Osaki has come out with a chair that offers 3D roller massage technology which will provide one of the most vigorous massage experiences of your life...and allow for the most gentle of massages as well. The 3D roller technology has 5 settings that, when deployed to it's fullest, will extend forward by 3.15 inches and give you a massage like you've never had before. If you are looking for a "deep" tissue massage, the OS-3D Pro Cyber from Osaki is the ticket.
But, the beautiful thing about 3D roller technology is that by retracting the rollers, you can also enjoy a very normal, relaxed massage if you're in the mood for that or if someone else in your home doesn't want the deep tissue massage. This chair has the flexibility to cater to everyone's preferences.
Other features that are must-haves in the massage chair industry today include mechanical foot rollers, 2-stage zero gravity chair positioning, and sophisticated airbag technology. This chair has it all!
Additional features include an MP3 music system, chromotherapy, low back heat, computer body scanning, auto leg scan, and the capacity for a 30 minute massage session.
All-in-all, one of the most comprehensively feature-rich chairs on the market, at a very palatable price point.
A portion of every sale goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation
- 3D Roller Technology - Osaki has included a very broad, 5 intensity-level 3D roller technology; broad in the sense that the intensity can be adjusted significantly in either direction...either more or less intense. If you want an intense and vigorous roller massage, this chair is what you are looking for. Osaki has really provided a wonderful option for those of you who need and want the most vigorous massage as possible, while at the same time providing the wherewithall to lower the intensity, by retracting the 3D rollers, for those of you who also want the lighter, less vigorous massage. By the way, at their maximum, the rollers protrude 3.15"!!!
- Mechanical Foot Rollers - The OS-Cyber has two mechanical rollers per foot. If you have never had foot roller massage before, and the technology is quite innovative, you are going to love having the soles of your feet pampered by these rollers. You have the option to leave them on during the whole massage session or turn them off at any time while the rest of your massage continues.
- Music System - MP3 technology coupled with nice stereo speakers allows you to enjoy your music for stress relief while the chair is providing pain relief.
- Sleek Body Lines - This new OS-3D Pro Cyber model is very reminiscent of the popular OS-7075R model. It looks like a more modern, sleek version of that older model. You will love the way the chair looks and the way the chair fits when you sit in it.
- 2-Stage Zero Gravity - Zero gravity has become a staple in the massage chair industry. Originally, zero gravity alluded to a 30 degree tilt of the seat to all for a more even distribution of the body weight. Now, models like the OS-Cyber offer a second, even deeper zero gravity tilt to give you an even more comfortable positioning during your massage session.
- Chromotherapy - LED lighting on the outside of the arm rests provides a lovely blue-colored ambient light throughout a darkened room during your massage session.
- Computer Body Scan - This chair will map out the shape and size of your spine with greater accuracy than ever before, thanks to innovative and progressive new massage chair technology. What the body scan does, in it's simplest terms, is provide a massage custom delivered to your specific spinal size and shape.
- Re-Engineered Airbag Massage Technology - Thanks to innovative engineering, the Osaki OS-Cyber has airbag technology that requires less airbag cells, yet covers greater surface area of each body part. This results in less valves being used, thus less stress on the chair hardware.
- Heat Therapy - 2 heating pads are provided in the lumbar region to relax tight muscles and allow for greater therapeutic benefit to the body.
- Airbag Twist Motion - Airbags are used in simultaneous concert to provide a twisting motion of the upper and lower body. Different airbags are inflated at different times to introduce rotation to the spine while the rollers are working their magic along the spine at the same time..
- Simple, Easy-To-Use Remote Control - A large 5" display provides easy-to-read chair functions.
- 10 Pre-Set Massage Programs - There are no shortage of massage programs to offer so many options to the chair user. From programs that are designed to invigorate, relax, and everything in between, the OS-Cyber gives you no excuse whatsoever to find the right massage.
- Auto-Extend Ottoman - When you begin a massage program, the foot and calf massager will extend electronically, then retract. At the very point where the ottoman fits your legs perfectly, just push down your toes on the foot massager and the retraction will stop.
- 30 Minute Auto Timer - You can experience a massage session from 5-30 minutes.

I agree with the earlier review by Pete S. - the body scan feature, which is supposed to deliver even massage considering your body curvature, does not actually work. It is very intense in the low back and shoulder areas, while pretty weak in the neck area. Yes, you can remove the pillow and move your head all the way back to feel the rollers, but this is not a very comfortable position, considering that the rollers can actually go forward to the right place when you adjust them with the 3D button. But then the other massage areas also shift forward and rollers go even harder on the rest of your body.
My impression is that the mechanical part of the chair design is done well, because the rollers can actually move in all directions in a pretty wide range. However, the computer (or its software) is designed poorly and does not fully utilize the chair's mechanical capabilities. I wish the manufacturer offered firmware updates like lots of other devices in our home have. As a result, this very sophisticated device with good program sequences performs a pretty unproportional massage.
I am still giving it 4 stars, because it feels better than other chairs I tried, even the expensive ones like Inada Sogno. Despite the above-mentioned flaw, you can still get a pretty good massage with it at a fair price.

I should preface this by saying that while I did not purchase the chair from Dr. W., he suggested that I nonetheless post this review on his site. This to me speaks volumes for both his integrity as a retailer, and his caring as a person.
After 1 1/2 months with the chair, I guess that my chief complaint has been with the roller system. Specifically, the rollers functioned in such a way as to be inconsistent in their pressure (ok on upper back, very painful on pelvis/lower back). This happened regardless of the 3D setting. The choices were either 1) use the minimal 3D setting, in which case upper back massage was minimal at best, or 2) use normal 3D extension, whereby when the rollers approached the pelvis, 2a) lift my lower back off of the seat, or 2b) quickly reduce the 3D extension setting (of course neither option makes for a very relaxing experience).
I also was less than satisfied with the areas that the Cyber Pro would hit in the upper back. Regardless of width adjustment, the rollers seemed to not hit the rhomboids effectively.
Also, the Cyber Pro's roller neck massage function was at times almost disquieting, in that it felt as if were one to not be careful how strongly he/she "leaned into" the chair, damage to the base of the skull and/or cervical vertebrae might result.
Lastly, the foot roller system seemed to not hit the arches, but rather concentrated on the balls (and to a lesser extent, the heels) of the feet.

Where to begin? Well, if you're like me, paying ~$5k for a massage chair is a pricey decision, and you want to make sure you got your money's worth. For my wife and I, I can say that we did.
This chair does just about anything you can ask of it. Originally, I wasn't looking for a massage chair at all, I wanted to get a Intersegmental Traction table (IST)... Those tables that you lay on at the chiropractors office and get a rolling massage up and down your spine. Well, those take up a lot of room, and according to my wife, would look pretty stupid just sitting in our bedroom. So, I needed a chair that could recline 180 degrees or close to it, with a powerful rolling massage for my spine.
This chair delivers that and a lot more. We started using the chair by trying out all the preset massage programs. Relax, Stretch, Comfort, Energy, De-Stress, Deep Pressure... there is a program for you. I personally prefer Relax and Stretch, while my wife prefers Comfort. When you are in need of a serious massage, Deep Pressure does the trick. It has enough pressure to pop your back if you're out of alignment, no joke. The airbags hold you in place while the rollers and kneaders work you over. Be careful on the strongest settings, and take it easy at first, or you'll have sore muscles the next day!
What I really like about the chair though is how customizable it is. With the manual settings, you can have it massage just about any part of your body with a hard or soft massage, and everything in between. The 3D mechanism lets you get it just right and tailor it to your specific needs, which the factory preset massages don't quite do.
We've had the chair for about 2 months now with no problems. About the only things I can think of that would improve this chair would be to have the rollers extend their track under the seat like some of the new chairs have (though this has a pretty long track, it stops at the top of the buttocks) but it does have a vibration setting for the seat cushion. The last thing I wish the chair would do is to have a "program" button where it would allow you to program your own custom massage settings and save it, so you didn't have to manually go and set everything up the way you like it every time. However, I don't know any chair that has something like this. It just seems a shame that when they give you so many options to get a massage perfectly personalized to your body, that you can't save those settings somehow.
All in all, we are extremely pleased with this chair, and I can't imagine anyone not being satisfied with it.

First of all I am sure Dr. Weidner can't be beat. He advertises that you can call him and yes - he picks up and gives you expert advise!!! Awesome. He also follows up (backorder info, delivery etc.).
I received the Osaki Pro-Cyber a couple of weeks ago and must say it's great once you find your preferred settings. I am 5'8" and my girlfriend is 5'. The concern was that my girlfriend might have problems with the shoulder pillows. The good news is that she has no such problems and the chair works great for both of us.
The 2 things that need to be improved are:1. Manual (very basic), 2. The remote control should be completely backlit (hard to find your favorite massage settings in a dimmed roomed (best relaxing way to get a massage in my opinion). Other than that the quality of the chair seems very good and I expect years of massage pleasure from it. As the "Doc" put it - I am officially considered "spoiled" now.

I recently received the Osaki OS 3D PRO Cyber (like yesterday). Dr Weidner was great in terms of providing good information about the various models I was considering and I believe I purchased the correct chair for my needs.
I had previously tried a couple of Inadas including the Sogno at the relax the back store. My impression of comparing the Sogno against the Cyber is that the Sogno is more refined, but the Cyber has great value and overall great features and control for a significantly lower cost. It definitely gets the job done and in some ways better or stronger than the Sogno. However, on the Sogno there were moments… only a few… where the “touch” of the massage on my back suddenly felt almost human. I don’t get that on the Osaki. I also think the Sogno does a better job of the hip movement, which feels just a tad awkward on the Osaki.
However, that being said, I do get a very good massage with a lot of control on the Osaki. You get lots of control to basically massage the areas you want in the way you want at the intensity you want. I actually haven’t experienced many human massage therapists who can deliver on that claim.
In my opinion the Osaki is the better value and the only way I would have swayed toward the Sogno is:
1. If the price were closer to 6K
2. It came with foot rollers
3. The roller length was as long as the Osaki and the strength or intensity had as much control as the Osaki.(again Sogno is more nuanced but can’t be as aggressive when you really want it to be).
One beautiful thing about the Osaki is the length of the rollers. I’m a tallish guy at 6’1 and in the zero gravity positions I can get the rollers to come up to the back of my head and push out the 3D to do some serious lower skull massage. Btw, the 3D rocks on this and gives you a really great level of control over intensity.
The foot rollers were great but sometimes I get tired of them or my feet become too sensitive so I just turn them off. You can turn on and off vibration and the foot rollers at any time.
The controller is mostly intuitive and the programs are great, but the level of custom control is also great. It took me all of a day to understand the control system without having to read the manual.
In terms of esthetic design, I like it. It looks and makes you feel like you’re in some advanced spaceship cockpit, especially when you hit the zero G button and the chair lifts up and angles back to the first zero G position.
The heat feature is amazing and really helps me relax into the massage. I’m glad I didn’t get a chair without it. I notice I feel a bit uptight any time I sit in a massage chair which tends the make the experience less enjoyable. The moment I turn the heat on and it warms up, I just relax like a baby and suddenly it all feels really great… sort of like the feeling of a warm bath.
As long as it holds up in terms of build quality, I think I’m REALLY going to enjoy this chair for a long time. I might consider a Sogno in the future if they ever add some of the desired features I mentioned above.
Now for the negative:
I bought the Red chair expecting a brighter younger looking red, but when the chair came it actually looks darker like maroon or burgundy. Its fine, but just not what I expected so the pictures online are a little deceptive. Which is probably due to the way the camera captured the color under certain lighting conditions. However, it would be better if the wording were a bit more descriptive of the real color.
If you are buying this chair because you dream of sitting in it getting a massage listening to beautiful music and you have any sense for good sound at all… don’t buy this chair for that reason. Buy the chair for all other reasons or features other than the speakers/music feature. Its better just to turn up a decent home stereo or wear headphones than to listen to these horrible and extremely limited range speakers. I’m actually thinking about whether I could swap out the speakers somehow without doing any damage to the seat. Maybe you could listen to a talk show and it would be ok. Also, the position of the audio connection is beyond weird and dysfunctional (over your left shoulder). That being said, the chair is still definitely worthy for all the other features.
In summary, I’m happy with my purchase as long as the chair holds up and we’ll see where Sogno is in a few years and judge then whether I should upgrade. By then, these Chinese chairs may have figured out how to impart that human like touch…. who knows.
