Abstract

Introduction: Hypertension is a disease with the highest incidence in Kwanyar Public Health Center. Some complementary therapies can be used to lower blood pressure are bekam therapy and progressive muscle relaxation exercises. The purpose of this study was to analyze the difference effectivity of bekam therapy and progressive muscle relaxation exercises in blood pressure levels among patients suffered from hypertension. Method: This study used a quasi-experimental research design, where respondents were divided into two groups. The treatment group was given bekam therapy and control groups were given progressive muscle relaxation exercises. The population in this study was patients suffered from hypertension in Kwanyar Public Health Center who filled inclusion and exclusion criterias. Samples were taken using simple random sampling with total of respondents are 18. The independent variable was bekam therapy and progressive muscle relaxation exercises. While the dependent variable was systolic blood pressure. Instruments in this study were a sphygmomanometer and stethoscope. Data were analyzed using statistical paired t-test and independent t-test with a significance value α≤0,05. Result: Paired t-test results showed that bekam therapy could lower systolic blood pressure (p = 0.000) and a group of progressive muscle relaxation exercise could lower systolic blood pressure too (p = 0.002). Independent t-test indicated significant value of p = 0.011. Discussion: It can be concluded that there was a difference in blood pressure in hypertensive patients given bekam therapy and progressive muscle relaxation exercises. Both of progressive muscle relaxation exercises and bekam therapy could lower blood pressure levels, but with a different mechanism. Progressive muscle relaxation exercises involve increasing the production of nitric acid, while bekam therapy involves increased of serotonin, histamine, bradykinin and SRS. It is expected to develop further research on other exercises, such as yoga pranayama, thai-chi, etc. And bekam therapy can be applied in the community or in the public health center for lowering blood pressure in hypertensive patients. Key words: hypertension, bekam, progressive muscle relaxation exercise
