What is Osaki?
Osaki is an established Japanese massage product company. They have released several famous massage chairs including the Osaki 1000, 3000, 4000, 6000, 7200h, and Dreamer. The main reason Osaki stood out to us was that they prioritize relaxing the body and supporting active lifestyles. This motto is clear when you look at the design and functionality of their chairs.
One of the best things that Osaki has been able to do is keep up with the times. Through our review guide, you will see that technologically, Osaki continues to be innovative. This can be seen in their airbags, zero gravity functionality, and the implementation of deluxe programs. By producing top-quality massage chairs, Osaki has been able to widen its customer base to pro athletes, laborers, office workers to stay-at-home moms.
Osaki Massage Chair Reviews
1. OS-4000T Massage Chair with Air Massage Technology
The Osaki OS-4000T is one of the best technological massage chairs available. What makes it stand out? We can begin with the automatic recline that places your body in an ergonomic position. By doing so, you’re placed in a position that immediately lifts the pressure off of your muscles. The chair also uses air massage technology that functions with 6 auto-programs and 6 different massaging styles.
Your body is analyzed by a computer body scanning system that conforms to your needs. With 5 adjustable intensity and speed levels, you can choose how fast your muscles are massaged and with how much force. This is great for when you are feeling extra sore on some days and not so much on others.
As you use this massage chair you will notice that Osaki included hip, shoulder, and lumbar squeezing. This is extremely beneficial for people nursing injuries as it provides a soothing and gentle squeeze for those aching areas.
The most interesting move by Osaki was reducing the amount of airbags in the OS-4000T. Sounds bad, doesn’t it? Not exactly, by reducing the amount of airbags in their air massage technology, Osaki was able to increase the surface and volume area of the massage. This increases the chairs mechanical durability ensuring that will last a lot longer than its competition.
2. OS 4D-Pro JP Premium Kiwami Mecha Massage Chair
Osaki manufactured this massage chair with top-quality Japanese materials that are made by Fujiyroki, one of the premium massage chair producers in Japan. It features advanced aesthetics with custom massage techniques, air massage technology, and body navigation scanning.
At the heart of the Osaki OS 4D Massage Chair is one of Osaki’s newest and most innovative massage chair technologies. Osaki calls it Kiwami Mecha and it is designed to provide customers with personalized control over the roller system.
The 4D Kneading System emphasizes adjustable control over the width, speed, and strength of rollers. What differentiates it from other systems is that it gets into hard-to-reach points on your body, like the upper neck or shoulder blades. Once it targets those areas, Osaki programmed a deep tissue massage to reduce tension within those muscles.
Osaki really emphasized full control as they provided 5 auto preset programs (Whole Body, Shoulder & Waist Rejuvenation; and Whole Body Stretch & Relax) and then created stronger versions of those techniques when you enter the Kiwami Mecha mode. The mode is further complemented with Osaki’s 44 airbags that are strategically spread out. Ultimately, Osaki wanted to take the intricate details of a professional massage and put them into a massage chair.
3. OS-6000 Massage Chair
The OS-6000 is one of the newer massage chairs from Osaki. Its main computer scanning design features an s-track rolling technology that provides steady massage pressure all throughout your back. This technology is what the foundation of the OS-6000 is built on and all other features are incorporated to support its functionality.
When comparing the OS-6000 to traditional massage chairs there is one big difference. Traditional chairs implement a linear vertical motion that stops equal pressure from being applied to the upper and lower back. However, the OS-6000 provides massage rollers to focus in on the lumbar, shoulder and neck areas and apply the equal distribution of pressure to fit your body’s curvatures.
Since Osaki placed so much emphasis on their roller systems, we had to check them out. The most interesting thing about the twin rollers is that they are designed to mimic and simulate the touch and feel of real fingers and thumbs. This felt extremely soothing with the pads and air pillow in the head and neck region. Your upper body feels completed supported while your lower body is being pampered with a foot and calf massage and stretch mode that feature inflating airbags.
4. OS-3D Pro Dreamer Massage Chair
From its name, you would think that the best part of the OS-3D Pro Dreamer would be to help you fall asleep. Although it does help you fall asleep quicker, that isn’t the aspect which stood out the most to us. Instead, it was the chairs ability to adjust and accommodate fast-paced lifestyles. To do this, Osaki included shiatsu, clapping, tapping, rolling, vibration, and kneading massage functions that work together to provide therapeutic relief to your entire body.
The technology behind the deeper massaging ability of the Pro Dreamer is credited to the 3D Rollers. They are designed to provide a deeper and wider massage in comparison to regular massage rollers. Osaki also designed the 3D technology of the Pro Dreamer to massage the bodies acupuncture points with greater depth and precision.
Osaki’s precision in targeting specific points on the body is what allows the Pro Dreamer to be versatile in its massaging. Users can decide between “point” massaging and “zone” massaging techniques. The point massage allows you to massage a specific point of the body. On the other hand, the zone massage stops the 3D rollers on a certain area and massages the area within a 3.3” inch zone. Combing this feature with adjustable intensity gives users full control over the strength and speed of the massage.
5. OS-7200H Massage Recliner Chair
The executive OS-7200H massage chair is constructed with an intelligent design through an abundance of features. However, the main focus of the Osaki OS-7200H is relaxing the shoulder, lumbar, and neck areas. This is accomplished by adjusting to your body curvatures and Thai style massaging, stretching, and heating of the upper body. By focusing on massaging and heating sensitive areas, Osaki attempts to specialize the OS-7200H for upper body healing. The question then becomes, were they able to accomplish this?
In our opinion, yes, Osaki was able to combine their heating and massaging with the s-track massage robot to detect the entire body and makes appropriate adjustments. The 13 motor system and 6 auto-programs provided the technology needed to properly adjust to different body sizes.
Osaki also separates the focus of the massage into two sections the upper body and lower body. What pushes the 7200H massage chair into an elite group is its ability to be well-rounded. Impressively, Osaki was able to reduce tension in critical upper body areas without compromising on the lower body support and massage. An automatic massager thoroughly gets to the calves, thigh, feet, and buttock areas. This can be seen through the quad roller, pelvis massage, and automatic leg scanning. Lastly, Osaki included elite features such as built-in speakers, chrome therapy, and multi-layered padding.
6. Classic OS-4000 Cream Colored Massage Chair
The OS-4000 is one of the classic Osaki massage chairs that continue to remain popular over time. It has the fundamental features that have made Osaki successful in many of their newer models. Osaki focused on making components fit, including solid design, and incorporating zero gravy reclining into the OS-4000.
Ergonomic design is an important factor behind the OS-4000 as it contours to an assortment of spine curvatures and shapes. This technology is combined with a scanning system that analyzes the entire body which allows massage rollers to align themselves with the curves of the back.
One of our favorite features was the 2 heating pads in the lower lumbar area. The chair includes 1 heating pad on each side and they are designed to address any lower back pains you may have.
The chairs 6 massaging methods include diverse options and feature popular massaging techniques such as Swedish and Shiatsu massages. It also gives users 3 width adjustability options and 5 different intensity and speed levels. Lastly, the airbag massage includes squeezing features for the hips and lumbar area, as well an airbag massage for the shoulders.
7. OS-1000 Intelligent Deluxe Massage Chair
The OS-1000 is one of the smallest massage chairs from Osaki. Its design is more compact and it doesn’t have a large LCD screen to operate the chair. Instead, there is a smaller/narrower remote control that is hooked onto the arm of the chair. In comparison to the OS-4000 or OS-6000, the OS-1000 works much better for smaller spaces and rooms. This can be extremely beneficial for people living in condos or apartments.
What stood out the most with the OS-1000 was the stroke length of its massaging feature. It has the ability to reach from your neck down to your tailbone because of its 29” inch stroke. Osaki built around this component by adding neck massaging, increasing lower back range, and implementing an intelligent 4-roller system.
The identity of the OS-1000 is definitely based off two main principles. The first being compact sizing to save space and look modern in design. And the second is creating a full body massage experience that includes increased range, intensity, and recline. The only downside is the 15 minute reset and lack of heating.
8. OS 3D Evolved Pro Cyber Massage Chair
The biggest developments with the 3D Pro Cyber chair involved small improvements. One of the newest adjustments was the air bag placement. Osaki turned their attention to improving the arm and hand massaging features as they include 8 of the 36 total airbags. The mechanical improvements including adding durable spandex in the bottom arm portion of the massager.
You may be wondering, what does this do?
By lining the bottom area with small rubber bumps, Osaki was able to strengthen the senses, while the hands and forearm areas felt the compression from top to bottom. The leg massaging of the chair also got an upgrade. This includes the reclining of the backrest into a zero gravity position with the combination of a rising leg rest and foot extension. Lastly, airbags running along the back and sides of the feet and legs inflate. This leads to a compression massage which can be paired with kneading massage spin rollers for the bottom of your feet.
Overall, the Pro Cyber features high-end quality. However, its identity as a product rests on improving little features, which in Osaki’s eyes, would make a big difference.
9. Galaxy Kuma Massage Chair
Functionality for the Galaxy Kuma is divided into two sections. The first is the s-track massage function that focuses on the body. And the second is the L-track massage function that focuses on the buttocks and hips. Both these roller tracks are designed for full extension coverage and the combination is implemented for full body massaging.
The L-track rollers follow the full extension from the neck to the buttocks. The S-track complements this functionality by providing the rollers with greater massaging consistency in the lumbar and upper (shoulder & neck) areas. Dual coverage from the S-track and L-track puts the body in a position that enables each spinal disk to individually decompress and separate. This allows the disc tissue to properly absorb nutrients while reducing the overall pressure on the spine.
The intensity of the massage varies quite a bit. Sometimes you will get an extremely strong massage and other times it feels a bit weak. This can be an annoying as you are constantly re-adjusting the massage intensity. However, one component that Osaki did well on with the Galaxy Kuma is their range of massage coverage. Each sectional component was properly designed to provide full ranging massages. Pressure bags and rollers extend their range from the arms, calves, and shoulder regions.
10. TP-8500 Massage Chair
The inspiration for the Osaki TP-8500 came from technology developed by NASA. Osaki turned to zero-gravity positioning to combine weightlessness and massaging.
How did they do this?
They focused on back alignment to find the optimal point of comfort. The positioning of the back relative to the thigh creates the ideal seating angles and support. Osaki took this a step further by combing the massage features in the TP-8500 to reach its full potential when in a zero gravity position. We found that this increases the intensity of the massage, which some users may like and others may not. One significant benefit we found is that it significantly reduces the vertical stress on your spine. We also found studies that showed that when your legs are elevated above the heart, your body receives better circulation. Along with their NASA technology, Osaki included a sleek designed slim remote control, 5 pre-set programs, and full range of motion in the foot massage.
Overall, the sleekness and slim design of this chair definitely make it look futuristic. It is finished with a complete black look which adds to its modern aesthetic.
Osaki OS-4D Pro Massage Chair
Final Thoughts – Wrapping it up and Our Pick!
Noticeably, the market for massage chairs has become saturated with many different types of chairs (slimmer massage chairs, unorthodox designs etc.). This makes finding the best massage chair for your needs a bit more challenging. That is why going back to trusted brands like Osaki gives you reliability and trust when you make a big purchase.
Although all these chairs are great options, our favorite was the Osaki OS-4000T. It provides modern features with next generation technology to deliver a powerfully soothing massage. Osaki took all the great features of their OS-4000 and made small improvements to create a great updated version.
However, readers should note that this chair isn’t perfect for every situation. You should look through all the options and then decide which chair best suits your needs.
Lastly, we see many lower-quality electric massage chairs face installation, troubleshooting, and beeping issues. Although these issues can be solved, the brands that sell these chairs have poor customer service. This is one of the main reasons we believe in Osaki massage chairs, the product, and the customer service fulfill the complete package.
