Spa being sued for “sexual assault” during massage sessions

By Jamie Ostroff, NBC4 News Investigates

LANCASTER, Ohio (WCMH)–Three women are suing a spa in Lancaster, Ohio. Each said they went for a relaxing massage and were violated.

Chicago-based Attorney Beth Fegan filed the lawsuit on behalf of Jane Does 1, 2, and 3, against Natural Remedies Massage.

“It’s really disturbing to know that you can place your trust in a business, and they’ll turn around and use that to abuse you,” Fegan said.

Because neither the owner of the business nor the massage therapist has been charged with a crime, NBC4 Investigates is not releasing their names.

The lawsuit claims the same massage therapist sexually assaulted each woman during their appointments by exposing and touching their genitals. According to the lawsuit, one of the Jane Does complained to the owner of Natural Remedies, who took no action.

“I think that we’re going to find that a long line of women have been abused and that the owner of the business knew about it,” Fegan said.
