Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HoMedics FM-TS9-GB Deluxe Shiatsu Foot Massager (Personal Care)
Bought this two months ago and overall I am very pleased I did it.
In my own opinion nothing beats a foot massage given by my partner, but on those days where she is not in the mood to give one, this is still a great alternative especially for people who put alot of strain on their feet from standing all day, playing football, dancing, running, etc.
+ The three rotating balls do a great job of massaging and you can simply move your foot anywhere on them to focus the massage on a particular point
+ The heat function is very nice in the winter but you can turn it off
+ Very simple and easy to use
+ Quite light and compact in comparison to other foot massage products I have seen
+ sturdily built and aesthetically pleasing in my opinion
+ Massage can be as delicate or as vigorous as you want, all you have to do is put more weight on your feet while sitting
+ Your feet really do feel great afterwards!
+ My partner loves it too and she is normally against having too many gadgets around the house
- Doesn't pay any attention to the top side of your feet, but not many devices of this type do as far as I am aware
- no timer or automatic shut off (I hear that you shouldn't really do more than 15 mins massage in one sitting or else you could be overdoing it)
-I wouldn't say its really THAT portable, although its entirely possible if you really wanted to take it somewhere with you, it would fit in a rucksack
- The place where you put your feet is not washable so I recommend using the device while using fresh socks for obvious reasons!
Thank you homedics for another great product! (I also have the sp-10 shiatsu cushion which is also ace!)

Very good comment. This will make the person who designed this machine to realise that s/he should put more thoughts into it. I totally agree with you.
