Osaki OS-3D Pro Dreamer vs. Inada Sogno Dreamwave

Osaki OS-3D Pro Dreamer vs. Inada Sogno Dreamwave Massage Chair Comparison

How They Look

Aesthetically at first glance, both chairs look alike, but when you take a closer look you will see some comparable differences. The Osaki Dreamer stands taller than the Inada Dreamwave. The Dreamwave has more of an oval shape to it. Both chairs have cushioned seat, hip, and shoulder pads. You will notice the Dreamwave offers security to the forearm with a brace that covers you 360 degrees. The Osaki Dreamer has a hood that offers a built-in speaker system for music. The remote for the Dreamer has an LCD screen and is attached to the armrest of the chair. The Dreamwave has a jacket on the side of the chair to store their remote control. The Dreamer has two blue LED lights toward the rear of the chair and has wood grain finish paneling on both sides. Finally, the Dreamer comes in four colors, black, charcoal, brown and cream, while the Inada Dreamwave comes in five colors cream, red, dark brown, black and what they call trublack.


Massage Roller Technology

Both models offer dynamic 3D massage therapy technology. But how they are implemented is different. Massage rollers generally go up and down the back, and will protrude outward for a deep tissue massage. In the Dreamer, the massage rollers protrude on their own while in the Dreamwave the rollers are pushed forward by the airbag technology in the chair. The Dreamwave boasts over 100 airbags located throughout the massage chair while the Dreamer has 48, which is still more than most massage chairs.

Dreamwave Technology

A cool piece of technology the makers of the Dreamwave came up with is the figure-8 motion to its chair. The seat of the chair moves from side-to-side and up-and-down to set an inert motion into your lower back and pelvis. With the use of airbags in the thigh area the massage works your entire core. The Osaki uses the standard airbag compression seat massage.

Neck & Head Massage

The Inada Sogno Dreamwave has a unique feature called the “Cervical Traction Device” headpiece. With it the airbags massage the neck, lower part of your head, and the tops of your shoulders. The Osaki OS-3D Dreamer begins the massage at the lower part of the neck and shoulders with two large airbags giving you their full body airbag compression massage.

Mapping Out Your Body

The Dreamer focuses their massage on the neck and back, which has over 100 acupoints. Using acupressure to provide relief the massage rollers target the points to help increase circulation and relieve pain. In the Dreamwave, the focus is on the shiatsu points of the human body. These points are not the same for everyone and are determined by your body type. So, before each massage an infrared sensor in the massage chair will automatically detect these points on you. In the Osaki Dreamer, they offer a body scan that is more basic to map out the curves of your body and the height of your shoulders to provide the massage to you.

Lower Back Heat Therapy

Heat therapy has become a huge advancement in massage chair technology and both these massage chairs offer it. The heat therapy in the Inada uses the infrared technology to warm up the lumbar and seat areas and the Osaki Dreamer has two heating pads located in the lumbar area.

Reclined Position

The Osaki OS-3D Dreamer has two-staged zero gravity technology for you to choose which reclined position best works with your body. The Dreamwave does not offer a zero gravity position, but you can relax in a reclined position. One drawback in the Dreamer is the chair in the zero gravity position will not give you an optimum arm and hand massage. In the Dreamwave, the armrests recline with the chair, leaving you always in the best possible position for your arm massage.

Arms, Shoulders & Back

The Inada Sogno Dreamwave uses airbags for compression massage to the upper arms and biceps. The Dreamer uses its airbags to compress the outer part of the shoulders and to intentionally hold your body in place, so the massage rollers can give you a deep tissue back massage. Both chairs have forearm airbags, but in the Dreamwave there are airbags surrounding the entire forearm for a more well-rounded massage.

Mechanical Foot Rollers

The Osaki Dreamer offers a great foot massage with the mechanical foot massage rollers that work on the soles of your feet by providing a reflexology massage. The Inada Dreamwave has a rubber plate with shiatsu balls under the soles of your feet which are pressed up against your soles by airbags.

MP3 Capability

A fun technological breakthrough the Osaki Dreamer offers will have you moving to the beat of your favorite tunes. The massage chair can actually vibrate to the beat of the music you are playing through the auxiliary connector. The Dreamwave does have a connector for your mp3 player or smartphone along with a jacket you can store the device in.

Auto Programs

The Inada Sogno Dreamwave offers 16 pre-programmed massage sessions which are by far the most of any massage chair on the market. The Dreamer has 8.


Both massage chair makers offer great coverage for products. The Dreamwave has a 3-year parts & labor warranty while the Osaki Dreamer has a 3-year warranty where you get in-home service at no cost to you for your first year. The second year covers parts replacement only, and in the third year the framework is the only thing covered.


With both high-end massage chairs, you will get the massage you expect. The Osaki OS-3D Pro Dreamer provides excellent deep tissue compression massage at a better cost to you $5295 (Normally $6295) after the $1000 instant savings you receive when you add the dreamer to your cart. The Inada Sogno Dreamwave offers you a multitude of massage options but will float you $8499.
