Only in very rare cases or when offering "samplers" at health fairs and such. In the rare case I offer a 30 minute Rwo Shur for someone with an acute condition like the flu. The session is deep and very focused, while still covering all the reflexes very quickly. I will only offer the 30 minute session if I know the client can return within the week.

This is how I do my samplers. It gives them enough of a "taste" to see the difference between reflexology and a foot massage. That's the only benefit I can see. I've never had reports after a sampler session to prove that it is as beneficial as a full session. Then again, I've not had reports from each recepient (sp? it's late) either.
A 30 minute Hand Reflexology session or a 15 minute Auricular Therapy session is a whole different matter though. If you're looking to market shorter sessions and are trained in those styles of Reflexology too that might be an option. The hand reflexology would be easy to market to the company you've talking about - carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive use strain candidates might be a good target market. One doesn't realize how much strain and tension they hold in their hands until a good hand massage or hand reflexology is given!
