OWAYS Wooden Massage Chair Review [Updated 2020]

Here at massageLyfe, we’re always at the forefront of massage technology. Recently we’ve come across an interesting type of massage chair. One that’s made out of wood and can rock back and forth…

Yes, I’m talking about the OWAYS wooden massage chair.

This isn’t a replacement of all-out massage chairs like Kahuna or OOTORI. Instead, it’s a cool rocking chair with massage capabilities.

This lightweight massage chair is flexible and has – surprisingly- a good amount of massage functions. It’s a great option for those looking for a massage chair with lesser footprint in the house.

Make sure to read my full review below.

Let’s begin.

3 Reasons Why You Should Buy The OWAYS Massage Rocking Chair

  1. Wide customization. You can control massages in particular areas: full back, upper back, lower back with many different types of massage techniques. It also vibrates and has heat. Kneading and tapping are most realistic and you can tell they put some serious thoughts behind the designs.
  2. Quality workmanship and wood. This chair is made up of 4 main pieces and thus makes for easy assembly. The bolts align nicely with the holes and the massage functions work very well. The chair is also very sturdy.
  3. Money-back guarantee. OWAYS offers a 12 month manufacturer warranty and a 35 day money-back guarantee. It really shows their vote of confidence in their product!

My Personal Review

  • Dimensions: 31.5 inches tall,47.2 inches long, 24.8 inches wide
  • Weight Capacity: 330 lbs

The first thing you notice about this chair is how loungy and light it looks. It’s made out of high grade wood, which is environmentally friendly. They bent the wood in many places without sacrificing durability.

Surprisingly, I enjoyed the wooden arm rests compared to the normal faux / PU leather on most massage chairs. It felt natural and zen-like to be in contact with wood.

The cushion is made from high-density rebound sponge. It’s made so that over time the cushion doesn’t deform from using it too much. The fabric is made out of linen, which is comfortable, breathable, and easy to clean.

The entire chair is chemical-free so you don’t have worry about foul odors.

This chair fits the decor of many times of rooms. Typically, massage chairs only go well in the living room but this chair has the aesthetics to go with the living room, the bedroom, or even the study room.

If you’re anything like me, who can’t sit still for an hour, this chair has the capability to rock back and forth.

One thing I really liked is the inclusion of anti-slip mats that are located on the back of the feet on each side. These prevent the chair from slipping and causing damage to the person and the floor!

There are 3 kneading levels, 3 tapping levels controlled by 8 massage rollers in the back and neck area. There are 7 high-frequency vibration motors in the seat. The vibration massage is actually strong and not a small tingle like a phone vibrating.

The remote control is very sleek and modern. We’ve seen our share of massage remote controls and it usually looks outdated so we were surprised when we how cool and thin this remote was.

I like that the installation / assembly is really easy. It comes in a single box and has easy-to-read instructions. It takes about 8 screws to tighten and 4 main pieces to put together.

The massage on this chair is unexpectedly strong so make sure you have a towel or two to dampen it.

If you’d like a warranty certificate, make sure to email the company. It should look someone like this:
