Objectives: This study aimed to investigate the effects of auricular acupressure on anxiety and sleep among patients undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer.

Methods: A nonequivalent control group nonsynchronized design was employed. The experimental group received auricular acupressure on specific acupoints (shenmen, heart, kidney, subcortex), and the control group received auricular acupressure on helix 1, helix 2, helix 3, and helix 4 three times a day for three weeks. A total of 60 women were divided into an experimental (n=30) and control (n=30) group. Patient recruitment occurred between May and August 2019. The collected data were analyzed by a chi-square test, paired t-test, and independent t-tests using the SPSS 21.0 program.

Results: There was a significant decrease in anxiety(t=4.61, p=<.001) and increase in sleep(t=3.81, p=<.001) in the experimental group compared to the control group.

Conclusions: The findings confirm that auricular acupressure is an effective nursing intervention to decrease anxiety felt by patients undergoing chemotherapy and to increase the quality of their sleep.
