Massage On Demand!
Have you ever wanted a massage, but don’t even have enough energy (or mobility) to schedule one at a spa? What if I told you, you could have a professional massage therapist scheduled to come straight to your home or office all through an easy-peasy app on your phone? Am I talking your language now? I thought so! Let me introduce you to Zeel, the first app that allows you to schedule a licensed massage therapist to your location in as quick as an hour.
I get regular migraines, and the other day I had a doozy! I thought about calling my regular massage therapist at my chiropractor’s office, but it was too late in the evening, and too last-minute to schedule anyway. Then I remembered, the good folks at Zeel had given me a coupon code to try Zeel out. If I liked it, I would tell you guys about my experience. Perfect timing!
All you need to do is have an iPhone or Android and download the app, choose the type of massage you are looking for (Swedish, deep tissue, sports, prenatal, chair or couples massage) and follow the prompts for your subsequent choices. Male or female, place and time, and any special requests that a therapist would need to know in advance.
After designing the perfect massage, Zeel sends you a confirmation of day, time and a photo of the therapist you can expect to meet.
It was around 5:30, so I scheduled a massage around 6. I got a text message saying I would need two sheets and a pillow case. Check. The gal, Carrie, who did my massage could not have been more friendly and knowledgeable. She set up her massage bed (we just needed a space around 10’x5′ (less than that was fine actually), so we did the massage in the living room, and I just had her help me move my coffee table out of the way. I told her I have fibromyalgia and sensitive areas, and she was very careful not to go too deep too fast. The massage was great, and I never had to put on makeup or get dressed or drive anywhere (I was slumming it in shorts and a t-shirt)! Fantastic – especially when you’ve got a Class A migraine!
One thing I really liked is that Zeel does background checks on the therapists, but they also do
them ID checks on the customers. You only have to type in your SSN or scan your driver’s license (it’s quick and painless). But, I love that this protects the therapists too.
After having the massage, the app automatically charges your credit card so there is no cash exchange in person, making for safe and easy transactions that already include the tip. If you like the therapist, you can rate them (my therapist got all the stars!).
If you LOVE the service (who wouldn’t?), you can become a “Massage Zeelot” and get a massage every month for a special price (normally the massages start at $99, but with the Zeelot monthly membership program, you can get them for $84 each):
- Includes credit for a massage a month for 12 months
- Massage credits never expire
- Receive your very own massage table
- Additional massages booked at special low Zeelot rate
- Share Zeelot massages and pricing with others
Zeel in Home Massage is available in several locations across the US, such as southern California, San Francisco area, the greater NYC area, and several other areas sprinkled across the U.S. I suggest you download the app to see if a therapist is close to you!
