Maintenance of a healthy state in this era has received a paradigm shift. With the demand of day-to-day activities, there is need for the body to be conditioned to meet its obligation without breaking down. This study investigated psycho-physio therapy and its inherent benefits. The participants were one hundred and sixty non-academic staff from University of Lagos and Federal College of Education, Akoka, Lagos. They were purposively selected based on sedentary nature of their responsibilities. The participants were further selected randomly into four groups of three experimental and one control. Three hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Mean, standard deviation and T-test were used to analyse data. There was a significant difference in the psycho therapy of the sexes [male subjects - (Experimental Group 1: 12.10 >9.40 and Control Group: 10.35>10.10)]; [female subjects - (Experimental Group 1: 12.05 >9.55 and Control Group: 10.10>9.85)]. A slight significance difference were observed in the physiotherapy of the sexes [male subjects - (Experimental Group 2: 147.60 < 197.60 and Control Group: 185.25<190.25)]; [female subjects - (Experimental Group 2: 143.15 <193.40 and Control Group: 182.10<187.70)]. It was therefore concluded that both therapies have significant impact on health of individuals. Moreover, it was recommended that an holistic approach should be adopted in prescribing physical activity programmes.
