DENVER – Some people may consider a massage a luxury, but for Chanda Hinton, it’s more. She relies on regular massages, yoga sessions, and acupuncture to function.
“It’s pretty incredible all the things alternative therapies have provided me,” said Hinton…

Her sister Crystal, who happens to be a yoga instructor, suggested she try alternative therapies. “To me, it was completely foreign, I didn’t know what integrated therapies were, I’m so glad I know what they are now,” said Hinton…

Hinton credits Medicaid for helping her get in and out of bed everyday, but she says it’s the alternative therapies that have allowed her to live a fuller life.
