New luxury service pampers busy Austinites with on-demand massage
With unique beauty services like Priv and beGlammed, pampering yourself has never been easier, especially with a hectic schedule. Now you can go beyond skin deep with Zeel, an on-demand massage service that swept into Austin this week. The New York-based company, now available in 25 cities, caters to the busy bees of the world. With Zeel's Austin launch, there's no need to squeeze in a trip to the spa. One of Zeel's massage therapists can make a visit to your home or workplace at a time that works best for you. Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, sports, couples, and chair massages are available in 60-, 75-, and 90-minute sessions. Appointments can be made seven days a week between 8 am and 10:30 pm. Book online or through the mobile app: Just designate your time, place, and gender preference. Each massage therapist is "fully vetted, experienced, background-checked, and licensed," assures Zeel. Massages start at $105; the exact price is determined by location, length, and availability. There's also a monthly membership, Massage Zeelot, which grants you one massage credit per month. All transactions are made online or through the app — including the tip — making relaxing easier than ever before.
