In brief: May be possible

Ways that getting a massage might transmit herpes include: the masseuse has a herpes sore on her hand, the equipment was just freshly contaminated by a customer with herpes sores and the equipment was not wiped with disinfectant, a customer has herpes on her body and transmits it to the masseuse during the massage, etc.
