Ashcraft fielded questions as he explained the benefits and techniques of massage therapy and shared a self-help technique to combat carpal tunnel syndrome. Ashcraft was accompanied by three students from the program. The students performed chair massage and demonstrated a forearm self-massage technique that everyone in the studio was trying before the show was over.
“The questions KC Lupp asked were perfect for Ross to inform the audience about the Massage Therapy program at Community Care College and I thought the forearm demonstration was a good one to do on yourself,” said Kimberly Hester, Medical Assisting Instructor at CCC.
