Abstract: The purpose of the research is to analize the effect of acupressure therapy on the level of foot sensitivity in diabetic patients. The research used quasy experiment design with non-equivalent control group which divided into experimental group and control group. Sample of this research is 30 people divided into15 people as the experimental group and 15 people as a control group. Instruments of this research using monofilament in both groups to measuring respondent foot sensitivity. The experimental group were given intervention with acupressure therapy three times in 1 week. Data then analyzed into univariate and bivariate using independent t test dan dependent t test. The result of the research showed that mean level of foot sensitivity before acupressure therapy was 5.93 points and mean level of foot sensitivity after acupressure therapy was 7.14 poin. There is increase in the foot sensitivity after given intervention with p value 0,000 (<0,05). And it’ mean that acupressure therapy are effective against increasing the foot sensitivity.
