As a rheumatoid/osteoarthritis sufferer for 25 years, I suffer from extreme foot and ankle pain, constant inflammation and edema, aching calves from unused muscles, limited mobility and stiffness.
The first time I tried it, it was using a display model. Sat in it for 5 minutes and it was so relieving. I didn't want to get up! There has never been anything so relieving besides a human massage. This could even beat that. My fiancé bought me one soon after and I use it everyday. It relieves morning stiffness and soothes my daily pain whenever I need! I love it!
I purchase this just a few weeks ago as I was having a terrible problem with my ankles hurting after being on my feet a lot and was actually worried that I might have to quit working due to the pain. It was also making it hard for me to walk my dogs for any length of time. Since using it daily for 2 sessions in the morning and usually after work my ankles are not giving me any grief. I would recommend this to anyone who is having problems with their feet or ankles. I'm sold on it.
I have arthritis in my one ankle, and it was becoming a serious problem when I walked. I bought this a year ago, and use it for about 1/2 hour a day. I found that the massage increased my circulation, in both my leg and ankle. This increased circulation reduced the swelling in my ankle. I had read that doctors are identifying that increased blood circulation to an injured area is the best thing you can do. Using this has made all the difference in the world to me, I can walk relatively pain free.
I bought 2 of these models for my husband who is always on his feet at work and my father. The benefits of these are great. My mother reports better circulation in her feet. My husband uses every day and gets relief from tired feet. My father likes it too. Two families using them and like the product. The great benefit is that it is very easy to use and converts into piece of furniture (ottoman). I am not sure how good is the warranty on it. Bought it in June 2012 - still works.
I am so happy that I bought this massager. My husband and I use it every night. It has really made a difference in relieving my aching feet. Quality is excellent and the sale price is a super value. There are 3 massage modes and each one is great.
Best product ever.
Much more then expected.
Thank you for relieving my problem legs.
First off, I have a Cir-Q-lation Pro but I bought this product because of its nice design to compliment my I-joy massage chair. And thinking that from the same company the function will be almost the same.
Well, it's actually not. The HT-1355 has three modes which are the continuous massage and the two programs. The continuous massage is quite acceptable but the preset ones are not. The slow massages of the presets are kind of "stop and go, stop and go movement" (as compared with the Pro which is a smooth slow massage)seems annoying.
And lastly, the super bright LED on the panel has to be covered since it shines directly to your eyes which may give you eye-strain after the massage.
I did not return the product because it still usable and a nice ottoman for the chair.
I purchased this foot and calf massager along with the iJoy 2720 massage chair.
This foot and calf massager features the figure eight massage mode as advertised.
It feels very invigorating and I am very happy with the purchase.
As the instruction booklet mentions, if it feels too tight on your feet and legs, just remove your socks and use it with your bare feet.
Conversely, if you want a more invigorating massage, wear heavy tube socks or perhaps a pair of blue jeans with thick socks.
I do not find the massager tight at all, in fact I tried it with heavy socks and found the massage more invigorating the way I like it.
The unit also swivels over to make an excellent ottoman to rest your feet.
The massager looks very durable and attractive, and really compliments the looks of the iJoy 2720 chair.
I'm really glad I made this purchase.
I just received this unit yesterday, and was talking to a nice lady in the customer department, Cathy who cared enough to explain to me that this unit has no moving parts on the sole. Not to mention that I have to call them 3 times to find someone that cared about their customer.
The kneading motion on the machine is so weak that I hardly feel any acupressure on any part on my feet. They should call this a 'calf massager'. I wished I did try this before I made a purchase for my friend and myself.
