It’s official; I found the ideal Sunday night set up. After a weekend full of aerial, hot yoga, and hiking, my body was in need of some major R&R. Enter: Zeel.
Just like Uber for rides, Fitspot for personal training, and GlamSquad for blowouts, Zeel brings a massage therapist right to your doorstep. Whether you’re at home, staying the night in a hotel, or need a break from your desk job, Zeel is at your service.
Simply open the app and request an appointment. From a relaxing Swedish massage, to a targeted deep tissue massage, or a sports massage perfect for sore muscles, you can choose to unwind solo or as a couple.
The app also allows you to clarify if you prefer a male or female masseuse and offers three durations: 60, 75, and 90 minutes.
Once you’ve provided your info, time frame availability, and payment, you simply press book! An 18% tip is already included in the price so there’s no need to stress about cash or do any mental math in your state of bliss.
A few minutes after booking I was sent a confirmation text with my time and therapist details and then confirmed via the app. In order to be approved for your first appointment, you must verify either the last four digits of your SSN or take a pic of your ID to prove you’re legit and help ensure the safety of the therapist.
My massage was set for 8:00 pm so I lit some candles, poured myself a glass of wine, and started winding down. When my therapist, Marisol, arrived I had two sheets and pillowcase ready. If you don’t have sheets, let them know ahead of time and they will provide for a small fee.
After setting up the table, she headed into my bathroom while I got undressed and under the sheet. She turned off the lights and played some soft, soothing music through her speaker as I spent 75 minutes experiencing pure relaxation. Marisol was so kind and professional and I soon forgot that I was in my own living room and not a five-star spa.
Once time ended, Marisol excused herself so I could get dressed. She then quickly packed up the equipment and said goodbye (ok, fine, after we sat on the couch and I showed her my wedding album…but I’m a weirdo). Instead of heading out into traffic and finding my way home, the only movement I had to do was refill my glass and get cozy on the couch. It was absolutely MAGICAL!
Zeel Massage On Demand is available in Boston, Chicago, the SF Bay Area, Southern California, South Florida, and the NYC Tri-State Area – with additional locations coming soon.
