Two Queens women were arrested in Oceanside Tuesday afternoon after a police investigation revealed both women were practicing massage therapy without a license.
According to Nassau County detectives, an undercover investigation of an acupuncture establishment located at 433 Merrick Road revealed that Feng Shu Chang, 48, and Xiao Lin, 31, practiced massage therapy without a license on various occasions.
Police said that Lin also offered to engage in a sexual act for an undisclosed amount of money.
Both defendants are being charged with unauthorized practice. Lin is also charged with prostitution. They will both be arraigned on Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
The arrests in Oceanside come after a total of eight spa workers were arrested at two locations in West Hempstead earlier in January -- five of whom were charged with prostitution.
