| On Health and Wellness
Take a deep breath. Relax. The is just what the doctor ordered. An oasis of calm right in the middle of town. Enter
Emeryville Health and Wellness Center and take a load off. Or have founder and Ashiatsu therapist, Saskia Kleinert,
put her feet to the task! (Ashiatsu is deep tissue massage performed with the feet rather then the hands.)
Saskia's philosophy is based on the premise that we are all too sedentary.
Our bodies were made to move. If they don't move they break down. "I always
wanted clients to get better," says Kleinert, "I practice several kinds of massage but
sometimes people have conditions where I'll suggest they go to another type of healer, like an acupuncturist.
But they never follow doctor's orders! Now, with the acupuncturist, in-house, I can see my clients get better!"
Saskia decided to bring in other services to surround her massage therapy practice with yoga classes, acupuncture,
skin care and chiropractic. Now with fourteen professionals, she feels she can truly treat clients holistically.
People can combine appointments and make good health more attainable and efficient in their busy lives. Why Emeryville?
"I always thought Emeryville was a great place to
work because it is so accessible," says Saskia. "Small businesses are enhanced by this small town!"
Entering the center, you are soothed by gentle orchids, filtering sunlight and chilled citrus water. With several different modalities of
treatment accessible, you can pick and choose what you need. You may want to begin with Yoga.
Yoga can open the door for you to learn more about your body. Karla Rodebush, athlete and
certified Hatha Yoga instructor, can help you peel away the layers of stress and create an
inner calmness. Several Yoga instructors provide enough day and night classes that can fit anyone's schedule.
Fees range from $l0-$15 per class. Call 510-526-5206 for details about Yoga
