Massage therapist escorted with a suspension

A massage therapist will sue the Mississippi State Board of Massage Therapy after it suspended her license on May 4.   The Board caught Jiana Hong advertising her therapy services on sexually explicit and escort service websites.  Attorney Ross Barnett, Jr. took a break from practicing his impersonations of Johnny Carson monologues and filed a notice of appeal in Hinds County Circuit Court on behalf of Ms. Hong last Friday.

 Ms. Hong operated two massage therapy facilities in Ridgeland and another in Flowood. The Board investigated her um, business practices in 2016 and held a hearing last March.  The order states:

6. On or about October 24, 2016, the Board received a complaint alleging that Hong Jiang ("Kathy"), the owner of Lake Harbour Massage, was offering sexual services to customers. On or about December 5, 2016, the Board received a similar complaint. Tiris complaint referred to advertising for Lake Harbour Massage on two (2) websites -- and Based upon the complaints, the Board initiated an investigation regarding the website advertisements.
She claimed she stopped working at Oriental Massage (Flowood) on January 1, 2016.  However, Ms. Hong was not exactly telling the truth:

8.  On October  31,  2016,  and  again  on  December  7, 2016,  the Executive Director examined the websites. She found advertising for Lake Harbour Massage on which contains the Respondent's name and massage license number and her establishment's location, address and telephone number and offers "Swedish Massage."

Ms. Hong was also busted for advertising her services on "escort" websites:

9. The website advertising features reviews for Lake Harbour Massage's name and location and for the Taiji Massage location and address. The website contains reviews and material for June 9, 2015, March 17, 2016, and October 30, 2016. The website also describes the activities offered at the establishments or sites. The website includes sexual innuendos and sexually explicit photographs, including nude, semi-nude and/or scantily clad women in sexually provocative poses. The website with these images and photographs is used to advertise services offered by an establishment with the name and telephone number and/or at the location and/or address of the massage establishment owned by the Respondent or where she worked.
What exactly is See for yourself as the website speaks for itself.

Ms. Hong tried to deny everything:

12. Prior to the receipt of the complaints regarding the Respondent's advertisements, a Board Inspector conducted an unannounced inspection of Lake Harbour Massage on or about August 8, 2016.  At the time of the inspection, there were no appointment book, client evaluations and Soap Notes at the establishment.

13. Respondent maintains that she did not place any advertisement or authorize the content on the above described websites nor did she have any authority over or ability to control the content of said websites. She states that she only does yellow page advertisements. The Respondent did not understand about client evaluations. She states that she does keep an appointment book but did not have it available at the hearing.
The "massage therapist" argued she was not responsible for the content of those websites.  However, the Board said that advertising on sexually explicit websites was grounds for taking disciplinary action against her.  One regulation states:

If the Board has determined that the address of a massage establishment has been . attached to or identified with any pornographic or other establishment that may be construed as unprofessional and/or unethical in the practice of  professional massage therapy, then the Board shall deny all applications for massage therapy wall certificates to practice at that address, regardless of the current name of the massage establishment or of its current owner. The Board shall maintain a list of such addresses. The period of such denials shall be five (5) years from the date of the most recent evidence of pornographic, or unprofessional or unethical advertising or identification.
The Board  suspended Ms. Hong's license for two years.  However, the Board delayed the suspension for 90 days.  The suspension would be suspended if Ms. Hong removed all advertising from sexually-oriented  or erotic websites,   Ms. Hong would have to "practice at another location" that is approved by the Board and will not be able to work at any of her three facilities.  The Board also fined her $600 and charged her $460 for investigation costs.

The case is assigned to Hinds County Circuit Judge William Gowan.

Why can't I ever find these places or get the offers.

I don't know what happened in this case, but I do know that when you pay a company to advertise your product/service online, you often lack control over what sites it chooses.

I could see an ad vendor looking at this lady's ad buy & going "massage, okay, let's put this wherever massage services are being advertised." It's not like they know about Mississippi licensing regs.

ms hong is merely supplying a service for the pathetic, desperate,drunken, fatass, deadbeat,goofball men of mississippi who spend most of their life talking about their attendance at ole miss or ms state and holding themselves out as happily married family men when they get down to pine lake baptist church. oh , never forget they are also "family-values" republicans.

Well, this really stinks....Us older, balding, gentlemen with pot bellies need a place where we can get little poontang too sometimes. All you pretty boy types just would not understand that I guess.

When the story about the Backpage bust was reported, I submitted a comment about this place that KF rejected.

Looks like I was right.

I have been there and nothing extra was offered. My only complaint is that they constantly try to get a man to massage me. They must ask 4 or 5 times per visit if I want a "Bro Job". The guy must be good, because there's an additional charge for that service.

2:02 I can't stop laughing. Tears streaming down my face.

21-year-old spends $50 on date with coed to get her to jerk him off in dorm room = good clean American fun; way to go, bro.

52-year-old pays Korean woman $50 extra to jerk him off in massage parlor = sinful depravity; government must shut down.

Ah, fond memories, 2:02. Some 30 years ago my wife tutored a young Tiwanese man who had moved here to work in the family business. He was quite the gentleman (former naval officer) with very good English, but didn't understand slang, which was a problem since he was managing the floor of a manufacturing operation. Each week he'd come to her with questions like "What means [fill in the blank]?" and she'd work through an often awkward explanation, trying not not embarrass either of them. That particular term you reference, though he could pronounce the L, was one of the more difficult translations.

To the dunderhead at 3:40:

The 21-year-old buys dinner for himself as well as his date and there's no guarantee of anything, as millions of 21-year-old guys who have spent $50 on a date and come up empty know all too well. If the coed chooses to engage in said activity, it's consensual. If she demands payment for that activity, she's no less a prostitute than the Korean masseuse.

Not sure why I'm attempting to explain this to an amoral sleazebag who has no problem with prostitution carrying on next door to a place where children go to get frozen yogurt.

Thank you 2:02! I needed that laugh today!!

I am curious how they spent $460 on the "investigation". Did they buy premiums memberships to the web sites?

Anonymous said...

4:14 PM I thought 3:40 made a valid point. Many casual encounters, dates, relationships, and even marriages are not based on "love" but are an arrangement of mutual expectations that involves money.

Whoflung Dung confuses me. What's the 'L'?

We need pics of this babe, how am I supposed to know if I would hit it or not?

The owner of Lake Harbour Massage once worked at the place on Lakeland. Lady leaves to start her own business. Former boss is pissed. Files complaint with Message Therapy Board. ECCIE apparently allows anonymous reviews (like this website does). Anyone can leave a review and the owner of the establishment can't do a thing about it. Question: why does the board go after a legitimate storefront? There are at least two well documented places offering "massages" on backpage. I'll bet there are no LMTs at those places.

This 'Message Therapy Board' addressed by 8:52; just what sort of messages are posted there and to what end?

While posting on a blog site can indeed be therapeutic, it's news to me that the same benefit can be had with those who use message boards.

Whoflung Dung said...

Anon. 6:44, the gentleman in question could prounounce the L in "blow" rather than pronouncing in stereotypical Chinese accent "bro".

Long story short about a guy I met once.
He read on Eccie where Lake Harbor was good for a BJ with massage. Said friend went hoping for the same. At the appropriate time said lady cried and told him those naughty reviews were sent in on behalf of her former employer specifically to drive her out of business. She said she sunk all her money in building out the place and was not going to risk it. I suspect this is true and wish she would quietly be left in peace. I heard she was actually a kind lady.

Unhappy ending said...

@8:12am So is this a guy you met once, or a friend?

If it's a guy you met once, he's awfully forthcoming with his illicit and illegal behavior to a fellow he just met and barely knows.

If it's a friend, maybe you need to get some new buddies, unless you and your pals enjoy regaling each other with tales of whoring (which speaks volumes about your levels of morality and maturity).

However, I have a feeling this is one of those things like when a teenage girl tells her guidance counselor, "I have this friend, and she thinks she might be pregnant..."

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
