Foot rollers are designed to activate acupuncture points along the bottom of the feet to relieve soreness and tension. Simply sit in a comfortable seat and move your feet — one at a time, or together — back and forth on top of the foot roller. Rollers are made out of wood, foam, plastic, or rubber. Some are able to be heated or cooled, and certain models come with a battery-powered vibrating function for extra massaging effect. They are usually used at home but are small enough to be transported on trips or brought to the gym for post-workout relief. Regular foot massages are said to improve overall circulation, as well. Prices range from $9 to $24.
