In this post, Dr. Weidner interviews Thad Gerber, who is the owner of an Inada DreamWave massage chair. Thad initially chose and purchased a Luraco iRobotics 7, but soon returned it, and ultimately purchased an Inada DreamWave.

Customer Question #1 What are the differences (as far as the massage’s outcome is concerned) between the S-track and the L-track massage chairs? My Response #1 The major difference between the L-Track and S-Track chairs is that the L-Track will provide a roller massage to muscles that heretofore have only been addressed with airbags. The […]
