12 Days of PCA Day Two: Specialized Spas

Welcome to American Spa's second year of the 12 Days of PCA announcements! In 2017, we decided to announce the winners of our annual Professional's Choice Awards a little differently. Instead of giving you all 50 winners (plus the finalists) at once, we broke them up into fun groups to give you a few of the winners each day through out the month of November. This year, we'll be following suit as we unveil the winners of our 14th annual Professional's Choice Awards, now through November 30.

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:
