Buzzfeed News reported this week that the massage franchise, which has more than 1.6 million members and 1,170 locations nationwide, is facing allegations that 180 women were sexually assaulted at some of its spas.

Numerous accusers have now sued the chain, and subsequent court records reportedly show that multiple women had complained to Massage Envy about Deiter's actions prior to Ingram's report.

Woodley said she later discovered the innocence claim wasn't true and that her masseuse had been transferred from a different location after assaulting a woman there. "But I think that for some women it's even worse to go and report what happened to you and not have it taken seriously".

Massage Envy released the following statement: "Each of these incidents are heartbreaking for us and for the franchisees that operate Massage Envy locations".

This past month has seen an endless stream of sexual assault allegations against men in power, ranging from Hollywood figures to Capitol Hill.

The first allegation detailed in the civil lawsuits was reported in October 2015.

Christopher Rosario, who worked at the Massage Envy in Bend, is now embroiled in three civil lawsuits and one criminal case related to sex abuse allegations at the massage spa. "I was feeling shame, which I understand from lots of therapy is very common", she said.

Over 100 reported that massage therapists groped their genitals, groped their breasts, or committed other explicit violations, such as the California woman who said she opened her eyes during a prenatal massage to find her massage therapist sucking on her nipple. The article references 180 reported incidents.

Ryan Haynes was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the Springfield Massage Envy in 2012.

Massage Envy said the cases span more than 15 years. But overall, Melanie Hansen, general counsel of Massage Envy Franchising, said the company has worked hard to create the industry's "most stringent, rigorous policies" for hiring, screening, and training therapists. The franchisee must also conduct a prompt, fair, and thorough investigation of the allegation, with the assistance of outside experts if needed.

Ingram told CBS News that she felt the response sounded nearly "scripted" in its impersonal nature.

Eventually, Ingram did call the police.

Check out customer reviews online, like on Google or Yelp. If something feels off, report it to law enforcement, state regulatory boards, and the spa immediately.
