Vita-Flex means “vitality through the reflexes”. It is a specific form of hand and foot massage that helps deliver essential oils throughout the body. It is based on a complete network of reflex points that stimulate all the internal body systems. We use the application of essential oils to these vita-flex points to target specific health issues. For headaches we apply lemon, Pain blend, or Peppermint to the big toes – which are connected to the brain. For respiratory congestion we might use a eucalyptus blend. The Raindrop method can be applied to the spinal points on the feet if you cannot apply oils to your own spine. Vita-Flex is also a good technique to use for individuals with asthma so the essential oils do not irritate the respiratory tract. Besides targeting specific areas of the body, for most people, having your feet massaged just feels good and can be soothing to the body and the mind.
Vita-Flex can also be used on dogs and horses! Check out dilutions for your dog before applying oils. I am working on getting a dog chart onto the site.
