Background: Blood pressure (BP) levels variety throughout the day, both by internal stimuli and the influence of external factors. The BP which measured at the clinic are higher than self measurement at home. Deep breathing (DB) is a technique which deep breaths <10x/minute,which can lower BP through activation of chemoreceptors and baroreceptors. The aim of this study is to know the effect of DB on systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic
blood pressure (DBP) in the normo-prehypertensive population
