Abstract

The effect of facial reflexology on stress was studied through quasi-experimental one group pre-test post-test design. The population of present study was 230 adolescent girls studying in Sri Ramakrishna Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Coimbatore. Among them Stratified random sample of 40 participants were selected for this study. Kendler’s Stress Questionnaire (1981) was used to assess the level of stress. Facial reflexology was given for 15 minutes twice a day for a duration of six days. The level of stress was reassessed with the same questionnaire. Appropriate statistical techniques were applied to test the hypotheses. The result reveals that there is significant reduction in the level of stress after facial reflexology. The facial reflexology can also be applied in future for reducing stress.
