Massage therapist Christopher White has been accused of sexually assaulting a client during a massage.

Massage Therapist Christopher White Arrested on Sexual Battery Charge

St. Mary’s massage therapist Christopher White was arrested on Wednesday, January 15 for allegedly sexually assaulting a client at his business – GTO Health and Wellness Spa on Charlie Smith Sr. Highway.

Police started investigating White on January 13 after a woman contacted the Sheriff’s Office to report that White had inappropriately touched her during a massage. He was booked into the Camden County Jail on a sexual battery charge on Wednesday.

Deputies said White works for GTO Health and Wellness Spa, which is located inside of a realty building on Charlie Smith Sr. Highway. According to a story by News4Jax, a neighboring business owner from the same building said that White is the owner and only employee of the spa and he moved into the building in fall 2019.

Anyone with information related to this case or who believes they have been victimized by White has been asked to call the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Section at 912-510-5172.

Legal Recourse For Massage Therapist Sexual Assault Victims

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com has represented dozens of massage therapist sexual assault victims in lawsuits against massage therapy businesses like Massage Envy. Brian has offered to share his opinion on the legal rights of these victims:

Massage therapists are trusted by their clients to conduct themselves professionally and to treat these clients with respect. But sadly, not all massage therapists are trustworthy people. This industry has a serious problem with massage therapists sexually assaulting their clients.

Massage therapy businesses have a legal duty to protect their customers from sexual assault. In some sexual assault cases, the assault could have been prevented if not for negligence by the business. Many victims of these preventable assaults have taken legal action by filing lawsuits against massage therapy businesses.
