AIM: This research was carried out to investigate the effect of Benson relaxation techniques on the quality of sleep in cancer patients. METHODS: This research was a quantitative research with quasi-experimental pre- and post-test design with control group. Research conducted in the room Class 3 Bougainvillea and Teratai RSUD Prof. Dr. Margono Soekarjo Purwokerto. The sample in this study was 20 respondents of the intervention group and 20 respondents of the control group. The intervention group received 6 times Benson relaxation intervention with frequency 3 times a day for 2 days and the control group was given standard care. The data were collected from January to February 2021. Quality of sleep was measured before and after the intervention using the Pittsburgh quality of sleep index (PSQI) questionnaire. The hypothesis test was performed using Mann–Whitney U-test aiming to measure the effect size using d Cohen. RESULTS: The results obtained mean values for PSQI score with median (min-max) intervention group 3.50 (2.00–7.00) and control group 0.50 (−2.00–3.00) and the results obtained p = 0.001. Clinically and statistically, there was a significant effect of Benson relaxation on decreasing PSQI score. The effect size test results in 2.33, which means that Benson relaxation has a great effect on the decrease in PSQI score. CONCLUSION: Benson relaxation clinically and statistically affects the decrease in PSQI score of cancer patients recommended in nursing interventions as one of the complementary therapies.
