Besides the usual reflections points at the side walls and ceiling (and floor), the wall behind you is an often-overlooked source of reflections. If the wall is less than ten feet behind you, those reflections are considered early. BTW, when a mirror is not practical you can calculate reflection points as described here: RealTraps - How To Set Up a Room
Also, it's not just "points" that need treating, but a larger surrounding area. How large an area you need to cover depends on the distances involved.
