The difference between conventional saunas, and infrared saunas is that the heat produced by the infrared variety is penetrative. The heat produced by a conventional sauna heats the air, and of course, your body begins to heat up from that convection heat.
The heat produced by an infrared sauna actually heats objects instead of just air, and that heat penetrates more deeply - up to 60mm - into the body.
The result of this is that the joints and muscular tissue absorbs the heat, and benefits directly from it.
