Water is important because an increase in blood circulation (reflexology increases blood circulation) means the body will get rid of waste quicker,

but water is what waste travels in.

So make sure to have enough water to get rid of any excess body waste from the blood system to avoid 24 hours of flu like symptoms.

7a. get the person receiving reflexology a big glass of water

7b. tell them to rest for the rest of the day and keep up the water
