Caught Another One

"A reflexologist was jailed for eight years today for sexually assaulting four women during treatment sessions.

Stuart Hill, 57, who was supposed to be massaging their feet, touched them intimately after telling them he was using the latest Chinese massage technique to make them better.

The 'hormone therapy', which he said was banned in the UK, involved placing a high-street vibrating massager on an intimate part of the patient's body as she lay on his treatment bed.

Hill claimed this would make her aroused and 'orgasmic' and so would make her feel better.

The reflexologist also said he could tell whether a patient had cancer by inspecting her feet or lymph nodes.

Hill, who was previously jailed in 2002 for sexually assaulting two patients, denied the later offences, claiming during his trial at Durham Crown Court that he had 'healing hands' and had not sexually assaulted the women.

However, the jury convicted him unanimously today of six charges of sexual assault, two of assault by penetration and one of indecent assault between 2002 and 2007."

One commenter added:

"Was this woman plain stupid or what ? you couldn't make it up. If it were not so tragic it would be very funny."

Indeed.
