Who Needs a Foot Massage?

I’m a teacher and on my feet chasing three-to-five year-olds all day long. Then, I go home to chase my own kids in the evening and on the weekends.

Most of the time my feet are just tired or maybe a little sore at the end of the day. But I also go through painful flare-ups of plantar fasciitis when my arches are unbearably painful.

Then there is my husband – he delivers for UPS and is constantly “walking at a brisk pace” (it’s against the Safe Work Methods to run!) all day long to get your packages from point A to point B. He wears through shoes faster than my six-year-old and is constantly fighting sore feet.

Whether you just need a cup or tea and a moment to relax, or a full on deep tissue massage, this Shiatsu Foot Massager has a setting that will work for you!

Let’s Take a Look at the Machine

The control panel is on top of the massager and is super easy to use. There is a power button (on and off settings), heat button (on and off settings), intensity button (low and high settings), and air pressure button (off, low, medium, and high settings.

There is no remote, so you do have to reach down to choose your settings. For some, that might cause a problem, but it was little to no extra effort for me. But if you don’t want to bend down, the buttons are large enough that you could also use your toe to press them.

It is powered by a 12V power cord, which is 5.5″ long. This is great because the cord reaches just about anywhere that you want to place it. I use it at my recliner and my husband uses it at his computer desk.

It sits flat on the ground, which is comfortable when you’re sitting upright. I like to lay back in my recliner, so I put something under the massager so it’s at a more comfortable angle for my ankles.

The fabric on the machine is not removable or machine washable. But the fabric is easy to wipe clean with a damp washcloth. The fabric covering the rollers is a padded jersey material, which is great to allow airflow. After two weeks of use, we haven’t noticed it holding on to any odors.

Tell Me About the Settings

The heat option activates a red light in the massager, so you can see that it’s on. It gives a nice amount of heat when you’re barefoot, but it’s not really noticeable when you’re wearing socks. My infrared thermometer registered the surface temperature at around 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The massage comes from three rotating acupressure discs. Those have a low and high setting, which rotate the discs slowly or more quickly. They do a good job reaching your heels, arches, balls of your feet and your toes. You can move your feet around while using the foot massager to hit all of your target spots just right!

Then there is the air pressure that can be left off or set to low, medium, or high. It inflates an air pocket around the top and sides of the feet, which gives a cozy squeeze and presses the soles of your feet more firmly into the acupressure discs.

I like the medium-pressure setting the best, but the high-pressure setting is great for those who like it to hurt so good. It does a really good job of digging in to those aching feet!

Using no air pressure or low pressure is perfect to just sit back and relax, helping to melt the stress away. My six-year-old likes to giggle through her feet being tickled with the low acupressure and no air pressure setting.

This foot massager is great for small and large feet alike – my size 7 feet don’t reach the ends of the front or back acupressure discs, and it fits my husband’s size 11 feet just fine.

If your feet are much larger than my husband’s, I would just recommend alternating your feet toward the front and back of the machine to hit all of the targeted areas.

So What Do We Think About It?

This foot massager is great to use in the evening after work! It’s really quiet, so we can use it while watching TV. The only time it makes a louder noise is as the pumps will the air pockets. That’s just a brief pneumatic sound, and its back to being whisper quiet!

It has a 15-minute auto shut off feature, which is a little short for my liking. But it hardly takes any extra effort to turn it back on and reset my preferred settings for another round.

The machine doesn’t remember the last used settings, so you’ll have to choose put your favorite settings in each time. Again, its a completely trivial inconvenience, and doesn’t make me love it any less!

We haven’t quite hit freezing temperatures yet, but my husband is looking forward to using the foot massager after he gets home from frigid work days. This will be great to increase circulation and warm your feet after you’ve been out in the cold.

I am most looking forward to using it when I have my next plantar fasciitis flare up. I can use it on the most gentle settings to help work through the pain and loosen everything up.

My girls both like to play with it, when supervised by mom and dad. They are both fully entertained by their tickling massage.

It costs $89.95 on Amazon, which seems to be a more affordable option than similar models available from other brands. As long as the massager holds up over time, I think this is a good price.

If you do have any problems, they do have a 1-year unlimited warranty. I really appreciate that they stand behind their product enough to have their warranty cover everything!
