Joseph’s Story

Decades prior to founding SaunaBar, Founder Joseph 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 well-being with alternative modalities to be at their best.”

“I was told by doctors more than 30 years ago that there is no cure for Crohn’s disease and that I will eventually die from it. I am now 52 years old and at my optimal health without any symptoms or issues.”

Joseph’s Inspiration

Joseph continues to draw inspiration from his incredible story of recovering from Crohn’s and has turned his life into one of healthful purpose by offering the LA community holistic options for managing their mind, body, and spirit.

Therefore, in 2008, the concept of SaunaBar was born.

SaunaBar (previously known as Firm Body Evolution – FBE Spa) is truly the Pioneer in bringing Infrared SaunaPod Therapy to the Los Angeles market.

“When we opened 10 years ago, our technologies were unheard of. Achieving a big milestone like bringing awareness to infrared sauna technology and other alternative modalities to the masses, is something we are very proud of.”

How Infrared Sauna Changed Joseph’s Life

SaunaBar’s Infrared Pods are known to detox the body on a cellular level, relieve pain, reduce anxiety, improve sleep, increase energy, repair sun damage, and even reduce wrinkles and crow’s feet.

SaunaBar utilizes the latest technology that has been around for years in Europe and Asia. This includes Near Infrared red light therapy, Far Infrared therapy, Lymphatic Compression Massage, Whole Body Vibration, and Magnetic resonance therapy. These options help clients manage stress, weight control, relaxation, anti-aging and so much more. SaunaBar offers one-on-one support via in-house coaches that personalize the customer experience, focusing on their specific needs and goals.

Joseph, 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. Joseph wishes to help people become aware of how looking and feeling better through holistic methodology can Transform their entire lives.

Our Mission at SaunaBar is to help people look and feel better from the inside out.
