Good Massage & Good Heat
on July 3, 2012
This is my first foot massager, so I can't compare it to other products. But I love this one!
When I stand on it, it is such deep pressures that I feel my feet are very well massaged. I like it putting it in front of the sofa and put my feet on it too. That way, the pressure is lighter, and I can actually do it for a longer period of time.
The heat setting is great. It gets a little hot if I do it more than 5 minutes or so, which only happen if I'm using it sitting down (I can't last for 5 minutes standing on it, the pressure is too great and I don't stand in one place for 5 minutes).
What I love most about this is that I can use it for my calves. When I'm sitting on the sofa, I put this on the coffee table in front of me to massage my calves. The heat is fantastic! I put a pillow underneath when I do this so I can change angles depending on where on calves I want the massage (e.g. near knees, near ankles).
I'm sure this is not the highest quality massager ever. But it's $45. I wasn't looking for a top-notch massager anyway. I think it's as good as it gets for the price.
Fabric: It's thin. I just got it so I can't speak to the actual durability - maybe it's thin and durable, I don't know.
Heat: There is only one setting for heat - on or off. It takes half a minute to warm up.
Auto shut-off: It shuts off automatically after some time (I haven't timed - maybe 15 minutes?). It's right about the time I feel like the heat gets too much to me, so it works for me.
Noise: I don't find it noisy at all.
Weight: It's very light, so I can easily place it on and off my coffee table with one hand.
