“My feet are killing me” is one of the most common complaints by older people and those who are always on their feet. Foot pain can be caused by many things such as diabetic neuropathy, plantar fasciitis, and even wearing the wrong type of shoes.
For those people who are having this problem, a good massage equipment becomes their best friend. It is important that in choosing one, it must be proven and must have the features and can perform the functions that you need.
Below are the reviews of the 5 best-selling foot massage tools:
This company is famous in the wellness industry and their best-selling products include air purifiers, blood pressure monitors, and even sound spa clocks. And when it comes to massage tools, the FMS-270H is a favorite among the foot massagers with heat.
It has a total of 6 heads, 3 on each side, and each head has 3 nodes. This shiatsu foot massager can perform deep kneading which is very satisfying especially if you have been on your feet all day and you are experiencing all sorts of pain and discomfort. Additionally, you can turn on the heating function which can help in circulation.
Some users also noted that you can just step on top of the machine without switching it on and the nodes can give a very relaxing feel.
It is very easy to operate as it only has one button and you only need your toes to control it. Press once and the heads start to rotate, press it again and the heat is activated, and press it the 3rd time, it shuts down.
It is actually pretty straight forward and if there is a specific area you want to concentrate, you just have to adjust the position and angle of your feet.
This is another amazing product that we highly recommend. It has a very sleek appeal and weighs only at 12 pounds and you can store it even under your sofa or bed.
At first look, you will already see the big difference from the first one above. Your entire foot will be engulfed by the machine and it works on both the bottom and top of your foot with kneading and vibration. The rollers are located at the bottom, but you will still feel pressure at the top.
This can also perform shiatsu but unlike the HoMedics massager, it produces hot air which I think is more relaxing than having your skin directly touch the hot panels. Retaining the hot air is also the main reason for the enclosed design.
You will notice that there are 5 buttons on the top and these are for the different functions. This also means that you can use the different features independently like if you prefer the heat or not. For safety, the heat function automatically shuts off after minutes of operation.
This is another great brand when it comes to this type of tools and they are actually famous for the Human Touch iJoy series.
This warming foot massager is probably the most appealing as it is like a combination of UGG boots and the uComfy model above. But the downside is it does not perform shiatsu, only vibration. You can set it at high or low and you can independently turn on the heat if the need calls for it. Also, customers say that it is more like warmth and not the same from heating pads.
The material both the inside and the outside are soft and it even has a shearling detail. It comes in a couple of color combinations and it fits up to size 11 for men or 12 for women.
This is perfect for those who are suffering from arthritis, poor circulation, or those who gets cold feet all the time. It is also very light at only 4 pounds so you can basically bring it at work.
This is one of the more expensive models but with how it can help your foot problems and alleviate pain, it is worth every penny. You don’t even have to take our word for it. Check out its real customer reviews from Amazon using the link below.
Also, don’t be fooled by its look. This oscillating pad may look simple but it is one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful. It has 11 variable speeds that go up to almost 4,000 RPM. It can target pressure points and it also has an arch-bar.
This is used by many medical professionals to help their clients who are having foot pain and problems with blood flow. The manufacturer also claims that it is USFDA approved for therapeutic use and that this product can help those with circulation problems due to diabetes and neuropathy.
There have been many attempts to replicate this product, but nobody came close to it. So if you are looking for a high quality massager that you can trust, this is it. Lastly, the price already includes ONE year full replacement warranty which is not very common.
TheraFlow Dual Wooden Roller
If you are looking for something that don’t need any power source and you can carry almost anywhere, then this product is perfect for you. It weighs only 1.6 pounds and is made from Theacea wood so it is durable and high quality at the same time. Those who purchased it intended to use it at home, office, and even while traveling.
It has a unique design with its 10 rollers (5 on each side) that rolls independently from each other. By rolling it with your feet, it performs reflexology and stimulates your soles and knead your pains and numbness away. You can also use it for acupressure by pressing the problem area on the nubs. Depending on your desired pressure, you can use it with or without socks. It works on Plantar Fasciitis, heel pain, and other types of discomfort.
Additionally, a manual is also included on how to use it effectively as well as a reflexology chart. And for safety, it is best if you don’t use it while you are standing.
