NURSAL MD-50230A Review
Hey there, and welcome to our NURSAL MD-50230A review, where we take a closer look at a great product that is currently on the market. In this article, we will delve into its features, benefits and of course, the pros and cons of this electric home foot massager.
If you are looking for an easy, satisfying and impressive machine to use, then this excellent massager from Nursal could well be what you are looking for.
Having a quality foot massager in your own home makes perfect sense. Just think, you have been on your feet all day long and arrive home feeling exhausted and weary. What better way to revitalize your feet and lift your spirits, than to place them in a foot massager, for a relaxing after-work session?
Drained after a workout?
The same applies if you have been for a workout, played your favorite sport or just spent the day wandering around the shopping arcade. Whatever the case may be, make yourself a coffee, switch on the TV, kick back in your easy chair and stick those aching feet in your very own massage machine. Sounds wonderful, right?
Well, you could be doing just that with this NURSAL MD-50230A Shiatsu therapy foot massage machine.
So, let’s take a closer look at this superb massager and find out if it’s the perfect one for you…
The design of the Nursal is rather striking, to say the least. The two seperate red illuminated, cloth lined, foot portholes give the impression you are going to place your feet into the abyss, giving a very futuristic feel to this machine.
The size of the MD-50230A is small and compact when compared to most massagers. However, it will still easily accommodate feet up to a size twelve, though if your feet are larger than that, you will find it a very tight fit.
The control panel is a straight-forward affair to understand and the icons are rear lit to easily identify the settings.
Removable and washable…
The cloth that lines the portholes are actually removable linen socks. These are fully machine washable to keep things nice and fresh down there.
A good feature of the Nursal MD-50230A is that it can be USB charged and run on its own power. This is cool because you do not have to be near to a wall socket to power the machine. If it is a bright, sunny day, you can go to the garden for a relaxing massage and sunbathe, for example. Neat eh?
Just to mention, however, we found that for such a small machine it could be considered rather loud. It is not ‘screaming the house down’ loud obviously, but might be an issue for some.
You may well have heard of the Shiatsu massage technique before. However, for those of you who are not sure exactly what it is, let’s explain…
Shiatsu is a massage style that can trace its roots back to the ancient times of traditional Chinese and Japanese medical remedies. And the word Shiatsu actually means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese. This massage uses fingers, thumbs and palms to manipulate, hold and stretch muscles. The force of a Shiatsu massage is generally quite strong, however, the effects can be extremely rewarding.
Your muscles are relaxed and invigorated, and the blood circulation is increased. At the end of a Shiatsu massage session, you will feel ready for action, once again.
Three Massage Functions
The advantage to the MD-50230A is that it encapsulates your feet within the portholes. So, unlike open top massage machines, that can only reach the lower edges and soles of your feet, the Nursal gives you full coverage. You will receive a ‘full monty’ massage with top to bottom, heel to toe coverage.
There are three different massage functions that you can choose from. These are, rolling, airbag pressure and heat. You are able to set all three to work together, separately or combine any of them to suit your preference.
As previously mentioned, the Shiatsu massage technique can be quite a harsh style of massage. For this reason, there are three strength settings – low, medium and high. If you cannot take the full force of the higher strength setting, just knock it down to one of the lower levels.
Warmth will enhance any style of massage, and the Nursal features a heat function to greatly aid in the relief of fatigued muscles.
Combined with the power of the rollers and airbags, heat is a great solution to aid your aching feet back to recovery.
You can select the auto timer in five-minute intervals up to a twenty-minute session, which is the recommended maximum to sit for one massage, without a break. But there is nothing to stop you using it any time you like more than once a day.
If you choose the high strength setting, we doubt you will last a twenty-minute session anyhow – it really is quite forcefull. To experience a five to ten-minute massage on this setting should be adequate enough to bring the life back into your feet. However, if you want a longer more soothing sensation to your massage, then go for a longer time on a lower strength setting.
The choice is yours. The best thing is to just play around with all the settings and massage strengths until you find the combination you prefer and gives you the results you are looking for.

NURSAL MD-50230A Review Conclusion
There we have it then, a rundown of what we consider to be, a great foot massage machine. This is a model you can comfortably use anywhere in your home, and even better is the fact it can be USB charged. This means that you can enjoy a nice relaxing massage in the garden or wherever you fancy?
The Shiatsu style of massage that the MD-50230A replicates works on the intensity of pressures applied. The finger and thumb massage technique is duplicated through the use of rollers and airbags. Due to this, some find the Shiatsu massage a bit too much to handle. The motor to this unit is very powerful and even on the lowest strength setting, it is still quite forceful.
Only you can decide if the style suits you. However, no one can dispute the positive effects of having a Shiatsu massage. After removing your feet from a massage session in the comfortable, linen lined socks, we are certain you will be more than satisfied with how refreshed you feel.
Well, thanks for sticking with us and reading through our Nursal MD-50230A review. We hope it has given you food for thought as to whether this is the perfect option for your particular needs.
