The team at The Nessie is composed of people who live and die by their morning rituals, will go to lengths to find the best sweat-wicking running socks, and are known in their network as the go-to person for a spa recommendation. In other words, we love the world of wellness. Our editorial team’s work has been featured in some of the biggest brands in the health and wellness space, like Greatist, Prevention, Elemental, and Self.
