Some southeast Michigan parents are breathing easier after a controversial massage therapy and chiropractic center closed amid reports that college-aged women Dr. Craig Stasio treated cut ties with their families and began worshipping with the chiropractor who claimed to have a special relationship with God.

On its Facebook page, Agape Massage Therapy and Chiropractic says it’s a “Christian faith-based company offering both massage therapy and chiropractic services” and adds the greeting, “Glory be to our Lord Jesus Christ!” The clinic is loated at 40410 Hayes Road, Clinton Township.

WJBK FOX 2 Detroit aired a story last week by investigative reporter Rob Wolchek who interviewed several Clinton Township parents who said their daughters gave up college, career dreams and their families, and live together in communal houses when they’re not providing “cheap massages” at the clinic.

Wolchek said his sources said Stasio was referred to by the massage therapists as “the prophet” and that he preached of an upcoming doomsday.

Clinton Township officials who saw Wolchek’s report told him they learned the facility had never been licensed to provide massages. Agape abruptly closed, and a sign taped to the window reads: "Due to political pressure, we have been forced to close temporarily."
