Joint pain is a disorder that can lead to disability and decreased performance. Spiritual cupping care is a combination of prayer and cupping that can increase endorphins and reduce pain in patients with knee joint pain. Objective: The aim of the study was to explain the effect of spiritual cupping care therapy on the reduction of knee joint pain. Methods: This research is an experimental research with non- randomized control group pretest posttest design method. The number of samples of 7 respondents selected based on sample criteria. Dependent variables in the study were endorphins and pain scale; the independent variable is spiritual cupping care. Instruments in this study were the observation sheet (numerical rating scale and endorphin hormone examination with elisa) and SOP spiritual cupping care. Data analysis was done descriptively and test of Wilcoxon, Mann- Whitney, and Kruskal Wallis. Results: Spiritual cupping care caused changes in pain scale and endorphin levels. The Kruskal Wallis test was performed to determine the spiritual effect of cupping care on the scale of pain and endorphins compared with prayer group and deep breathing groups. Spiritual cupping care provides a decreasing effect of pain scale and increased endorphins. Conclusion and recommendation: Spiritual cupping care intervention can reduce the scale of pain and increase endorphins. Further research needs to be done by involving religious leaders and relaxation experts in prayer group and deep breathing groups that are expected to help respondents to obtain optimal results.
