Being active is important for your health and lifestyle but there is a downside of all that fitness fun: It puts a beating on your feet, ankles and calves.
Even when it's the kind of soreness that "hurts so good," it still, well, hurts. All of which is to say: We need relief! And Amazon is here to help.
The King Fit Foot and Leg Massager is a miracle worker that massages, kneads and heats stressed, seized-up muscles and joints. Powerful, versatile and gentle when it needs to be, it's like treating your south-of-the-torso self to a spa day...all from the comfort of your living room. Speaking of treats: Amazon is now offering this genius machine for just $82 — that's a $58 markdown. By the way, Amazon has slashed the prices on a range of massagers just for today, but this is the deal you definitely don't want to miss.
The King Fit massager brings sweet relief to your feet, ankles and calves after a long day's work (or fun). It operates at three levels of intensity and three distinct settings: Sequence, Circulation and Whole Modes. There's something for every lower-body complaint.
No wonder it's garnered over 2,200 five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers. "These are the best for swollen legs and feet," a happy customer said. "The massaging action feels great, I can use all three levels of power, and sometimes treat myself to a couple 15 min sessions at a time. Easy to use the controller, and the results are worth the struggling into the leg cuffs. I prefer if someone helps me pull the leg cuffs up, but I can do it on my own. I use them in a recliner so that helps."
A fellow fan said that they can "finally sleep" after struggling with restless legs syndrome. "I’d try everything to stretching before bed, during the day, self massages and even sleeping on the couch with my legs up on the back rest to try to get some relief," they wrote. "THIS PRODUCT is my new LOVE! Feels wonderful and when I say it puts me to sleep? Man it puts me out! I love it!"
