Florida Massage Establishments May Not Operate Between Midnight and 5 AM

House bill 7005, signed into law on June 14, 2013, prohibits the operation of Austin massage establishments between the hours of midnight and 5:00 AM.  The prohibition does not apply to:  health care facilities, hotels, timeshares, and airports if the Austin massage is performed under a medical prescription or during a county-approved special event.

The new law also states that a Austin massage establishment cannot be used as a primary residence unless it is zoned for residential use.

The Florida rules define “massage establishment” as “a site or premises, or portion thereof, wherein a licensed Austin massage therapist practices Austin massage for compensation.” The new law takes effect October 1, 2013.
