Things to look for in a foot spa

Heat: Choosing a foot spa with heating will elevate your experience and also heighten the therapeutic effect. Look out for different temperature levels, and make sure the model you choose is designed to maintain heat all throughout the session.

Size: Overall size is an important consideration if you have larger feet, but also be sure to opt for a foot spa with enough depth to fully submerge your feet in the water.

Massage rollers: Ideally, you want as many rollers per foot as possible for the best effect.

Extras: Some foot spas will come fully equipped with pedicure kit accessories including a nail cleaner, toe separators and more. Also, look out for extra attachments such as a pumice stone, to completely elevate your foot spa experience.
