Best Overall: Ivation Foot Spa Massager

For a seriously rejuvenating, ultra-relaxing foot massage that’s on par with a professional spa treatment, look no further than the Ivation Foot Spa Massager. The water warms up quickly and stays piping-hot for as long as you want it to be, and the massager comes with two built-in motorized rollers to address each part of your foot and slough off calluses, plus bubbles to boost circulation. You can even add in Epsom salts if you want to take your spa experience to the next level. An added bonus: This massager comes with both a brush attachment and an acupressure attachment.

Best Shiatsu: Belmint Shiatsu Foot Massager

Thousands of positive reviews can’t say enough about this Belmint Shiatsu Foot Massager, that’s what tired feet are begging for after a long day of working and working out. It has two deep-kneading nodes that work in unison to relieve chronic pain, knots, muscle tension, plantar fasciitis, as well as other aches and pains and it’s also small enough (only 12 pounds to be exact) to take with you on-the-go should you need to massage away from home. This massager also has a heat button if you want to work on your feet in a cozy way or warm them up after a cold workout. Don’t worry though, it will shut off automatically after 15 minutes of being on. Roomy enough for feet up to size 12, the Belmint even has a removable washable cover and five different pressure levels.

Best Roller: TheraFlow Large Dual Foot Massager Roller

theraflow-foot-massager

Part acupressure, part reflexology tool, the TheraFlow will be your best friend when your pads are feeling the pressure from intense sports activity. Made of Theaceae wood, the 1.6-pound dual-sided foot massager alleviates pain quickly just from moving your feet back and forth over the grooved rollers and it’s also super portable—great for people who like to work out when they’re traveling. Since it isn't electronic, the price is reasonable for most and even makes a great gift for a walker or runner in your life. Reviews praise that its fast-working, won’t slide all over on a carpet, and helps with cramping. Another plus? It improves blood flow after just one use.

Best Electronic: MedMassager MMF06 11 Speed Foot Massager

If you’re the type of person that doesn’t want to have to put in work when it comes to massaging tired toes, you’ll definitely be a fan of the electronic MedMassager. Unlike rollers where you have to move your legs the whole time to get any relief, you simply press a button on this oscillating foot pad (with an arch-bar) and concentrate on the areas that need targeting the most. With 11 different speeds, it stimulates circulation in the legs and feet via 1,000 to 3,700 RPM and is FDA certified. And although it’s slightly on the pricey side, it also comes with a 1-year full replacement warranty against defects.

Besides people who just like to relax their feet, this is also used by diabetes and neuropathy sufferers to help increase blood flow, relieve pain, and swelling.

Best Water Spa: Brookstone Heated Aqua-Jet Foot Spa

If you can’t get to the spa, make the spa come to you. Take your foot massage to the next level with Brookstone’s Aqua-Jet Foot Spa that incorporates water jets and built-in heat and accommodates up to a men’s size 14 foot. Choose from two adjustable speeds and warm up to 115°F while rolling nodes massage through kneading techniques that soothe tired arches and more. There’s even a detachable pumice stone so you can exfoliate rough patches that cause even more soreness making this the complete at-home pedicure set. Just beware of filling the tub too high, as a few reviews mention splashing and water overflow can occur if it’s too full.

While the cost might be high for some, it can save a bundle for those who spend money on pedicures at the spa.
