This past weekend, Prisila became the first Zeel Massage Therapist (ZMT) to complete 1,000 Zeel Massage appointments! To celebrate, we asked Prisila a few questions about her experience with Zeel.
A former track athlete with an undying love of sports, licensed massage therapist Prisila is also a personal trainer with over 10 years of experience. Prisila attended Western Michigan University on a track scholarship, where she was a member of a championship-winning 4 x 400 relay team. Prisila’s knowledge of exercise and its impact on the body gives her a deeper understanding of Zeel customers’ physical needs. The result? “Clients really feel the difference in my work,” she says, which may include a number of bodywork modalities. Some of them are myofascial, shiatsu, Swedish and deep tissue.
Z: What do you enjoy about working with Zeel?
P: I’ve worked for numerous companies – 5 star companies –and Zeel happens to be the best one I’ve worked for. Zeel really is considerate and kind. And that goes a long way. When you work with people who appreciate your work, it makes you want to work harder.
Z: What made you decide to become a Zeel Massage Therapist?
P: I saw an advertisement on Facebook and I was curious. I signed up three years ago – since that time, Zeel has grown to be a fabulous app, and it’s really great for business. I’m so much more productive in acquiring more clients. It’s just fabulous!
Z: Have you changed as a massage therapist since joining Zeel?
P: Yes. I like to think that I’m stronger. A couple years ago, when I worked for a spa, that was tough. I was expected to perform massages back-to-back-to-back.
To commute with a table adds a whole other level. Still, I would rather work for Zeel any day than go back to working at a spa. It’s more autonomous. It just makes life so much more interesting, going to all these different places.
Z: Any funny Zeel stories?
P: There was one job I was on – it was a couples massage – and their dog was licking my heels. I was SO ticklish and I was trying so hard not to laugh. It was torture!
Z: How will you celebrate your thousandth Zeel Massage?
P: I think I’ll take the day off and go to Florida [laughs]…a last minute trip!
Enjoy Florida, Prisila! You deserve it. Congratulations on your 1,000th Zeel Massage!
