Woodstock revokes massage parlor’s license

A Woodstock massage establishment withdrew its appeal, and the city moved Monday to revoke its license, over alleged violations of city ordinances.

The action followed a hearing before the Woodstock City Council on the appeal by Bao Trinh, owner of BaoBao LLC, doing business as Full Moon Massage, at 10020 Highway 92.

A Nov. 3 city license revocation letter accused the business of having unlicensed persons offering massage therapy, and the licensee or designated manager not present on the premises, among other allegations. The letter also cited an ongoing investigation by the Woodstock Police Department and findings by police and Code Enforcement after an Oct. 22 inspection.

Trinh’s attorney, Gregory K. Schwarz, denied the allegations in a Nov. 9 letter to the city. Schwarz said that as a matter of good faith, his client had agreed to keep the business closed until the matter could be resolved.
