The subtitle to his book is Simple and practical reflexology techniques for developing good health and inner peace. and that says it all. Vennells says "The key to success with this technique is to practice it every day."
My routine has been to apply the hand techniques each morning. I repeat them in the evening while laying in bed. The techniques were simple to learn and I can easily apply them while laying in a dark room.
I attempted to teach the techniques to my husband by giving him a treatment. He became so relaxed that he chose not to focus on learning them. He prefers having me do his hands for him. I decided to take this to my advantage by bargaining with him.. I traded him a week's worth of reflexology treatments in exchange for his photography skills. I had him set up a shoot of my hands demonstrating the basic hand reflexology techniques used in the ten-minute self-treatment. I think the pictures turned out great. You'll have to get your hands on David Vennells' book to learn the techniques for the full treatment, but this pictorial sampler will get you started.
