SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) – State inspectors say co-owners of a Sioux City massage parlor hired unlicensed employees, and some of them are suspected of giving erotic massages. The Iowa Board of Massage Therapy announced Tuesday that Shuling Liu and Jingyin Bai, owners of Hong Chinese Massage, had their licenses suspended indefinitely. They also were fined $1,000 each.

Liu and Bai have been charged with five counts, including committing unethical conduct. The board says it received several complaints of unlicensed therapists giving erotic massages. An employee also was arrested for prostitution following an undercover operation by law enforcement.

Records say the parlor advertised its business on several adult and exotic websites.
