Yes, This All Sounds Very Fucking Sensual

"The owner of a Salt Lake City massage parlor and an employee have been sentenced to one-year jail terms for sex-related crimes committed at the business.

Travon J. Jackson, 29, owner of The Reiki Specialist, 231 E. 400 South, had sex with a 17-year-old girl in February 2008, and he also hired two other 17-year-olds who performed sex acts for customers and split their earnings with Jackson, according to charging documents.

Jackson pleaded guilty to one count each of attempted aggravated exploitation of prostitution and unlawful sexual conduct with a 16- or 17-year-old, both third-degree felonies.

Third District Judge Deno Himonas sentenced Jackson earlier this month to a year in the Salt Lake County jail.

David Anthony Burgess, 28, who worked at the massage parlor, was charged with two counts of first-degree felony rape, alleging he sexually assaulted two women during job interviews in September.

Burgess pleaded guilty to two counts of class A misdemeanor sexual battery and was sentenced to a year in jail by Judge Randall Skanchy.

Reiki is a holistic relaxation treatment similar to massage. It often is performed meditatively, without physical contact between the practitioner and the client.

A Web site for The Reiki Specialist advertised 'Sensual Reiki,' with physical touch and bikini-clad practitioners to 'increase the relaxation and stress relief.'"
