The Total Glow Podcast

Whole-body health is beauty’s best-kept secret. The Total Glow Podcast unveils the mysteries and explains the science behind this revolutionary approach to looking your absolute best. With Terrie Absher Kochman as your guide, we’ll explore how beauty comes from balance. As the founder of Total Glow Med Spa in Palo Alto, California, Terrie’s unique background in traditional Korean practices, Ayurvedic teaching, and modern aesthetic medicine can help you transform the way you see yourself — inside and out.

Terrie offers people in the Bay Area and beyond an unmatched approach to beauty and wellness through her med spa. While many others only see cosmetic care through a modern Western lens, she combines time-honored Eastern methods with the latest learnings of science. Since 2005, she has endeavored to put her beliefs into practice, emphasizing a whole-body perspective that focuses on body, environment, and lifestyle to address cosmetic concerns. The result? A method of understanding beauty that combines personalized analysis, advanced techniques, and natural products to help her clients look and live their best.

Each week on The Total Glow Podcast, we’ll dive deep into how our bodies respond to the world around us and how that impacts our pursuit of beauty. We’ll unpack the promises modern techniques can offer while also holding onto the truths found in ancient wisdom. We promise you’ll learn a lot and even have some fun with a mix of interviews and educational musings. In the end, you’ll discover how to live your best, whole-body life — and look your best every step of the way.
