This Wednesday Colorado will be the 39th state to require massage workers to be registered.
Before new legislation for massage therapists passed authorities said the law limited their ability to shut down massage parlors where employees allegedly offered sex for cash.
Under the new law, a person must register to legally use the title of “masseuse” or “massage therapist” or face fines and jail time.
Therapists must be licensed and undergo a background check.
Last November Fuji Massage parlor was busted and shut down by Grand Junction police after investigators found that workers were performing sexual favors for money.
Nan O'Reilly, the woman who is allegedly at the center of a pimping and prostitution ring at Fuji Massage, is expected back in court in April.
Massage therapists hope the new law will protect consumers and bring more credibility to their field.
