Best Health and Wellness Center: A holistic complement to Western medicine
Emeryville Health and Wellness Center
In Emeryville Health and Wellness Center owner Saskia Kleinert's homeland of Switzerland, health care is a far more holistic affair than here in the United States. Swiss doctors commonly practice multiple forms of medicine, combining Western and Eastern traditions and a variety of healing methods. US doctors are more likely to specialize in one or two fields, leaving large gaps in patient care. With this in mind, Kleinert set out to create a wellness center that would complement Western medicine. Since opening solo a few years ago, she has assembled a cast of twenty practitioners who operate as independent contractors out of the tranquil space. Services offered include chiropractic, acupuncture, aromatherapy, massage and bodywork, hypnotherapy, yoga, Pilates, qigong, and whole-health consultations, all of which puts this site among the East Bay's most comprehensive wellness centers. Still, this doesn't stop Kleinert from cheerfully referring patients to whoever she thinks can provide the best care. No amount of massage, after all, can mend a broken leg.
