LEVELLAND – South Plains College Physical Therapist Assistants Program will host a fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 23 in the Allied Health Building in Gentry Square. 

Donations will be accepted for participants who want to experience chair massages provided by PTA students. The donations are based on the amount of time participants want to spend in the chair. For $10, patrons will receive a 10 minute through the clothes massage. 

“The massages that the students will be giving are for comfort and not for treatment purposes,” said Jackie Underwood, program coordinator and advisor for SPC PTA program. 

Patrons can get their shoulders, neck and back massaged during the fundraiser. 

Underwood said third semester students receive hands on experience prior to starting clinicals in the fall. 

Proceeds from the event will be used to send students to the Texas Physical Therapy Association Annual Conference Oct. 13-14 in the Woodlands.
