Homedics Deep Kneading Shiatsu Foot Massager with Heat
So Far So Good
I have used this product for four days now. It does feel good and is relaxing unless you are bothered by the loud noise. I work from home and could never use this if I happen to be on a call.
I am also concerned about the negative reviews on the motor functioning properly. The rotating head on the left seems to hit a rough spot in the inner mechanism periodically and feels as it stalls just a bit.
I think the heat mechanism is very weak- seems just to be a red light that turns on without any heat.
I am keeping this because of the very high shipping cost to return a product -hoping this product doesn't let me down.
Even though this is still an enjoyable experience, I can't give it anymore than two stars, because of the issues mentioned above. I will certainly hesitate to order another Homedics product from QVC because of the questionable quality control issues. I would have been much better off just buying this at a local store and taking it back if needed without the high shipping cost.
I decided to get this foot massager despite the mixed reviews. As soon as I tried it, I loved it. However, after using it only a few times, it just died!! The wonderful customer service department at QVC was kind enough to tell me to send it back for a refund even though it was past the 30 days.
Homedics used to be a brand you could buy with confidence. Now I would hesitate to purchase another of their products.
Love QVC Customer Service
I purchased this for my daughter as a Christmas gift. She was very excited since she is a dancer and gets very tired feet. It worked great for 2 days, then it would no longer turn on. I sent it back for a replacement. The second one started out great as well, but stopped working after a few days too. Thanks to QVC's good customer service, it's going back again for a refund.
Happy Birthday to Me!
I have wanted a foot massager for home use, so I just ordered it for myself for my birthday. It arrived yesterday with my new Miz boots...and I opened the blue massager first! It works well, but I wish it spun a little faster and could massage a bit deeper. I wanted it for foot reflexology, but it just doesn't have the umpf for that. The heat feels just super. I think, overall, this is a great little gadget! As a teacher, I love it.
" Wonderful For Your Footsies!!! "
We ordered this item because of the Wonderful on-air presentation. We are so pleased w/our decision, it works so well, and it helps your tired/aching feet with its Wonderful rotation and heat!! If you spend a lot of time on your feet and or have foot problems in general, then this product is for you. We love the color choice as well, and got ours in the "pretty pink." This item always revives my sore tootsies/footsies everytime. Thanks so Much Homedics & QVC for another Great Item!!! Very Pleased!!!
This is worth every penny it is so relaxing and my feet feel so good I waited along time for this time to sit and watch QVC and get my feet messaged at the same time keep up the good work love you guys
Feels Oh-SO Good!
I have a Chronic Illness which creates pain throughout my body, 24 Hours a Day, 365 Days of the Year. Although I have found that having regular massage treatments does help to relieve a wee-bit of my pain; I am unable to afford to pay for "regular" appointments.
My most favorite part of my body to have massaged, is my feet. And in buying this as a treat for myself, if I close my eyes and relax while my feet are being massaged by this, it comes close but not exactly the same as a real person. The price is incredible and I won't hesistate to suggest this to friends who might be interested in purchasing this product.
My only reason for not grading this a Five-Star, is that the Heat feature doesn't warm up as much nor as fast as I would prefer.
I received this yesterday. I used it immediately. At first it tickled my feet and I thought oh no! It only took a few seconds and then it felt marvelous. I love it. I have a bad foot that was cut in half and I worried that it would hurt. As long as I did not put too much weight on it; it felt great. I set it down in front of my couch and plan on using it every day.I wish the heat was a little warmer but think the heat can't be felt through my socks but hey! such a minor thing.
I love it!!
Too loud; no Homedics box
This foot massager does work well, but it is very loud. My youngest child told me after Christmas to please turn it off because he was trying to watch T.V. I had to laugh because it's true. I believe the Homedics representative said that no one will know you were getting a foot massage at work if it was under your desk. Definitely not true with how loud it is. The heat is not very strong, but that wouldn't have been a deal breaker. The compact size is nice, but the cord is a little shorter than I would have liked. I actually bought 2 of these for my family at Christmas and was very disappointed that it did not come in a Homedics box (my massage pillow from Homedics did). I could have never given this to someone outside of my family for that reason alone. I am probably going to return both of these primarily because they are so loud.
Very nice - great for sore feet from exercise
I really like this foot massager. I use it daily. The "heat" is more like a warmth. Don't expect it to be like a heating pad. It does warm the system up enough to feel nice. I've had one of these in the past and wore it out from using it so much. Great for heel pain and I use it since I have plantar fascitis. After a run or high impact workout, this is wonderful. Experiment with foot placement if it feels a little uncomfortable. It is a massage and not a rub so you should feel some resistance.
Pleasant to use
I gave this gift to my husband for Christmas with mixed feelings. I wondered if he'd really like it. Well, it was a hit! He likes it a lot and uses it frequently! The only draw back is that is kinda noisy. As a family we enjoy using it though.
NOT FOR ME!
Received this for Christmas and was excited by the on-air demonstration. Heat
