What is the best foot massager [for you]
A foot massager is one of those luxury items everyone must-have. Deciding what massager to get can be tedious and can leave you confused and just frustrated. That is why I go over the absolute best out there (cloudmassager for me). This isn’t one of those 10 or 15 best foot massagers, then you might as well just go through amazon itself.
I tried to narrow it down to the best in each different design of foot massager. I go over the pros and cons of each. There is a foot massager out there for everyone, no one person is the same and everyone’s needs are different. That is why I try going over each try to reach a broad audience and it’s up to you personally to choose the best for yourself.
Going into this compilation of foot massagers just remember in my opinion you shouldn’t cheap out on luxury items like a massager. That is why I didn’t include those things you roll your feet on or those ball massagers. I think it is a complete waste of time. You want a luxury experience and not be there working while you “relax” then you aren’t really relaxing.

Are foot massagers any good?
Yes and yes. They provide massive benefits in a range of things. They can reduce swelling in your feet, improve your blood flow, help with plantar fasciitis, relax your feet after a long day, loosen joints, and ease muscle tension.
Nothing can be more relaxing than getting a great foot massage after a long day of work. Especially if you work long hours where you have to be on your feet the whole time.
You don’t have to ask someone to rub your feet. We all know how that goes, two minutes of massaging then it’s time to swop turn or the massage is over. This might not be the case for everyone, but if this sounds familiar you should get a foot massager. Getting 15 minutes of a quality foot massage, without any complaining.
Is it bad to use a foot massager every day?
I won’t say it is necessarily bad to use a foot massager every day, but you should limit the time you use it. You should try to limit your use to about 15 – 20 minutes a day and also not use it at a too high setting for too long. Rather start at a low setting and move to a higher, but comfortable setting for you.

A lot like the above-mentioned foot massager from renpho. The first difference is that this foot massager can take a bit larger feet so if your feet are a bit on the larger side you can check this one out. Another difference is in the way they look.
In my personal opinion, the renpho foot massager looks a lot better and more up-to-date, but that doesn’t really matter. What matters is the design choice in where the buttons are. Here you have to bend over to get to the buttons whereas with the renpho you can use your toes to press them.
The buttons, looks, and size may not be of concern to you, but where the miko foot massager might be the better choice is that it is open at the back. This can be a lot more comfortable for long-term use because the back of your ankle won’t be pressing on something that can result in irritation.
The mika foot massager is more expensive than the renpho. Other than that there are no other real differences. They both set out to do the same thing and you won’t be disappointed in either one.
Premium foot massager

Great top tear foot massager. I highly recommend getting a quality foot massager to start out with. Yes, it can be pricey to start with, but how much do you pay to get a foot massage done by someone.
The Cloudmassage shiatsu foot massager is great for.

- Improve blood flow with heat and compression for diabetic neuropathy
- Reduce inflammation for plantar fasciitis
- Relax your feet after a long day
- Loosen joints
- Ease muscle tension
With an adjustable bar, you can massage your feet, calf muscles and, even your arms. The open design makes it easy to use and comfortable and does not limit you to just sitting and keeping your feet at a certain angle.
H&B Foot Spa Bath Massager
4.4 rating with over 780 reviews on Amazon
If you want to get serious about your foot spa home experience you should get yourself one of these machines. Before you take a relaxing foot massage first take a foot soak. Not only will this boost the relaxation experience, but also help keep things clean and hygienic.
I highly recommend getting a foot spa with a foot massager to give you that full circle home spa experience. Also don’t cheap out, you might just ruin the whole experience for you and not give it another try in the future.
The rotating ball massagers are something a bit different from most other foot spas. I personally prefer these ball massagers, but this can also differ from person to person. I feel that they cover more of your feet than just the traditional rollers. It also has a lid so you can close it after use and put it away for proper storage and avoid anything from getting it. A nice and deep bucket and the red light really give you a sense of relaxation. The only real downside is that it can be a bit hard to clean and takes up a bit of space for storage, but I think the soak experience will be well worth it.
