There is no denying that most of the stress and exhaustion that you carry around on a daily basis can be relieved with a good and relaxing massage. Foot massagers are actually quite popular with people of any age since they are useful tools that can help you take care of unpleasant cramps and comfort your body after long and stressful days. Yet when there are so many different choices commercially available in the market, it can be really difficult for a lay person to actually pick the best product to cater to your specific needs.
Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager Review
The overall function of the system must definitely be taken into consideration when deciding which foot massager is the best option for you. Some foot massagers are meant to offer relief from relaxation and stress, while others have more therapeutic advantages. Some of these benefits include decreased sores, stimulation of blood circulation, and inflammation, and pain and ache relief.
There are many advantages that this device actually offers to the user as it is a versatile product but one that we really appreciate is the fact that using the Miko foot massager is super easy as it is a very user-friendly product. Using the extremely simple and multi-functional control panel, you could either control this device manually, or make use of one of the two remote controls that the company provides with each massager.
Another benefit of using this model is that it comes with a 15-minute auto shut-off functionality. It function will ensure that if you forget to turn it off the device will not use a lot of power but will also simultaneously protect the machine against overheating. If a longer massage is what you are looking for, to soothe your feet for longer than 15 minutes for example, you can just reboot the massager using the remote control or the device’s control panel.
There are soft-touch buttons on the control panel and all the functions that this foot massager provides are lit up thus making them far easier to monitor. Having the added benefit of using a remote control will allow you to make any kind of adjustments to the settings without ever needing to physically have to change the settings by getting up or even bending down to fix the settings of the massager.
Although the remote controls do not catch signals from very far off, this is not a necessity as you will almost always be using the device from v when you use them your feet will most likely close by with your feet inside. This is especially useful for the elderly who will be most likely to use this kind of a foot massager but might not be able to fi the settings manually as it would require a lot of movement.
Now, for a device which will be in active contact with your feet, this device needs to be in tip top shape. So when it comes to customer service and maintenance, the Miko foot massager comes equipped with a warranty of 1 year and we absolutely love it. Although we would have preferred if this product actually came with a lifetime warranty, it sadly does not and this is quite clearly stated in the device’s manual of instructions which claims that it only has a one year warranty.
However, this is also pretty impressive as within this one year period, the manufacturer will fix or replace any faulty parts which are unsatisfactory or do not uphold the brand’s quality promise. When it comes to design, this device is quite appealing visually as it has a sleek and round body which completely encapsulates your feet once they are put in. One major issue with this device, however, is the fact that it has been reported to not cope as well with the top half of your feet as well as it should and focuses solely on your soles. Apart from that even the heel can feel neglected.
The Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager is actually a very easy to maintain device as it has a very low level of maintenance. One of the biggest issues with any electronic device is how to clean it. Its cloth covering can be taken off and removed easily as it is zippered and if you want, you can remove it to wash. The cloth can also be cleaned with a wet cloth as it is all about convenience. The massager’s outer shell is also very easy to clean, and with the aid of warm water and a microfibre cloth or soap it becomes so easy.
As for the massager itself, this unit makes use of 5 adjustable levels of pressure to inflate and then easily deflate the cool airbags which it has been fitted with in each individual foot chamber. According to the brand, their multi-functional deep-kneading massaging nodes are great for covering every inch of your tired and achy feet however according to quite a few reviews online; it is actually not as good for the upper side of your foot and also has trouble addressing the needs of your heel. However, this does not mean that it does not provide an effective heated massage experience. You can activate and selectively deactivate the heated massage feature, and it will produce the gentlest warmth around your feet.
Now, on first glance, this product looks quite bulky but you will be surprised to find out that is not the case as it is quite compact. This massager does not really weigh a lot so you won’t have to worry about not being able to carry it wherever you want. Whether that is transporting it from one room to another, or even with you while you are on holiday, this will be a breeze. The compact size of the unit definitely makes it easy to store when it is not in use, and since it is quite sleek, it will fit underneath your furniturein case you want to keep it insight.
