SOUTH GLENDALE — A medical facility that was allegedly performing massages without a permit was ordered Monday to stop soliciting those services.
Code enforcement officials had given CHS Health Care Inc. on the 1600 block of East Colorado Street a 72-hour notice Feb. 23 to obtain a conditional-use permit to perform massages after Glendale police arrested an employee on suspicion of offering sex acts to an undercover officer.
The facility’s operators submitted a permit application Monday, Code Enforcement Officer Rene Sada said.
Still, officials have ordered the facility to cease all massage services, even with the referral of a medical professional.
“As of Monday, they are not allowed to perform any massages,” he said.
Businesses that offer massages are allowed to perform those services on site only for therapeutic use, and they must be approved by a chiropractor, acupuncturist or physician.
