Spa Geek Knowledge

Those of you who read my articles once in a while will have noticed my section called “Spa Geek Knowledge”.

What is Spa Geek Knowledge?

In order to provide you with some real and useful knowledge besides simple product and consumer knowledge, I have decided to give you further well researched content in each of my articles. 

You know, TalkWellness is not a mere beauty blog, where I post nice pictures about the lovely spas that I visit. 

Instead I want to share and distribute expert knowledge and news on global spa & wellness topics, for both spa enthusiasts and professionals alike.

Today I round up all Spa Geek Knowledge sections that I have published so far. Consider it some kind of spa glossary beyond the usual ‘what is a Thai massage’ knowledge. These 30-second-training bits can help you make better choices every day and above may serve as useful conversation pieces at your next party.
