People always want to know the “why?” behind something new. It may be a move, a new job, “why did you cut your hair like that?” or A NEW BUSINESS IDEA! For us there were many years that the topic of “what can we do for a business?” came up around the table or on vacation...Nothing ever stuck until August of 2017. We were up at the lake house and that same “ole” topic surfaced again, but this time it got pretty serious! We started throwing out idea that came to mind. Some were a little crazy, a few that got us thinking “maybe!”... I think for the most part we all really knew what we wanted to do in the back of our minds but for personal reasons it held us back from hitting “the GO button”...But behind any GREAT business venture there is going to be some twists and turns. After careful consideration of many things, we all agreed that we would at least do some research on SALT THERAPY! Initially that’s all we knew about and only very little. After that week we headed home and the research began...Little did we know, there is SO much more to salt therapy and it is all over the United States.
Salt therapy, float tanks, red light therapy....All these things were popping up as we were reading and studying up on the wellness industry. That is when we knew this was going far beyond JUST salt therapy! It tooks months of computer research, phone calls, meetings and collaborating together to even “break ground”. In April of 2018 we FINALLY started construction on The Salt Room & Wellness Spa Saginaw. We opened in October of this year and it hasn’t slowed down since!
So WHY, you ask, did we open a wellness spa? We want to be a solution for people trying to regain or maintain optimal health here in our community of Saginaw, Mi. All our services are 100% natural and safe for EVERYONE. Our business is not limited to just woman or adults. The spa is family friendly enviroment and we want to make you feel comfortable and cozy like you’re right at home! So if you haven’t already, stop in. We would love to meet you and your families. Hope to see you very soon!

Katie Sadehvandi, Founding PartnerBorn and raised in Saginaw, Michigan, I am more than excited to bring something so amazing and necessary to our community! About 9 years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that turned my life upside down. However, it also opened my eyes for the need of a more natural approach to healing. I didn’t realize the decline of my health until it was to late, but being a wife and a mom of two amazing boys, giving up was not an option. With much prayer, research and collaborating with my doctor, I have started to regain my “new normal” back. Opening the spa is so much more than just a new business venture for me. It is driven by pure passion to share new avenues of natural healing! We are not about natural vs. medical. We are about the combination of the two so you can achieve optimal health to live your best life!
Ali Sadehvandi, Founding Partner
I am one of the founding partners of The Salt Room Saginaw. I was born and raised in Saginaw, Mi, graduated from Freeland High School in 2004. After graduation I went on to work for the family business for about 6 years. Not long after I started my career at Guardian Medical Monitoring. This is where I started to form my passion for the health and wellness industry. I wanted to build my career around it! I always had a desire to follow in my parents footsteps and become a successful entrepreneur. Now that I have the opportunity to open my own business that is surrounded around health and wellness,I could not be more happier to see my dreams come together!
Joan Sadehvandi, Founder
I was born and raised in Allen Park, Michigan then moved to Saginaw in 1978. In 1981 my hubby and I opened the first independent video store in Saginaw. As the years went on we opened five more locations in the Tri-city area. It was a fun and exciting business and I loved being a part of the business community. With the new technologies on the horizon, the video industry declined. We liquidated and closed our last store in 2010. After brainstorming with my son and daughter in law, we decided to open a wellness spa. We are very excited to bring the many natural and alternative health benefits we have to offer at our spa to our community. So here I am not quite ready for retirement yet but ready to throw my hat in another ring. Here’s to our health and wellness!
