Florida Disciplines Massage Therapists

Florida’s Department of Health has issued license restriction orders for several massage therapists recently. Here are some of the most recent:

Patrick Joseph Huff

Patrick Huff was a licensed massage therapist who owned the business for which he worked. Recently the Department of Health ordered an Emergency Restriction be placed upon Huff’s license after a female client filed a police report claiming that Huff digitally penetrated her during what was supposed to be a deep tissue massage for pain relief.

After she terminated the appointment and left the facility without paying for the appointment Huff allegedly texted her an apology and offered to refund her previous appointment’s fee.

Huff was arrested and charged with sexual battery.

Also losing its license to an Emergency Restriction Order is Hands-On Therapeutic Massage, which Huff owned.

David Andrew Crawford

David Crawford’s license has been suspended following an accusation that he inappropriately touched a male client. As far as I can tell Crawford has not been criminally charged and neither he nor the spa he worked for at the time appears to have ever commented publicly on the allegation.

Serenity Center a/k/a Infinite Health & Wellness

Serenity Center in Winter Springs has been placed under an Emergency Restriction on License due to its owner, Mark Raymond Curley, being accused of sexually violating a client.

According to the official documentation ordering the suspension, the client did contact police but I can find no record of a formal investigation.

Curley’s massage therapist license was restricted as a result of that allegation as well.
