Best Shiatsu Foot Massager
TheraFlow Dual Foot Massager Roller (Large). Relieve Plantar Fasciitis, Stress, Heel, Arch Pain - The Original - Shiatsu Acupressure Relaxation. Full Instructions/Reflexology Chart. Christmas Gift
I bought this Best Shiatsu Foot Massager item in conjunction with the Theraflow Dual Foot Roller (the single roller for each foot) in an attempt to relieve the extreme foot pain I was experiencing from my new job. My new workplace has old wooden floors and I walk the entire time I’m there. Even with proper cushioned footwear, my feet would hurt while I worked and after I came home. Then it progressed to where I could barely walk each morning when I got out of bed. I would literally hobble every morning for the first ten minutes or so until the pain subsided. My feet started to ache constantly throughout the week, even on my days off, and I found myself unconsciously repeating the phrase, “Oh, my feet hurt”. I’ve tried Epsom salt soaks many times and it helped a bit, but not much longer than after the soak was over. Rubbing them didn’t do much either.
I decided to look for a solution by purchasing a foot massager. I remembered the incredibly expensive foot massagers I’ve seen at places in the mall. I didn’t WANT to spend that much, but my feet were killing me, so I figured the expense would be worth it. I read the reviews first, and found that so many people said they all broke within a few months, or that it hurt too much to use, or that it developed a squeak after about a month, which made it annoying to use, and that their customer service wasn’t helpful in regards to fixing the problems. I couldn’t see spending that much knowing that many problems could arise and essentially have a $300+ piece of junk on my hands (or rather my feet).
I continued searching Amazon for a different solution, and I saw this little wooden roller set by Theraflow. Honestly, it looked like something my grandparents would own. I didn’t figure it could really do much for me, but I read the reviews. Most of them were positively glowing! Several people described having the same foot pain I was experiencing and said this was definitely giving them some relief. It’s not very expensive, so I thought I’d try this as a first attempt and move on to something else if it didn’t work. As I said in the beginning, I also bought the single roller along with the XL Dual Foot Massager, because reviews said the single roller helped to get into the arch of your foot better and I was experiencing a lot of pain in the arches as well.
It was delivered within two days which I thought was extremely prompt. It came well packaged, nothing was damaged, and I used it immediately. The nubby parts on the back sort of hurt at first as my feet were quite sore from the start. But after using both items, my feet felt less constricted and less sore. I was able to walk with less pain. Now it’s been about three weeks since these massagers arrived, and I’ve purposely waited in giving a review to see how they help.
I can tell you that I use them every day at least twice a day. I’ve created a routine of waking up and rolling my feet on both items within a few minutes of getting out of bed for maybe 2-3 minutes. I then get up and get ready for the day. I come home at night and use them for 5-10 minutes in the evening while watching television. Every week I’ve seen improvement, and by this third week, my feet barely even hurt while at work. I’m no longer hobbling out of bed every morning!! Many of my co-workers are complaining about their feet and their backs, and mine no longer bother me. I can still feel a little soreness, but I wouldn’t classify it as painful at all. As of last week, I’ve recommended these products to at least two of my co-workers who are the most vocal about their foot pain.
By the way, those little nubby parts on the rollers are the best part now that the pain has subsided! The XL size is definitely the way to go. The extra row of “nubs” feels really nice, and don’t let the XL title confuse you into thinking it’s just for the largest of feet. I believe it will work for any size feet, it just gives you extra surface area and an extra nubby roller.
I am soooooo happy I accidentally stumbled onto this product while searching for those way more expensive mechanical massagers. It has saved me a bundle, I don’t have some gigantic boot-like contraption sitting in my living room, and I honestly believe these rollers are more therapeutic for my needs than the mechanical shiatsu devices. You should definitely give this item a try before pursuing more expensive options. You may just find it’s the only solution you need.Promised Review By Music Changes Everything
