Background: Much research has examined the effectiveness of Pilates and mindfulness on premenstrual syndrome improvement, but the key question is whether Pilates-Mindfulness Synthesis and Exercise Technique works better than applying them alone?. Aims: The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness-Pilates combination, mindfulness training and Pilates on premenstrual syndrome in girls and women in Tehran. Method: This research is semi-experimental pretest-posttest with control group. The statistical population included girls in Tehran with 15-40 years. The sample consisted of 60 patients with premenstrual syndrome who were purposefully selected from target stadiums. From this sample, 15 persons were randomly assigned to mindfulness group (Kabat Zain, 2010), 15 to Pilates group (Atri and Shafichr('39')i, 2014), 15 to integrated group and 15 to control group.The instrument used in this study was a questionnaire for Siahbazi et al(2011) screening of premenstrual symptoms (PSST) of Iranian species. Results: There was no significant difference in premenstrual syndrome scores between experimental group and control group (P>0/29); Pilates training showed a significant difference (P <0/005). The combination of mindfulness and Pilates therapy had a significant effect on the reduction of PMS. Conclusions: Although Pilates alone reduces premenstrual syndrome, it is more effective to combine Pilates exercises and mindfulness.
