What is VETIVER?
The word Vetiver refers to a perennial grass native to tropical regions of Asia. Vetiver oil is known to provide a calming, grounding effect on emotions and it acts as an anti-inflammatory agent for the nervous and circulatory systems. Its earthy, exotic aroma has been a favorite of perfumers for centuries appealing to both men and women. At Vetiver Modern Massage we strive to be a refuge for body, mind, and spirit and it's our goal to be accessible to men and women alike.
Sherri Coates & Karen Kops are both passionate about self care and healthy living and try to find the time for both.
After meeting 5 years ago, they agreed to give up their corporate design careers to focus on creating a non-toxic spa called Poppy & Monroe. As anyone who's started a business knows, their lives soon became busier then they could ever have imagined. With little time for themselves, massage outings soon became a way for them to connect, relax and regroup outside of their day to day. A life-long fan of reflexology centers on the California coast, Sherri suggested they bring the seated massage concept to Nashville in a new way. The goal was to create a space where clients could call day-of and be seen by skilled technicians in a non-stuffy atmosphere. Organic massage products were a must and a serene, chic aesthetic was key. Realizing that most people are over-scheduled, they wanted to offer 30 minute services hopeful that even a small amount of respite could change someone's whole day. With this is mind, Vetiver Modern Massage was born.
