Daiwa Supreme Hybrid Review
by Massage Chair Expert on Jun 08, 2022
When the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid massage chair was introduced, I was skeptical. A massage chair featuring a flexible roller track and two separate roller mechanisms? That is just crazy talk, but here we are. I finally got my hands one to test drive for a few days, so here is my Daiwa Supreme Hybrid Review; this massage chair is genuinely in a league of its own.
The Daiwa Supreme Hybrid feels really solid and very refined. If I had to compare this massage chair with a car, it would have to be a Rolls Royce Phantom.
The chair will slide forward and recline as I power up the Supreme Hybrid. From there, the ottoman extends outward and then retracts. In most chairs, you have to push out with your feet to stop the ottoman in the right spot, but through some black magic, it stopped on its own right in the perfect place.
Once your body is situated, the chair will perform a body scan with BOTH top and lower rollers locating all the key points for a massage and the basic structure of your body. The body scan was perfect, and the massage was always consistent with both rollers.
Now that we are kicked back and getting a massage, let's dive into the unique features that made the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid review truly fun to do.
Just a heads up, this review is longer than any other I have done because there is a lot to cover.
The Daiwa Supreme Hybrid introduces industry first innovations to the massage chair world. Let's take a look at the unique features.
Is the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid an L-Track? Or an S-Track?
Daiwa's new HybriFlex flexible massage track has the benefits of both an S-Track, and an L-Track. With an L-Track massage chair, you are in an "L" shaped position, and the seat and backrest stay at the same "90" degree angle. However, the seat angle and backrest angle can change with an S-Track, allowing for a better stretch program and zero gravity position.
Now imagine if you could make a massage chair that has the benefits of both systems? Well, that is where Daiwa has changed the game. The Supreme Hybrid's track is 49" long and goes from the base of the neck, down your back, and wraps underneath the glutes. In addition, the track is flexible, so the chair does not have to stay in a fixed position. So now you have the benefits of both.
3D MultiStroke 6-Roller System
The Daiwa pushes the technology even further with the industry's first (and only at the time of writing) 6 roller system. The top roller is a dual-style roller and does a great job from the neck to the top of your lower back. The bottom roller is a quad-style roller that massages from your lower back, underneath your glutes, and down to the back of your thighs.
When you sit in a massage chair, the rollers act like a masseuse's hands. Now imagine getting a massage by two masseuses at the same time. I was not mentally prepared for it at the time, but it will be hard to go back to a regular massage chair.
The dual rollers allow the Supreme Hybrid to do things that other massage chairs cannot. For instance, with the neck massage, the roller would massage my trapezius muscles and then roll upwards along my spine to the base of my skull, which felt amazing. While this was happening, I was getting a glute massage with the other roller.
Another fantastic massage was during the Royal Treatment program. The top rollers rolled down and locked in at the top of my hips in combination with the airbags. While I was locked into place, I was at the mercy of the quad rollers underneath my glutes. It was one of the best things I have ever felt on a massage chair, and the stretching was absolutely incredible.
The massage rollers feature 3D technology that allows the rollers to go in and out for a deeper or lighter massage. One thing to note is that the massage rollers are super smooth. If the glute massage is still too intense, there is an extra pad you can put down. If you want a more intense back massage, there are multiple pads you can flip back.
While the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid Massage Chair has incredible new features, it is also equipped with many staple features you would expect in a massage chair.
While testing the massage chair for my Daiwa Supreme Hybrid Review, I used most of the programs. There are 36 to choose from, and if I wrote up my thoughts on all of them, we would be here for a long time. Suffice it to say, you will not have any issue finding the right programs for you and your needs.
I will point out that the stretching programs are exceptional, and there are multiple programs to choose from. There are full-body programs and even targeted programs that focus on specific areas. The programs utilize Kneading, Tapping, Knocking, Shiatsu, 3D Shiatsu, and Sync massage techniques.
You can choose 10, 20, or 30 minutes on the programs, and even during the program, you can select Gentle, Soothing, or Vigorous options. In addition, there are 7 speed and widths adjustments, 5 air and 3D strength adjustments, and 3 intensities for your feet to choose from.
Air Compression Massage
There are still areas of the body that the massage rollers cannot massage, and that is where the air compression massage comes into play. There are 50 airbags located at the shoulders, hands, forearms, upper forearms, waist, calves, the back of your calves, and feet.
The compression massage is well done, smooth, and very quiet. The material over the airbags is textured on the arm massage and does a good job keeping your arms in place without them sliding out. There are 3 sections of airbags inside the armrests, and they alternate inflating and deflating, which I enjoyed. For instance, the hand airbags would compress, then the forearms, and then the upper forearms alternating between each.
While standard in the industry, the calf compression massage surprised me. The calf section slides up to the knees and then back down to the calves. So not only does it have that sliding motion, but it also provides a knee massage.
You have independent control over which region of airbags with 5 intensity settings to choose from.
Reflexology Foot Massage
The foot massage on the Supreme Hybrid is relaxing. There are rollers on the bottom, and the airbags hold your feet in place and push down for a deeper massage. In addition, there are nodes on the back of the Achilles heel also to keep your feet in place and are not overbearing like some other massage chairs. I like a light foot massage, but if you want a deeper massager, there is padding you can remove.
Zero Gravity Massage
The zero gravity recline is a personal must have with any massage chair. It helps keep your body in place to allow the massage rollers to hit the right spot and relax you by reducing compression from your spine. The first position puts you in a standard zero gravity position, and you can go back even further with the second position.
During my Daiwa Supreme Hybrid Review, I definingly used the heat. The heating pads are located in the lumbar and legs. There are 3 settings to choose from, and I found the lightest setting to be perfect for me. However, the highest setting gets pretty warm, and I found myself having to turn it back down.
While using the touchscreen tablet for my Daiwa Hybrid Supreme Review, I found it incredibly easy to use. It is also the best GUI (Graphical User Interface) on a massage chair that I have seen. Even when choosing a massage program, there is a detailed explanation of each program and what they do. With most other massage chairs, you have to look in the manual and hope they explain it.
The Daiwa Supreme Hybrid has quick control on the armrest that allows you to access some of the standard features. The rotary dial allows you to adjust the intensity of the massage on the fly. Pressing down on the button will enable you to switch between programs. In addition, you can fine-tune the position of the massage chair with adjustments for reclining and adjusting the ottoman. You also easily switch to a zero gravity position or cycle the heat therapy between your back and knees.

That really comes down to what you can afford and personal preference. If you can afford the Rolls Royce pricing and are looking for the best massage experience, then yes, it is absolutely worth it.
