The Homedics FMS 270H is a Deep Kneading Shiatsu Foot Massager. The deep kneading nodes help to relieve the tension in your muscles. It has heat to help stimulate blood flow and aids in the rejuvenation process. Shiatsu basically means “finger pressure” in Japanese, which this machine imitates.
With the 18 nodes that are built into this foot massager, you get a lot of work done on several of your feet muscles at the same time. The toe-touch control allows you to use your toes to control the power so you don’t have to reach forward with your hands when you are sitting relaxed in your chair.
The good thing about the FMS-270H is that is quite strong and can put deep pressure into your feet. The heating is also quite comforting which helps you to relax and soothes your feet after a long day standing and walking.
However, some customers report that it tickles them too much to use for more than a short time. So if you are very easily tickled, perhaps you would want to look for a foot massager machine with bigger nodes. Many customers also find it a bit irritating that it does not have any ability to adjust the angle. It is locked in place. If angle could be adjusted, other areas such as calf could also be massaged with this device.
