Maybe you woke up with a pinched nerve and can barely get out of bed. Or maybe you have exactly one free hour in your day?not enough time to travel to the spa and back. These are just a few great reasons to use Zeel, an app that allows you to book and prepay for a same-day massages in your own home, hotel, or other locations in as little as an hour's notice. After specifying type and length of service (and therapist gender, if you wish), Zeel dispatches an excellent massage therapist from its network of licensed, vetted, and insured practitioners. Therapists can perform a variety of modalities, ranging from Swedish, to deep-tissue, to prenatal. Not only is it convenient, but it can also be more relaxing than treating your massage like just another errand, especially if you play your own music or already live in a spa. The app has already seen tons of press since its 2013 release, making fans of editors at Vogue, the Wall Street Journal, and Men's Journal.
