Data-collecting instruments included demographic information forms and Brief Fatigue Inventory (BFI) questionnaire, were evaluated before and 2 week and 4 week after intervention. Data were analyzed using SPSS-11/5 and SAS 9.1 statistical software using descriptive statistics, T test, Chi-square, Mann-Whitney Test and generalized estimation equations. Results: Mean fatigue of experimental group before intervention was 6/97± 0/84 and after two weeks, it was 5/25± 1/07, four weeks later, it was 3/92 ± 1/11. Analysis of the data revealed significant difference before and after the intervention in the experimental group(P<0/01). Conclusion: Benson relaxation can be used as a complementary therapy to decrease the fatigue in the Hemodialysis patients considering its low cost, safety and simplicity.
