We’ve also compiled a bunch of other need-to-know information about the Osaki brand that’ll help you to decide whether or not an Osaki massage chair is the right choice for you.
Let’s jump into it.
Who makes Osaki massage chairs?
Despite the distinctly Japanese-sounding name, Osaki is actually a US-based massage chair brand with headquarters in Texas.
Osaki is part of the larger OTA World LLC/TITAN World LLC, which encompass both the Osaki and Titan brand. They’re one of the leading distributors of massage products, including massage chairs, foot massagers, handheld massagers, and more.
They’re known for providing high-quality products at reasonable prices, and for their enormous catalog of chairs built to meet a variety of needs. They offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on all massage chairs (see their Q&A page for more information).
Where are Osaki massage chairs made?
According to eMassageChair, 90% of Osaki massage chairs are manufactured in China.
This isn’t necessarily an indication of poor quality as the vast majority of all massage chairs on the market are also made in China. Osaki only sources their chairs from top-tier factories with strict quality controls.
However, if you prefer Japanese-made massage chairs, you’ll be pleased to know that Osaki does offer a limited Made in Japan line of products which includes their Inada series, OS-JP Premium series, and Kiwami 4D-970 Japan chair.
Some of these chairs, like the Inada Dreamwave, include some Chinese-made components despite being designed and engineered in Japan.
This is fairly common practice; there is actually only one massage chair brand that is entirely designed, engineered, and manufactured in Japan: Furjiryoki. The Osaki OS-4D Pro JP Premium is a privately-labeled Fujiryoki model.
What is the price range of Osaki massage chairs?
Osaki offers a huge catalog of massage chairs, with something to fit every budget. Most of their chairs range from around $2,000 to $9,999.
There are 5 different chair lines/brands sold through the official Osaka massage chair website by their parent brand, OTA World LLC.
The Osaki Pro line is more expensive. Most of the chairs in this line are advanced models that cost around $5,000 or more. The regular Osaki line and Apex line are both more affordable, with most chairs somewhere between $1,500 and $5,000.
Titan chairs mostly cost around $2,000 - $5,000, and the Japanese chair line features their most expensive products.
What are the most popular models of Osaki massage chairs?
Alright, let’s jump into the list. Here are 12 of the most popular and best Osaki massage chairs on the market right now.
Note: For variety, we’ve also included a few Apex, Titan, and Inada models, as they’re still part of the Osaki parent company, OTA World LLC, and sold through the Osaki website.
Our top pick for the overall best Osaki massage chair goes to the OS-4000T. It’s the clear winner when you look at the value-to-performance ratio. It’s one of Osaki’s more affordable chairs but looks and feels like a premium model, which makes it fantastic value for money.
What did we like about it? Well, let’s start with the built-in body scan technology.
Osaki understands that no two user’s bodies are the same, which is why they made the OS-4000T capable of scanning the user’s body to accurately map the curvature of their back. That way, the chair can self-adjust the settings and tailor the massage to make sure it precisely hits all your sweet spots.
There are a total of 38 airbags that squeeze and knead your muscles from your head to your toes. Those in the upper-mid section have been cleverly programmed to inflate independently at different times in order to twist your body in all the right ways and create a deep, enjoyable stretch.
The airbags along the back of your legs and feet work alongside spinning rollers to provide a varied, kneading, and rolling massage.
The best part of this chair, for me, though, has to be the reflexology foot massagers. They’ve been designed to precisely target and stimulate specific acupuncture points along the soles of your feet. When you combine that with the gentle squeeze provided by the airbags, it’s pure bliss.
The OS-Pro Maestro came in at a close second place. It’s another excellent massage chair that’s without a doubt one of the best in its line. It’s a little (ok, a lot) more expensive than the OS-4000T, but you get what you pay for - this truly is a premium massage chair.
The standout feature of the Maestro is the heating system. It offers one of the most advanced massage chair, back-heating systems in the world. What makes it so special, you ask?
Well, while most massage chairs only offer lumbar heating - in other words, the heat is usually confined to a single section of your lower back - the OS-Pro Maestro heats up the rollers themselves. This means the heat hits your whole back, warming you to the core and soothing those aching muscles from your neck right the way down to your hamstrings.
Aside from that, it also features a bunch of other high-end features that take it to the next level, including the same body scan technology that makes the OS-4000T so great. Everything is automatically adjusted to your exact body shape; the ottoman scans your legs to ensure the footrest is set appropriately for your height while the chair scans your shoulders and maps the key areas of your back and neck to ensure the right amount of pressure is applied.
There are 8 preset programs to choose from, depending on what you're in the mood for. For example, if you want to release tension after a hard day at work or relax before bed so that you're ready for a good night's sleep, use the 'relax' program. The chair will then perform a more gentle massage to relieve stress and tension.
Or perhaps you're feeling a bit stiff and tight? In that case, use the 'stretch' program to stretch out and loosen up those muscles. All auto programs are designed to mimic a real ‘human’ massage experience and work your muscles as well as a masseuse.
Next up, let’s talk about the OS-Pro 4D Escape. This is another incredible, innovative model from Osaki’s Pro line of chairs.
What makes this massage chair stand out from the crowd is the space capsule cover. It’s one of the only massage chairs I’ve ever come across that has this innovative feature, and now I’ve experienced it, it’s hard to think about using anything else.
True to its name, the ‘Escape’ allows you to let go of all your stress and tension getaway to your own private relaxation heaven. Just sit down, slide down the space capsule dome over your head, recline to the Zero Gravity position, and let the chair take you on a journey of relaxation.
The chromo-therapy function triggers calming blue lights to appear on the interior of the dome, soothing you and bringing your body and mind back into balance.
And if you want to really immerse yourself in the experience, activate the aroma cartridge for some incense therapy, and play some relaxing nature sounds through the in-built speakers while you enjoy your 4D massage.
No wonder this is one of Osaki’s best-selling chairs - and it comes in at a steal too. The MSRP is $7,999 but it’s currently available through the Osaki website for just $4,999.
The OS-Pro First Class is another top-of-the-line chair from the Osaki Pro line. It offers all the features you’d expect of a premium chair in this price range - like 3D massage technology, two-step Zero Gravity recline, full-body air massage, and built-in Bluetooth speakers - plus a few features you might not expect.
One such feature is the built-in negative air ionization therapy, which is thought to help boost the levels of serotonin in your body and promote better psychological wellbeing.
It works by using an in-built air ionizer to create negative ions - odorless, tasteless, invisible molecules that occur naturally in certain environments and conditions such as at beaches, near waterfalls, and following spring thunderstorms. These negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that lead to increased serotonin, the happy chemical.
As such, the OS-Pro First Class might be a great option if you’re someone who struggles with low moods or seasonal affective disorder.
All the chairs we’ve looked at so far have been rather bulky and weighty and, as such, they need to be placed somewhere with a lot of clearance space so that they can recline fully.
That’s not a big deal if you have a lot of space to work with, but if you’re living in a smaller home or apartment where space is hard to come by, it’s better to have something more compact and portable.
In that case, we’d definitely recommend checking out the Otamic 2X Compact Chair. This chair was built to use as little space as possible. It features an ergonomic, compact design and only weighs around 115 lbs, which is almost half that of the Osaki OS-4000T.
The clever reclining mechanism means the chair glides forward as the backrest reclines, meaning it takes up less space when fully reclined. As a result, you only need to give it around 5 inches of clearance space from the wall.
But don’t let the size fool you; good things come in small packages. The designers have managed to cram in some awesome features in that compact design, including an innovative L-track rolling system, eight adjustable airbags, lumbar heating technology, acupuncture pressure calf massage, extendable footrest, Bluetooth speakers, and more.
Next up we have the Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon. This is another premium Osaki 4D L-track massage chair jam-packed with cutting-edge relaxation technology.
Most notable of this technology is the voice recognition feature, which allows you to forego the remote and control the chair just by speaking. A tiny mic is built into the speaker and programmed to recognize 9 different phrases, which you can use to adjust the massage mode.
Or, if you’d prefer not to speak, you can use the LED remote controller to manually adjust all the settings, or download the app to your smartphone and use that to operate the chair instead.
The Paragon uses heated rollers and an enhanced 4D massage technique that massages wider, more deeply, and more rhythmically than traditional rollers. You can adjust the speed, rhythm, and depth of the massage to your personal preferences.
The Galaxy Sofa Bed, available through the Osaki store, is a kind of massage bed-chair hybrid. I don’t know about you, but when I’m sitting in a massage chair, I often get so relaxed that I feel like leaning back and drifting off.
The Galaxy Sofa Bed seems to have been designed with users like me in mind. It features comfortable genuine & synthetic leather upholstery and a longer seat that you can stretch your legs out fully on and reclines fully backward like a bed.
Sit up straight with a good book and enjoy the soothing air massage on your neck, back, lumbar zone, and glutes, and then when you feel like taking a nap, just recline back and catch some beauty sleep.
Best Commercial Osaki Massage Chair
If you’re looking for an Osaki massage chair for commercial use, the Apex V2 Vending Chair is probably your best option.
It’s a great way to offer your patrons an opportunity to relax during or after their shopping session while generating a nice side-income for your business. Place it in a flight terminal, gym, spa waiting area, retail store, or any other customer-facing property and watch as it pays for itself.
The Apex V2 vending chair offers users 6 classic massage techniques including shiatsu, Swedish, tapping, and kneading. It can be operated with bills or credit card (optionally) using the bill receptor or optional card reader in the right armrest panel.
It’s designed to be as low-maintenance as possible, with very few components for easy troubleshooting, a solid steel frame for durability, and highly-durable synthetic leather upholstery that’s easy to clean.
The V2 is already highly affordable but volume discounts are also available for bulk orders if you contact Osaki/Titan directly.
Best Osaki Massage Chair With Power Lift
The Osaki OLT-A Kneading Massage Lift Chair is our top recommendation for users with mobility issues that require a little assistance to get in and out.
It’s equipped with a durable power lift powered by a high-quality, whisper-quiet german motor to make it easy to get on and off. Once you’re on, you can enjoy a wonderful kneading massage delivered on your back and legs through the 10 stationary kneading points.
There’s also a heating pad built-in to the seat cushion to soothe sore muscles in your glutes and mid-lower back, which you can turn on and off.
If you prefer a milder massage, you can attach the additional pad by velcro to soften the impact of the rollers. If you like it stronger, you can take it off.
Best Osaki Chair Made in Japan
As I mentioned earlier, most Osaki chairs are made in China, but the Osaki-JP Premium 4S is one of the handful of Osaki chairs that are made in Japan. As a result, it’s one of the most durable, well-built, and intelligently-designed models Osaki has to offer.
Osaki collaborated with professional massage therapists across Japan to create a state-of-the-art chair that takes the art of massage to new heights. It really sets the bar with its hyper-realistic massage capabilities.
The 4D technology means you can adjust the speed as well as the 3D motion of the rollers. The 2-ball massage head system will move on 3 plains (vertical, horizontal, and in and out).
To make sure the massage is as personalized for you as possible, the double-sensing body scan system starts by detecting and analyzing the contours of your spine, back, and shoulder position. It’ll then automatically optimize the depth and massage points to make sure it hits all the key areas.
Most Advanced Osaki Massage Chair
Next up, we have another Made-in-Japan model that also happens to be the most advanced (and expensive) massage chair in the entire Osaki-Titan catalog.
The Inada AI Robo sits at the forefront of massage chair technology. It's pioneered innovative new features designed to create a robotic massage that doesn't just match, but 'surpasses human hands'.
How does it do it? Well, it uses a revolutionary AI-hybrid mechanism that detects subtle differences in your muscle stiffness and body composition in real-time and uses that to adjust the massage strength in real-time.
As such, it’s able to mimic professional massage practitioner techniques by massaging stiff muscles deeply and slowly, before changing to more rhythmic motions once the muscles relax.
The three-dimensional, five-finger kneading massage feels like a real human hand as it gently holds your forearms and kneads the entire arm.
And that's not the only cutting-edge technology in this chair either. It also uses innovative 4-channel speakers with a noise reduction dome to ensure the most immersive, relaxing sound experience possible; facial recognition technology to automatically detect who the user is and personalize the settings for them as soon as they sit down, a 10.1" adjustable touch screen display, and so much more.
Honestly, it would take me forever to outline all the amazing features that this chair has to offer, so I'll leave it there, but you should definitely check it out for yourself. It needs to be seen to be believed
Best Osaki Massage SpaChair
Looking for something a little different? Check out this innovative ‘SpaChair’ from Osaki. This isn’t your typical massage chair, it’s something altogether different.
It comes in two parts: the massage seat itself and an attachable spa base.
The massage seat backrest kneads, knocks, presses, and flaps to massage your muscles, while the spa base (which includes a basin or 'spa tub' complete with drain, jet system, shower head, and even mood lighting) allows you to soak your aching feet in style while you enjoy a relaxing massage.
As I said, this isn’t a regular massage chair, and it might not be the right fit for everyone’s needs, but it’s an interesting product that’s worth checking out.
