The Dangers of Massage Therapists

Massage therapists should create a safe and relaxing environment for clients. This false sense of security causes many patients to drop their guard. 

Here’s how massage therapists can exploit this vulnerability:

  • Secluded environment. Massage sessions often take place in private rooms with limited visibility. This can embolden an employee to take advantage of victims.
  • Disrobement. Clients are partially or fully undressed during a massage. This lack of clothing makes them more susceptible to unwanted touching.
  • Manipulation. Victims rely on massage therapists to act appropriately. Therapists can use this trust to disguise sexual contact.

It’s important to remember that any unwanted sexual contact is assault, regardless of duration or intensity. Speak with Silva Injury Law to learn about your rights after a ​​massage therapist sexual assault.

How to Report an Inappropriate Massage Therapist

If you feel safe and comfortable doing so, report the assault to the appropriate authorities. Reporting the assault initiates an official investigation and helps prevent future incidents by holding the perpetrator accountable.

First, you can report the behavior to the California Massage Therapy Council. This will notify the licensing board of the assault and may prevent the employee from continuing to work in the profession. 

Also, you can notify your local police department to inquire about how to report a massage therapist. Sexual assault is a crime and can lead to thousands of dollars in fines and years in prison.

What to Do After an Assault

Finding justice after experiencing sexual assault by a massage therapist can be a daunting and emotionally taxing process. However, it’s essential to know that you have rights and avenues for seeking justice. 

Here are steps you can take to pursue accountability and reclaim your sense of empowerment:

  • Seek medical attention. It’s crucial to prioritize your physical and mental well-being in the aftermath of a sexual assault. Seek medical attention as soon as possible to address injuries and access support services such as counseling or therapy. 
  • Retain evidence. Preserve any evidence related to the assault, such as text messages, emails, or physical injuries. Be sure to take photos of any visible injuries or property damage. 
  • Meet with an attorney. Consider speaking with a knowledgeable attorney who handles cases of sexual assault. They can identify possible legal options and help you file a claim against the liable party.
