Massage Envy Therapists Face Sexual Assault Allegations From Over 180 Women

"Massage Envy is a partner in crime", Ingram said, due to protecting the alleged sexual predators.

"It is imperative that the company, in all approximately 1,200 locations, implement proper screening, training, and supervision of its employees and contractors", said Wayne Cohen, one of the victim's lawyers.

Ingram, who had detailed the incident in court, said that once she got home from the spa that day in 2015, she called back to speak to a manager but was ignored.

Dozens of women have filed a complaint against Massage Envy saying they were victims of sexual assault at the hands of their therapists according to BuzzFeed. Numerous lawsuits claim the reports were ignored or mishandled by the company.

She told CBS News that she was groped "roughly and aggressively" by Deiter, noting that she was "really in a state of shock, disbelief, fear". She says it started when James Deiter began rubbing his groin against her.

In December 2016, our Madison sister station WKOW-TV reported that a 22-year-old woman accused 33-year-old Christopher Ehrett of sexually assaulting her during a session at a Massage Envy in Fitchburg.

After Ingram filed a formal police report, Deiter pleaded guilty to sexually molesting a total of nine female clients and is now behind bars. Deiter was sacked after Ingram filed a police report.

"No one ever reached out to me, to ask how I was doing or to see if they could support me after their employees was convicted, so it was was no longer just an alleged assault", Dick said during the "Today" segment.

Massage Envy said in a statement: "We hold franchise owners accountable to our policies and, when we say nothing is more important to us than treating clients with respect and giving them a safe, professional experience, we mean it". She opted instead to phone the police, and Deiter admitted to assaulting Ingram during questioning.

Buzzfeed reported that Massage Envy claimed in court documents that it isn't liable for sexual assaults that happen at its franchised locations.

The exposé also included an agreement requiring franchisees to purchase insurance "that protects them and the national company against at least three sexual assault claims per year".
