The best foot massager on the market will be able to:

  • Massager feet effectively
  • Release stress and tension
  • Allow you to relax
  • Work wonders without costing a bundle

There are some things in life that you should spoil yourself with, and a foot massager is definitely one of them. Who has the money to go to professional masseuse every time their feet hurt? With the right foot massager, you can get a foot massage that’s equivalent – or better – than what you would get from a professional masseuse.

You owe it to yourself to relax after a hard day’s work.

Top 5 Best Foot Massagers

We’ve had the pleasure of trying dozens of new foot massagers this year, and we’ve picked the top five based on price, functionality and quality.

1. Homedics FMS-270H Review

List Price:$56.95
Sale Price:$55.50
You Save:$1.45 (3%)
Futuristic, Homedics offers one of the industry’s best deep kneading Shiatsu foot massagers. The FMS-270H is backed by over 600 reviews, and costs less than $75. This model is packed with features, including:

  • 6 rotational heads
  • 18 massage notes
  • Heated surface
  • Toe touch control

When you sit down and place your foot on this massager, it automatically starts moving its six individual roller heads counterclockwise to melt your stress away. The surface is heated, which relieves tension, aches and pains while also increasing your blood flow.

The roller heads are meant to provide a deep massage, and they feel just like a masseuses’ thumb pushing into your foot.

If you find yourself going for a longer massage that’s over 15 minutes, you’ll notice that the heat function automatically shuts off while the massage heads continue to work their magic.

This is the absolute best model on our list in terms of price, massage quality and performance.

2. uComfy Shiatsu Foot Massager Review

List Price:$149.95
Sale Price:$129.99
You Save:$19.96 (13%)
uComfy is a little different because you’re placing your feet into what look like pillows. When you do this, you’ll be able to receive a full foot massage – not just the bottom of your feet. This means that the tops, sides and bottoms of your feet will all be massaged thanks to this unique design.

This model features:

  • 5 control levels
  • Heated design
  • Heat, kneading and pressure massage

What I really like about this model is that you place your feet right inside for a full massage. You also have the ability to press the “+” and “-“ buttons to increase or decrease the intensity of the massage.

If you’re a person that stands on your feet all day, this is the right choice for you.

The heat melts away your stress, while the intensity levels allow you greater control over your massage. This is the perfect choice for any home, and this model is backed by over 200 positive reviews.

3. 3Q MG-F18 Foot Massager

List Price:$269.89
Sale Price:$129.98
You Save:$139.91 (52%)
The 3Q MG-F18 is a lot like the uComfy in design. Offering a shiatsu air pressure massage, this model also includes heat melt away stress and tension. It also has a kneading function that will cover all of your acupuncture points in your feet.

The 3Q features:

  • 18 multifunctional features
  • Shiatsu and kneading massage
  • Heated function
  • 3 intensity levels
  • 2 auto modes / 1 manual mode
  • Automatic shut off

What we really liked about this model is that you to control the intensity levels from low, medium to high. This allows you to adjust your foot massage to your personal liking, but there’s something that this model has that the others don’t: auto modes. What these automatic modes do is adjust the intensity, heat and pressure during your massage for a more natural feel.

And your foot is entirely engulfed with this air pressure massage.

Offering shiatsu and kneading massage, we literally fell asleep in our chair when using this foot massager. And when we woke up, we were pleasantly surprised to see that it automatically shut itself off. There’s a built-in 15-minute timer that ensures the unit shuts off, so the unit doesn’t get too hot due to the heat.

If you have a mid-range budget (under $160), this is the model for you.

4. HoMedics FMS-200H Review

Sale Price:$79.99
HoMedics is such an amazing brand that it’s made our list twice. This model, the FMS–200H, comes in a sleek white color, and looks more like a scale than a foot massager. But this model is very effective at offering a foot massage for the bottom of your feet.

And this is reflected in the price, which is under $50.

This model features:

  • Soothing heat
  • 4 massage heads
  • Counter-rotating heads
  • Full foot coverage
  • Touch control select
  • Led illumination
  • Kneading massage

What’s really nice about this model is that you can stand on the unit for a very deep massage. If you choose to sit down and put your feet on it, the intensity will be reduced. The heat setting does get a little bit hot, but it’s incredibly soothing after a long day on your feet.

Auto shut off initiates after 15 minutes of use, and the unit isn’t noisy at all.

You can even place this model on a coffee table and massage your calf if you wish. For anyone that’s on the market for an entry-level model, I couldn’t recommend the HoMedics FMS-200H more highly – it’s an exceptional product.

5. Kendal Shiatsu Foot Massager Review

Sale Price:$219.98
The final model on our list comes from Kendal. This shiatsu foot massager is a high-end model, but it’s worth every penny. This model is backed by rave views, and offers a massage for not only your, feet but your calves, too.

This model features:

  • 3 heat levels
  • 3 calf massage options
  • 8 massage discs
  • 4 calf massage discs
  • 360 massage coverage
  • Multifunctional massages: shiatsu, kneading, rolling and vibration
  • Heated design
  • Ergonomic features

You can also use the remote control or touch features to turn on the unit. While much bulkier than the other models on our list, you’ll be able to experience a full leg massage from your calves down.

With the utmost in heat and massage options, this model is comfortable and will lull you to sleep with its accurate, diligent massages.

Why Foot Massages Are Great

Whether you’re an athlete, on your feet all day, or a hard worker like everyone else, a foot massager is beneficial to your health and well-being. When your feet are properly massaged, you’ll experience the following benefits:

  • Anxiety relief
  • Relaxation
  • Looser muscles
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved energy flow
  • Healthier feet

Anyone that has arthritis, plantar fasciitis, problems with blood circulation in their legs, or joint issues will find that a regular foot massage will alleviate pain and discomfort. This is not just another expense, but a way to increase your health and reduce stress at the same time. It’s something that you owe to yourself after a long day, and every model on our list is very affordable.

The real question is: why wouldn’t you get a foot massage?
