Can’t decide which type of sauna you’d like to purchase? Here are 3 benefits of infrared saunas over the traditional ones:
An infrared sauna looks similar to a traditional sauna except there aren’t any hot coals since the heat is emitted from the built-in infrared heaters, which are located in the sides and the top of the sauna (don’t worry, they aren’t even hot to touch). Unlike a normal sauna that heats up quite quickly, relaxes the body and opens up the pores for a serious sweat session, an infrared sauna safely penetrates deep into joints and muscles with the same rays that come from the sun — minus the UV radiation.

Another difference between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna is the amount of power required to operate each unit. Traditional saunas require more overall power to run, with a typical sauna taking up 6 kw of power in comparison to the typical 1.6 kw needed for the infrared sauna. This means that a traditional sauna is almost three times as expensive to run as an infrared sauna. This can make a difference, depending on how often you use the unit. Source: Livestrong
Comfort and Safety
Conventional saunas operate at extremely high temperatures which may be unsafe for the very young or elderly. Further, surfaces in a traditional sauna can reach temperatures that can cause burns. Infrared saunas achieve the same benefits at far lower operating temperatures. Due to the harsh operating conditions in a traditional sauna, a sound system to enjoy while you are relaxing in your sauna is out of the question. On the other hand, you can enjoy your favorite music in an infrared sauna. Source: Evolution Health
