Detailed Review of the Shiatsu Foot Massager with Heat
Design and Durability (5.0/5.0)
The Shiatsu Foot Massager is a compact massager that has almost everything a foot massager can offer. It kneads onto the muscles of the feet and squeezes hardly like that of a human massager. It does a fair job of pressing onto the arches of the feet, thus it efficiently relieves foot pain after just a few minutes of using it. One of the things I like about this massager is the option to choose the intensity of the heat. It definitely makes the feet relaxed and most of all comfortable throughout the massage session. Since it is just slightly more than 5 kilograms in weight, you can also easily carry it anywhere in your house. Moreover, it’s durable and it’s good for foot sizes up to 12 inches.
Ease of Use (5.0/5.0)
The mechanical massager is easy to use. The heating options are straightforward and the automatic massage choices save half of the time you normally spend to manage preferences. Restrictions are just for those who are suffering from serious illnesses or those who are at risk of developing blood clots. Other than that, this should just be simple for the regular user.
The Shiatsu Foot Massager does a good job of kneading different parts of the foot, thus making the foot feel good after just a few minutes of using it. It effectively works on relieving and relaxing your feet, so your body feels energized. I also observe a difference in terms of the intensity of the three automatic massage programs, thus I’m expecting varying results for each and every user. These options are therefore must-tries.
I find the mechanical massager expensive at $249.99. Although it’s effective in terms of relaxing and relieving foot pains, I believe the price should be lesser for something that’s just limited to the feet.
- Offers flexible massage and heating options
- Very portable
- Efficient in terms of relieving foot pains
- A bit expensive for a mechanical massager that mainly works on the feet
The Shiatsu Foot Massager is one of the easiest and most convenient massagers available in the market today. It’s a bit pricey, but the results are definitely satisfactory. This is a must-have for anyone who is not on a tight budget.
