Close your eyes and imagine it, the massage therapist working with care and precision as he or she methodically loosens the aches and tensions and knots troubling your body, from your neck and shoulders all the way down to your calves. Your neck is grasped firmly and pressure is applied to melt away stress by stretching and opening the vertebrae, granting your spine the alignment it craves. Your tense shoulder blades loosen as the therapist works the stress from your arms, moving down your lower back to help relax the piriformis muscles covering your sciatic nerve. The tension in your upper legs and hamstrings recedes as the therapist's fingers knead out knots before turning to your calves. You can feel the tension drain from your muscles as they are plied with deft and gentle yet firm hands.

Inada shows off its 50 years of experience in massage chair design with its zero gravity chair, Duet, featuring a duet of two motors and two sets of rollers for optimal upper and lower body support simultaneously. Allowing for long, continuous strokes and asymmetrical massage, the Duet reclines to the zero gravity position, which helps to distribute evenly the stress of gravity felt by the body. The innovative eight-axis intelligent massage system, featuring a stroke length of approximately 75 cm (approx. 30"), thoroughly treats your neck, shoulders, back and buttocks, while the annular deep massage mechanism (65 cm (26") stroke length) grips your hamstrings and calves for powerful and soothing shiatsu treatment; this is further enhanced by the heated air massage applied to the arms. Finally, the Duet features a number of massages designed to address a range of issues; among these are its morning and night programs – which aggregate blood toward the heart and circulate it to the extremities respectively – and the Duet's unique capacity to conduct massages that favour the left or right side of the body depending on the user's needs.
