I am not sure under which category to list this review. As it is not a prescriptive medication, just therapeutic for tired feet.
I purchased this product as a gift for a friend for Christmas.. She is always looking for something to ease pain she sometimes gets in her feet from walking long distances. She has often expressed that she would like something that was easy to maintain and use without filling it with water, like the foot bath/massagers. I was shopping at Kohl's and came across this item, all that was needed was 2 size D batteries (not included with product). I not only gave her one for Christmas, I also purchased one for myself.
I tested the massage pillow and found it to be relaxing, the time I spent was about 10 minutes as the product doesn't give a time limit. I also use it to massage my hands after they became achy from knitting all those Christmas presents for some friends. My hands felt great after using it (see photo), I placed my hands in the pouches and turned them from the palms to top of hand for about 5 minutes, worked very well. Ahh, blessed relieve from tired achy feet and hands.
After you remove the clear poly bag, you will notice a slight odor. This odor is common and completely harmless, according to manufacturer. To dissipate the odor it is recommended that you "air-out" the product for approximately 24 hours. Other features are: easy to clean, soft fabric and pillow comfort. The down-size is that the foot massager doesn't come with the batteries. And the best feature of all was that it was on sale!!
