The woman says a masseur molested her while she was getting a massage at the studio on Big Beaver Road. The owner of The Chiropractic Studio tells Local 4 the majority of the business done there is chiropractics. However, she said she did allow a freelance masseuse to take appointments at the studio. That is a decision she regrets since the customer's assault claim.

The woman did not want to show her face on Local 4 or have her full name mentioned in this story, but she still wants her story to be heard.
She says it was 30-year-old Frank Royster, who has been charged with indecent conduct after her claims, who molested her while he was supposed to be giving her a massage.
"He put his hands over my breasts," she said. "He did repeat himself several times, 'I'm just massaging. I'm just massaging.' Kind of to talk me down, I guess."
"I wasn't sure. I don't get massages very often. Later that night, when I called my girlfriend, who gets massages, she said, 'Oh, absolutely not,'" she said.
That's when she went to police to file a report. They investigated Royster, interviewed him and then arrested him.
"I would hate for this to happen to anybody else," the woman said.
The studio told Local 4 they fired Royster immediately after the allegations were reported. However, the Local 4 Defenders found Royster is still working as a masseur at the Renaissance Chiropractic Studio in Royal Oak.
Dr. Steve Upchrcuh runs Renaissance. He said Royster still has a list of female clients at his clinic who he works on.
Royster is free on bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 20.
