12 Days of PCA Day Two: Specialized Spas

Day two of winners for American Spa's Professional Choice Awards // Graphic by Kara Magliaro

Welcome to day two of our 12 Days of PCA celebration. We've decided to announce the winners of our annual Professional's Choice Awards a little differently this year. Instead of giving you all 49 winners (plus the finalists) at once, we've broken them up into fun groups to give you a few of the winners each day, now until Thanksgiving day. On our second day, we've got the Specialized Spas group, which includes the winners of your favorite romantic spa, favorite green spa, favorite cruise spa, favorite day spa, and favorite medical spa. Find out who were our winners and finalists below:
