The main objectives of the study were, To evaluate the effectiveness of Reflexology on pain among women undergone abdominal hysterectomy. To evaluate the effectiveness of Reflexology on anxiety among women undergone abdominal hysterectomy. The research design selected for the study was non equivalent pretest posttest control group design.60 samples were selected by using purposive sampling technique (30 in experimental group,30 in control group). Pre-test pain and anxiety level was estimated on the second post-operative day by using Visual Analogue Pain Scale and Modified Spillberger State Trait Anxiety Questionnaire followed by Reflexology (foot massage)for experimental group.

The calculated T Value is 23.86 is higher than the table value 2.042. The pre-test mean value for anxiety is 46.93 and pre-test SD is 1.50 and post-test mean is 28.76 and post-test SD is 4.82. The mean difference is 18.16. The calculated T Value is 22.68 is higher than the table value 2.042.
