I get plenty of questions about the Inada Sogno and how it compares to other models. Here is a great question from an Inada Sogno Dreamwave shopper and my response…
I’ve been researching your website and have a few questions if you don’t mind. As much as I’d like to buy an Inada Sogno, it simply isn’t in my budget at this time. I could probably save for a few months and get one, and I’m trying to determine whether or not to do that. It is expensive but I could recoup that money real quick by not paying for professional massages. It would be nice to get a thorough massage every day! I’ve read nothing but good things about the Sogno, but I do have concerns on whether or not it would be strong enough. I like very deep tissue massage.
Does latest Osaki chair (7200) give a similar massage? Have you sat in the 7200 yet? I like a very strong, aggressive massage. One criticism I’ve read online about the Osaki chairs is that they give a strong lower back massage but tend to be weaker on the mid and upper back area do to the “S” curve feature of the chair. Have you found this to be the case? Also, are the Osaki chairs built to last? I know the Sogno is made in Japan, compared to China for the Osaki’s. If I’m making such a big investment I really want it to last. A solid warranty is very important to me also.
Does the Sogno ever go on sale? Do you ever offer blemished models at a discount? I don’t think I’d want to purchase a used or demo chair though. Are the Inada’s and Osaki chairs the strongest models you offer?
Thanks for your time!
