The massage parlor that bills itself as “the best massage and therapy in the Dallas area” will no longer offer services for the general public.
According to the company, which offers massage and acupuncture services to clients around the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the state Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has made it a violation of the law for them to serve as massage therapists in Dallas.
The DHHS has said that the massage parlors are operating as unlicensed health care facilities and they are prohibited from offering services that may be harmful to patients.
The DHHS, however, has never explicitly stated that they are against massage therapists being licensed and operating in the state.
The massage parLounge, which bills itself on its website as “a premier massage and wellness facility” and has offices in several parts of the state, has been a source of controversy in the past.
In 2012, a Dallas man was charged with allegedly forcing a woman to have sex with him in a massage par.
The owner of the massage salon, Jason Pascale, has denied the allegations.
“We are not anti-medical care and we do not provide medical care,” he told the Dallas Morning News.
“We are a place that welcomes and cares for our patients,” he said.
“I am sorry for anyone who was offended by my comments.
I want to assure you that I have not made those comments, and I hope this is the last time that I say that.”
