New luxury service pampers busy Houstonians with on-demand massage at home or office
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 Houston this week. The New York-based company, now available in 37 cities, caters to the busy bees of the world. With Zeel's Houston 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 anywhere in the Houston metro area 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 in the Houston area start at $105 for a 60-minute massage, with tip included. (All Zeel Massages automatically add an 18 percent gratuity, so there’s no need to have cash on hand.) All transactions are made online or through the app. There's also a monthly membership, Massage Zeelot, which grants you one massage credit per month, plus a free at-home massage table. Members save over 15 percent on all Zeel Massages and credits roll over, never expire, and can be used to buy gift cards for others.
