The Vita-Flex Roller or "Relax-a-Roller" is a foot and body massager designed specifically to imitate Vita-Flex pressure point therapy. Vita-Flex is a therapy developed by Stanley Burroughs in the late 1920's. The technique is based on the principle that by activating a pressure point, another part of the body may be affected. Any area of the body can thus be affected by the proper activation of reflex points located throughout the body. Stanley Borroughs found this to be a very effective massage treatment and wanted to make this more available to the public. From this desire he created a foot and body massager that has become the Vita-Flex Roller.
Note: Essential oils can be used with the roller for an enhanced experience. People that work while standing on their feet all day will benefit from regular use of the Vita-Flex Roller.
What is included? This item is sold individually and includes 1 Small Vita-Flex Roller with instructions.
How to Use: If desired, first apply essential oils to the botttom of the foot and then roll the foot over the Vita-Flex Roller for 30 to 60 seconds. This can also be done almost anywhere on the body, though bony areas should be cushioned with a towel. If the feet are too sensitive at first, a tube sock can be pulled over one end of the Vita-Flex Roller. (Essential oils do not have to be used, but do enhance the effectiveness of the roller).
