Montana woman gets probation for letting infant freeze to death

State health officials suspended a Spokane County massage therapist's license pending further action.

The Department of Health suspended Phillip Wayne Harris' license on Tuesday after he allegedly touched two female clients inappropriately.

Court documents say the two women contacted police and reported similar experiences.

In each case, the women say Harris, working at Binn's Family Chiropractic, told them to get completely naked and got on top of them.

The documents say that during the massage, the masseuse sprayed some kind of mist from a spray bottle on the women before touching their breasts and pubic region.

The first woman said it made her feel like she was having an out of body experience.

The second said it made her arms feel like they weighed a hundred pounds and she was unable to speak.

Detectives went to the chiropractic office and spoke with Dr. Binns who said he talked to his therapist who admitted he had touched the women saying they "needed to get in tune with their body.”

Dr. Binns told detectives he fired Harris after learning that and filed the complaint against him with the Health Department.

Harris has 20 days to request a hearing to address the charges. He can’t practice massage in Washington until the charges are resolved. 

Liberty Lake Police are still investigating. No arrests have been made in the case.
