Introduction: Hypertension is one of the most common health problems with chronic consequences which its management is mainly related to self-care status. One of the factors in achieving better psychological self-care is learning self-healing techniques. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of self-healing method on lifestyle and improvement of symptoms in women with hypertension.
Materials and Methods: The present quasi-experimental study was conducted with pre-test, post-test and two-month follow-up on two experimental and control groups. Thirty female patients with hypertension were selected from one of the clinics in Isfahan province through available sampling and then randomly assigned to two groups (n=15). Data collected by valid questionnaire of Taghizadeh and Rezvani relaxed lifestyle questionnaire (2017) and a researcher made demographic form and then analyzed using repeated measures statistical method.
Results: The results showed that self-healing training had a significant effect on increasing relaxation-oriented lifestyle and reducing and stabilizing participants' blood pressure after the test and follow-up (P <0.05).
Conclusion: It seems that self-healing training by reducing physiological stress through the treatment of destructive cellular memories, lifestyle modification and training relaxation techniques, has increased relaxation and decreased blood pressure in patients. Therefore, this method can be used as a new approach with relatively lasting effects to increase the self-care skills of patients with hypertension in health-related centers.
