Yahil Suarez Oliva Horowitz Law

Yahil Suarez Oliva of Massage Envy in Hollywood Disciplined for Sexual Misconduct

On March 31, 2021, the Florida Department of Health issued an Emergency Order restricting the massage therapy license of Yahil Suarez Oliva on account of alleged sexual misconduct at Massage Envy in the Sheridan Plaza franchise in Hollywood, Florida.  The Order prohibits Yahil Suarez Oliva from practicing massage therapy on female clients in the State of Florida.  The Emergency Order was entered in response to a sexual misconduct complaint by a female client. Oliva has been a licensed massage therapist in Florida since November 2018. 

On November 24, 2020, Oliva was employed at a Massage Envy located at 5081 Sheridan St, Hollywood, FL 33021 (Sheridan Plaza). On that day, Suarez Oliva provided a 60-minute massage to a 46-year-old female client. The client undressed and laid face down on the table with a sheet covering her buttocks. When Oliva entered the room, he uncovered one side of her buttocks.

During the massage, Suarez Oliva allegedly touched and grazed the client’s breast multiple times.  At one point, he directed his client to flip over on her back and lay face up.  According to the Emergency Order, the victim complained of a sharp shooting pain in her groin area. Oliva began massaging the area with one hand, and with the other hand he penetrated the client’s vagina using one or more fingers. He then  reportedly walked by her side and rubbed his erect penis on the client’s arm and shoulder area. As he continued to massage her, the victim told him “don’t touch me,” then got up and got dressed. The Order states that the client suffered from panic attacks for months thereafter.

When clients schedule a massage, it is to decompress from the stresses of life. They trust that the massage therapists employed at the spa are carefully vetted and safe to engage with the public. It is unacceptable, immoral and unlawful for any employee to touch a client in a sexual manner.  Clients of massage therapists are placed in isolated, vulnerable settings where they can be subject to abuse by their massage therapists. Due to the potential for abuse that is inherent under those circumstances, massage therapists must possess good judgment and good moral character in order to safely practice massage therapy.

Joseph Succar Horowitz Law

Massage Therapist Joseph Succar Restricted by Dept. of Health Due to Sexual Assault

On February 16, 2021, the Florida Department of Health issued an Emergency Order restricting the massage therapy license of  Joseph Succar, a massage therapist from Miami, on account of alleged sexual misconduct at Vitality Massage Studio located at 8870 SW 129th Terrace, Miami, FL 33176. The Order prohibits Joseph Succar from practicing massage therapy on female clients in the State of Florida.  The Emergency Order was entered in response to a sexual misconduct complaint by a female client.

Joseph Succar has been a licensed massage therapist in Florida since May 2018. Succar was employed  at a Vitality Massage Studio but was terminated in late 2020 due to speaking unprofessionally to Vitality clients.  Nevertheless, on November 11, 2020, an employee at another massage establishment reportedly referred a female client to Mr. Succar as she was desperately trying to find a therapist that day. Succar reached out to the owners of Vitality Massage to see if he could use their facility to perform the massage despite his prior termination. Vitality agreed to the arrangement, and the client came to the studio for an 8:30 p.m. appointment.

Before the massage, Succar provided client with a bath towel to drape herself.  The towel was a hand towel and only covered her buttocks. During the massage, Succar allegedly spoke to the client about sexual encounters with women which the client thought was odd. He them proceeded to perform massage and midway though, she was asked to roll over on her back. The small towel only covered her genital area, leaving her breasts exposed. Succar allegedly grazed her nipples multiple times during the massage. According to the Order, Succar then asked client to lay in a yoga-style stretch position which exposed the client’s vagina. Succar even mentioned that he wouldn’t look at her vagina but she noticed him staring at her vagina which made her uncomfortable enough to end the stretch. After the massage, Succar informed client that he only accepted cash for the services and followed her to an ATM machine nearby.  She was afraid that he would be violent if she said no. After paying Succar, the client began to leave but Succar insisted on following her home. She told Succar no, but he followed her several blocks before she screamed “No.”   The next day, the client called Vitality Massage to report Succar’s behavior. The owners told her that he was terminated a few weeks prior and that they thought he was using studio to perform a massage on a friend.
