Seniors Benefit from Saanti Massage Stretch Program — Wheat Ridge Neighborhood Gazette December 2014

Longtime Wheat Ridge resident Melissa Chaffin, LMT, is living her dream – improving the lives and overall well being of her clients through yoga stretching.  But yoga isn’t just for the young and lithe – it’s for everyone, and especially seniors.

Chaffin owns Saanti Massage Studio in Wheat Ridge.  She was recently asked by Senior Resource Center (SRC) at 3227 Chase Street in Wheat Ridge to provide weekly onsite service for the elderly after learning about her 30-minute, full-body stretch program she designed specifically for people suffering from Parkinson’s.

“I’m pleased and humbled to have the ongoing opportunity to help people”, says Chaffin.  ” I love what I do.  It’s very rewarding when I hear how much better people feel after each session.  In addition, I’m honored to be an additional resource for SRC by serving seniors and their loved ones.”

Chaffin practices Thai Yoga Massage, a unique combination of assisted stretching, joint manipulation, and movement that provides a hose of benefits that include increased range of motion, improved balance, relaxation, stress reduction, muscle tension release, improved circulation and increased energy.   Chaffin also practices out of her home studio as well as travelling to peoples homes.
