Buying Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Leg Massager

What Is the Foot Massager

The foot massager is a device that, just as the name implies, massages the feet. It can be of various types, not by the electric force. Regardless of its characteristics, and any technologies to which it refers, its purpose is to reproduce, as far as possible, the effects of a real foot massage.

Why Buy a Foot Massager

The reason is simple: to enjoy complete freedom, in the comfort of your own home and without resorting to specialized centers, a foot massage. Or, at least, of something that comes close to him. From this point of view, in fact, the human contribution is only partially replaceable.

Foot massage is a cure-all for the body and, why not, also for the spirit. Among the many advantages of a foot massage, the following stand out:

  • Reduction of The Effect of Swollen Feet and The Feeling of Heaviness in The Legs: Swollen and painful feet are a common problem, mainly due to the use of uncomfortable shoes or the maintenance of the standing position for too long. A good foot massage, even with a massager, can alleviate this type of problem.
  • Reactivation of Blood Circulation: Foot pain can be caused by circulation problems. Obviously, a massage does not solve the root problem, but it certainly greatly reduces its effects and can temporarily reactivate the circulation.
  • Reduction of Stress and Anxiety: Massage is synonymous with relaxation. It is carried out not only to cope with circulation problems, acute pain, contractures, etc. but very trivially to enjoy a little relaxation. From this point of view, massage is a useful tool to dissolve anxiety.
  • Attenuation of Leg Problems of Pregnant Women: Pregnant women often complains of foot problems, mainly due to circulation problems and the accumulation of lymphatic fluid.
  • The Total Absence of Contraindications: Massage, if done well, has no side effects. Of course, it is good not to improvise masseurs, on pain of the appearance of annoying contractures. In the case of the electric massager, however, this risk is practically absent, as all models are tested before being put on the market.

In this context, the foot massager is a good substitute for the classic massage performed by a “human” expert. First, for savings. Even the most expensive of devices, in fact, will cost you less than the sessions in a massage center.

Secondly, for convenience, as it allows you to enjoy a massage without leaving your home. Finally, for convenience, also in terms of time. Obviously, you can use the massager when you like best: before going to sleep, after a workout, all compatible with your commitments.

Types of Leg Massager

The Manual Foot Massager: Pros and Cons

As we said, there are several types of “artificial” massagers. A very interesting type is that of manual massagers. These, as can be easily seen, do not use electricity but refer to mechanical dynamics.

This category includes, for example, roller massagers, or even the balls massaged. Regardless of the models, all have one thing in common: to function, and therefore to produce the massaging effect, they need human intervention.

In short, those who intend to benefit from the massaging effect “must do something”. In principle, the human contribution is reduced in placing the foot on the device and moving it back and forth.

This is the case of the roller massager: the movement of the limb produces the sliding of the rollers, whose friction on the skin, in turn, produces the massaging effect. The same goes for massage balls.

The advantage of manual massagers is the cost, which is really negligible. On the other hand, there is no electric and although the less electronic mechanism that can increase costs.

There is talk of a dozen euros for massage balls and a few dozen for roller massagers. A few words should be spent on the material: the more the material is “valuable”, the higher the cost. Also, for this reason, the balls, being plastic, cost by hand. Generally, however, we tend to prefer wood.

Another advantage is their ability to last over time. Typically, electrical mechanisms tend to fail sooner rather than later. In this case, given the absence of elements of this type, the problem does not exist.

However, manual massagers have disadvantages compared to other categories. In the first place, as already mentioned, they still require human intervention, which can be considered annoying.

In short, with these devices, massage is still an activity rather than a passive treatment. Secondly, since the devices are not very complex, their effect is good but not excellent.

Let me be clear, they produce a certain feeling of well-being, but we are very far from the effect of “human” massages and far enough from the effect of electric massagers.

The Water Foot Massager: Pros and Cons

This type of massager uses the action of water to produce a massaging effect. They are electrical devices, therefore already much more complex than the manual category.

Their functioning, as well as the mechanism of action, recalls that of the whirlpool. For this reason, they are also called “foot massagers”.

They are among the most appreciated devices by those who intend to guarantee themselves, at home and free of charge, a massage or treatment that however reproduces the effects.

Around there are the most disparate models, some also very technological, but in principle, they are all able to act on:

  • Blood Circulation: the rollers are heated with jets of air or with infrared light, so as to reactivate blood circulation by means of heat;
  • Corns and Calluses: hot water generates a resolving effect on this kind of ailments. From this point of view, the hydro massagers that allow you to adjust the water temperature are indicated;
  • Fatigue: the sense of fatigue can be fought generating a relaxing effect. Hot water, especially if the temperature is optimal, relieves both physical and mental stress.

Furthermore, all water electric foot massagers are characterized by the presence of rollers. It is these, in fact, that actually carry out the massage. Unlike manual models, the rollers are electrically operated.

This kind of device has almost no contraindications. Obviously, abuse must be avoided. Firstly, because the foot may be affected by excessive and prolonged contact with water, with reference to the classic skin problems caused by overexposure in a fluid.

Secondly, the device may wear out and break. It should also be remembered that the “automatic” massage has no therapeutic validity, but simply contributes to generating a feeling of relaxation and to alleviate certain symptoms. If, for example, therefore, you suffer from blood circulation, the hydro massager is not the solution.

The Electric Foot Massager: Pros and Cons

Electric massagers are sophisticated devices, as complex as water ones, which unlike the latter, however, do not use any type of fluids. The operating mechanism is based on the rollers, on which the feet are placed.

These rollers move automatically, generating the massaging effect. Depending on the design and, more generally, the model, the electric massagers intervene only on the plants, on the sides and, in some exceptional cases, also on the calf.

The feature that distinguishes this type is, in addition to being highly effective, the cost. Their price is undoubtedly higher than the manual models and often higher also than the hydro massager.

In addition to this disadvantage, which is however justified by the performance, there is also a certain sensitivity to abuse. Put simply, electric massagers are at risk of breaking if they are used too intensively or without criteria.

They are, however, always electrical devices and for this reason subject to breakdowns. This problem, incidentally, is absent for obvious reasons in manual massagers.

There are various types of electric foot massagers on the market. However, some elements are very common and can be found in almost all models.

  • Rough Surface: Obviously, not so rough as to produce annoyance or worse tickling. The non-slip surface increases comfort and convenience so that those who use the device must not apply any force to keep the foot in place.
  • Adjustable Speed: Most of the electric massagers allow you to modulate the speed of the rollers. This is essential for setting the treatment on a relaxing rather than invigorating level.
  • Display: Many electric massagers, especially the most recent, have a display interface, based on the canons of accessibility and comprehensibility. In addition, there is almost always a remote control, so you can set the machine to your liking without having to bend over.
  • Heating Function: Heat is a panacea for the production of the relaxing effect. It is no coincidence that some oriental traditions are based on the action of heat (e.g. massage using heated stones). Electric massagers in most cases use heat by heating the rollers.

How to Choose the Foot Massager

As we have seen, the offer is quite abundant and heterogeneous. So how do you choose the product that best suits your needs? To answer these questions it is necessary … Ask yourself questions. Here are which.

What Is My Budget?

Prices can vary widely. They range from a few Euros of massage balls to several hundred Euros of the most performing and function-rich electric massagers.

So, even before you start leafing through the catalogs, you need to understand what your spending power is, or very trivially check how much you are willing to spend.

In this regard, it should, however, be remembered that even the most expensive models produce savings if the alternative is to turn to a massage center with a certain amount of diligence.

It should also be remembered, however, that the effects, although similar, are not comparable. The electric massager subrogation but does not replace the massage as it were human.

Do I Have Physical Problems or Do I Just Want to Relax?

Here the question becomes more complicated. It is understood that the electric massager has no therapeutic efficacy and, except for some ultra-technological models.

It cannot be considered a medical device, the presence of pathologies or however physical ailments could influence the choice of the model.

Specifically, if you suffer from circulation problems, you often have swollen feet, etc. you should point to electrical devices, even better if water.

If, on the other hand, you are just looking for a tool to relax after a tiring day, or while doing something else (e.g. watching TV), you can consider the manual models and you can also use the leg massager for relaxation, which are also inexpensive among other things.

How Much Do I Intend to Use the Massager?

We have specified below that abuse is always not recommended. It is, however, especially if you use the electric massager and the hydro massager.

Firstly because, in the case of water models, prolonged contact of the skin with water can cause some problems; secondly because the models could break.

However, if you intend to use them frequently (but it is clear, within the limits of the norm), aim for the best performing models, even at the cost of paying more. In this regard, it should be specified that the best performing models can even exceed 500 euros in price, so consider the purchase well.
