Hayward tightens massage parlor rules

HAYWARD — The city is taking advantage of a new state law to tighten regulations on massage businesses.

The new rules are intended to allow legitimate businesses to operate while giving Hayward the ability to crack down on prostitution and other illegal activities at shady massage parlors, said city spokesman Frank Holland.

“This is about having good actors and making sure we have standards that work,” he said.

Cities throughout the East Bay are revising their regulations after Assembly Bill 1147 took effect Jan. 1. San Leandro has a moratorium on new massage businesses while its staff crafts new rules, and Oakland is considering how best to take advantage of the Massage Therapy Reform Act. The new law gives cities and counties more say over whether massage businesses can operate and where.

The City Council on Tuesday approved the revisions that will go into effect in February. The rules require all massage therapists in the city to be certified by the California Massage Therapy Council, an independent organization. Businesses could be subject to a $2,500 fine for each unauthorized therapist and for each violation committed.

Parlors with three or more workers must remain unlocked during business hours, a restriction that did not sit well with the owner of Hadley’s Massage in downtown Hayward.

“We did voice our concern about locking the door,” Haiying Mao said through an interpreter. “What if there are only two people here and both are working?” Having to hire a full-time receptionist to cover the front of the building for only short periods of time is an additional expense for owners to bear, she said.

Mao also objected to an owner being fined if someone working there takes part in an illegal activity. “If something bad happens, everything is on the owner’s head,” she said.

Three Hayward businesses were shut down in May during a multiagency police sweep of what police say were brothels masquerading as massage parlors. The law enforcement officers executed 32 search warrants in Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Solano and Sonoma counties. Four businesses were closed in Oakland, one in San Leandro and five in San Lorenzo.

Hayward now has 16 massage establishments, with 12 of those opening since 2012.

“You see how fast these things can proliferate. We’re taking a proactive approach so that we have legitimate operators in Hayward,” Holland said.

New businesses would have to apply for a use permit, which gives the city a say on where they can operate. Before, as long as a massage parlor had a business license, it could open wherever other personal services businesses such as barbers or yoga studios were allowed.

Existing parlors have six months to comply with the new rules, which also include a massage therapy permit for each business.
