Are Happy Endings 'Part of the Business'?

Did you catch this article and video of a registered massage therapist in Canada reporting a creeper client to the police last month? It's a bit discouraging. 

A West Island certified massage therapist is urging Montreal police to examine how they handle complaints of unwanted sexual behaviour after an officer seemed to try to dissuade her from filing a report and repeatedly told her to not be "emotional."

Luckily, she recorded the conversation. She said police need better training on how to deal with women who turn to them for help.

Early on in my massage career, I did have the unfortunate need to contact the police about a client. Luckily for me, they took my complaint very seriously and were nothing but completely respectful and helpful.

Claudia Cavaliere had to not only deal with the creeper client, but then also with the detachment and disregard of the police when she tried to file a complaint. Thankfully, her recording is getting some attention that will hopefully lead to some changes and/or additional training for the police officers.

Photo ID is now required at the spa where Claudia works. This with a few other tips on how to screen out creeper clients may be helpful.

Cindy Iwlew is a licensed massage therapist who has had a private practice since 1999 and cofounder of Bodywork Buddy massage software.
