We spent dozens of hours researching and comparing the best back massagers and foot massagers – including footbaths, chair massagers, shiatsu massagers and all-around body massagers – evaluating the size, weight, versatility, technique, features, modes and portability of each. Based on our research, we think the best overall massager for most people is the cordless PADO PureWave CM7 because of its versatility and battery life. If you’re looking for a full-body massage chair, one of the best options is the RealRelax Favor-03. It has features typically found in much more expensive models. Since there are so many types of massagers to choose from, you'll want to think about which type will work best for you before you decide what to buy.
