"Fifty-five minutes for you, 5 minutes for me -- just between friends."
A Vancouver, Washington massage therapist is accused of improperly touching a woman's breasts during a treatment. The assault happened in November at the Back to Health Chiropractic and Massage Therapy in east Vancouver.
A patient says that Gerald Clausen began massaging her breasts and continued for about 5 minutes. She told investigators that Clausen told her, "Fifty-five minutes for you, 5 minutes for me -- just between friends." It was at that point, she realized that the breast massage was sexual and not "therapeutic".
The state accuses Clausen of unprofessional conduct and sexual misconduct. The Washington State Department of Health has suspended his license.
