  4 patients, both male and female, ages 50-52, with hypertension for 22 years, were given 20 minutes of foot reflexology. In both cases the blood pressure dropped from 170/110 to 154/100 and from 150/90 to 130/80. Two patients, one which was a 58 year old man, with dizziness and low blood pressure for 24 years, was given 30 minutes of foot reflexology. After the treatment, blood pressure rose from 105/70 to 120/75. The other 3 cases also showed improvement in their blood pressure.



Foot reflexology was found to be effective for relief of hypertension and hypotension.
