It’s no denying that a lot of us live busy lifestyles and after a long day, no doubt your *dogs* get tired! Yes, we are usually talking about canines but today we mean *FEET*! :) Who doesn’t love the feel of a good foot massage or a nice warm soak to soothe tired feet?
There is lots of evidence that our feet have pressure points that when massaged, reflect on other parts of our bodies, therefore increasing overall health. Not only is there science behind why it’s good for you – it just plain feels *great*!
With the new year here, I’ve been running my fair share of errands and it seems like the list keeps growing! It’s nice to know that when I come home, I can take just 15 minutes out of my day and give myself some much needed pampering / relaxation.

I’m a fan of the Johnson Wellness Heated Foot Massager! It’s not your average foot massager – a higher end model with a modern look, several modes and a heat function as well. It has several different rollers that rub your feet in all the right spots (instead of just one massager rolling back and forth). Each mode lasts for 15 minutes and you can easily use while watching tv, on the computer or just lounging back and taking a few minutes to yourself and enjoy it!!
The Johnson Wellness Heated Foot Massager also compresses your feet at certain points, giving the right amount of pressure and then releasing. It’s something different and what I think sets it apart from other foot massagers as well.
The heat function is nice but I wish it got a little bit warmer. One trick I’ve found that is an easy solution is to “pre-heat” but turning on the heat function before you turn on the massage and then it’s nice and warm for you. (Otherwise, you don’t really feel the heat until the end of the massage and it feels so good, all you’re wanting is more!)
The Johnson Wellness Heated Foot Massager is also great for feet of all sizes. The pressure of massage is also adjustable so if you like more or less pressure that’s an option too. Another nice perk is the removable/washable cover – so I’ve let a few different friends try it to get their opinion too. It’s got great reviews from everyone who’s tried it and it’s funny watching people practically fall asleep, so relaxed, while using it!
