Massage Envy therapists accused of 180 sexual assaults

A chain of massage spas with almost 1,200 locations across the nation is facing hundreds of sexual assault complaints amid concerns that it ignored or mishandled the allegations.

At least 180 people have filed sexual assault civil suits, police reports or complaints to state boards against Massage Envy, its franchises and their employees, according to a Buzzfeed News investigation.

Massage Envy, responding to an inquiry from USA TODAY, called the incidents "heartbreaking" and said they occurred over 15 years among 125 million massages.

BuzzFeed, however, says lawyers for the victims maintain many more people have settled claims outside the courts with no paper trail. The article, by investigative writer Katie J.M. Baker, also points out that most sexual assault victims file no complaints at all.
