I read the recent story we did in Cincy Chic about Zeel, an on-demand massage service now available in Cincinnati through a free app, so I decided to check it out for myself.
Here's a little excerpt from the article that sums it up well: “Zeel is the leading and largest on-demand massage provider with over 10,000 licensed massage therapists serving over 80 US cities, explains Zeel.com Public Relations Director Jillian Sanders. “With best-in-class security protocols, Zeel offers on-demand, at-home massage in as little as an hour, 365 days a year, with start times as early as 8 am and as late at 10:30 pm.”
At 9 months pregnant, everything hurts right now, so a massage sounds amazing. But with two kids and a husband with a weird schedule (he has to be at work really early so he goes to bed at 6pm and gets up at 1am), getting out of the house for a massage at a spa is getting increasingly more difficult.
Knowing I was going to have a long day at work the other day, I decided to download the Zeel app and see if I could get a massage therapist to come on my lunch break. It was super easy -- you just put in some basic info about yourself, and then select the day, time, location (office, home, friend's house, etc), type of massage (deep tissue, prenatal, couples, etc) and gender preference for your massage therapist and then you confirm it. It took about 15 minutes and then I got a notification that a massage therapist had been booked, gave me her name, and some details to prepare my space for the massage. Easy peasy.
A few minutes later, I got a text from my massage therapist introducing herself and giving me her contact info in case I needed to reach her for anything prior to the massage, and also letting me know when she'd be there to start setting up the room for my massage.
Come lunchtime, my therapist arrived, I got an amazing massage and felt like a new woman for the rest of the day. It was seriously awesome. Plus, I really liked that the tip and everything is included in the original booking price that you pay through the app, so there's no trying to awkwardly find cash at the end of your massage.
I actually just ordered another Zeel massage a couple nights ago to my house -- after the hubby went to sleep and I got the girls down for bed, my massage therapist arrived and I got another amazing massage. I feel like I've cracked some mom code where I figured out how to get my beloved (and much-needed) spa days back! haha!
