Poor lymph circulation may cause unwanted water retention due to the lymph flow “bottling up” which results in a bloated or swollen appearance.

After a “detox specific treatment” clients have claimed to feel rejuvenated and cleansed as well as finding a greater sense of clarity and well being.
Therefore reflexology may be an excellent way to cleanse your system naturally whilst afterwards of course drinking lots of water!
