I was given my VisiQ Bubble Foot Spa as a gift from my husband about two years ago after he complained that I was always moaning about my aching feet and legs. This cost at the time about £13 but as it was a gift I wasn’t supposed to ‘know’ the price, however, I did see the receipt he left lying around.
This is a fantastic contraption though I admit to not having used it in a while as I just seem to never have the time these days. It has three functions consisting of bubble, heat and massage and they are all wonderful. It’s really simple and easy to use as the control functions are clear to read and understand. There is a control knob and four settings and a fantastic massager that works by a rolling ball right in the centre – this is the best bit for me, personally.
When I first used this appliance I was a bit confused as I was under the impression that it actually heated the water for me. In actual fact, it doesn’t. I have to heat the water first to the desired temperature then once switched on, this appliance will maintain the heat of the water for me while I use it.
It makes a bit of a noise while it’s working but not so much that I have to turn the volume of the TV up or anything like that. The instructions say you shouldn’t use it for any longer than 10 minutes per day though it doesn’t say why, and to be honest I use it a lot longer than that and it doesn’t seem to have done me any harm.
It’s a totally relaxing and pampering experience submerging my feet in the warm water and I like to add oils and specialised foot gels to really give myself a good pamper. Writing this review has now made me think I should really use this again this evening, as I have missed using it lately.
It’s easy to clean out afterwards and I simply wipe over and leave to dry naturally, making sure of course, that the appliance is switched off first and that it’s been left to cool down.
It’s a wonderful way to pamper yourself at home and for what it does I think it’s a really good reasonable price.
I got mine from a charity shop and although sealed as new, when we first filled it with water it just leaked all over the carpet.I appreciate from a charity shop one has to be careful and we do not know how it has been treated, but it has not been used, still sealed etc etc so would not expect it to leak.I wonder if there could be a design fault waiting to happen so be careful especially with all that electricity.
There are many brands of foot massagers and spas on the market but if like me you sometimes have to stick to a budget then this may just be the product for you.
It consists of 3 soothing combinations of
There is a rolling ball massager in the center of the spa along with a splash guard at the front.

Bubble / Heat
The heat function is a bit misleading because this particular model does not actually heat the water but it maintains the heat of the water if you have used warm water in the spa..
It is recommended that you should not use this massager for any longer than 10 - 15 minutes in any one session..You are allowed to use it once or twice daily though..
To clean the foot bath after use you clean with water , a damp cloth and a mild detergent never use a harsh detergent in it..
Never submerge the unit in water but that is common sense
The foot bath can also be used dry to give a dry massage.
To store the unit you must wait till the unit has fully cooled down and is dry,
Make sure the cord is wrapped loosely and not tightly coiled round the unit and store in a dry place..
As with any massaging product there are certain cautions that everyone should be aware of :-
You should never use this product if you have any of the following
Benign and/or Malignant Tumors
Inflammation of the skin
Phlebitis and Thrombosis
Open and fresh wounds
Undetermined calf pain or Joint pain
You should also not use if you have any unexplained pain or swollen muscles..
If you have had a serious muscular injury then you must consult a physician before attempting to use this.
Discontinue use if you experience any pain or swelling after use..
The cost of this was £12.99 from Argos and it was bought as a gift for me. As many of you moms and hard workers out there you know your feet are the second most important part of your body..I mean how many miles a day do they carry you???
Many of us spend endless hours on our feet which results in tired aching feet.
I used this for 10 minutes and was totally amazed at how light my feet felt after just one use.They felt like i had been given a full pedicure.They felt so much softer and walking felt so nice after no heavy tired feet but it was like floating on air..
I would not be with out mine now..
Any one can spare 10 minutes out of there busy lives surely to remember the 2 most important things in your lives ? ?
You have to remember if it wasn't for your poor feet then you wouldn't have the ability to maintain those busy lives that you lead.
Many of you pamper your selves with fine wines and chocolate so pamper your tootsies they deserve it ! ! !
You would be amazed how it helps the circulation in your feet.
I found after the birth of my last child that my feet ached so badly they were always cold and looked like they were tinged with blue..Since using this they look and feel better..
I am no doctor so please do not quote me on anything i have said these are my personal opinions and experiences
For £12.99 you can't go wrong
I got this foot massager as a present at Christmas. The machine itself is quite plain looking compared to some of the fancy ones you get on the market. It is priced at around 20 pounds and is worth every penny!!
It has 3 setting heat,bubbles and massage. The heat option is great as it keeps the water heated up which is great as some of the older models didnt have this option which meant you had to keep jumping up to add hot water or you just left it to go cold.
This device is perfect for when you have sore feet from walking around or for when you want to treat your partner to a luxury pedicure or vice versa.
After asking and not getting one of these for 3 Christmasses running, I thought i would buy one myself! I managed to buy one at Argos in the sale at 15 quid (usually 20) ~ I had never heard of this company before i bought this, and i must say, it's very well built. (if not a little heavy) There are bubbles, massage and heat or a mixture of any 3, (however, i find bubbles + heat is just about right) The massage part is basically little raised nodules about 1cm round by 1/2cm high ~ not too uncomfortable. You will need to put a towel on the floor underneath this spa, because even with the 'splash guard' a few drops of water do manage to escape! ~ Also if you're not very strong, it can be a bit of a pain to fill it too (unless you want a foot spa in the kitchen sink!) What i would suggest is to get yourself ready with a big bottle of wine, a good book and get your other half to fill it up for you! ~ if no significant other, you'll need to fill 'er up yourself! (i use a large saucepan when bf is not around) The temperature stays constant throughout the 20-30 minutes I use it for, and even in the warm weather we've had lately, it's still relaxing. You could try some aromatherapy oils in there too, but make sure you buy these from a proper 'herbal' shop and tell them if you are preggers or suffer from any other ailments ~ just in case. It does state in the Argos book that you should not use it if you are Diabetic - i wonder why? Beleive me ~ this is a Christmas pressie you'll use again and again :-)
