The Best Electric Foot Massagers

A good foot massage can feel just as good as night of wild californication. You think I’m kidding. Nuh-uh. I’ve been told I look like I’m about to hollah during a good one. And believe me, there have been times I felt like I might! Now, I’m not a masseuse, or anything else that involves a proper education of how and where to touch someone’s piggies. Alls I know is I feel like I’m in heaven when someone does it right.

Unfortunately, we can’t all have a masseur at the ready when we get home from a day of cruising the office in seven-inch stilettos. But that shouldn’t stop you from getting your tootsies pampered. Honestly, I meant the title of this article literally. A good foot rub can relax the entire body. I know this from experience. Therefore, I recommend the next best thing to your own personal piggy pamperer – get an electronic foot massager. Really! Have you seen some of these babies? They look like something out of Star Wars, and some people swear by them. Let’s take a look at a few.

Biju Healthcare's Deep Tissue Foot Massager

This baby is supposed to be so intense you can keep your shoes on. And yes, my mind has already wandered… Getting back on topic, this is recommended for a maximum of fifteen minutes per session. I’m not sure why, maybe your teeth start falling out at 20. Either way, this seems to promise a rather intense experience, so make sure you have your seatbelt on.

Cost: $199

The AcuPressure Foot Massager

Hello, Buck Rogers! This baby just looks cool, doesn’t it? It uses 36 pressure points and claims to sort your circulation out – through your entire body – just by hitting the right spot. Has 3 levels of intensity and also has a heating option. Looks pretty nifty, to me.

Cost: $130

The Equalizer Pro Foot Massager

Ok, this one looks more like I’d imagine a home foot massage thingie to look. It’s even created with the average couch potato in mind – all controls are easily manipulated by foot! How lazy is that? It looks sleek and sexy though, doesn’t it? Massage is ergonomic and works by tap tap tapping away your aches and pains.

Cost: $160

Gaiam Miracle Foot Massager

How could I not include something with a name like this? It doesn’t look all that impressive to me, but, hey, a miracle’s a miracle. The promo says there are 70,000 nerve endings in your feet. Now do you see what I was saying when I compared a good foot massage to nookie? This machine claims to send gentle bursts of current through your footsies. I dunno if I like the idea of zapping myself, but if it sounds good to you, be my guest.

Cost: $150

If you’re in the market for one of these bad boys, my advice would be to check them out in person first. Try them on for size and make sure they can make you hollah before you put your dosh their cash register. I’m sure they all get the job done, but we all have different thresholds of pain – if it hurts, make sure it’s the “hurts so good” type before you buy.
