Massagers for Feet
Foot massagers circulation booster what is the difference? If you have never heard of the circulation booster it is basically an electronic muscle stimulator designed with feet in mind. The circulation booster also includes separate electrodes that you can place on other parts of the body to help ease pain in those areas. Just in case you aren't sure how electronic muscle stimulation works, there are electrical impulse sent through to nerve endings that stimulates muscles making them contract and release. As a result, circulation is improved and pain subsides.
While the circulation booster or electronic muscle stimulation doesn't actually massage feet like a foot massager, it is similar in that it provides healing like a foot massaging machine does. However, there is only one circulation booster, whereas, there a several different types of foot massagers. We all have a preference when it comes to foot massage, so it's a good thing that there are so many foot massage devices available.
To add to this, there are feet and leg massagers and they are even better yet for circulation since they massage the legs as well as the feet. It is common for those with foot circulation problems to also have poor leg circulation. Then, there is the option of air compression massage boots that massage in a much different way than a leg and foot massage machine.
Foot Massagers- Types
Foot massage feels good, especially when you have achy or painful feet. Most people who have foot pain appreciate any relief they can get. A foot massager is a practical solution and there is something for everyone from the simple to high tech massage gadgets.
Let's start with most simple foot massager, which is the wooden foot roller. It's not only simple it is effective. While it may take a little more work on your part it will do in a pinch. For example, at work when feet ache, you can take off shoes and get relief in a matter of minutes.
Next, we have the foot massaging ball and it is just as portable and simple as the wooden foot roller. Take it anywhere and use it anywhere it's so small you can put it in your pocket. The best part about these two massage devices is that they are affordable, so even if you don't have a lot of money to spend your feet won't suffer.
Taking it up a notch there are handheld battery operated foot massagers or mini massagers that can be used on any part of the body at a moment's notice. The only issue here is that you must keep fresh batteries in it or it is useless. My suggestion is carry batteries in the car.
Next, there are electric foot massagers with or without heat. The heat feature is very popular with those who have poor circulation since they tend to get cold feet rather easily. There are deep kneading shiatsu foot massaging devices and gentle soothing ones. You will find that there are all sorts of features available as long as you're willing to spend the money for them.
Finally, let us not forget the old faithful water foot massaging machine. They have been around for years and are a favorite of mine. There's nothing that feels better than putting achy feet into a tub of swirling hot water with bubbles gurgling about. These days you don't have to heat up the water either and the best part is that the water stays hot unlike the older models.
As you can see there are various options to choose from when it comes to foot massagers. There is something for everybody whether you have $10 or $100 you can afford some type of foot massaging device that will help alleviate foot aches and pains.
On the other hand, if you have the extra cash ( $200) the circulation booster might be a nice present to yourself. Do your homework and read reviews to make an informed decision.
