Meet Joseph Harounian of SaunaBar in Brentwood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Joseph Harounian.

Joseph, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
After losing my health at age 20 and struggling with medications, misdiagnoses, and the other side effects of Western Medicine for three years, I started looking into alternative options. That’s when I discovered the amazing healing benefits of alternative and preventative medicine.

Once I was symptom-free, I was fascinated to learn more about alternative medicine and became really passionate to continue my learning and educate others as well. After learning about modalities such as Infrared Sauna, Lymphatic Massage, and other holistic remedies (like homeopathic medicine), I decided to make it my life’s mission to bring awareness and make it available for others searching to improve their health in LA.

In 2008, I opened a wellness center incorporating the latest holistic healing and detox technologies that have been around for years in Europe and Asia, but were not yet mainstream in the US. Since then, we have grown leaps and bounds with a large following of clients who love everything we do!

My team and I enjoy helping people look and feel younger naturally. We can all use more relaxation and rejuvenation in our daily lives, and that’s what SaunaBar is all about.

Our goal is to open more locations around Los Angeles – and eventually around the world – to bring awareness to holistic detox, all-natural weight loss, and infrared sauna therapy.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Opening up back in 2008, it was definitely much more of a struggle due to no awareness about holistic healing like Infrared Sauna and Lymphatic Drainage. Our pods are very “high-tech” and to be honest, I think at first the word “holistic” scared away some people. It’s something different from the norm of Western Medicine.

With a lot more awareness today, people search for our technology, find us online (at, and book a session before even coming in! It’s great.
