Statutory Documents

Registered Health Spas

A person must obtain a health spa operator's certificate of registration from the Secretary of State before operating a health spa or offering for sale, or selling a membership in a health spa. An operator’s certificate of registration is required for each health spa location. Unless the person qualifies for an exemption, a security deposit must be posted with the Secretary of State for each location. The security deposit is held for the benefit of members of the health spa who suffer actual financial loss as a result of the closing of the health spa.

A list of health spa locations (PDF) currently registered with the Secretary of State may be found here. The list indicates whether a security deposit is posted for such locations. This list is updated every Wednesday. If you discover an unregistered health spa that is operating in your area, please contact our office, or (512) 475-0775. If you have a complaint regarding a health spa, you may contact the Consumer Protection Division of the Office of the Attorney General at (800) 621-0508.
