Update: Arizona Woman Alleges Sexual Assault from Massage Envy Therapist

December 14, 2017 – Beth Fox, a mother of 2 who lives in Tempe, Arizona, was enjoying a massage in 2014 when she claims her masseur touched her inappropriately with his mouth and nearly ruined her life. The masseur eventually pled guilty to one count of attempt to commit sexual abuse and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 10 years of probation. He also lost his license to work as a masseur in Arizona.

What’s the Problem?

November 27, 2017 – At least 180 people to date have filed complaints in the form of sexual assault civil lawsuits, police reports, or objections to state boards against Massage Envy, according to a Buzzfeed News investigation.

The report says that in addition to the 180 alleged victims, many more have been offered settlements to keep their cases out of court. Katie J.M. Baker, the investigative writer who authored the report, pointed out that the vast majority of sexual assault victims never file a complaint.

Massage Envy does not require franchisees to notify police in the event of a sexual assault complaint, except where specified by local law. The company does, however, require internal investigations into the incidents, but provides little guidance on how to go about them, according to BuzzFeed.

Founded in 2002, Massage Envy has franchises in all 50 U.S. states except Wyoming. The company claims to have over 35,000 “dedicated wellness professionals” whose core values include striving “to earn and to keep the trust of those we serve by delivering exceptional service” to its more than 1.5 million members and guests.

Massage Envy responded to the complaints with the word “heartbreaking,” saying they occurred over 15 years and some 125 million massages.

“We believe that even one incident is too many,” the company said in a statement to USA TODAY. “We are constantly listening, learning and evaluating how we can continue to strengthen our policies with respect to handling of these issues.”
