Whether you are a runner, a basketball player, any other athlete, or a just a plain shopaholic and window shopper you can never escape the curse of painful soles when you have overused your poor feet. A comfortable pair of shoes that is most appropriate for your activity may help you in avoiding painful feet in regular activities but that is not always the case.

In an episode of painful feet, it is very valuable to have a foot massager in handy. This is the very reason why, these days, foot massage stalls can be found in many big malls. By availing of their service, tired shoppers can sit for a few minutes and relax while their fatigued feet are being brought back to life.

True enough, such business does not run out of customers and are jam-packed most of the time. Having your own massage product is also highly desirable because with it, you can have your much needed foot massage right at the comfort of your own home. People used to consider this idea as a luxury but now that a wide array of massagers is available, including cheap ones, you can easily fit it in your budget!

Foot massage products nowdays also have high functionality. This is one of the many things that should be considered when getting a massager. Most of them today come with a built in leg massager. This type is the one used in foot massage stalls. They can deliver a satisfying amount of pressure to both the legs and feet which can really help the blood flow.

On the other hand, there are some models that concentrate on facilitating the feet. These include the foot spa bath which is used in spa parlors, the warm foot massager which has a sock-like pouch where the feet will be warmed and inserted-perfect for cold winter nights, and the Shiatsu massager which may be hot or cold.

One of the more extreme pieces is the foot massage slippers which are also available in unique and creative designs such as the penguin. It does not matter whether you are young or old or if you prefer a hard or soft massage. There is definitely a massager that will give you what you want and need. Almost all these products come with a remote control which you can use to set the pressure and massaging pattern.
