Respiratory rate, heart rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and breathe hold time were selected as physiological variables and were measured using the standardized tests before and after given the treatment. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was employed to analysis the data statistically. In results, significant effects were observed on respiratory rate, heart rate, systolic blood pressure and breathe hold time whereas in case of diastolic blood pressure, insignificant result was found.
