The research tools were the health promotion program and questionnaires which were tested through content validation by 3 experts with Content Validity Index for 0.67 to 1.0. The experimental group receivedthe health promotion program with Standing Breathing Meditation Exercise SKT 2 during September-October 2018 for 8 weeks, while the control group received standard nursing care. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, paired t-test and independent t-tests. The findings found that the average systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure of the experimental group after participating in the program were significantly lower than before participating in the program (p < .05).
