Unlicensed Massage Therapist Gary Nash Charged with Sexually Assaulting Several Clients

An unlicensed massage therapist who ran his own business in Fountain Hills has been charged with sexually assaulting several clients. 62-year-old Gary Wayne Nash faces 32 counts of sexual assault, fraud, and practicing medicine without a license.

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, Nash has been seeing patients at his business, Fountains of Youth Renewal Center, for seven years. He offered colonics, massage therapy, and holistic treatments. Court records say that Nash never had credentials or licensing to practice these services.

Four women contacted detectives to report that Nash had touched their breasts and genitals under the guise of medical treatment during appointments between February 2019 and February 2020. A fifth victim reported seeing Nash for several treatments in 2013.

One victim told detectives that Nash kissed her on the forehead and said, “This is a sacred relationship, what we do here is not inappropriate.”

According to court records, one victim paid Nash approximately $60,000 for treatments and essential oils.

Legal Recourse For People Who Have Been Sexually Assaulted by Massage Therapists

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin has represented several clients who have been sexually assaulted by massage therapists. We’ve asked Kevin to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of these victims:

The massage therapy industry has serious and widespread issues with employees sexually assaulting clients. Many of these victims have begun fighting back by filing civil lawsuits against spas and massage studios, alleging that in some cases, these businesses have failed to protect their customers from sexual predators.

Spas and massage studios can be held liable for sexual assaults of customers if negligence by the business allowed the assault to occur. For example, a massage studio might be considered negligent if the perpetrator was an unlicensed massage therapist.
