Struckmeyer was terminated from Spavia Oct. 10 following the sexual misconduct allegations for which he was later arrested.

Two female victims, who did not know each other, contacted the Fort Collins Police Department in September and October regarding massages they received from Struckmeyer.

Both female victims reported that Struckmeyer exposed and touched their intimate parts.

“Professional massage should never involve genital contact, nor should any other medical examination for purposes other than treatment consistent with reasonable medical practices,” the FCPS press release said.

After Struckmeyer was arrested Nov. 30, he was booked into the Larimer County Jail.

Anyone who has any other information regarding the case or who may have been victimized by Struckmeyer has been urged by police to contact FCPS Detective Annie Hill at 970-221-6340.
