Considering on blood pressure, both of systolic and diastolic blood pressure of the experimental group was decreased from the average of blood pressure at 134.2(SD=17.8)/80.4(SD=11.1) to 125.1(SD=15.7)/77.3(SD=9.3) mmHg, comparing between before and after programmed respectively. While the control group also found some changes in this indicator, the average of blood pressure changed from 127.2(SD=20.6)/78.8(SD=13.5) to 125.5(SD=19.3)/78.1(SD=11.1) mmHg, at before and after programmed respectively.
