I purchased this foot massager from Homedics because of how often my feet get sore. I don't have enough money to pay someone else to do it for me, so I bought this instead. I've got to say that this foot massager is fantastic! I use it just about every day, even on days when they're not so sore, and yet they still actually manage to feel a lot better! I've got to say though, the only reason why this is not at an A-star grade, is because the fabric is not the best quality as I would have liked, as it makes your feet feel a bit weird after using it for about 5-10 minutes. I would suggest wearing socks if you're going to be using this.
