In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal?to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan?certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
The Spa Gregorie team won Spa Finder?s Reader?s Choice award for Best Day Spa of 2011 for rejuvenating skin with Spa Gregorie's botanically enriched product line. Steps away from the spa's tranquil hair salon, Arcona formulas play a central role in the spa's 18 facial treatments while massage clients benefit from fluffy robes and a eucalyptus steam room. But the staff's dedication to well-being doesn't stop with the clients?contributions to the Make a Wish Foundation and multiple cancer research organizations echo this allegiance to communal prosperity, and any nonprofit group or charitable organization may use the Del Mar spa's conference room for free.
In 2011, the International SPA Association honored Spa Gregorie's CEO Angela Cortright with the Dedicated Contributor of the Year award. The press release cites her commitment to well-being and public service beyond her three eucalyptus-scented spas and reveals her favorite quote to be Muhammad Ali's maxim, ?Service to others is the rent we pay for our room here on Earth.? This attitude has earned the company an avalanche of awards, which document the good works of its expert aestheticians, hair designers, and massage therapists.
