Miko Shiatsu Review With Deep-Kneading, Multi-Level Settings

The Miko is one of the best-rated foot massagers available on the market today. This model uses 5 different pressure settings to target and massage specific pressure points, relieving your pain and relaxing your muscles. The unit comes with two separate remote controls for an easier use.

Features And Programs

One of the advantages of using the Miko foot massager is that it’s very user-friendly. You can either control the unit using the simple and straightforward control panel, or you can use one of the two remote controls the manufacturer provides with each massager.

The control panel has soft-touch buttons, and all the controls are illuminated and easy to track. Using the remote control will allow you to change every setting without having to bend over to the massager’s level. While the remote controls don’t have a very long reach, they don’t even need one since your feet will most likely be inside the unit when you use them. Providing remote controls is a good idea, and it might be really helpful for people who have trouble bending over, such as the elderly.

Another advantage of using this model is that it comes with a 15-minute auto shut-off feature. This feature will ensure the unit won’t consume too much power if you forget to turn it off, and it will also protect the unit against overheating. If you want to massage your feet for more than 15 minutes at a time, you can simply restart the massager using the remote control or the buttons on the control panel.

A good thing about this model is that it has a really good design. This unit does not only look good, but it’s very functional as well. The foot chambers are separated, and each of them provides a very good massage. The unit is also very stable, and you won’t have any problems placing it on shiny surfaces.

Another good thing is that this unit is really easy to use. The massager doesn’t weigh too much, so it’s easy to move from one room to another. The unit’s compact size will allow you to store it easily, and you will be able to push it under most sofas to keep it out of sight when you want to.

The unit has a very low maintenance level. Its cloth cover is zippered, and you can remove it to wash it if you want to. The outer shell of the massager is also very easy to clean, and you can do it using a warm water and a mild detergent or soap.

As far as the massage itself is concerned, this unit uses 5 adjustable pressure levels to inflate and deflate the built-in airbags in each foot chamber. Deep-kneading massage nodes will work on the soles of your feet and relax your muscles. The heated massage feature can be activated and deactivated selectively, and it will produce a gentle warmth around your feet.
