Vitaflex is an ancient Tibetan healing methodology and was brought to the United States in 1920s by Stanley Burroughs.


Vitaflex is a term coined by Stanley Burroughs from the phrase: "Vitality Through the Reflexes." It consists of specialized form of digital electrical stimulation using the pads and nails of the fingers in a rolling motion to fire voltages into the body through reflex points. Vitaflex is effective as a technique in and of itself while aromatherapy (anointing with essential oils) is also effective independent of any other modality. By combining the two, the effectiveness of both is enhanced.

How does it work?

The voltages produced by Vitaflex induce currents along the nerve pathways. The molecules of essential oils are also electrical in nature and move along nerve pathways. Sickness is often the result of blocked nerve pathways. Vitaflex helps move the healing molecules of essential oils along these pathways. When a gap or malfunction is encountered along the way, the oils and voltages jump-start faulty electrical circuitry, helping to restore proper function. It works best when oils and Vitaflex are applied at Vitaflex points on the body.
