Which Massage Chair is Most Comfortable to Sit in While Turned Off?

Best Massage Chair Turned On OR Off?

I received an email from a massage chair shopper recently who asks this question…one that I just happen to get quite a bit from other shoppers. I thought that since I’m asked this a lot, I’d share it and my response with all of you since you may be asking the same thing.

Massage Chair Question:

Hi, Is the Inada Sogno DreamWave massage chair comfortable enough to use as an every day recliner/tv chair for stretches of a few hours at a time? I am interested in getting a massage chair yet want one that can also replace my lounge chair (just a simple Ikea Poang chair) in my bedroom which I use for tv use and reading. I am interested in this chair and the Panasonic MA70 which I see has that removable extra back pad when using it as a regular recliner. It is that added pad that makes me wonder if sitting in the Sogno for an extended period of time would start to get uncomfortable. I think the Sogno on paper seems like it would be more to my liking in terms of its massage features so it’d be nice to know it can also do the double duty as an every day chair. Oh and aesthetics do not matter to me. Thanks Rob

Answer:

Hi, Rob

Thanks for your email. Great questions!

The Inada Sogno massage chair, in my opinion, is the best therapeutic massage chair out there. But, it is certainly not optimal when it comes to just sitting to watch TV or read, unless it is turned on. It is not the most comfortable chair just to sit in…it is hard enough sit comfortably on any massage chair when it is off because of the big empty space down the middle of the back where the rollers go when the chair is turned on.

Now, the Panasonic ma70 massage chair is a new model from Panasonic and is a very nice therapeutic massage chair. It has the jade heated rollers, which we have never before seen in a massage chair. However, with its extra pad, which you mentioned, its rotating ottoman, and its arm rests, it would definitely be a better chair to just sit on for relaxation purposes, without the chair actually turned on.

I hope this helps. Again, it is just my opinion, but based on my experience with both chairs, I’d have to say the ma70 is the better massage chair for using as a regular recliner/lounger.

  1. Recently I bought a massage chair for my parents. Does every use of a massage chair is harmful? Someone told it is not good idea to use it daily.

    1. Hey, Jude
      Thanks for your inquiry. We suggest using pain as your guide. If someone hurts after using a massage chair, wait until the discomfort is gone before using it again. Once a day is normal usage for most folks.
