Another Great Question From A Massage Chair Buyer
I get questions all the time from visitors to my massage chair site. I love that people feel comfortable enough with me to call or write when they have questions or concerns about massage chairs. Here is a great question from someone suffering from neck and upper extremity concerns. His questions about the differences between the Inada Sogno and Osaki 7000 massage chairs are legitimate. I hope you can glean something from his question and my response.
Massage Chair Question:
Massage Chair Answer:
Wow, David, I am very sorry about your predicament. Muscle atrophy is not a good thing. It goes without saying that you would want a chair that has a decent neck massage feature. The good thing about the Inada Sogno and the Osaki 7000 is that both of them have headrests with neck airbag massage (the Inada Sogno neck airbag massage is far more discriminating and superior to that of the Osaki 7000 massage chair) but the headrests can be lifted up and over the back of the chair and you can access the massage rollers on the neck. So, you have two neck massage options for both models.I might also mention that the Inada Sogno has a more intense airbag massage of the top of the shoulders where the trapezia muscles are located. It truly feels like a massage therapist is digging his/her elbows into your traps. This is the traction portion of the Inada Sogno, which would serve you very well with your cervical (neck) condition. The Osaki 6000 massage chair has a feature similar to the Sogno but not nearly as specific and discriminating as the Sogno airbags. I don’t believe the Osaki 7000 has the shoulder airbags for the trap muscles.
