In Texas, health spas are regulated by the Secretary of State, Registrations Unit.
The Secretary defines health spas as “A business that offers...members instruction in or use of facilities for a physical exercise program.”
In addition to registration requirements, health spas in Texas are required to purchase at least one Texas health spa bond.
The purpose of a Texas health spa bond is to protect consumers from any acts of criminal negligence, fraud, theft, or criminal misrepresentation or malfeasance in the course of their business.
To maintain a proper understanding of this surety bond one only needs to keep in mind one thing: The Texas health spa bond protects others; it does not protect the health spa club at all.
It is also a prerequisite for licensing.
It is important for applicants to remember that each location of a Texas health spa will have its own Texas health spa bond.
To determine the amount of bond required, the following formula will be of use:
The premium required for the Texas health spa bond will be determined by:
A $20,000 bond may cost as little as $375; a $50,000 bond may cost as little as $750.
The bonds are issued for one year and renew annually.
