Neighbors called Crime Stoppers to complain about the activity at Feeling Facial Spa in Ronkonkoma.
Police investigated and on Tuesday evening officers from the Fourth Precinct Crime Section, assisted by uniformed patrol officers, raided the spa at 470 Hawkins Ave. and arrested three Queens residents "on charges related to running an unlicensed massage parlor and promoting prostitution," police said.
The raid occurred at 7:20 p.m. Tuesday, Suffolk police said. Police said they seized $800 in cash, massage tables and other "prostitution-related items."
Arrested were: Jiang He, 31, of 132-61 Pope St., Flushing; Jiang Mei, 36, of 57-23 233rd St., Bayside; and Ming Yuan Song, 50, of 67-48 Springfield Blvd., Bayside.
He was charged with prostitution and unauthorized practice, a felony under New York State Education Law, police said. Mei was charged with second-degree criminal nuisance, as was Song.
All three are scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in First District Court in Central Islip.
