AbstractMassage is one of the nursing interventions carried out by a nurse in providing nursing care in providing a sense of comfort to the patient. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of Swiss massage on the sleep quality of children with thalassemia major. This research is a quasi-experiment with the nonequivalent type of control group, before-after design. The quality of children's sleep uses the Sleep Disturbance Scale for Children (SDSC). The results showed that there were differences in sleep quality in the intervention group before and after massage therapy (0.005 at α = 5). The results of the study recommend that massage therapy can be performed in children with thalassemia and as an alternative method of providing nursing interventions with impaired rest and sleep needs in children with thalassemia major.
