Conair Foot Spa Reviews – Home Foot Massage Spa Machine
Hello to all. We would like to welcome you to our Conair Foot Spa Review, in which we will delve into the world of home foot massage spa machines.
These are beneficial electric appliances that can ease away any feet aches and pains that you may be suffering from. If you have an injury of some kind, then a session in one of these will help reduce any swelling and aid the healing process. There is also the choice to simply use one for the sheer relaxing pleasure that they offer.
What also makes a foot spa machine so appealing is that they can be used at any time in the comfort of your own home. Kick back in your easy chair, put a movie on, and sink into the depths of massage/spa bliss.
From humble beginnings…
The model that we will be discussing today is an excellent foot massage and spa machine from the renowned personal care manufacturer, Conair. They had humble beginnings; in fact, the company started off selling hair rollers from a backstreet garage in Queens, New York, way back in 1959.
From then, Conair has grown into a world-leading manufacturer of personal care products and are now based in Stamford, Connecticut, U.S.A.
So, let’s find out about the Conair Foot Spa and see if it’s a great addition to your relaxation routine. We’ll start by discussing the different features this machine has to offer…
A major feature of the Conair foot spa is the vibration setting, in which the unit gently vibrates to enhance your massage experience. You will feel gentle movements that flow through the water to sensualize and relax your feet. This setting helps to recreate the overall realism of an actual spa.
There is only one speed setting for the vibration, but we feel it is set just right. The spa has toe touch controls, so you can choose to have this on or off and do so with no bending to reach the controls.
You have three choices of temperature to select from, cold, warm, and hot.
If you are using the spa due to swelling and inflammation of some kind, then you should use the cold water setting. This will give you the best results for treating such ailments. If you are feeling brave, we would actually suggest placing some ice cubes in the tank. Do so if you dare!
For warm and hot, please note, the spa does not actually heat up the water you have filled the tank with. You need to heat up the water to your chosen temperature first and place it in yourself.
Twenty minutes of bliss…
What it does have, however, is a mild heater, it will help to maintain the water temperature, for up to about twenty minutes. After that period, though, the water will slowly start to cool.
Warm to hot water will really refresh your feet and send that lovely warm feeling upwards and into your legs.
However, it has been an annoyance to some users that the heater is not stronger and can not keep the water to temperature, or even heat up cold water placed in it.
So, we need to point out that the reason Conair designed it this way because twenty minutes is the recommended duration to keep your feet wet in one go. After that is when your feet start to shrivel up and begin to feel uncomfortable.
There is a massage attachment that the Conair spa supplies that will give you a sensual, full foot massage. The deep reservoir fully covers your feet and will massage both the bottom and top of them.
There are also massage rollers that are placed under the feet. These work together with the vibrations running through the water, to treat your feet to deep massage action. The rollers work with the movement of your feet, and they are not electrically operated. It takes very little effort to receive satisfying effects; however, the base of the Conair is textured all over, for extra sensations.
This is an attractive looking spa that is colored in lavender over white with a blue base.
The water is in one complete bowl that is shaped for you to place your feet in comfortably. This can accommodate up to a size 15, so do not worry if your feet are a bit on the large side.
The base has a textured surface that, with movement from your feet, will give you soothing sensations. Plus, there is a splash guard that you can attach to lessen any worries of wetting your flooring or carpets. Especially handy if you have the massage setting turned up high.
The total size of the unit is 7 ½ by 14.6 by 16.6 inches, and it weighs in at 1.8 pounds. And a six foot power cord supplies the power from your plug socket. At full capacity of water, it will take two gallons. That is to the brim, so one and a half is going to be a suitable amount to submerge your feet sufficiently.

Conair Foot Spa Review Conclusion
We do hope our review has been helpful in deciding as to whether the Conair foot massage/spa is perfect for your needs?
Remember that this is Conair’s base model, but that by no means makes this one to avoid. The vibration mode, in particular, is excellent for relaxing and soothing aching and tired feet. And the base has a very appealing feel to the soles of your feet, and the rollers for massaging take very little movement on your behalf to reap their soothing rewards.
Some may want a spa machine with an electric massager fitted. And there is a massage attachment we have mentioned that you can fit to the unit. It does not, however, have a built-in massager. We do not see it to be an issue with this Conair massager but, if you do, this will not be the one for you.
Some like it hot…
The water temperature is up to you. For injuries, we recommend using cold or even iced water, so there is no issue there. But if you just want a relaxing time of it, then warm or hot water is best.
Again as mentioned, the heater installed will only prolong warmth, not keep it continuously to temperature. A healthy twenty minute session should suffice anyhow. Some users have stated they wished for a stronger heater. If you agree, then you may need to look at other models. We really do not see this will be an issue for most, though.
Thanks to you, until the next one, thanks for reading through.
Happy and relaxing massages!
