What are alternatives to traditional dry saunas?

Dry Sauna Alternatives

Dry saunas work in much the same way as wet saunas, but without the use of steam. Traditional dry saunas use wood, electric, or gas stoves that heat rocks, thereby heating the air as well.

If you want to use a dry sauna, but don't want to set up a traditional dry sauna heater and rocks, you can use infrared heat to heat your sauna. Infrared heat is a dry heat that mimics the sun's radiant heat without the UV rays that can burn your skin.

An infrared sauna is a completely dry heat, making the end sauna experience similar to that of a traditional dry sauna. You can install infrared heaters in a dedicated sauna room, and have the same ambiance as a traditional sauna, but radiant heat is often easier to install and heats at a much lower heat than other dry saunas – making it cheaper to use.
