Inada Sogno Massage Chair
There has been this whole different breed of massage recliners that look and feel a lot like high-quality and high-priced executive chairs.
Sort of massage chairs that we often notice in the room of a big company’s CEO or Director.
Well, I’m a fan of this type of massage chair because it adds a certain bourgeois touch to the whole massaging experience and secondly because it saves money and space to have one piece of furniture for two different tasks.
This massage chair comes forth as a massage chair that covers the maximum human body real estate coverage massage recliner. That is, this chair covers more areas of your body than any other massage chair would.
Let us have a look at the pros and cons of this product.
What we liked
- 1,200 Square Inches Massage Coverage
- Undulating Human-Like Massage with 8 Motions
- Different Types of Body Stretching
- Youth Session – Specially Designed for Youth
What We didn't like
- Back Massage Rollers Are Not Strong Enough
- Lousy Material
Things to Consider While Choosing a Good Massage Chair
How about I tell you what you’re thinking?
You’re thinking that I’ve told you about 10 massage chairs, but I haven’t told you which one is the best and you still do not know the telltale qualities of a massage chair.
So how to pick one out of the top 10 massage recliners on Amazon?
Well, For your ease and satisfaction, here is a complete massage recliner buying guide. If you want to know what you should look for while buying massage recliners, just read these most important qualities and get one that suits best your pocket and your requirements.
Know Your Requirements
Alright, This is the most important aspect of buying a massage recliner. You should know your requirements and why you need a massage recliner.
- Bob is 45 – he needs a massage recliner because he has some problem with his spine and his physicist asked him to get one.
- Lynda is 40 – she needs a massage recliner because she gets tired after a busy day and she needs to relax, get her nerves rid of the stress, and reclaim her body.
- Josh is 18 – he loves Shiatsu chair massage after a few hectic hours of soccer and workout, so he needs a massage recliner, but he wants one that will go easy on him.
So, who are you? Perhaps you do not even need a massage chair and a shiatsu massage cushion with basic features would suffice in your case.
You need to know your exact expectations from a massage recliner and then pick one that suits your needs.
Know Your Budget
Well, here comes the disappointment. We cannot simply buy anything that we want. This ain’t a candy shop and we aren’t kids.
So, It is perfectly possible that you find a massage chair and you fell in love at first sight, but when you look at that price tag, you learn that it is way beyond your budget.
Frankly speaking, we have all types of massage chairs in this review and while some of them are less than $500, there are those which cost more than $2,000.
So, you need to know that you can bring home one of the best massage chairs any day, but it will not be one that you lost your heart to.
Most probably, it’ll be the one that you can afford. The good news? There are many that you can afford and if you don’t even afford the cheapest one – hey, there are always those shiatsu chair massage cushions that you can use.
Follow the Brand
When a business starts selling well, it is called a successful business. When a business gets acknowledged only for its name or logo, it becomes a brand.
Follow the brand. You will find many businesses selling good-quality massage chairs, you will find good reviews on their listing, but you are always reluctant to buy because you do not know them.
Why? Because, as much money as they have been making, they are not recognizable brands. And if they are not recognizable, it means that irrespective of a good review, there is an amount of risk.
Follow the Reviews
The number is the key here. Let me tell you a dirty secret about selling on websites like Amazon or eBay etc.
They are rife with Asian sellers and brands. I do not hold anything against them, but there is literally nothing that you can do if the product fails after the limited time protected by Amazon.
So, how to know that a product is legit? Follow these rules:
- Firstly, check the number of reviews the product has.
- Secondly, check how many of them are positive reviews.
- Thirdly and lastly, check as to how many reviews were given with Asian names and how many were given with American/European names.
If a product has many reviews – it means it attracted a lot of customers and it might be a good one. They might be a legit company with a marketing campaign that raked in so many sales.
If a product’s reviews are 90% positive, it means that the ratio of risk is only 10%. However, this is conditioned by the third and last point.
If all those positive ratings are from Asian names, beware that those are highly likely to be fake reviews from that Asian Company’s Asian employees.
However, if most or all of the reviews are made with American/European names, then it means that the product is legit and you may buy it.
Attention to Details
Whether these are the bullet points explaining the qualities of the product or the reviews by customers, always look for real, authentic, and verifiable statistics and facts.
Words like “best”, “awesome” and similar other words and expressions are no longer relevant. You are going to buy a product that has a lot to do with technical details.
If your main problem area is your feet and a “very good” and “durable” massage chair does not offer full body massage, it is a waste of money to buy it.
So read the bullet points, product description, and reviews to find out material details about the product.
I think you would agree:
All of us know what we want from a massage machine, but we do not know how a massage recline chair can address those issues.
So, if you have a problem with your feet or shin or calves and you end up buying a massage chair that is not a full body massage chair, you will be really disappointed.
Because most of the massage chairs ignore the feet area. So, do proper research about different equipment used in different massage chairs. For example, rail is the metal rail that is used to help rollers run from the top of the back to the end of it.
Rollers are plastic wheel-shaped things that go up and down, in different movements, and provide you a back massage.
Likewise, air compression bags are used from top to bottom to give you much better blood flow. And for the same purpose, the heating pads are used in the back and feet areas.
Then comes vibration; this is mostly used in the seat so as to address the problems with the pelvic area.
In very small letters, perhaps at some inconspicuous place, these cunning manufacturers mention the warranty. You need to fetter through the entire page to find out whether there is a warranty or not, and if there is a warranty, is it only for a year or more.
