We are honored to have been chosen for this award. When Jeffrey Spratt,MT, Owner and Principal began his business 5 years ago, his dream was to have a massage therapy practice where clients would be able to reclaim their advantage and reclaim their life through the power of positive, quality, innovative touch. Jeffrey asked himself a critical question as a massage therapist: "What could I come up with that would change the massage therapy experience for a client and would value their time and money?” The ShakeOutTM Massage was born out of techniques used in chiropractic medicine, Jeffrey's work with athletes and his study of Eastern mind/body modalities. He discovered the importance of the need to get the whole body moving and quickly assessed from the moment the treatment begins. Through his work with Emergency Responders and a trauma survivor in his private practice, he realized that this method was effective in trauma recovery!
The journey hasn't always been easy. Jeffrey choose a career where he is a male in a primarily female dominated career. There is a high burnout rate in the profession. He had to remind himself over and over again to be true to himself and not "sell out" by the pressure to have a spa massage therapy practice. Jeffrey was blessed to receive continuous affirmations for the pioneering work he developed. He realized that his unique method of muscular therapy was critical and vital to so many clients. He is honored and humbled that his staff have embraced his method and give him feedback and ideas to continue the evolution of the work. His desire and passion to help people and work with the human body kept him in the massage therapy game now for over 15 years! Jeffrey always knew that there was a higher purpose and calling and believed in himself to not cow tow to the norms of the profession.
In Jeffrey's words, "I was fortunate enough to have success happen; affirmations kept coming and I kept changing lives. Opportunities kept presenting themselves. I always knew there was a higher purpose and a higher calling. I knew I had to set my own mark. One of my friends said to me, 'God blesses the entrepreneur with ignorance because if they knew what they were getting into, they would never start.' I had a sound foundation for my vision of Spratt Muscular Therapies but did not have the nuances and the knack. In my 3rd year, things looked their bleakest. I wasn't sure what direction to go in. I went back to basics. I trusted the work and I trusted myself. One of our favorite mantras at Spratt Muscular Therapies is, 'Don't quit before the miracle happens!' We are so glad we did not give up!"
Winning the American Small Business Championship is going to give us access to a wealth of resources to help grow our business while serving the community of Emergency Responders, Veterans and Civilian trauma survivors. The prizes, training, publicity and SCORE mentoring we have been awarded will help us take Spratt Muscular Therapies to the next level and better serve our clients.
