When your feet hurt, you feel miserable all over. For those who spend a lot of time on their feet, the HoMedics Shiatsu Pro Foot Massager may be the remedy for those tired, achy metatarsals. This massager features six massage nodes on two rotating heads for each foot. A smooth, soft material that easily wipes clean covers the device and the electrical cord conveniently wraps and stores underneath the unit when not in use. A big advantage of the HoMedics Shiatsu Pro Foot Massager is that it is used in the convenience of your home and is available whenever you need a good foot massage.
The Shiatsu Pro Foot Massager can be placed in front of your favorite chair and a simple toe tap on the control turns it on. One more toe tap switches on heat and a third toe tap turns the unit off. Sweet and simple. When switched on, all twelve nodes on four heads begin rotating under the soles of the feet, stimulating circulation. The instructions recommend wearing socks for the massage and this seems to bring the best results. The machine runs with a soft soothing hum so that you can sit back and relax.
The simple, natural weight of the foot provides enough resistance for an adequate massage but if you want a really intense massage, you can press your feet downward just a bit. The heads are strong enough to keep rotating under a gentle pressure. The heat option is an especially soothing touch, especially for those cold tootsies that cramp up in the winter. It heats to a warm comfortable temperature, but not too hot. Your feet bear the brunt of your entire day’s activity. The opportunity to take the weight off and allow those warm, rotating nodes to melt away the stress is pure luxury.
A few reviews claim the unit does not massage the entire foot if you have large feet but, no matter the size of your feet, you will find yourself adjusting them over the massage nodes anyway, to concentrate on specific areas.
The machine cuts off after fifteen minutes and leaves your feet feeling tingly and rejuvenated. When your feet feel better, you feel better all over. And a relaxing foot massage can even improve quality of sleep. You will find more information on the HoMedics Shiatsu Pro Foot Massager on the HoMedics website.
