One of the things I miss most about our trip to Bangkok was the foot massage services. I remember how happy Mell and I were when we found this little foot massage place at Chatuchak after 3-4 hours of continuous walking. For 150 baht, we got our legs taken care of by the ladies for a good half an hour, and walk away later totally rejuvenated, it was a total bliss.

Mell clearly enjoyed the foot massage service

Back home, while spas and massage places exists, their fees are usually high enough that it is a luxury I cannot afford. Then there’s also the worry that I might accidentally step into one of those dodgy places that I might not know how to handle, and one that Mell won’t take well.

So you can imagine my elation when I was contacted to conduct this review on the new OSIM uSqueez Warm. Finally my very own leg massage machine, sweet!

OSIM uSqueez Warm

So a couple weeks ago I went to OSIM’s office at PJ and was given a rather comprehensive briefing on the benefit of this product as well as a full demo on how exactly to operate it.

uSqueez Warm, as the name suggests, adds an option of providing warm air to your feet that the previous model lacks. The warmth is supposed to help release tension, allevate aches and release soreness to the muscles. On top of that, the higher temperature help flushes out lactic acid especially after sports sessions or a super long shopping trip (does not release financial tension resulting from the said shopping trip).

As far as the massage part goes, there is the roller contacting the bottom of your feet that simulates the push and release technique by reflexologists. And of course, as the name suggests, there is also the wrap-around squeezing motion that massages the calves, ankles, and the feet all at the same time. This comes in three different settings, firm, rhythmic, or smooth.

ahhh, this is the perfect zen moment

The one other function I did not expect was the “Turbo Vibration Massage”. The machine basically vibrates and shakes the bottom of the feet in a horizontal motion (3 intensities). After running through the vibration process you actually feel a gush of blood flowing from the bottom of the feet back up to the calf region. A very surreal feeling. This is suppose to break down toxin accumulated at the bottom of your feet and improve circulation. I know it really does feel good.

So, if you aren’t getting your own OSIM uSqueez yet, I can provide the service right here for a small fee. After all, where else can you have your legs massaged facing a beautiful home made koi pond?
