Clark County Looks to Tighten Regulations on Massage Parlors

Clark County is examining new regulations to clamp down on massage parlors that are actually brothels in disguise.

Under proposed rules, a standalone massage clinic would be limited to the hours between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.

New shops would have to be at least 200 feet from a residential area and 1,000 feet from another massage business.

Massage therapists who work in hotels, fitness centers or established spas would be exempt, as would those affiliated with a medical practitioner.

The new code would mirror the one the city of Las Vegas enacted
several years ago.

County commissioners will discuss the proposal on Feb. 20 and decide whether to impose the new rules.
