Zeel Launches On-Demand Sports Massage

July 2015

NEW YORK, July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Zeel, The Massage Experts® who brought Massage On Demand® to cities across the US, announces the launch of on-demand sports massage. Sports massage joins the growing list of available massage types offered by Zeel, including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, prenatal massage, and couples massage.

Sports massage combines several popular massage techniques to enhance athletic performance and help the body recover from activity. These include Swedish massage (to improve blood circulation and oxygenation), deep tissue massage (to target and break up muscle knots and tissue adhesions), and assisted stretching (to improve flexibility and reduce stress on joints). According to the American Massage Therapy Association, regular sports massage can reduce muscle tension, improve performance, increase range of motion, decrease soreness and pain after activity, decrease the chance of exercise-related injury, and promote focus and relaxation.

"Sports massage is crucial to being healthy and active, whether you're a professional athlete or a weekend warrior," said Zeel founder and CEO Samer Hamadeh. "We are proud to bring the many benefits of sports massage, from our vetted, licensed, and experienced Zeel Massage Therapists, to our customers."

Zeel Sports Massage, like all Zeel Massage techniques, can be booked through the Zeel app for iPhone and Android and on zeel.com, and is available for start times as early as 8 am and as late as 10:30 pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. All Zeel Massage Therapists are fully vetted and licensed in their state of practice. Early fans of Zeel Sports Massage include Twilight Saga star and noted workout enthusiast Kellan Lutz, who said via his Instagram, "Just got the best sports massage while on my beach vacation! Thank you @GetZeel for existing!"
