West Los Angeles holistic wellness spa SaunaBar is excited to commemorate 10 years of offering residents healthy alternatives for weight loss, relaxation, and detox solutions. Founder Joseph Harounian continues to draw inspiration from his personal story of recovering from Crohn’s disease and turning his life into one of healthful purpose by offering the LA community new options for managing the mind, body, and soul.
“When we started a decade ago, our technologies were unheard of. Achieving a big milestone like bringing awareness to infrared sauna technology and other alternative modalities and not only staying in business through that time but also growing, is something we are very proud of,” said Harounian.
Decades prior to founding his Los Angeles practice, Harounian battled Crohn’s disease, which spurred his interest in healing and alternative/preventative modalities to help treat himself and eventually others.
SaunaBar is popular for their personal wellness offerings utilizing the latest technology, including Infrared SaunaPod (red light therapy), Lymphatic Compression Massage, Whole Body Vibration, and the Magnesphere (magnetic resonance therapy). These options help their loyal clients manage stress, weight control, relaxation, anti-aging, and more. SaunaBar offers one-on-one support via in-house coaches that personalize the customer experience, focusing on their specific needs and goals.
Decades prior to founding his Los Angeles practice, Harounian battled Crohn’s disease, which spurred his interest in healing and alternative/preventative modalities to help treat himself and eventually others. “I healed myself and now am helping others reach their optimal wellbeing with alternative modalities to be at their best,” noted Harounian. “I was told by doctors more than thirty years ago that there is no cure for Crohn’s disease, and that I will eventually die from it. I am now fifty-two years old and at my optimal health without any symptoms or issues.”
Harounian is also known as a pioneer for being the first to bring SaunaPod Therapy to the Los Angeles market. The Infrared SaunaPods are known to detox the body on a cellular level, relieve pain, reduce anxiety, improve sleep, increase energy, repair sun damage, and even help reduce wrinkles. Harounian, who is openly gay, is passionate about his philanthropic efforts and is heavily involved with the LGBTQ community, organizing programs to help with the coming-out process. He also speaks regularly and participates in local programs that specifically touch on wellness and creating a life of physical, spiritual, and overall wellness.
