The idea is to conveniently fit the techniques into the daily schedule. Factors to consider are the time available and finding a technique for the time and place.
There are ways to create time. You can do other things and still work on yourself. There is much possible free time, such as when riding in a car as a passenger, while watching television, while visiting with friends, or while talking on the phone. Keeping a foot roller at the dining room table makes it convenient for use while sipping coffee or talking after meals. Evaluate your schedule and discover what time you can create.
Set up specific times during the day for specific activities. Foot rolling can be done at the breakfast table, hand work on the way to work, for example. Make it a habit and you will find yourself doing it almost unconsciously. For further information see "Time Planning for Consistency. To fit application of techniques into your daily schedule, use this chart to consider available time. Tie your program into something you do regularly, such as watching the evening news on television.
It may not always be appropriate to remove one's shoes to work on feet, for example. Pick a starting point, choose an area of interest.
Start with a limited number of specific techniques which fit conveniently into the daily schedule. An over-burdening, inconvenient program will be hard to stick with. Select techniques appropriate to you. See "Finding a Technique for Time and Place". See "Techniques". The chapter includes easy-to-learn, quickly applied techniques as well as techniques which can be developed. Make a rough plan of when to apply the techniques.
See "Time Planning for Consistency.
If your time is limited, plan around that factor. If you have more time available, your plan may reflect that as a factor. Get started. Work with the area of interest daily according to your time available.
At the end of a week, review your program. By this time, some techniques may or may not fit naturally into your day. Re-evaluate the time available and appropriate techniques. If you should happen to miss a day here or there, just go back to your program the next day. If you find that you are missing more days than not, or if you don't seem to follow your program completely every day, review your program and your goals.
Have you chosen too ambitious a program with too many areas and not enough time in your day to work them? Are you just discouraged with your lack of progress? For encouragement declare a break in your program and give yourself time to re-assess your goals and your available time. During your week's re-assessment, pick one area to work.
The results in that one area should give you the incentive to go on. The cumulative effect of their application calls for further exploration. This might mean the addition of a technique to work a given area or finding a new area of interest. To further explore an area of interest, consider other techniques relevant to the area.
For example, to a program of grip techniques, add thumb and finger walking techniques for variety. Accomplishment in working with one area leads to the selection of a new one. See "Special Interests" and "Body Parts. To spend less time with it, choose a quick and easy technique. How long should I work on my hands and feet? This is a matter of individual choice. Consistency is the important thing. Working five minutes every day, for example, is preferable to occasional work for twenty minutes.
How often should I work on my hands and feet? Note the affects of the technique applications and then gauge your work accordingly.
How long will it take to get results? What kind of results can I expect? The length of time needed to achieve results is an individual matter. One thought to keep in mind is that the effects begin upon the application of sensory signals. Results are the accumulation of the effects of applying sensory signals. The more time one spends applying the techniques, the more results will be possible. Which is better, working on feet or working on hands?
Both have their unique qualities. The hands have the advantage of accessibility. The impact of sensory signals on the feet is perhaps greater as the feet are the more neglected of the two sensory organs.
What can reflexology tell me about my health? Reflexology is an assessment in the body's terms. These are not the same terms as those developed by medical science for diagnosis. Reflexology provides an assessment of the self-perceiving mechanism of the body.
Which is better, reflexology work done by a practitioner or done by myself? The work of a practitioner has its benefits. The body's perspective of sensory signals as applied by a practitioner is different than that of self application.
A talented foot worker provides relaxation unavailable through self-application. The services of a practitioner are another investment in a program of wellness.
On the other hand, whether or not you have access to a practitioner, a sensory signal is a sensory signal no matter who applies it. Self application is always a valid approach. I don't seem to have the energy to get started working on my hands and feet. What should I do?

This was a replacement, because I sent my previous copy home with my daughter who lives in the Netherlands. I have found it quite helpful in identifying and treating "imbalances" that cause discomfort. I consider it part of my First Aid kit. This book is very clear in explaining how Reflexology works, how to do it, and has very easy to follow charts for common issues.
This book is great. Have lost 3 by loaning to family and friends. We use reflexology when anyone is sick or hurt. Have 6 grandchildren and when they are sick or hurt from sports they ask us to do their feet. Started doing this when they were babies. Just an all around perfect book for reflexology.
As helpful to the beginner as it is for anyone well studied and practiced in it. Helpful pictures and easy to read.
Very holistic in its practice.
One person found this helpful. I found it while going to massage school. The book is full of information and so easy to use and look up any questions you might have.
