What Is Vitaflex Technique
Vitaflex Technique is an ancient Tibetan methodology that was brought to the States in the 1920s by Stanley Burroughs. He coined the term Vitaflex from the phrase "Vitality through the Reflexes."
It consists of a specialized electrical stimulation using the pads and nails of the fingers in a rolling motion to fire voltages into the body through reflex points.
How It Works
Vitaflex uses the piezoelectric property of the human skin where pressures, however slight, induce voltages and corresponding currents in the body.
When pressure is applied to the body by the Vitaflex maneuver, voltage builds up to a maximum as the finger pads roll from flat to a vertical position. Then, as the fingers flip over on the nails, which are electrical insulators, the electrical connection is suddenly broken, firing the built up electricity into the body.
Vitaflex For Specific Results
Vitaflex Techniques for Clearing the Colon
This is great for constipation, especially great for kids. While helping to open and relax the colon, this technique also administers to the bladder, ovaries, prostate, sciatic nerve, spine, thyroid and brain.

Vitaflex Technique for Sinuses
This technique is great to help clear the sinuses.
1. Vitaflex on the sinus reflex points on the necks of the toes. Oil to use is either R.C., Raven, Eucalyptus, Thieves, Oregano or Thyme.
2. Vitaflex the sinus reflex points on the face. Oil to use is R.C.
The voltages produced by Vitaflex induce currents along the nerve pathways. Vitaflex helps move the healing molecules of essential oils along these pathways. When a malfunction is encountered along the way, the oils and voltages jump-start the faulty electrical circuitry, helping to restore proper function.
Vitaflex Technique for Head and Brain
This is great for stress relief and headaches. Also wonderful to do before bedtime to help with sleep. Kids love this too.
