We put together this Ogawa Refresh Massage Chair Instructional video to help shoppers get more familiar with the Refresh, and walk through the features of the chair and remote. We show people how to turn the chair on and off, as well as pause the massage, and go into Zero Gravity. We also look at all the Manual and Automatic programs.


This is the Ogawa Refresh Operation Video. This is the remote to used to operate the Ogawa Refresh massage chair. We look over the Basic Buttons. The red button at the top left is the power button. This will turn the chair on and off. The green clock button adds time to your massage. Each time you press the button it will add 5 minutes to your massage. The white pause button pauses and un-pauses the massage. Now we look over the Automatic massage programs. There are 4 Automatic Programs, Relax, Relief, Therapy, and Full Air. Note that before an auto program begins there will be a 1 minute back scan. Relax is designed to provide a mild massage that is great for deep relaxation. Relief is a moderate strength massage that combines massage techniques. Therapy is a stretching massage in the reclined position. Full Air turns on a full body air compression massage. The LED butting turns the chromotherapy lights on and off. You can cycle through the Red, Green, and Blue colors. The M button turns on the Manual Massage.
