Two massage therapists in Fort Lauderdale have had their licenses suspended after female clients said they were touched inappropriately during their sessions.
Robert Brush, of Hands on Health of South Florida, and Sandro Bernado Moliere, formerly of Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, can no longer practice massage therapy in Florida, according to reports by the Florida Department of Health.
The report said Brush performed a massage on July 4 on a 48-year-old woman.
The woman said Brush repeatedly touched her vagina and groped her breasts during the massage, the report said. At the end of the session, Brush hugged the woman and gave her a kiss on the cheek, the health department said.
Moliere performed a massage May 18 on a 31-year-old woman.
The woman kept her underwear on for the session, but Moliere pushed her underwear down, exposing her buttocks, the report said. Toward the end of the session, Moliere groped the woman's breasts, the report said.
The woman reported Moliere to the health department, and Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa fired him in June, the report said.
Brush and Moliere have not been criminally charged.
