There are confirmed reports of a massage parlor in Granite Bay giving customers more than massages.

After several complaints were reported to law enforcement officers, Placer County Sheriff detectives conducted an undercover operation at the Granite Bay Spa on Sept. 18, according to Placer County Sheriff spokesman Lt. Andrew Scott.


The massage parlor is at 8715 Auburn Folsom in Granite Bay.


Detectives began monitoring and closely watching the massage parlor after several complaints of inappropriate behavior, according to law enforcement officials.

A large number of male customers were seen visiting the spa during lunchtime and night hours, according to law enforcement officials.

On Sept. 18, an undercover detective visited the spa and was propositioned by masseuse Xiaohua Li, 38, of Sacramento, to receive a sexual act in exchange for money, according to Scott. Li was arrested and released on a promise to appear in court for the misdemeanor charge, according to Scott.

Gold Country Media asked Scott if massage parlors work in conjunction with each other to offer unsolicited sexual services.

“Locations often work together if owned by the same management,” Scott said. “Sometimes, it may be an individual doing this on their own.”


The Granite Bay Spa is now closed. A date for Li to appear in court is unknown, as of press time.
