Many use massage services to relax or for pain management. It is an opportunity to unwind. However, the opposite can occur if you are taken advantage of. This was allegedly the situation when Massage Envy employee Jose Grajales of West Palm Beach was arrested on September 24, 2020.
He was accused of sexual battery for allegedly initiating unwanted sexual contact with a client during a massage by penetrating the victim’s vagina with his finger(s) while she lay on the table.
The arrest report states, the victim, who used Massage Envy’s services for ten years, confronted Grajales and notified another Massage Envy employee of what occurred after her massage.
As a result of his arrest, Grajales voluntarily surrendered his license with the Florida Department of Health in January of 2021.
Massage Envy locations across the country have been cited with sexual misconduct complaints, according to Buzzfeed news. If you have any knowledge of this incident or any others, please contact us.
