I bought this primarily for my wife; who has issues with circulation in her feet and lower legs, but I also use it. We are both Type 2 diabetics, so we're concerned about maintaining good circulation. We've had it about 3 weeks, and we're very satisfied with it's effectiveness and ease of use. We tried several "foot and lower leg massage" models first; and because we couldn't find one that worked comfortably with our calves(none accommodated anything other than smaller size calves), we returned them. This foot massager seems to stimulate circulation very well, and I would recommend it to anyone who has similar issues!
I had read the description pretty carefully, and also the other reviews before I selected and bought this item, so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect. Overall I am pleased with my purchase! Yes, like the other reviews say, this is not one of those hard tap-tap-tap type massagers that will give you a deep tissue massage and leave you with skin bruises. This is good, as my wife has sensitive skin and prefers the gentle vibrating type massager, which this is. She likes the lighter setting and I, being a big beefy man, like the stronger setting. It's good and does what you expect. The battery lasted as long as we used it for, so no problem being cordless, and the strength of the motor seemed fine too. The hot/cold feature is subtle, but noticeable and welcome, depending on whether you optionally want a warming feeling or cooling feeling on your skin at the metal pad. One point is that the heat/cold only works when then vibration feature is on. It would be nice to have hot/cold with no massage at times, but this seems not possible with this unit. Besides that, my only complaint about the design is that the whole handle vibrates a lot, rather than just the head, so holding the massager can be a little tiring at the hand. We experimented with different ways and locations to grip it to minimize the unwanted hand vibrations. Still overall, we like this massager and I feel it is a good one.
I purchased this for my baby, thinking it'd be all "NATURAL". After I purchased, I was able to find the ingredients on karess krafters website and it contains cetyl alcohol which irritates my babys skin. 3 stars for having good herbs but loses 2 stars for one irritating ingredient. Super fast shipping, overstock!
