Terry James, 53 and of Halifax Road in Dewsbury, was charged with multiple offences including 13 charges of assault by penetration, five sexual assaults and further offences of possessing and distributing indecent images of children.
Police said James would abuse his victims by secretly filming and taking pictures of them whilst they were under the guise of receiving treatment at his business premises on Tong Lane, Bradford.
At Bradford Crown Court on Friday (December 1) he was sentenced to 17 years in prison, made to sign the register as a sex offender for life and comply with an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.
Detective Inspector Ian Cottrell, of Bradford District Safeguarding, Team said: “James is a vile and dangerous sexual predator who deserves to be behind bars for a very long time.
“He put his victims through a horrific ordeal, they trusted him and he abused it in the most depraved way.
“I hope the victims can get some comfort and justice from the sentence knowing that he will be in prison for 17 years.
“This was a complex investigation in which my team investigated sensitively, supporting the victims throughout.
"This was highlighted by Judge Sophie McKone who commended Detective Constable Becky Allen for her hard work throughout the investigation.
“I hope this case highlights we do take reports of all sexual assaults seriously and we will do everything we can to get justice.”
