VITA FLEX THERAPY
What is Vita Flex?
Vita Flex technique was developed by the Tibetans thousands of years before acupuncture. Its literally meaning is “vitality through the reflexes”. It is a complete, scientific, workable system of controls which releases the energy of the unlimited healing powers within us.
Its theory is fascinating, and the premise is that slight pressure applied to the body creates an electric charge that is therapeutic to the body. This is known as piezoelectric.
The pressure comes from the fingers. A rolling motion of the finger pads, tips and nails, creates the stimulation similar to how an electric switch or circuit works. The technique is applied to the various reflex points of the body.
Combine this technique with 1-2 drops of essential oil applied to those areas of the feet that correspond to the system of the body you wish to support. (Vita Flex charts are available showing the nervous system connection for the electrical points throughout the body) The Vita Flex (VF) numbers correspond to locations on the feet and are noted on the foot chart.
It has a synergistic effect when combined with essential oils and it can be used to stimulate all the body systems on a physical and emotional level.
To see the various points on the feet, please see Vita Flex Chart below:

How is Vita Flex Technique applied to Different Body Systems?
These are several different ways to apply vitaflex technique:
• Clearing the Colon
Vita flex is applied along the shins and the spinal points of the feet first. Then we apply vitaflex to the soles of the feet.
Oils that may be used to assist with clearing the colon are: Cypress, Marjoram, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Patchouli, DiGize
• Respiratory System (lungs and bronchial tubes)
Vita flex is applied along the lung reflex area on the feet. Then we use vita flex between the bones and ligaments of the feet.
Oils that may be used to assist us with the lungs and the bronchial tubes are: Thyme, Oregano, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Thieves, Ravensara, RC, ImmuPower (Oregano, Thyme and Cinnamon will work best if there is a viral infection. For congestion I would use RC, Ravensara, eucalyptus or hyssop essential oils. If there is a lung infection, Thieves and ImmuPower will help.)
• Clearing Sinuses
Vita flex is applied on the sinus reflex area on the toes. Also, you may use the sinus points on the face.
Any oils that are for respiratory congestion may be used. Here are a few suggestions: RC, Ravensars, Peppermint
• Head and Brain (releases tension and headaches)
Vita flex is applied on the head and brain reflex area on the toes. Also, there is a procedure that you perform on the head that feels wonderful! Many people have had great success with this for releasing stress and tension headaches!
Any oils the client would like to hold while working on the head is fine. Oils may also be applied to the head. Here are a few suggestions: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Peace & Calming, Brain Power
• Lower Blood Pressure
Apply vita flex to the heart reflex point below ring toe on the left foot. Aroma Life is the oil of choice here. Any oils the client would like to hold while working on the head is fine. Oils may also be applied to the head.
Here are a few suggestions: Cypress, Aroma Life, Trauma Life
60 to 90 minutes - full Vita Flex
• Ear Technique (inner and auditory nerves)
This is a very lengthy and specific procedure that involves ten steps. People have experienced improved and/or restored hearing with this procedure. Also, this is an effective ear ache remedy especially when combined with helichrysum essential oil.
Here are the oil suggestions: Geranium, Purification, Helichrysum (the oil of choice), Ylang Ylang
• Lymphatic System
There are three different procedures that can be used here.
• Lymphatic Pump – This simulates the action of the foot as if one were walking. Oils are not normally used during this technique, but it is very effective following the colon clearing technique of the shin reflex points.
• Thumb Vita flex – This is also known as thumb rolling where the maneuver is applied to either side of the spine.
• Saw Maneuver or Finger Straddle – saw maneuver where the fingers slide up the spine in a sawing fashion. (The saw and thumb vita flex maneuvers are used during the Raindrop Technique.)
Suggested oils are listed below: Basil, Cypress, Marjoram, Peppermint, Wintergreen
• Hip/Atlas Vita flex
This is an interesting procedure where thumb vita flex is applied to the hip/atlas point at the collar bone. If done correctly, the hips to the atlas can re-align themselves naturally.
I had this done to me at the vita flex class I attended. Because I knew my hips were out of alignment, I volunteered to have this technique done.. My leg length was measured before and after, and sure enough, my legs were even after one thumb vita flex maneuver! Love it!
This can be done with or without the oils. If a client has muscle soreness after the session then here are a few suggestions: Basil, Cypress, Marjoram, Aroma Seiz, *Valor can be used on the reflex points before starting.
Are there any Side Effects?
Because some of the Vita Flex maneuvers can encourage detoxification of the body, someone may experience some mild side effects. These mild symptoms may include headache, sinus drainage, or soreness. The best advice is to drink plenty of water before and after a session.
