The DreamWave Classic massage chair (formerly known as the Inada Sogno Dreamwave) is the chair that has revolutionized the massage chair industry. This iconic massage chair boasts some innovative features that had never been seen before and, quite frankly, have not been replicated since. In 2008, the DreamWave introduced full arm massage, DreamWave seat airbag technology, true 3-D back massage, iliotibial band airbag massage, trapezia massage, award-winning body design and style, and neck airbag AND roller massage...features that had never been seen before in a massage chair.

In 2014, the DreamWave added double the amount of automated programs, consecutive session capability up to 30 minutes per session, auto-recline and auto-restore, 360 degree airbag coverage of the forearms, real heat in the seat and low back, deep shiatsu sole massage inserts, and so much more!

Today you will see the body design being copied by many of the chinese imitiation massage chairs, but you will not find a chair that puts it all together like the DreamWave. Even after all these years, it is still in a class all it's own.

It has an optical body scanning technology that will make you feel like this chair "speaks to you." Over 100 airbags will massage you in areas that you had no idea could be massaged by a chair. White Glove Service is included in this once-in-a-lifetime Japanese-made massage chair.

Read the reviews for yourself. You will not find a better made, more positively-reviewed and talked about chair anywhere. If you want the very best money can buy, look no further than the Dreamwave Classic...widely known as "the best massage chair in the world"!


Dr. Alan Weidner supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The DreamWave Classic is jam packed with so many awesome features. This chair is unique in the fact that almost all of the features you are going to read about are proprietary, meaning that Inada created, and owns the rights to, the specific mechanism so you will not find this on any other chair!

The massage starts by offering awwwwwwe-inspiringDreamWave technology. This technology utilizes the rollers to do a figure eight pattern that mimics massage therapists movements during a shiatsu session. This enables the chair to massage over 1200 square inches of your body. This is the largest coverage offered from ANY massage chair.

For those of you who have been looking for a chair that will really get in and work the tops of the shoulders and neck, you have found it! This chair has a special unit that comes around and not only penetrates deep into those nagging pains in the neck but also gives gentleneck tractionas well!

As we move down the body we come to thearms and forearms massage. This chair delivers a gentle, undulating massage all the way down to your fingertips with its 20 air cells that are designed to inflate and deflate at a precisioned pace. There is nothing quite like getting your arms and hands rubbed at the end of the day to re-energize them! The airbags in the forearms now provide 360 degree coverage!

This wonderful chair also offers airbags that inflate around the hip and thigh to knead these large muscles. It also works on the IT band and provides some hip movement.

It has astretch programthat not only takes you into extension and flexion but also gives a slight rotational pull in the shoulders, mid-back and hip. Anyone who has a tight back will appreciate the stretch that this offers after your muscles have been nicely loosened up.

This chair also keeps the family in mind. There is no reason why your children should not be able to benefit from having a massage chair in your home. Inada recognizes that as they have patented a setting in this chair that specializes for young people 14 and up. It's a gentler session for their developing bodies.

As well as the stretch program and youth program this beautiful recliner offers eight otherauto-programsincluding a morning and night program! But before you start your program you will be scanned by the DreamWave Classic'soptical sensors. These are designed to find your shiatsu points which are unique to each individual, so the chair is "learning" YOUR body. After it has finished the scan it will provide you with your own totally personalized massage chair session!

The designer of this dynamic chair recliner is the world-renowned designer Toshiyuki Kita. His work has earned him a permanent place in The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and Pinakothek der Modarne in Munich. He has taken the functionality, style and grace of massage and incorporated it into a state-of-the-art massage chair experience!

    We bought the Songo Dream Wave chair and absolutely love it. The delivery was on time and it was a very professional set up of the chair. It did take a while for us to figure the chair out as there are so many features. I especially love the dream wave setting and also the hand massage feature. I am a small person, so love the way the chair adjusts to my body size. The youth program also works well for me. I cannot say enough about Dr. Weidner and his efforts to always take your calls and explain any questions you have. He was a pleasure to work with.

    review of DreamWave Classic Massage Chair
    Sep 30, 2013 at 11:39 AM

    My wife and I did a lot of online and in-store research on massage chairs and have bought seat toppers and neck massagers from time to time to help with her fibromyalgia and other physical difficulties. We use the sogno every day after light exercise and every night before bed with great results.

    The wife was apprehensive at first how the rollers and airbags would affect her FM "tender points" but was delighted to find that the chair didn't hurt even at normal settings. She particularly likes the foot massage and the neck message when her head is positioned just right on the pillow, as well as the Dreamwave mode, which is very relaxing. Also, she has put the extra included pads to use, cushioning her lower back while getting a more intense upper back massage by the rollers.

    A few observations/quibbles:
    - Some other chairs have some gentle stretching of the arms in addition to leg stretching, but the Sogno's stretch mode does not include arm stretching.
    - Neck traction is also very limited, and more due to gravity than anything else. However, the overall neck and shoulder massage is quite excellent (wife says that it has solved the majority of her tension headache problems already).
    - I personally don't like or need lumbar heat, but my wife indicates that the chair heat is very mild for her tastes without the ability to adjust it.
    - I like the presets but can see why people would want to design their own to fit their own needs
    - My wife is 5 feet tall and gets full coverage, but has to get her body arranged just right to have it work. The arm massage tends to miss her a little bit at the hands.
    - We opted out of the white glove delivery... we strongly, strongly, strongly recommend that if you purchase this chair, you do the white glove service or make sure you have at least 3 (better 4) decently-sized people present to bring in the curbside boxes and lift the base out of the biggest box. The assembly itself was quite easy but don't dismiss the box weight like I did!
    - Shipping took exactly 10 days from CA to NY

    We're only in our early thirties but are already seeing our chair investment pay dividends for my wife's health with the added bonus of keeping my body stress down as well. I have listed our quibbles but really, the pros far outweigh the cons/issues. My wife also wants to mention that the chair fits perfectly on a 36x60 inch area rug (to protect the wood floor) and that the faux leather is much softer and nicer than real car leather, not like the synthetic leather on all the other chairs we've tried. The price tag is what it is, unfortunately, but so far we have found it well worth it. I would recommend purchasing from, as Dr. Weidner was very helpful on the phone and in email.

    I received this chair one month ago. I did some research on the net after I decided to get a massage chair. Inada Sogno DreamWave looks like the best of all, specially after I read all the reviews on this site. I also found lots of videos about this chair on youtube. Dr. Weidner's demonstration on the videos are really helpful. When I called in, it was surprised that Dr. Weidner was on the other end. Now this massage chair becomes my favorite chair. It is very comfortable and beautiful. It can make me relax after one day hard work. I am really enjoying it.

    Thanks Dr. Weidner.

    review of DreamWave Classic Massage Chair
    Jul 01, 2013 at 09:23 PM

    Hands down the best $8000 bucks I've spent. I have got the chair for 1 week now. Everyone in the family has been fighting to stay in the chair as long as possible. 3 adults and 2 elderlies. The chair has seen about 5 hours of use everyday and so far it is holding up well. I figure it costs about $100 per hr if you get a massage at the spa. So I have gotten about $3500 worth of massage out of the chair in one week. No bad at all.

    Economics aside, the chair gives great massages. Every time I used it, I ended up falling asleep in the chair. It is very relaxing. I don't have any chronic pain but I am on my feet 10 hrs a day. I especially like the foot massage. It squeezes at all the right spots on my feet. It just feels great.

    I have tried the OSIM massage chair at Brookstone ($3500) and I thought it was quite good. I started researching and learned about the Inada Chair. I took a leap of faith and spent $8000 and hoped that this chair would be even better then the OSIM. I am glad I spent extra. The Inada Songo is much much better. If you could afford it, it is certainly worth the money.

    The ordering process is easy. I am surprise Dr. Weidner answers the phone himself, not some operator. The white glove service works great. 2 workers came and installed the chair, it took 30 min and the chair was ready to go.

    All in all, a great experience.

    review of DreamWave Classic Massage Chair
    Jun 09, 2013 at 05:38 PM

    After trying several of the top massage chairs in the industry, I decided to get the Inada Sogno Dreamweaver. It gave the most relaxing, deep, human-like massage; the others were too mechanical and too rough/unrefined; they made me feel like I was actually getting beat up.

    I decided to make the purchase with Dr. Weidner because of his comprehensive knowledge, detailed online videos, competitive pricing, willingness to return phone calls timely, and trust-ability -- all of which are a rarity nowadays. He showed true customer service and willingness to answer all my questions instead of just trying to make a sale.

    The massage quality of the Inada Sogno Dreamweaver is excellent. The built in programs do what they claim and with ease. The ‘sleep’ program is perfect just before going to bed, and the ‘morning’ program makes me feel rejuvenated when starting my day. The ‘full body massage’ program uses all of the chair's features and feels incredible after a long day.

    While it’s definitely the best massage I’ve experienced from a massage chair, there are a few areas of improvement that Inada should consider:

    - The remote isn’t backlight so it can’t be read in darkness; I like getting a massage before going to bed with the lights off.

    - The chair does not automatically recline or upright itself via a single button press; instead, the ‘recline’ button needs to be held down to position the chair appropriately.

    - There's no memory function to remember my favorite customized routines; it must be set each time.

    - While the ‘recline’ position goes completely horizontal, it would be a nice option to have a zero-gravity position as well.

    That said, its main purpose of providing an excellent massage is extremely well executed and far outweighs any of the above ‘cons’.
