A woman who claims she was touched inappropriately by a male masseuse has spoken out about her experience.
Musician Hannah Stow has vowed to only see female massage therapists after a man, who she described as "credible and skilled", allegedly touched her foot using his "male body part" while he was giving her a back rub at her home in Perth, Australia.
"I thought I'd treat myself, and hire someone to come to me. I went on Gumtree and found this man who had a degree and 15 years of experience," she told news.com.au.

"At the time, I was quite young and I did not see anything wrong with this. He seemed credible and skilled."
Hannah said she arranged for the man to come to her house and for the first 20 minutes of the massage everything went as expected.
However it was when the masseuse started massaging her calves with both hands that she "felt another body part" touch her foot.
She said she thought nothing of it at first, but when she felt the strange sensation for a second time she turned around and reportedly caught the man fiddling with his pants, seemingly putting "something back in" them.

"I froze, finished the massage, paid him and he left. I’ve always been someone that will shrug things off easily."
Hannah, 28, said she was 21 when the alleged incident occurred and it has taken her a number of years to be able to process what happened.
She now feels comfortable sharing what happened to her on social media, in a bid to warn others.
She even told the story in a pair of viral videos on TikTok, which racked up a total of more than 665,000 views between them.
And while Hannah can now joke about the harrowing tale, the experience has left its mark – she says she now avoids booking massages at her own home, instead choosing to travel to parlours, and will only be massaged by other women.
"It was so creepy, and I definitely don’t recommend booking home massages," she said.
