This is not the post I planned for tomorrow, but I had to stop the presses this evening because I just experienced a life changer. I want to preface this by saying that this is not a sponsored post, I am simply sold on this on demand beauty service you need in your life right now. I am a huge fan of massages because they provide endless health and well-being benefits, and they just make me feel amazing. But as a busy working mom of two baby boys, scheduling a massage as often as I really should presents two big challenges. I have to arrange for childcare, and after a deep tissue rub, I often feel so fatigued that the rest of my day is shot. I’ve tried booking them as late as possible, but because spa’s are not open very late, this often means I still have to do the ever-exhausting bedtime routine right after my treatment when I am feeling like all I want to do is sleep.
For Mother’s Day, my husband booked an in-home massage for me via Zeel. It’s an on-demand app and website through which you can book a licensed and vetted massage therapist to come to your office or home or wherever to give you a treatment for less than what you would pay at most spas in as little as an hour. Best of all, if you sign up for recurring massage treatments, you’ll get a 15% discount for every massage. Even better, you can book a massage as late as 10:30 pm, so you can skip a sitter and get a massage in the comfort of your own home after the kids go to sleep and then crawl right into bed.
The massage therapist comes equipped with their own massage table if you don’t have one, and all you need is two sheets and a pillow case. I was concerned that the portable table would not be comfortable, but it was actually better than many tables I’ve experienced at high end spas. I also loved knowing the sheets were super clean because they were my own, and I really liked being able to manage my own playlist. Also awesome: you’re supporting independent contractors who are able to create their own schedules. It’s a win all around.
Now If you’ll excuse me, I’m about the have the best nights sleep I’ve had in weeks.
