Chehalis Message Therapist, Michael Frietze Sexual Assault Case

Michael Frietze, a healthcare provider in the Chehalis community at the clinic “Medical Massage & Acupuncture”, is facing accusations from numerous victims for abusing his position of trust and exploiting his patients during their treatment.

Victim statements include accounts of the massage therapist reaching beneath the sheet to make sexual advances they did not consent to. Although the investigation is still active, these accounts have already resulted in formal criminal charges. 

The vulnerable survivors of Michael Frietze’s abuse should have never had to consider this egregious outcome when they sought care and every single one of them deserves justice.
