"Valuable Help." Brian provided my family with the answers we needed.
A Windsor Heights massage therapist has been accused of sexually assaulting a customer during a massage session. Police in Iowa say 64-year-old Kevin Thoren, owner of Banyan Health and Wellness, groped a woman during a massage in November of 2018. Thoren was arrested and then released on bond in connection to the criminal charges against him.
Legal Help For Victims Of Kevin Thoren
Were you or a loved one assaulted by Kevin Thoren? Our experienced sexual assault attorneys understand your pain. Sexual assault can raise a storm of painful emotions, from shock and anger to fear, rage or disbelief. Our deepest condolences and sympathies go out to you.
You are not alone. Thankfully, Kevin Thoren is being held accountable for his alleged misconduct by the criminal justice system. He has been criminally charged for sexually assaulting a female customer back in November at Banyan Health and Wellness. But Thoren has yet to be held accountable directly to his victims. We can help.
Massage Therapist's License Suspended Over Misconduct Complaints
The allegations against Thoren are truly shocking. According to Fox 17, Thoren should have stopped providing massage therapy services a long time ago. Months before the alleged assault, Thoren surrendered his massage license because the Iowa Board of Massage Therapy initiated an investigation into allegations of misconduct against him. Despite losing his license, Thoren continued to practice, saying he performed "energy work."
Thoren claims that his energy work never requires him to go below the pubic bone, but at least one female customer says she was left terrified when the massage therapist began to grope her during a session. Needless to say, this is unacceptable.
