essential oils throughout the body.
Vita-Flex is said to have originated in Tibet over five thousand years ago, long before acupuncture was developed. It was perfected in modern times by Stanley Burroughs, and is now primarily taught by Tom Woloshyn.
Vita-Flex can be practiced with or without essential oils. Normally, essential oils are used because they increase it’s effectiveness.
Vita-Flex is based on a complete network of reflex points that stimulate all the internal body systems. Oils are applied to specific contact points, and 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, or loss of oxygen, allowing the energy to flow once more.
There are more than 1,400 Vita-Flex points throughout the human body, encompassing the entire realm of body and mind, that are capable of releasing many kinds of tension, congestion, and imbalances. Vita-Flex taps into and supports the body’s self-regulating system to allow rapid healing.
Vita-flex treatment is said to benefit many different health issues and conditions by using the body’s own “self-regulating or balancing process.” (Woloshyn, 2007)
While similar to reflexology, according to Tom Woloshyn, Vita-Flex is “a more extensive and comprehensive therapy because it is applied throughout many more areas of the body.” (Woloshyn, 2007) Whereas reflexology is only done on the feet, the vita-flex massage technique can be applied almost anywhere.
In addition, reflexology uses steady and constant stimulation for a period of time. Vita Flex uses a rolling and releasing motion that involves placing all four fingers flat on the skin, rolling onto the fingertips, and continuing over onto the fingernail
