No - OSIM do not stock Japanese made massage chairs. Universally known as the highest grade massage chairs, Japanese made massage chairs can only be found at Relax for Life.

What is the Lifespan of OSIM Massage Chairs vs Relax for Life?

Lifespan is tricky as it really comes down to how well you take care of your massage chair and the materials used in manufacturing! However, Relax for Life relies on best brands, technology, and best massage chairs in general, that will last up to 20 years with the right care. Our Japanese brand massage chairs from OHCO & Fujiiryoki are offered with 5 year comprehensive in-home warranty.  Actually, Fujiiryoki chairs from 20 years ago are recently being traded in for the newest models (as customers just want the latest technology or a “change”)  and when our team collect, these 20+ year old chairs are still looking as if they were brand new & operating as such too!  As you would expect from a company that’s been doing it since 1954!!
