Inada calls their headpiece on the Sogno Dreamwave Plus massage chair a cervical traction device. Maybe a little too technical or medical for most of us, but just a fancy name for a headpiece. But, this headpiece does some pretty interesting stuff which differentiate it from other massage chairs. First of all, it has airbags that massage your neck like fingers and airbags that push down on the shoulders, i.e. the trapezia muscles. This is where the “traction” title comes from…the airbags push down on your shoulders thus tractioning your neck, while it is being massaged by those airbags.
But, if you like the old-fashioned roller massage on the neck, the headpiece can be lifted out of the way and the neck can be then massaged by the underlying rollers. I love the trapezius massage. It is very unique to this model and feels great on tight shoulder muscles. Check it out here on this video we created discussing this feature in more detail…
