How to get the best massage in Asheville
The Asheville Escorts Association says it is planning to ban the use of “bodysnatchers,” which the organization says is a “dangerous and invasive practice.”
The association announced Friday that it will ban the practice, which is “incompatible with the standards of good business practices” and “unsafe and potentially hazardous to the health of our clients and employees.”
“The Asheville Escort Association will continue to protect our clients’ privacy and safety by working closely with law enforcement, local governments, and the health department to develop a list of acceptable uses for bodysnatcher equipment,” said Ashley Jones, the association’s executive director.
“In this case, the use is for the purposes of massage, not sex.”
“Bodysnapping” is a term used by escorts to describe the act of placing a towel or towel rack over the shoulder of a client and putting the massage equipment in the rack, which then slides up against the client’s back.
It is an invasive and uncomfortable practice that can cause significant pain and injury to a client.
The practice was banned in Los Angeles and New York City in 2016.
The Asheville Association has been working to get its members to ban bodysnaping in Asheville.
In a video posted on the association website, the group says it plans to take the ban to the local health department.
The association’s announcement comes as lawmakers are debating legislation that would require massage therapists to obtain a state license, or the equivalent, and pass a background check before they work in the industry.
In addition, the bill, Senate Bill 639, also calls for an ethics commission to investigate complaints against massage therapists and to impose fines on anyone who violates the law.
The bill also calls on state health officials to review and enforce existing state laws against bodysnicers, who are licensed to work in a licensed spa, bar or hotel.
Some states have also banned the practice.
In the video, the Asheville Escorting Association says its “policy on bodysnicking is consistent with our local, state, and federal health codes.”
The Asheville association says it will continue working with law-enforcement, local government, and health department officials to develop its list of uses for the bodysnarcher equipment.
The association’s statement says the new rule will “protect the health and safety of our members and their clients.”
