CloudMassage Shiatsu

Triple Massaging Effect

People who suffer from regular pains and soreness in their legs caused by some kind of chronic condition or disease or experience swelling and discomfort due to low mobility or sedentary work know firsthand how hard it can be to get rid of those unpleasant feelings. This is where Shiatsu massage turns out to be very helpful. Yet, visiting a physical therapist will take you time and money while the leg massager from Cloud Massage can deliver the same effect right in the comfort of your home.

First off, designed to embrace your feet and legs all the way up to your knees, this model will bring relief not only to your soles and heels but also to your ankles and calves. Featuring an open-toe construction, it will fit any foot size. More than that, unlike other massagers of this type meant to sit on the floor and hold your knees under the 90-degree angle, this unit offers perfect adjustability and flexibility. It comes fitted with a special angle-adjustable stand bar to let you sit in a more natural position. So, you can comfortably sit in an armchair or recliner or even lay in the couch.

To ensure the Shiatsu effect, the Cloud Massage combines three technologies including air compression, vibrations, and heat, all of this intended to maximally relieve your muscles and improve the blood circulation in your lower limbs. Thus, air compression massage pairs with deep kneading, ensured by the rollers to work on your muscles and tendons, stretch the tissues and balance the lymph flow. The heat in its turn promotes the blood flow and reduces the stress and the feeling of heaviness. Notably, the air pressure is variable and there are multiple settings to choose from to meet the most exacting needs.

To resume, the leg massager from Cloud massage is one of the most popular models that provide maximum customizable operation and can serve both as a medical device and as a pleaser for tired legs.

Human Touch 200-REFLEX4-001

A Touch of Comfort

Feeling spent after a day on your feet and want to get some feeling back in your toes and calves? Just put them into the Human Touch 200-REFLEX4-001! This foot and leg massager uses the unique CirQlation technology to do “figure eight” vibration on your legs, quickly lifting any stress or soreness from the muscles. Alternatively, if your feet are cramping up, engage the under-foot rollers that will knead your soles and soothe them at the same time.

We do have to admit that the 2 intensity levels that the device offers don’t seem all that different and, in the end, may be a bit too much for an injured leg. So we’d say that the Human Touch 200-REFLEX4-001 is less of a medical device and more of a way to relieve stress and alleviate tiredness. If you do have sensitive feet, don’t hesitate to switch between the massager’s modes, we recommend the Relax one for soothing and the Refresh one for working out any muscle tension.

Note that the sleeves of this model only fit up to men’s size 14 so those with bigger feet are out of luck, unable to feel the amazing softness of the Human Touch 200-REFLEX4-001’s massages. Also, don’t forget to take off the sleeves regularly and wash them if you don’t want your device to get a certain unpleasant odor, nothing relaxing about that!

So if you’re not looking to heal after an injury but rather simply get the stress out of your feet, the Human Touch 200-REFLEX4-001 is an excellent choice. It’s effective, versatile, and easy to use thanks to the automatic shut-off function and adjustable modes. This vibrating wonder will get you right back on your feet.

FIT King Leg Air

Fit for a King

Trying to recover after a nasty leg injury? You need to do some exercise for sure but don’t forget about leg massaging to improve blood circulation and get the muscles back in top shape. We recommend using the FIT King 4332498074, a particularly gentle massager fit for medical use as well as for relaxation purposes.

The high-quality velcro straps will help affix the leg and calf massager on your calves without actually squeezing them, which is highly important for keeping the blood flow going and preventing damage to a tender area. This product is completely suitable for plus-size people as well since the special extensions help get the massager wide enough to wear on 26-inch calves.

Speaking about the massage itself, we’ll simply say that the 3 intensity levels are a blessing if you’ve had an injury just recently but still want to enjoy a soothing massage. Also, you can choose whether to engage one particular sequence, basically opting for spot vibration to work out the stress in parts of your legs, or just engage the “whole leg massage” mode.

Our sole complaint lies in the length of the remote control’s cord. There's a reason the controls are called "remote" and a cable this short is simply not practical since you have to bend down to turn it on. At this point, we’d have preferred a cordless and battery-powered remote.

Still, a poorly designed accessory shouldn’t deter you from enjoying a relaxing and medicinal massage from the FIT King 4332498074. It’s a high-quality massager for both stress and pain relief.

What Is a Leg Massager?

There’s nothing more pleasant than letting your legs relax after a long day of running around doing errands. But simply letting your feet and leg muscles rest isn’t as effective as putting them into a leg massage machine, which will feel like a soft hug warming and caressing your feet. These devices use vibration and heat to relax your muscles and soothe them even after extremely tiring workouts. They can also be used for medicinal purposes to massage a sprained ankle or a pulled muscle, nursing them back to health. Depending on the model, these machines can be free-standing or akin to sleeves you’d pull onto your leg, offering either a full-leg massage or a spot one, covering a smaller area but offering more intensity.

We also highly recommend using these machines if you often experience your legs cramping up or going numb. A leg massager is good for circulation improvement, raising blood flow to your legs to keep away the cramps and other unpleasant feelings.

If the health of your legs is something you truly care about, consider getting a pair of compression socks. And get that muscle strength up by buying (and using!) a treadmill to run a few miles every day.
