This study aims to describe the results of nursing care in patients with hypertension through foot spa therapy. It used a case study method on one of the hypertensive patients. The individual was a community of Sungai Rangas Ulu Village chosen at random or accidentally. Individuals were given foot spa therapy, and observed their blood pressure by using a sphygmomanometer every day for six days. The results of the evaluation of foot spa therapy were that blood pressure had decreased. Blood pressure before intervention was 170/100 mmHg; on the last day of the intervention, blood pressure was found to be 141/94 mmHg.
