This past weekend I ventured to Downtown Sacramento for a peace of mind and quiet. Have you ever had a moment of clarity and felt like you needed to be cleansed? This is what Asha provided me.In silent surroundings all I could do was think. I was calm, and at ease . My mind was uncluttered and ready to receive stimulation.
With all my senses tingling and brain neurons firing I came to acceptance. Accepting things I cannot change and enjoying what has and had been placed before me. On this day I enjoyed myself.
Let’s take a dip.........
Asha from the exterior looks like a quaint home but when you open the doors you’re greeted by a smiling staff in a warm lobby . Might I add they are very effective in the checking in process. Keeping it digital ( which I love ) tablets are given where your information is stored. In exchange for your identification a locker key is given, then you are escorted to the changing area ( currently under construction 🚧 due to expansion.) Your escort then goes over policies and procedures for the bathhouse.
What you’ll find
•1 plunging pool
•1 dry sauna
•1 wet steam room
•Showers are in 2 locations in the bathhouse
•Water station is provided.
•Towels can be provided
•Water shoes can be provided
•Seating is also provided
•Massage is available
The skin benefits of the sauna show sweating has a cleansing effect. The heavy sweating induced in a sauna has a cleansing effect on pores and glands, flushing out toxins and impurities. The result is a healthier skin, less prone to acne, blackheads and pimples. However if you are currently experiencing inflammation I’d reduce the time spent in the heat.
Taking time for yourself is key! If you don’t make time for yourself you lose sight of focus. I’m a mother, wife and a business owner losing focus happens daily when you hold many titles. Asha reminded me of who I was and what I needed. I needed to get back to me, the individual. Gia and Gia alone.
Next up on my list......Asha Yoga Studio which is located right behind the bathhouse. Asha is offering up mental, physical and spiritual healing.
