Zeel Launches Spa Staffing Division

Zeel, the largest in-home massage company with more than 7,000 massage therapists nationwide, has launched Zeel Spa, a staffing solution for spas. Using the Zeel Spa platform, spas, salons, and hotels can book a licensed, vetted Zeel massage therapist to fill vacant appointments due to last-minute staff absences. The new platform also helps spas increase their existing staff during periods of high demand. Zeel already has more than 70 spas and hotels in 20 U.S. cities using the Zeel Spa platform for staffing. To use the platform, spas need to first sign up and then can start scheduling Zeel massage therapists right away, for start times as little as an hour in advance. Spa directors also have the option of booking one or more Zeel massage therapists for a period of up to 8 hours, which is called a Block Project. “Since we created and launched Massage On Demand, the goal for Zeel has been powering massage everywhere,” says founder and CEO Samer Hamadeh. “As the leading company providing in-home massage to customers, we have an extensive network consisting of the best massage therapists. Zeel Spa creates more opportunities for those massage therapists and also helps make the overall spa massage industry stronger, more flexible, and more efficient. Spas no longer need to turn away business or disappoint customers because of last-minute staff absences or spikes in customer demand. They can even expand their hours of operation and increase revenue by adding more appointment slots.”

Founded in 2010, Zeel made its mark in the massage industry with the introduction of Massage On Demand in 2012, which made it the first company to bring same-day, in-home massages to customers. The new Zeel Spa platform is part of the larger Zeel Professional platform, which includes Zeel Corporate Wellness and Zeel Concierge. Zeel’s Corporate Wellness Program delivers licensed, vetted massage therapists to events, conferences, and workplaces, while Zeel Concierge empowers staff at hotels without an in-house massage offering to book spa massages for their guests for delivery to hotel rooms in as little as an hour. “Our partnership with Zeel has been great,” says Sofi Venezuela, assistant spa director at Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa (NY). “We’re now able to accommodate all of our hotel and day guests. Zeel Spa helps us to be more flexible, allowing us to offer more massage services at busier times. We get great feedback about the Zeel massage therapists, and the Zeel customer service team is great to work with. They’re very quick in responding to all our last-minute requests.”
