Brendon Dorn looses fight for continued name suppression

Updated: 18 May 2012 @ 4:57pm

It has been reported in the Manawatu Standard that Brendon Dorn has lost his fight to keep his name suppressed over charges of inappropriately touching clients, while owning Body in Balance and working as a (unqualified) masseur in Palmerston North. Body in Balance was renamed to Bella Vita Day Spa but remains on the Body in Balance url. Mr Dorn is not listed as an owner of either business according to the companies office.

  1. What I find most worrying is that this chap was able to continue giving massages during this period. I know this, as I was one of them! How he ever managed to get name suppresion I will never understand. Looks like hhe Whale Oil guy was right!

  2. Thanks for compiling this page. What a creep this guy is. I wonder how many women and men are out there he did this to and got away with it. It sounds like he was in the profession to get a cheap thrill. What a loser. I am glad the name supression has been lifted so all people who know him and trusted him now will think differently.

  3. And he was back in Palmerston North District Court yesterday for the trial of another indecent assault on a different female clien

  4. how much community service? i’ve met this guy when i worked with his crazy girlfriend who would rant about his innocence. his comments were to ask how old i was and then say “ooooh so young!” SUCH a creep,

  6. Why is this Guy that has been convicted of Indecency crimes still allowed to live above the premises and be allowed to freely walk around the salon while there are clients in there getting treatments done? Is this not only wrong but surely it is tempting fate!
