The Tsubo Foot Massager will rub your feet at the end of a long day


Life would be grand if we had a personal chef to cook us healthy meals and a massage therapist on call to rub out the stresses of the day that follow us home. Of course, that would require making a lot of money to keep up with the expenses of paying those people a living wage. Since not too many of us are made of money, we have to find ways to keep ourselves fed and relaxed without paying an arm and a leg.

While doing yoga and drinking tea will probably reduce your blood pressure, it won’t take the ache out of your feet like the Tsubo Foot Massager could. It looks like two cork screws joined at the base, but will untie the knots in your feet without much work from you. You simply put this on the floor, and roll it under your feet, working through your tired muscles with the help of gravity.

This is available in mocha and black, though you’ll probably just want to get the darkest color possible so you can’t tell how gross it’s getting the more you use it. Made of a sturdy elastomer, it should hold up under vigorous rolling, but you probably don’t want to try standing on this. It’ll only cost you $20, and would likely be a good pair with a foot bath to relax your muscles even further. Since your feet support the entirety of your body, it’s a good idea to keep them in as good a shape as possible.
