The return of the summer sun brings with it hundreds of music festivals across the country. Zeel is thrilled to be part of the festival buzz, recently featured on Shannah Game’s “Millennial Money” podcast as one of the best apps to manage wellness during the festival season.
Festival season kicked off in a big way in April, with the world-famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California. Zeel was at Coachella helping festival-goers relax, recharge, and refuel with Zeel Massages.
To help listeners prepare for the concert circuit, Shannah Game and her husband Jeff of Millennial Money released a podcast on the Lifestyle Thursday series featuring their picks for the best mobile apps for music festival attendees. Zeel made the cut, along with other top apps like Waze, Shazam, and Airbnb.
“It’s a getaway. A nice way to relax, chill out, and they bring the massage therapist to you. How cool is that?”
Shannah acknowledges that in a crowd of thousands, your phone is your best friend when it comes to navigating crowds and keeping track of your belongings. Apps such as Zeel can make festival life even more enjoyable, before and after the show.
A few reasons Zeel is a worthy companion for festival goers:
- You can enjoy quiet time for yourself after a long day of loud music and social overload. Massage provides a restorative escape to feel your best.
- After standing on your feet all day, dancing and walking around, a massage therapy session gives you a much needed physical break.
- If you’re going with a group, make your festival experience with your friends even more memorable by pampering yourselves with massages in the comfort of your hotel or Airbnb..
- Get more restful sleep, so you can party hard again tomorrow. Festivals are a powerhouse of energy — the high-intensity music, the bright costumes and stages, the moving crowds. Once the day is done, it can be hard to unwind and relax your body and mind. A sleep massage or even a traditional Swedish can help make this transition easier.
Budgeting and making savvy personal investments are frequent topics on Millennial Money, so when it comes to massage prices, Shannah stressed the importance of Zeel’s affordability compared to larger spas. “I find it hard to justify 150 dollars for a 50-minute massage,” she admits, in reference to franchise spas that use 10 minutes of your hour for consultation. Zeel, Shannah says, creates the ideal massage experience by giving you the satisfaction of longer massages at lower prices.
Beyond music festival season, if you’re like Shannah and are into jamming out in the comfort of your own home, having access to an app like Zeel is beneficial on a daily basis. The convenience of having a 5-star massage therapist delivered to your location is one of Shannah’s favorite parts about the massage on demand app. She advises listeners to always “make sure you’re using a reputable app like Zeel” when getting a massage at home, as Zeel’s 9,000 massage therapists are experienced, licensed, and insured.
Even homebodies with a Spotify account and a craving for massage therapy can make the most of the Zeel Massage app. “In any case, even if you’re not going to a festival, you’re going to want to have the Zeel app on your phone,” concludes Shannah.
“In any case, even if you’re not going to a festival, you’re going to want to have the Zeel app on your phone.”
