Enterprises operating as health spas or offering health spa services are required by the State of Texas to hold Health Spa surety bonds. These bonds are required as part of the official registration process. The required bond amount is based on the total amount paid for prepaid memberships at the health spa location. These bonds are subject to underwriting consideration and involve a personal credit report. They are designed to health spa members who encounter financial loss as a result of the closing of the health spa.
