Vita Flex, which means “vitality through the reflexes,” is a very simple method to enhance the effects of your essential oils.
Vita Flex is thought to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago, and Stanley Burroughs perfected the method in the 1960's. The effects are similar to acupuncture.
It uses reflex points on the hands and feet (see diagrams below) to stimulate the corresponding internal body systems and organs. The oils are applied to the contact points, and energy is released through electrical impulses by contact between the fingertips and the reflex points.
Unlike Reflexology, Vita Flex uses a rolling and releasing motion, with medium pressure. Place four fingers on the skin, rolling onto the tips, and then to the nail. Repeat three times; This creates the electrical impulse.
Combine this technique with 1-2 drops of essential oil applied to the specific area on the foot or hand that corresponds to the organ or system of the body you wish to support.
Expect enhanced results!
