Massage Envy therapists accused of sexual assault by more than 180 women

Over 180 Women Have Accused Massage Envy Employees of Sexual Assault

Numerous accusers have now sued the chain, and subsequent court records reportedly show that multiple women had complained to Massage Envy about Deiter's actions prior to Ingram's report.

Dozens of people have accused massage therapists of sexual misconduct at Massage Envy, according to a BuzzFeed report.

Some complained about inappropriate touching, but others reported even more vile interactions, including a masseur who allegedly grabbed a non-consenting woman by the hair and ejaculated on her face, according to court records. The company also says it isn't liable for sexual assaults that take place at the spas because the individual locations are franchisees.

"We hold franchise owners accountable to our policies and, when we say nothing is more important to us than treating clients with respect and giving them a safe, professional experience, we mean it."
In Pinellas and Hillsborough counties, there are 11 Massage Envy locations, according to the company's website.

Sadly, many other claims surface in Buzzfeed's report, which also touches upon Massage Envy's inability to provide much comment on the allegations for legal reasons. One incident involved a "California woman who said she opened her eyes during a prenatal massage to find her massage therapist sucking on her nipple".

BuzzFeed found that Massage Envy "has never had to answer in open court to a victim of sexual assault at one of its spas", but that could change with a civil lawsuit headed to court in January. The report cites incidents of groping and other violations. The manager refused to end the current spa session and instead she "invited me in to talk about my services", Ingram claimed.

Massage Envy therapists faced sexual harassment allegations from more than 180 women, BuzzFeed reported its investigation revealed. Regardless, Ingram noted that the spa had "enthusiastically recommended" him as a massage therapist.

Adam Horowitz, a lawyer who has worked on over twenty cases against Massage Envy, told NBC News that likely the number is higher than 180. The news outlet said massage providers in most states are not legally mandated to report client allegations of sexual assault made in their facilities. "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".
