A Quincy masseur has been charged with rape after a client said the man allegedly touched her in appropriately.

Police said a woman came to the Quincy Police Station on Jan. 8, reporting that a masseur at the Republic of Wellness on Coddington Street had inappropriately touched her in November.

Police said they brought the suspect in on Monday for an interview and arrested him on the allegations.

Krishna Lamichhane, 39, from Quincy was charged with rape and two counts of indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older.

Lamichhane was arraigned at Quincy District Court on Tuesday and held on $7500 cash bail, police said.

The Republic of Wellness, located at 67 Coddington St., is across the street from Quincy High School and down the street from the South Shore YMCA

According to the business’s website, the location offers massage, acupuncture, skin care and waxing services.

Lamichhane is not listed as a current masseur on the website, although he is a licensed masseur. According to the Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation website, Lamichhan is licensed by the state through September 2014.

The website, which displays disciplinary actions dating to 1993, has no record of any action against Lamichhan.

The massage parlor is licensed to Juliana Pires, according to the Consumer Affairs website. She did not return calls for comment Friday morning.

The business is currently licensed through April 20, 2014, the Consumer Affairs website says.
