Bivariate analysis of systolic and diastolic blood pressure using Repeated Measure Anova.

Results: The intervention group I significant decrease in systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure (p-value 0.000) and intervention group II significant decrease in systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure (p-value 0.000).
