INADA Massage Chair

The INADA Massage Chair is the only shiatsu massage chair that uses a state-of-the-art infrared technology to scan your body, detect pressure points and give you customised massage programs. With the infrared pressure point detection technology, the INADA Massage Chair became the best-selling luxury shiatsu massage chair in Japan. The massage chair was designed by shiatsu and massage therapy professionals to give you the benefits of traditional Japanese acupressure massage everyday, at your convenience, in your home or office. The massage chair can help you take command of your health by aiding in the release of disease-causing stress, enhancing the healing effects of sleep and relieving job-related fatigue. The INADA Chair is sold as a "Medical Massage Chair" in Japan. It was approved by the Japanese government in 1998 for use in non-clinical massage & acupressure therapy and is marketed for home-therapeutic medical purposes in Japan.

The INADA Massage Chair is the synergy of Eastern medical wisdom and modern technology.

The ultimate goal of massage is to enhance the body's natural healing ability by releasing stress and promoting circulation. According to Eastern medicine, the key to good health is maintaining a balance between the yin and yang elements in the body, including the relationships between the upper and lower body, left and right, and front and back. The body has more than 350 pressure points aligned with the internal organs along the meridians. Stimulation of specific pressure points through kneading, tapping or pressing can energise the internal organs, helping in some cases to slow or possibly prevent the onset of disease. The INADA Massage Chair is the only massage chair that relies on the techniques and knowledge of professional massage and shiatsu therapists.

Mr Nichimu Inada's philosophy is to see massage chairs developed to the highest technology and the greatest benefit to people's health and well being. Mr Inada's hopes are for every home worldwide to have an Inada massage chair.
