AUSTIN (KXAN) — A therapist at an Austin area spa was charged with sexual assault after a woman told police he touched her inappropriately during a massage.

According to a Bee Cave Police Department arrest warrant affidavit, 34-year-old Kevin Frazier Wilson touched the victim without her consent during a two-hour massage at milk + honey in Bee Cave on Oct. 24.

The spa confirmed to police Kevin Wilson worked as a therapist and he was the only man who worked with the victim that day, the affidavit reads.

KXAN is working to find attorney information for Wilson. This story will be updated with a response.

Alissa Bayer, the founder of milk + honey, told KXAN she was “saddened and shocked to learn of the allegations against [Kevin] Wilson.”

Wilson had only been with the spa for two months at the time of the alleged assault. He was hired in late August. Wilson had more than 13 years of experience, working at “reputable spas,” according to the founder’s statement.

Bayer added — “As a female-founded company, I can assure you that milk + honey has zero tolerance for sexual misconduct or behavior from any employee or client. We operate with the highest level of integrity and will do everything we can to ensure that any employee who does not uphold the ethical standards assigned with being a professional therapist is held fully accountable for their actions. As soon as we were made aware of these accusations, [Wilson] was immediately removed from our schedule and was subsequently terminated. We attempted to make contact with the victim and asked for her permission to submit a formal complaint to TDLR on her behalf with the intent of rendering him unable to perform massage services in the future. In addition, we have offered our partnership and support with law enforcement and have provided them with necessary documentation in support of their investigation.”

Wilson had an active massage therapy license and was in good standing by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, milk + honey said in the statement

The spa added it ran a background check and Wilson’s screen was “completely clear and met the requirements for employment.”  

During an interview with police, Wilson didn’t deny touching the victim in inappropriate areas, the affidavit reads. The detective asked Wilson if “everything [he] did was within the scope of [his] practice as a Massage Therapist,” to which he replied “No, it deviated from massage,” according to the affidavit.

Wilson was charged with second-degree felony sexual assault. The Bee Cave Police Department said Wilson has not been arrested.

State requirements for massage therapists

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation took over oversight of the massage therapy program in 2017, according to a spokesperson.

To receive a massage therapist license, you need to complete 500 hours of massage therapy coursework and get fingerprinted for a national criminal history record review. Licenses must be renewed every two years.

Bayer said when she hired Wilson, his license was active until 2024.

The charts below show the number of alleged violations and violations resulting in disciplinary actions regarding licensed therapists across the state in 2021.

And guilty or no context plea – or a conviction – related to violent crime, sexual offenses and various other charges are grounds for revocation of a massage therapist license.

SHELTON, Conn. (WTNH) – A Shelton massage therapist has been charged with sexual assault, according to police.

Shelton police said on Tuesday, 46-year-old Lisa Daubenhauser of Seymour was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and practicing massage therapy without a license.

Police said the arrest stems from a complaint from a woman who said she received a massage at M Spa in Shelton. The woman told police that Daubenhauser touched her inappropriately and made lewd comments toward her during the massage.

Shelton police learned that Daubenhauser did not have a license to practice massage therapy.

Daubenhauser was released on a $5,000 bond and is due in court on Wednesday.

Shelton police said this is an ongoing investigation and ask anyone who may have had a similar experience to contact police at 203-924-1544.

A York County massage therapist is charged with sexually assaulting a client, weeks after agreeing to surrender his license because of the allegation.

A woman went to Penn Township police on April 4, saying she was assaulted during a massage at Nature’s Bliss Therapy Studio in the 1300 block of Baltimore Street, according to a statement from officials.

An online search of licensing records shows that an investigation and suspension of Korycki’s license went into effect in March before he voluntarily surrendered his license shortly before the woman went to the police.

According to the filing to surrender his license, Korycki said the woman accused him of assaulting her on Nov. 5, 2021, when they were alone in the building.

The following are stipulations or “facts” agreed upon by Korycki and the woman in the filing:

The woman described Korycki as seeming “out of it” and that he had previously talked about using a vape to ingest marijuana before massages.

During the massage, Korycki groped the woman, uncovering her and re-covering her with a sheet, and said she was “so [expletive] hot.”

The woman said she “froze” when Korycki was first touching her, but got up and said she had to leave when he went to the other side of the table.

After she got up, Korycki acknowledged he was in the wrong and told her “I hope I didn’t mess this up for us” and “are we cool?”

The next day, the woman messaged Korycki to confront him about the assault. Korycki said he “misread” her and didn’t know what he was thinking, according to the filing.

The woman reported the assault to the owner of the studio and a complaint was filed with the Pennsylvania State Board of Massage Therapy, police said.

According to the filing, the woman and Korycki agreed to the resolution of him permanently and voluntarily surrendering his license to practice as a massage therapist.

The owner of the studio is cooperating with the ongoing investigation. According to the filing, Korycki received his massage therapy license in June of 2016, working at Persona Day Spa before Nature’s Bliss.

If anyone was or knows of additional victims, they should call Penn Township police Det. Eric Zumbrum at [email protected] or call 717-637-8751.
