Massage Envy therapists accused of 180 sexual assaults in online report

The popular massage chain Massage Envy is facing allegations of more than 100 sexual assaults at franchise locations according to reports

According to BuzzFeed News, Ingram is just one of more than 180 women who "have filed sexual assault lawsuits, police reports, and state board complaints against Massage Envy spas, their employees, and the national company".

The woman asked NBC 7 not to disclose her name because she is still embarrassed and emotionally scarred by the alleged rape. One woman reported that her therapist inserted his entire fist into her vagina before ejaculating on to her face.

Two women spoke to ABC News about their claims at a Pennsylvania and Virginia location where masseurs allegedly sexually assaulted them.

A woman claims David Wilson, of Greenville, acted inappropriately toward her in 2009, according to the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.

An attorney for the therapist was not available for comment on the allegations.

Numerous victims say the company's response to the allegations was insulting.

The Buzzfeed "article references 180 reported incidents", the company said in a statement to The Washington Post.

"I was really in a state of shock, disbelief, fear", said Susan Ingram. "He said he never did this before", she said. "Sit in your vehicle". "It's centered around defusing the situation so the client doesn't call the police".

While there have been no complaints at Jacksonville Massage Envy locations, seven counts of sexual assault and attempted sexual assault are pending against Qiting Duan, a former therapist at Body and Sole at the Avenues Mall. "Unfortunately, the temptation of having little or no clothes on in a dark room, for a man that is of questionable character, that might be too much of a temptation for him".

The state of Minnesota does not require massage therapists to have a license. It is unclear if that revocation was related to the alleged rape.

The massage chain has more than 1,000 locations across the country. With over 15 years and 125 million massages, even one incident is too many.

The popular spa franchise Massage Envy is under investigation by BuzzFeed.

"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".

The Chester County DA's office says Deiter was linked to nine victims, but a BuzzFeed report says it's actually a disturbing trend with other suspects harming almost 200 alleged Massage Envy victims from coast to coast.
