Palliative cancer patients undergo severe pain, and pharmacological therapy in some cases cannot fully relieve pain. Self-selected Individual Music Therapy (SeLIMuT) is non-pharmacological relaxation stimulating complementary therapy which is safe, accessible, inexpensive and effective. The study aimed to identify effect of SeLIMuT to pain in palliative cancer patients. The study was a quasi experiment- pre-test and post-test design using comparison group with purposive and consecutive sampling carried out at inpatient ward I of Dr Sardjito Hospital Yogyakarta. Respondentswere divided into intervention group (n=23) with SeLIMuT therapy four times each within 15-20 minutes and control group (n=23) without therapy. Pain was assessed in both groups using Visual Analog Scale (VAS). The result of the study showed that there was significant difference in average pre-post in both groups with score of p=0.001 (p<0.05). Pain decrease occurred in SeLIMuT group after intervention with score of mean 2.144 (0.91). Pain decrease in SeLIMuT group was also clinically significant (mean?1.0). Increase in pain level occurred in the control group with score of mean-0.03 (0.15). SeLIMuT intervention both statistically and clinically affected pain level in palliative cancer patients. SeLIMuT was effective in reducing pain
