Present study was carried out to study the effect of muscular relaxation technique and counseling on physiological parameters on subjects undergoing surgery. The study was conducted in 32 individuals between ages of 20 – 70 at Civil hospital, GMERS, Valsad and was compared with a control group (N=32) of the same age. The parameters recorded were arterial pulse, arterial blood pressure. The results show the significant differences in the recorded parameters in control (n=34) and study group (n=33). Pulse rate (75.54 to 80.17), systolic (121.49 to 126.29) and diastolic blood pressure (80.4 to 84.23) values increased in preoperative period than on admission in the control group while study group showed decrease in the preoperative value compared to that on admission Pulse rate (77.94 to 74.80), systolic (124.50 to 122.19) and diastolic blood pressure (82.88 to 81). The results obtained were analyzed for statistical significance. The results obtained were statistically significant.
