In order to collect data, demographic and anxiety questionnaires were used. Interventions were subsequently performed in two sessions every other day for 45 to 90 mi and anxiety level of the patients was measured before and after intervention. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, paired - t-test, t-test, Willcoxon and Chi square. Results: Mean anxiety levels in experimental group were (48.874.28) and (7.372.42) before and after intervention, respectively therefore it statistically showed a significant difference (P<0.001). Mean anxiety level in control group was (49.105.13) before intervention and it was (48.405.31) after intervention, so it statistically showed a significant difference (P<0.001).
