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)

First, let me start by commenting on Dr. Weidner and his company. Not only did he personally take my call late at night to answer all of the questions I had, he has continually follow-up to make sure everything went okay. Delivered promptly and the delivery group was great. They took it downstairs, unpacked it, took away the (not insignificant) packing materials, and setup the chair. When they left, you would not know they were there, other than for the head-turning chair that was now in my family room.
As for the chair, as I expected, the only complaint I had was that I waited this long. We all immediately took turns in the chair and were amazed at how "unlike a massage chair" this seemed. The experience in the chair is remarkable. The programming of the combination of rollers/airbags/thumping/heat/vibration/etc. If you close your eyes, you can actually get lost in the massage. I have to admit to having fallen asleep with the "night" program. I guess it did it's job....
Very pleased with the chair, but more so, with this retailer. Would definitely do business with them again.

This review should help people that are big in size and weight and are on the fence to jump off and make the purchase!
I am 5 ft 11" 315 LB 40 year old man, who suffers from an incurable medical condition that bombards me with chronic pain.
I had an issue trying to sit on the chair without breaking and crushing the hip air bags, I thought I wasn't going to be able to use this wonderful therapeutic relaxing healing machine...but after trying over and over I gave up on it and was going to return it...then I decided NOT to give up and try again...success!!! I was able to negotiate safely and properly a way to get into the chair without crushing the hip air bags...once in...everything was perfect!
First off, Inada should rename it's proprietary "Dreamwave" to "Goodnight Irene", because this feature will make you want to sleep in no time. It rocks and sways your seat, hips and hip and leg muscles that you just got to try, like floating on a wave and being stretched and held in a gods arms. Every pre-set massage program is amazing as the chair reads your Shiatsu points and length and width of your spine...the stretch program is one of my favorites....awwww heck their all my favorite.
On the bottom of the easy to use remote is the "manual" commands, so you can designate a certain part of the body only to concentrate on. The heat controls are a nice touch and the ottoman will make your feet and calves feel like a million bucks, there's also a metal plate with half moon balls on it that push up and massage the bottom of your feet...wonderful!!
You can use the strength of the air bags and rollers with the default settings out of the box, or you can adjust the strength and pressure with the remote if you find it too hard for you...but remember, if you have tight unused muscles, or knots everywhere, this machine will take care of it, but if you feel that it hurts it's because your not used to massages and manipulation of blood and muscles...truly remarkable machine...give it time...you will want to put this machine in your will...lol.
At 315 lbs, while in the chair the motor spoke to me...it said..."Paul, relax I'm an Inada, if you can fit you can sit, now relax and enjoy the massage, I can hold your weight with no problem". You will find it hard to believe that there isn't human hands inside this machine!, stress and pain melts away.
Price, yeah I know it's expensive, however it's WORTH EVERY CENT!!!!!!
This is no Chinese inferior made product, this is no cheap mall outlet chair with a cheesy 90 day to a measly 1 yr warranty.
This isn't a chair manufactured by some fly by night company who doesn't back up their product %100.
Now, for Dr. Weidner, a patient and super informative expert on massage chairs will guide you with a no pressure experience, although I just received my chair, I know if there's anything I need or any questions he will be there before and after the sale. The very same goes for InadaUSA, nice folks.
So, if your big like me or not, you simply CANNOT purchase a better massage chair, and you cannot get an upper echelon manufactured massage chair for under $4K, this price point for this chair fits the bill for it's therapeutic capability and excellence in manufacturing...folks...there is a HUGE and noticeable difference in the make and performance of this beautifully designed machine.
I purchased mine in Dark Brown....WARNING....not in the right light it looks pure black...even my delivery guys thought it was black...it's a TRUE dark brown and it's a stunning addition to anybody's home.
The reason I wanted to rush and hurry up my review for this chair is so that anybody that is considering it to NOT wait till Feb 1st, this chair increases in price $800, be a smart and savvy consumer and make this call to Dr. Weidner and staff!!!!
I hope this helped people that are overweight and or hesitant, and I hope this helped out people who need to know this chair's almost infinite capabilities...but...you need to sit in it first.
Of course I can't explain every feature and nook and cranny unless your in the mood to read a short novel...lol!!
Thank you for reading my review on the Inada Dreamwave Plus massage chair.
I am 310 lbs currently, been dieting for 2 weeks...just weighed myself while writing this...-5 pounds...I'll take it. I forgot, when you get off the chair you will notice improved circulation, better breathing, well being, happiness, alive, more energy, and the body's natural pain blockers in full affect!!

Alan, I purchased my Inada Sogno almost 2 months ago from you and absolutely LOVE it. My wife also loves the chair. We use it every day to relieve stress and rejuvenate tired muscles. We couldn't be happier with this purchase, and it's worth every penny we spent! After I ordered the chair, I needed help to sort out the delivery details, and I was able to reach you right away by phone. I really appreciated your quick follow up with the delivery company, and that you got back to me the next day with a solution and confirmation of the delivery plan. Also, you contacted me before and after delivery by email with helpful information and great communication. This type of extrordinary service was such a pleasant experience, I will certainly come back to you in the future.
Kindest regards, Robert Day
