Establishments in violation of the new regulations may be deemed a public nuisance. They also would be subject to inspection from police officers, zoning officials, public health officials and other agencies.
Hospitals, medical facilities and public health centers will be exempt from theses requirements, and so will licensed cosmetologists, registered barbers or nail salon technicians who administer massages only to the scalp, face, neck, shoulder, feet or hands, the legislation states.
Other exempt jobs include licensed chiropractors, podiatrists, nurses and sports trainers.
Beavercreek, Kettering, Springboro, Fairborn and Miamisburg are among other local cities to pass recent legislation regulating unlicensed massage parlors.
