Our lives become more stressful as we progress in our lives, running from home to work and from work to the store, sometimes literally. If you spend most of your time on your feet or sitting at a desk for long hours, your feet are likely to swell up and want some extra care at the end of the day. Foot massages are no longer a luxury for the elite; they are necessary for good foot health. They require massages with such regularity that besides clinics and therapists, even malls and airports offer them! Unfortunately, getting foot massages at a therapist’s often can empty your wallet faster than it fills. Having a massager at home will simultaneously save you money, and the time it takes for appointments. Here are our picks of the top massagers in the market:
Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine by Cloud Massage
At $299.99, the Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine is not your average foot massager; it is the best buy for getting a professional Japanese Shiatsu massage therapy session at home.
You can adjust the Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine to multiple positions for deep kneading, not just your feet but also your ankles, calves, and legs, with its adjustable bar and 2 chamber open design. The Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine’s most remarkable feature is its 3 intensity levels of customization for pressure, vibration, and heat. With five settings for diverse functions and massages, the Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine guarantees the most relaxing therapy. It promises and delivers relief from aches and pains, improvement in blood circulation, and muscle recovery stimulation. Rolling massage, compression therapy, a sway function to loosen stiff joints, and a heat function to relieve muscle tension are combined to give your feet and legs a deep tissue massage. All this and more is noiselessly accomplished by your comfort companion with its quiet mode to soothe and relax you. The Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine is suitable and highly recommended for conditions including plantar fasciitis, diabetic neuropathy, heel spurs and swelling, soreness, and knots caused by heavy workouts and long hours on your feet.
With its versatile features and multipurpose use, the Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine ranks first on our list of top massagers in the market. Despite its 5.0 star rating from over 50 users, 1-year warranty (if registered), and a $50 discount with a promo code, if you remain unsatisfied with your Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine, Cloud Massage will replace your machine for you or fully refund you.
Reflex5s Foot and Calf Massager
Reflex5s Foot and Calf Massager by Human Touch is our second pick in the foot massager category.
It uses the massage professionals’ techniques and methods to relax calves and feet. The Reflex5s Foot and Calf Massager forces blood away from the feet using its Figure-Eight movement towards the body’s core, thereby alleviating soreness and pain. Our second pick includes reflexology therapy, a massage system performed on the theory that a foot massage can revitalize various other organs due to their connection to the feet. As suggested by the name, our second pick will also massage your calves after a tiring run.
The Reflex5s Foot and Calf Massager has 2 auto-massage programs, speeds, and motions. The 2 compartment foot massager is also adjustable with its tilt base for positioning it according to your comfort.
At $229, it is cheaper than our first pick and comes with a 1-year standard warranty., However, it features fewer functions than our top-ranked foot massager.
Shiatsu Foot Massager
Shiatsu Foot Massager by its maker, Renpho, a high-end foot massager with its modern touch panel, compact size, and remote control, ranks third on our list.
Comprised of controls for the heat function and an auto timer shut off, the Shiatsu Foot Massager stands tall in its group. It also embodies 3 intensities for heel and arch deep-kneading; and air compression. A scraper and roller positioned at the arch provide added support. The Shiatsu Foot Massager also comes with a deep sole reflexology massage, but that’s not where it stops; even the intensity for the reflexology massage comes with 3 variations for your heel, sole, instep, and toes.
The Shiatsu Foot Massager costs $139.99 and has a 4.7 average rating from more than 3000 users. Renpho also allows replacements within 30 days and a 1-year warranty upon registration. Had the Shiatsu Foot Massager been made to massage legs and feet, it would have likely been higher on our list.
Shiatsu Foot Massager with Switchable Heat
The Shiatsu Foot Massager with Switchable Heat by Belmint is our fourth and cheapest pick of the lot. But that does not mean it’s not a worthy purchase.
It offers a therapeutic massage with rotational deep-kneading nodes, air compression therapy, reflexology, and acupressure massage that relieves pain, stimulates blood circulation and oxygen flow. You can customize your massage therapy session by its optional heat setting, varied massage intensity, and 3 massage programs. It also comes with 2 chambers but is restricted solely to your feet.
Costing you only $99.99, the Shiatsu Foot Massager with Switchable Heat has a rating of 4.6 based on more than 20 reviews by satisfied customers and a one-year warranty. Within 90 days, you can return the Belmint product for a full refund.
Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager
This Yoisho shiatsu massager by Miko ranks last in our list of top massagers. It is an elegantly compact device that vows to alleviate pain, destress and re-energize your mind and body. The Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager with 2 chambers also features heat, pressure, and circulation for your feet and comes with customizable settings for speed, pressure, and heat.
The Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager costs $149.95 and additionally offers a targeted heat function and a wireless remote for your convenience. The Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager offers free returns. Unfortunately, it does not provide replacements. What’s more, the Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager does not come with a warranty and requires added payments of $39.99 and $49.99 for a 1 year and 2 warranty, respectively.
Next time your plantar fasciitis or heel spur acts up, you won’t have to schedule your visit to the physiotherapist months in advance. If you have diabetes, you will find a new friend in your newly purchased foot massager. You will find it quickly becomes your go-to solution for muscle weakness, cramps, and twitching, caused by diabetic neuropathy. Even sore muscles after your intense workout will benefit from a massage to smooth out the knots in your legs. Regardless of which foot massager you buy, you will be glad to have purchased one on a challenging and tiresome day.
