Although Nashville is known for its hard partying, honky tonk ways, we spent some time exploring the other side of “Nashvegas” and fell in love with the city’s emerging wellness, fitness and fashion scene. 

Following are a few of our favorite ways to stay grounded, present and in “The NOW”. 

Spinning, rowing or barre, there are so many great classes to check out for a pre-massage sweat session. Krank Fit, Row House and Relevé One are three places we recommend in the area. 

Shopping can be its own form of therapy and Nashville has some of the best vintage and denim in the country. Imogene and Willie for custom fit denim is a favorite. We also love hitting up all the local vintage stores for the best cowboy boots, rock T’s and iconic looks around,

Starstruck Vintage and Black Shag are always stocked up with cool finds.

Although barbecue reigns supreme, there are plenty of options for taking it slow and eating healthy when you want to switch it up in Nashville. Firepot Nomadic Teas is perfect for taking a moment to be present and relax. True Food Kitchen for plant based and protein rich meals when you are short on time or Franklin Juice for a quick pick-me-up are perfect. Red Pony is our stop in Franklin for sophisticated Southern cuisine. It’s also known as a great date spot perfectly paired with massages at The NOW. 

If all of this self-care and fun leaves you feeling frazzled, head to Flourish Meditation for a mind, body and breathwork class and then book your massage at The NOW Franklin. Our signature menu with all our beloved enhancements, including Gua Sha and The Calm Balm, are waiting to soothe away any stress and muscle tension. 

Relax. Reset. Recharge in Nashville NOW.
