Need a massage? Tap this app, now available in Washington

A deep tissue or Swedish massage from a professional in your home or office is an app tap away, now that Zeel has added the Washington metro to its service. Zeel, which launched its massage-on-demand service in New York in 2012, is now available in 12 cities. Costs in the Washington metro start at around $100 to $110, plus tip. Zeel says its massage therapists are fully vetted, experienced at the finest establishments, and licensed. It says it has nearly 5,000 massage therapists in its network nationwide, including more than 100 in the Washington area, "and growing quickly," Zeel says. Therapists get, on average, about 75 percent of the cost of each session. Zeel massage options include Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, sports and couples massages, for 60, 75 and 90-minute sessions. The therapists bring their own massage tables and spa music. The Zeel app is available for both iPhone and Android. Here’s the Zeel website for more information.
