Supposed therapeutic massages are rubbing Australian health officials the wrong way.

Authorities are investigating reports that Sydney brothels list services by hookers as health treatments and bill insurance companies.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper reports brothels charged customers about 40 dollars, under services invoiced as massage or acupuncture.

Officials became suspicious when all the patients turned out to be men, between the ages of 36 and 72.
