ED Magedson – Founder
Massage Envy655 East 400 South Suite B Salt Lake City, Utah United States of America
I was a massage therapist for Massage Envy for 18 months. In Dec '09, I had a (regular, repeat) male client intentionally expose his genitals to me during a massage. He pulled the drape up and across his pelvis. I yanked it back down, and before I could even walk out the door, he did it again.
I ended the session early and complained to management. Management assured me they would cancel his membership. A month later (Jan, '10), I saw him walking down the hallway on his way to get another massage at our clinic.
I asked management what had happened. They said that they explained to him that his behavior was inappropriate (did they mention illegal?) and he said he was sorry, so they decided not to cancel his membership.
I quit, since I will not work for a company that knowingly places their therapists (and other clients) at risk for sexual harrasment or sexual assault. This client was welcomed back, so it stands to reason that many others have been as well.
Massage is a liscenced, theraputic pratice trying to rise above its sorrid associations. Massage Envy sends the message to clients and its therapists that behavior of the sort exhibited by my former client is appropriate. It's not, so don't work there, and don't get massage there.
