NEW YORK, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Zeel, the Massage On Demand® company, announces Eva Carey as the company's New Jersey Regional Manager, starting March 24. Carey is responsible for launching and growing Zeel's operations in New Jersey.

"We're delighted to welcome Eva Carey to the Zeel team," said Samer Hamadeh, founder and CEO of Zeel. "Her 25+ years of experience in massage therapy and education, along with her focus on mentoring and guiding massage therapists, will be an enormous benefit to Zeel in New Jersey as well as our national operations, including our expansion plans."

"I'm very excited to join the Zeel team to provide on-demand massage in New Jersey," said Carey. "I'm impressed with Zeel's development of its mobile technology and commitment to providing top-quality massages to more people, while valuing and rewarding professionally-trained massage therapists."

Carey was previously president of the Hoboken campus of Cortiva Institute, the largest network of massage schools in the country. Carey was brought on as president for the campus when it was established in 2010, presiding over 250 graduates in that position.

At Cortiva Institute, Carey oversaw all campus management as well as marketing, recruitment of faculty, staff and students, regulatory compliance, placement of graduates, and community outreach. The Cortiva Institute is a member of the Steiner Education Group (SEG), which operates massage therapy and skin care schools at 31 locations in 14 states.
