Service Providers



Zeel harnesses technology to reliably deliver same-day, on-demand wellness services via our proprietary app for iPhone and Android, web site, and mobile site. Our first service offering is Massage On Demand®, launched April 2, 2013.

Massage On Demand® is growing at nearly 50% monthly in 1st test market (NYC) and disrupting the $15B US and $80B global massage market.

Our Zeel apps allow customers to get same-day massage in the privacy of home, hotel, or office in as little as an hour. They choose between a soothing Swedish and invigorating deep tissue massage. Customers pay a set price (including tax & tip), charged to their credit card on file. All therapists are handpicked and vetted in person, licensed in their state of practice, insured (minimum of $1M), and deliver superior massage experiences (or they don’t stay in the network). Therapists access appointments and see payments via a proprietary app that tracks their availability and location via GPS technology.

It’s a little like magic, thanks to our talented programmers, “zeelous” customer service reps and passionate ops team.

In September 2013, Zeel launched Massage Zeelot, the first-ever same-day, on-demand massage subscription service. Customers receive at least one in-home, on-demand Zeel Massage per month at a preferred rate, along with a free professional-grade massage table, theirs to keep. Because Zeelots have tables, Zeel Massage Therapists quickly arrive to soothe and unwind them.
