The new Inada Yume massage chair is scheduled to arrive in the US on the last week of July. It will be ready to ship out the first week of August. We have this chair in our showroom and it has been very well received so far. Most people who
come to the showroom gravitate to the Sogno right away, but now they are checking out the Yume because of it's looks and the feature set, which, once again and as expected from Inada, is quite unique.
I received a customer email last week that I thought I'd share with you. We get asked alot about the old Sogno Standard model and the current Inada Sogno Dreamwave Plus massage chair. This email inquires about them. I tie in the new Yume chair into my response:
Dear Dr Alan Weidner,
I'm still interested in the Sogno Massage chair but the price is still too high, however will you tell me the differences between the Inada Sogno Dream wave and the Sogno Dream wave Plus (the newest Inada product).
Thank you very much.
Thank you for your inquiry.
When the Sogno first came to the USA in 2008, there were two models, the Sogno Standard and the Sogno Dreamwave Plus. Because of the popularity of the Sogno Dreamwave Plus, the Sogno Standard was discontinued by the end of that year. Now, the Sogno Dreamwave is the only Sogno model that Inada still has available. If you'd like to know the difference between those two models, you can read this blog entry I wrote back when they first came out: http://www.massage-chair-
Just two weeks ago, Inada came out with a new massage chair, called the YuMe massage chair. I have written a review on it and you can see what it is about here, on my Facebook page (the chair won't be available in stores until mid July, so we are asked not to have the chair on our site yet, although we can take orders for it over the phone): http://www.facebook.com/home.
and here is a bit more about it: http://www.massage-chair-relief.com/blog/chair-models/more-on-the-new-inada-yume-massage-chair/
The price of the new YuMe chair is $5499. It is not nearly as feature-rich as the Sogno, but a great chair with new and unique features on it (like the rocking and the calf massage).
I will be writing a review comparing the two chairs in the near future. If you have any other questions, or would like to place an order for either chair, please feel free to email me back or call me on my personal cell number 801-651-2026.
Thanks, again, for your inquiry.
Dr. Alan Weidner
