No, the owner of the place would be insane to turn you in. If he is running an establishment where prostitution is occurring, he would face far more serious penalties than you would. You would merely be charged with soliciting a prostitute, which is a misdemeanor. He would be charged with running an unlawful business and perhaps, depending on whether his masseuses are citizens and at least 18 with international illegal trafficking in women.

Typically, the only way you'd get caught for something like this is if the massage establishment were raided and you were discovered in the middle of an unlawful act. Otherwise, since massage parlors can provide both legal and illegal services, the fact that you were on the premises wouldn't prove anything.
