  1. I am sure they cover that in the exam you must take and pass to get a massage license in New York State. Looks like a serious exam, you might want to study up. See:

  2. It is illegal to give body rubs in the State of New York without a license.


  3. Beside the statements the other attorneys made, in answer to your question, licensed or not the customer should not be touching you!
