Foot bath therapy was given for 10 minutes twice a day. The pre and post level of blood pressure was measured using sphygmomanometer. The findings revealed that there was a high statistical difference in the level of blood pressure. The pretest mean level of BP was 141.3, standard deviation is 10.24 and the post test mean is 126.3, standard deviation is 7.06,‘t’ test value is 32.67 in experimental group. In control group, the pretest mean level of BP was 155, standard deviation is 16.27 and the post test mean is 145.6, standard deviation is 16.26, ‘t’ test value is 6.22. The study concluded that there was significant reduction in Blood Pressure in experimental group as compared to the control group.
