Is there a better feeling in the world than sinking tired feet into a pool of hot bubbling water after a long day or a tough workout? Yes, it’s sinking tired feet into a pool of hot bubbling water in the comfort of your own home – and all you need is a portable foot spa.
In fact, many models go beyond simple relaxation and pleasure. With features like aromatherapy and infrared lights, some manufacturers claim these foot spas can help relieve inflammation and actively soothe aching muscles.
But picking the right product can be a challenge: a lot of foot spas promise all sorts of benefits only to deliver lukewarm water and a few soap suds. To help you, we’ve run the rule over a range of models to highlight the best ones you can buy right now.
Hangsun Foot Spa And Massager FM200
If you only want to dip your metaphorical and monetary toe in the water, but want more than a bare bones experience, try this feature-rich foot spa and massager. The vibration massage, red light therapy, magnetic therapy and oxygen bubble massage features can be combined and the rollers at the base of the unit provide an effective massage and the spa can be used with Epsom salts if desired. It doesn’t maintain water temperature as well as other models on this list but it’s a solid budget option.

A foot spa is a wonderful thing, but a foot spa with a built-in aromatherapy filter is even better. The Beurer FB35 has a container to fill with bath salts and aromatherapy crystals, said to help inflammation. Your feet will certainly smell nicer at the very least. The spa also offers three massage functions – vibration, bubble and reflex zone – and comes with an infrared light setting to boost circulation, as well as straightforward temperature controls.

HoMedics Foldaway Luxury Foot Spa FB350
If you’re pushed for storage space or want to travel with your foot spa, this collapsible model is an excellent choice. And don’t think that means it’s small and forces you to squeeze your feet in – it’s comfortably roomy when up and running. The bumpy “acu-nodes” on the base are effective at soothing sore feet, while the vibration massage setting focuses on acupressure points. There’s a spout for easy emptying and the water stays warm for long periods. It’s a little on the noisy side and the cable is pretty short, but these are small inconveniences if you’re looking for an easy-to-use compact option.
Buy from Boots | £39.99 (RRP £49.99)
This luxury model offers everything you could want from a foot spa: massage rollers, vibration settings, bubbles and even dry massage, with three pedicure attachments included. One of its stand-out features is its ability to heat up water and keep it warm, rather than having to pre-fill it with hot water, and there’s also a timer so you don’t get carried away and end up too pruney. The brush and pumice stone ensure your feet are as soft as they are relaxed.

Rio Deluxe Foot Spa And Massager
While foot spas can be hugely relaxing, they can also be beneficial for people suffering from conditions like arthritis. The reflexology rollers at the base of this Rio Deluxe unit work on key pressure points, while the vibrations and hydrotherapy jet massage work wonders on anyone’s sore, tired feet. This foot spa is just the ticket if you want to relieve pain and stiffness without compromising on an all-round spa experience.
