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)

I have the Sogno Dream Wave Plus and I love the chair. I have needed massages on a regular basis. I no longer need them as this chair replaces them and is even better. I continue to find new ways to hit trigger points and the massages are truly amazing! I would absolutely recommending to anyone to make this investment.

The Inada Sogno PLUS is a dream chair.
I was surprise when it arrived a week early, A very pleasant surprise Sogno starts my day and ends my day.
The morning and night programs are super relaxing. The Dream Weaver setting will Rock you to sleep.
After two weeks my back is less tight and my neck is feeling great.
I suffer for hypertension and have notice a 10 to 15 point drop after using the chair .
I highly recommend this Sogno and Dr. Weidner at massage-chair-relief.com
