The Inada DreamWave 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 Inada Dreamwave...widely known as "the best massage chair in the world"!
The Inada DreamWave 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-inspiringDream Wave 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 well...so 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'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!

Inada DreamWave Massage Chair Reviews (77)

We recently acquired the Inada Sogno Massage Chair with the help of Dr. Alan Weidner. The service was outstanding, the chair is an enormous edition to our household, and it was definitely the best price on the internet. Dr. Weidner gets on the phone with you and is happy to give you his cell phone number. He throws in a few extras, which makes it all worth while. If you are a type of person that seeks the highest quality chair on the market, give him a call. It was fun to speak with Dr. Weidner, because he is super professional and takes the time to walk you through the entire process from the purchase, all the way through to your first massage. He is extremely knowledgeable about all the massage products out there and will try to match you with what it is that you are looking for. The chair itself, leaves you completely at peace. It is fantastic at destressing your day. It puts me into a state that I typically can only attain from doing an hour of yoga. Definitely worth every penny. There are very few things like sitting in a quality chair that gently removes any stress from you. As a bonus, it also works on spouses and guests that visit your home. Working hard has gained a new value with the knowledge that my day will end with a Japanese precision massage. This is an investment into your health and wellbeing. - Victor Zach - Arizona

I recently purchased a Songo Dreamwave massage chair from Dr. Weidner and I am very pleased with it. My first encounter with the Dreamwave massage chair was at a chain store that carries products for back relaxation. The sales folks were very pleasant but unable to answer questions that I had about the operation of the chair. I returned a few more times to sample the chair enjoying the experience at each visit. One evening while searching online for the Dreamwave owner's manual I came upon several YouTube videos hosted by Dr. Weidner. Each video explained various features and functions of the chair as well as a link to the website massagechairrelief.com. I placed my order for the Dreamwave over the phone and spoke with the very gracious Dr. Weidner. When my chair arrived it was carefully unloaded and assembled by a fellow named Dominic. Having the white glove delivery and set up was great. I have had the chair for a few weeks now and use it a couple of times a day or more. I especially enjoy having a massage before going to bed at night. I experience a deeper sleep and awake refreshed in the morning. For those of you reading this review who are thinking of purchasing a massage chair, do yourself a favor and choose the Songo Dreamwave. You will be glad you did.

I've had my Dreamwave chair for nearly a month and can't describe just how much I love it!
I travel for my job and put a great deal of wear on my back and hips due to constantly being on the road. I found my best relief came from a good massage, but when I would get back home at 11:00 at night, it was hard getting a massage therapist to make a house call. Because of this, I was having to take muscle relaxers to calm me down enough to sleep nearly every night.
I began researching massage chairs that would give me the relief I needed on my schedule and couldn't find a better reviewed option than the Dreamwave. However, I was still hesitant to make this significant of a purchase online. What if something went wrong?
After calling and talking with Dr. Weidner, I made the leap and bought the chair. The white glove delivery was wonderful (although my delivery guys did not know how to put the chair together, the online assembly videos are great!) and the chair was being used within an hour of the truck pulling up at my front door.
My chair is now used by not just me (2-3 times a day when I'm in town), but by my family and friends, as well. My massage therapist chair works around whatever crazy schedule I have - and I couldn't be more grateful.

I have waited awhile to submit this review. I had already purchased a massage chair (brand name withheld) from a local store in Los Angeles. Though we had spent time trying the chair in the showroom, it quickly became apparent that the rollers were too much for my wife, who suffers from bad...let's call it bad skeletal system. From neck to knees, she has pretty significant issues that cause her great pain and discomfort. She has been under pain management care for years, but if you have experience with that, well...you know. I decided to try a massage chair to see it would help.
I found this site while I was looking at other options, and called Dr. Weidner to get his thoughts on the situation. He recommended we try the Inada Sogna because of the airbags, and degree of control. We tried...we liked...we bought. Unfortunately, I felt compelled to do the exchange at the same location, not only for convenience, but also because the salesperson at the store locally was truly very helpful.
It has been six months since we got the Inada, and all the praise you read about it is totally true. It is simply the best massage chair, and the effect on my wife has been amazing. My concern was that after a few months she would stop using it on a regular basis. Happily, I can say she uses it every day, and sometimes 2-3 times. She now has less pain, walks more upright, and feels better overall.
Though I bought the chair for her, I love it too, and there is hardly a day when I don't use it myself. One of the many things I really love about the chair is its flexibility. You can add or remove padding and the headrest, adjust the roller and air intensity, go for preset massages or manually focus on specific areas. My favorite is running two of the presets in a row. Typically the full body followed by the sleep or day massage, depending on the time of day. The ONLY thing I would like to have is a more extreme setting for the stretch. But that's really not significant. From neck to toes, this chair is stellar.
If Dr. Weidner recommends this chair for you, and you can somehow rationalize the cost (and some of the reviews below do a great job of putting that in perspective), this chair should exceed all of your expectations. One of the best investments I have ever made. Listen to the doctor. While I can't afford a Ferrari or Bentley in the garage, I have one in our living room.

Hello Dr. Weidner!
Thank you for your wonderful customer service and prompt shipping!
I saw the chair on Tuesday 24 September 2013, Dr. Weidner ordered it for me on Wednesday the 25th and I had the chair in my home on Friday the 27th. Talk about instant gratification! By the way I live in Las Vegas and drove up to kick the tires so to speak, on this chair.
Today is October 8th and I have used my chair for 12 days. My neck and shoulders have zero knots in them. My sacrum used to slip out and cause my low back and hip to hurt, it has not slipped since this chair. My significant other has serious back issues. He had to build up to using this chair since it hurt to have massage. As I type this email, he sits in this chair with a look of bliss.
I had a membership to massage envy and would go for two hour massages all the time. I love to be massaged! When asked what I would do if I won the lottery or became rich, I always said I would employ a massage therapist full time so I could get massaged every day. I kid you not.
I use this chair three times a day. When I am on day shift. I get up at 0350 just to have time for my wake up massage. When I get home from work I use it and before bed I use it. I believe in the last 12 days if I paid a massage therapist to do what only I have done in this chair, it would have cost me half the price of the chair. This is not including my spouse or my mom using it.
To all of those people doing research and looking to buy a massage chair, please give Dr. Weidner a chance to change the quality of your life. He did that for me and my family. This is not a fake review designed to lure you in. I am an Air Traffic Controller who stands a lot with previous injuries from the Air Force. I had to make a decision to buy a massage chair and based on my research, I wanted the best. This is an investment for my family's quality of life and something I do not regret one bit!
Thank you so much Dr. Weidner
