zeel logoNEW YORK — Zeel, the Massage On Demand company and national wellness provider, has announced a new monthly giving program, Zeel Gives Back. The initiative will gift chair massages to the staff of service programs and organizations helping people in need.

“At Zeel, bringing wellness relief to people in need is essential to our core mission,” says Zeel founder and CEO Samer Hamadeh. “We want to help the helpers — refueling those who work hard to serve their communities with the healing benefits of massage. Massage reduces stress, pain, muscle tension and creates a moment of relaxation — it’s our way of giving back to those who give so much to others.”

With the new initiative, Zeel will sponsor one day of chair massage for a different service organization each month. Zeel launched the campaign on November 8 at The Lavelle School for the Blind in the Bronx, New York, providing the 100+ teachers, physical therapists, social workers and counselors with an afternoon of complimentary massages.

“Our staff are unsung heroes, and having the massage therapists from Zeel celebrate and support them means everything,” says Rebecca Renshaw, PhD, Executive Director at The Lavelle School for the Blind. “Stress is a natural consequence of daily life, but particularly when working a physically and emotionally demanding job. Having therapeutic massage on-site makes everyone feel valued, appreciated and cared for. Our staff give so much to the community and it’s nice to see them honored in this way.”

In December, the company will focus its efforts on an organization helping the victims of the California wildfires. Customers and community members are encouraged to nominate an organization to receive massage through Zeel Gives Back by emailing givesback@zeel.com.
