SACRAMENTO — Cori Martinez spent around 20 years waiting to open Asha Urban Baths, which just opened its doors at 2417 27th Street.
The tradition of using bathhouses for wellness, however, has been around for thousands of years in both Europe and Asia.
“So, it’s an opportunity to use water and heat as a resource for wellness and just destressing, and also community,” Martinez said.
The bathhouse has a myriad of options, from a sauna to a cold bath, for relaxing and unwinding with new and old friends.
The grand opening celebration for the bathhouse will be on Saturday, Jan. 7. Asha Urban Baths is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
