A "rectifiable $n$-varifold" is an equivalent class of $H^n$-measurable $n$-rectifiable sets. That is, the objects discussed in the last theorem. I will state the Allard regularity theorem, which says that under some conditions, a varifold which is nearly minimal is always a $C^{1,\alpha}$ submanifold. And then I will try to talk as much as possible about its proof.
