The present Non-randomized design uses quasi experimental control group (nonrandomized control group prestest-posttest design). This research was conducted in Dr. M. Haulussy Hospital, Ambon with research population is people with hypertension recorded in Dr. M. Haulussy Hospital, Ambon, with 4 groups respectively, 7 respondents were experimental group of relaxation handgrip,7 respondents were classical music group, 7 respondents were handgrip relaxation group and classical music, and 7 respondents were control group. Sampling method was carried out by using consecutive sampling. Blood pressure measurement instruments are calibrated mercury spigmamoteri and pain levels using numerical rating scale (NRS). The analysis used is t test. The result indicate that 3rd day systolic rate decreaseis the highest in relaxation handgrip group with significance value of 0.003 (<0.05), and 3rd day diastolic day with significance value of 0.014 (<0.05), pain level decreased on the 1st day with significance of 0.001 (<0.05).
