The control group received aerobic exercise on five days per week for a month, while the experimental group was assigned to do spontaneous respiratory modulation on two days per week and aerobic exercise on five days per week for a month.

Outcome measures: Systolic blood pressure and Diastolic blood pressure was evaluated using sphygmomanometer.

Results: Significant improvements in all outcome parameters were observed in response to the intervention. Between group analysis showed a statistically significant difference in SBP (P=0.000) and DBP (P=0.008)
