Massage therapist banned for indecent assault

The NSW Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) said Juan Valenzuela, based in the Blue Mountains, breached the Code of Conduct for Unregistered Health Professionals, which says he must act in a “safe and ethical manner” and “not engage in a sexual or other close personal relationship with a client”.

The HCCC said Mr Valenzuela breached the code by indecently assaulting the client in February 2010.

He also breached the code by establishing a close personal relationship with the client, who was 35 years younger
