Nassau police on Monday afternoon arrested two women on charges of giving illegal massages to undercover detectives at a North Massapequa salon, police said. Neither woman had a massage license as required by state law.
While massaging a detective who pretended to be a customer, one of the woman offered to have sex for money and was also charged with prostitution.
The women, ages 51 and 46, both of Flushing, gave the massages to the plainclothes detectives at Qigong Tuina/Acupressure, Acupuncture Bodywork, at 898A North Broadway. In addition to the single prostitution charge, both women were charged with unauthorized practice of a profession and possession of a forged instrument. No details about the forgery charges were provided in a Tuesday police report.
They were set for arraignment Tuesday in First District Court, Hempstead.
