Florida Massage Therapists Lose License Due to Sexual Misconduct Complaints

Four licensed massage therapists in Florida have lost their license following disciplinary actions brought by the Florida Department of Health Board of Massage Therapy alleging sexual misconduct. In each instance, the massage therapist elected to relinquish the license in response to an investigation.  These disciplinary Orders continue a long and disturbing trend of sexual misconduct by massage therapists statewide. Under Florida law, massage therapists occupy positions of trust and all sexual activity between massage therapist and clients is strictly prohibited.

Two of the accused massage therapist had been employed and Hand and Stone Spa locations.

(1) Carlos Amador of Hand and Stone Massage in Naples – A Final Order of discipline was entered on April 30, 2018 against his license (which has been voluntarily relinquished) following an allegation that he touched the vagina and breasts of a 28-year old client multiple times during the massage.  Carlos Amador admitted to the sexual misconduct.

(2) David Nazario of Hand and Stone Massage in Orlando A Final Order of discipline was entered on April 30, 2018 against his license (which has been voluntarily relinquished) following an allegation that he exposed the breasts and touched the vagina of a 41-year old client during a massage.

(3) James A. Russell of Massage Delray in Delray Beach  A Final Order of discipline was entered on April 30, 2018 against his license (which has been voluntarily relinquished) following an allegation that he put his fingers inside the vagina of a female client during a massage.

(4)  Brandi C. Hill of Brooksville –  A Final Order of discipline was entered against his license (which has been voluntarily relinquished) after Hill was arrested for two counts of felony unlawful sexual activity with a minor.  The arrest report from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office indicates on two separate occasions between May 8, 2017 and June 26, 2017, Hill provided a minor with alcohol and marijuana; then inserted a vibrator and a dildo into D.
