- Massage therapy effectively counteracts all the issues that can develop from extensive sitting. Many people believe that massage therapy is most effective for active people. However, people who work in offices and positions where they are either constantly standing or constantly sitting also can develop issues that massage therapy can assist with.

In one study, depressed and anxious patients were significantly more relaxed and happier with reduced stress levels following their massage therapy.

If you have problems sleeping, whether from an unknown cause or something stressful and potentially painful like chemo or radiation therapy, then massage therapy can help get your mind and body in a better place to make sleeping easier and more restful.
