Two Sacramento County Women Accuse Massage Envy Therapists, Franchises of Sexual Misconduct

  • Dozens accuse massage therapists at large franchise of sexual misconduct

"I guess getting any of those services when you're in a room by yourself with someone of the opposite sex or whatever that does cross your mind, but it never occurred to me", Taylor said. The woman reported him and he was sacked.

The lawsuit also claims the therapist had a criminal record for felony assault, and the woman's attorney argued that the Massage Envy franchise and its parent company are responsible for damaged to the woman because they employed the therapist, despite that warning sign.

Per the BuzzFeed News article, numerous victims believe their claims were mishandled or ignored by employees and owners of the individual Massage Envy Spas.

In a statement, it said: "We are constantly listening, learning and looking at how we can do more, including how we support franchised locations with best practices in handling these incidents and supporting their clients". James Deiter, who's in his 60s, is serving a 6 1/2- to 13-year prison sentence for sexually assaulting nine women at a Pennsylvania Massage Envy where he'd been a massage therapist for years.

Massage Envy has over 1,200 locations nationwide with alleged sexual assault in many different locations. Another pregnant woman reported opening her eyes to see her therapist sucking on her nipple. "I said, 'That's the guy right there, ' and they arrested him".

Court documents confirm the case was dismissed in December 2012, and the woman's lawyer, Stephen Morris, said the legal action was settled by a "substantial" payment from one or more of the defendants. "It's centered around defusing the situation so the client doesn't call the police", one former manager explained. In Florida, a woman said she tried to push away her massage therapist as he licked her vagina. Massage Envy told CBS News their therapists have done 125 million massages over the past 15 years.

Our understanding of Florida Law is that licensed health care practitioners (ie, therapists) must report allegations of sexual misconduct to the Department of Health.

"The day changed my life forever", Ingram told BuzzFeed.

KGW reported Monday that Rosario and two other Massage Envy therapists at Springfield and Portland locations have had their licenses revoked by the Oregon Board of Massage Therapists since 2012 due to sex abuse allegations.

She said she agreed to share her story in hopes of empowering other women to immediately report any incident of sexual assault or unwanted touching.
