Spas in Leamington and Texas offer a new kind of spa
LEAMINGTON, Texas — It’s the summer of the water, a time of rejuvenation and healing when many people in Leamings hometown of Fort Worth soak in the sunshine and indulge in the comfort of a spa.
Leamington Spa, located on the banks of the Brazos River, has become a destination for spa visitors from around the country.
But it’s not the only spa in the area, and it isn’t the only one with spa treatments.
The spa offers a range of treatments including relaxation, massage and physical therapy, and has even made a few changes in its business.
“We’ve always had massage rooms, but they’re not very popular,” said Tara, a massage therapist at Leamingtons own spa.
“You need a little bit more massage and a little more stimulation, but I think we’ve found our niche.”
Spa owner Tara Dominguez said she decided to open a spa in Leamanton after a friend recommended the area.
“I went and saw the location, and I thought it was a great spot,” Domingue said.
The owner said the spa was open in July, but it’s still a little rough around the edges.
Dominguez and her husband have been a family business for years, and she has been open for nearly a decade.
The Leamingons have three children and all are now adults.
Dominguos husband has been married for more than 50 years and has two adult children.
“The kids are so much older now,” Domanos said.
“They’re like my life.
I have the time and the space.”
Domingue has been working with her husband to keep the business running.
“It’s like I’m a mother now.
I’ve been the business, and now it’s my family,” she said.
Her husband, Jason Dominguzas, said he’s excited to see what he can bring to the community.
“This is just a dream come true.
I love the kids and I love our family,” he said.
It’s a business that was on the rise in the 1960s and 1970s.
“There was a time when we had a lot of young women coming in here and they were doing things and doing it well,” Domeduez said.
But then the government shut it down.
“They closed down Leamanning, because it was too dangerous for young people to come here.
And we had to come out and find a new community,” Domenos said.”
It’s the best part of our lives,” she added.
Domenos hopes to keep doing what she does and bringing her clients back to Leaman.
“And we will be doing that,” she vowed.
Leamanston Spa has been a hotbed for the business since at least the 1960’s, and its popularity has never been in decline.
But now, the business has lost some of its steam and has been hit with an increase in new competition.
“Our competition is pretty intense now,” said Domingo.
“Now we’re trying to keep our business up and to keep it going, and to help our young people find a career in this industry,” Domeys son said.
Domeys family has been in the business for a long time.
Her grandmother, Helen Domingos, ran the spa in 1958 and has worked there since.
Domes father, Robert, was the first owner and later became the chairman.
He died in 1993, and the family owns the business.
The Domingys said their son has been one of their main drivers to keep running the business and keeping the community safe.
“He’s been a great motivator,” Domes son said of his son.
“All of his children are all professional people, and he’s done a lot for them, and that’s what keeps us going.”
Domen’s son is now on a mission to bring the business back.
“My goal is to make sure he keeps doing what he does, because I want to make it his career,” he explained.
“Just to help the community, make sure they don’t lose the jobs, and just make sure we continue to bring people back to this place.”
It doesn’t hurt that his son is passionate about helping others.
“If I could make the world a better place, I’d do that, but we’re going to have to be patient,” Doms son said with a smile.
“Sometimes it takes me a little while, but when you get that feeling you know you can’t let that get in the way of what you’re doing.”
