The following is a frank review of the 3Q MGF18 Foot Massager w/ Heat, KneadingShiatsu Air pressure massage. It’s a great alternative for those expensive massagers. It provides an array of useful functions that matches the features of similar high end products at a reduced cost.

Who Is It Best For?

The 3Q MG-F18 will be most useful for people who have to stand or walk all day. If your work involves walking from one destination to the other or standing in place for long hours then this massager will provide relief for your tired feet. It’s also a great way to have foot massages at home instead of paying for one in a spa.

More Affordable Than Competing Brands

The 3Q MG-F18 Foot Massager is definitely more affordable than its competitors. However, you should think twice before calling it cheap. It offers the same features and functions just like its more expensive counterparts. That is added value for your money.

Multiple Functions

This foot massager features several massage functions. It performs both shiatsu and pressure massage targeting all the acupressure points on both feet. This produces an all-around relaxing experience. This massager can target each pressure point accurately just like a professional shiatsu practitioner. The massage motions reach all over your feet including toes, heels, as well as the arches.

The 3Q MG-F18 Foot Massager also features three different massage intensities. Users can adjust the amount of pressure applied by this device. Take note that this electric massager has a manual mode and an automatic mode. Users can select the massages and other settings that they want to use.

Auto Turn-Off Feature

The auto turn off feature of the 3Q MG-F18 provides a degree of safety for the users. It also protects this appliance from burning out. After 15 minutes of continuous usage, the massager will automatically power down on its own. Remember that this appliance has a heating function; you can still enjoy the remaining heat even if the massager has automatically turned off.

Downsides

The 3Q MG-F18 Foot Massager does not accommodate very large feet. If your feet are like the size of an NBA player then your entire foot may not fit inside the hole of this massager. If your feet are larger than say a size 12 shoe then the entire length of your foot may not go into the massager; some of the back parts (mostly in the heel area) won’t be go in thus not getting the needed massages.

Another minor downside is that it has no remote. Controls are on the massager itself (right on the top). You have to bend over to get to it. Not an easy task for some people. It would have been better if the package included a remote so that users can remain seated while selecting the settings they want.
