Hypertension is an abnormal increase in blood pressure in the arteries continuously over a period of time. This occurs when the arterio-arterioles constrict. The constriction of the arterioles makes it difficult for blood to flow and increases the pressure against the artery walls. Hypertension increases the workload of the heart and arteries which, if continued, can cause damage to the heart and blood vessels. The purpose of this study was to prove the reduction of high blood pressure in the combination of Neuromuscular Taping and Deep Breathing Exercise. The type of research used is experimental research with a pre and post test research design. The results of the Wilcoxon Signed Rank statistical test showed that there was no difference in systolic pressure after the intervention was seen from the pre-test and post-p-value of 0.063, as well as diastolic pressure there was no difference in the effect of the intervention seen from the results. pre-test and post-test p-value 0.157. Thus it can be concluded that based on the results of the study, slow deep breathing and neuromuscular taping both have an effect, but there is no difference in the effect on reducing blood pressure in patients with hypertension.
