Reclaim Advantage! Reclaim Life! From Humble Beginnings - Spratt Muscular Therapies - Five Years Later
Jeffrey Spratt,MT, Owner and Principal of Spratt Muscular Therapies, LLC posted this on Facebook on 5/11/16 from a Facebook memory on 5/11/11:
Hey! All of you in the Boston Metro area! I have now have office hours in Boston!! South Boston actually. At WAVE HEALTH and FITNESS in the Seaport Hotel across from the World Trade Center Boston. It's a great facility and awesome staff. And, of course, now you all can get table time in the city!
It began with humble beginnings where Jeffrey was providing chair massage in Seaport East. The head of Human Resources for the Seaport Boston Hotel got in his chair and knew at once that Jeffrey had a special gift. He was invited to bring his then solo practice to Wave Health and Fitness.
On 5/16/13, Jeffrey formed Spratt Muscular Therapies, LLC to bring together a co-operative of talented massage therapists who would embrace his innovative Spratt Method of Muscular Therapy and provide the highest quality massage therapy to Boston locals and visitors.
He began with one room and two other massage therapists. Since I joined his team as Communications and Public Relations Director in August of 2015, Spratt Muscular Therapies, LLC has grown to two rooms, an amazing all star Team of 7 therapists and comparing the first quarter of 2015 to our first quarter of 2016, our "sales" have increased by 35%.
What is so special about Jeffrey and Spratt Muscular Therapies you might ask....
It all begins with Jeffrey's belief about the power of positive touch:
After experiencing numerous unsatisfactory massage therapy sessions, Jeffrey asked himself, "So what could I come up with that would change the massage therapy experience for a client; where from the moment they are on the massage table they feel they are being attended to and as a massage therapist I could begin to get a real sense of what was needed to restore balance and bring relief."
From his experience as a massage therapist, experiences living in Asia and studying with a Shiatsu master, and influenced by his training in commercial aviation he pioneered the ShakeOut (TM) Massage and the Spratt Method of Muscular Therapy.
Jeffrey is so much more than a massage therapist, mentor and business owner. He is passionate about giving back to the community donating his time and talent to so many events, most recently at the Boston Bulldogs Running Club 5K Run for Recovery and Vigil:
The Bulldogs is a 501(3)c dedicated to helping all those affected by the disease of substance abuse disorder; those in recovery as well as family members and friends.
He is dedicated to caring for Emergency Responders, Active Duty Military, Veterans and their families providing special rates and through his work as part of the Critical Incident Stress Management Teams in Massachusetts.
During my 9+ years on my healing odyssey to find a way to reclaim my life after the devastating effects of paralytic polio and childhood violence, I experienced numerous massage therapists, physical therapists, body workers and energy healers. Jeffrey's touch expresses both commitment and compassion. He combines his powerful touch and intention to heal with his incredible skill in hypothesizing, heeding and listening to what the client's body is telling him and then figuring out what needs to happen to create positive momentum and change.
I used the phrase reclaim my life throughout my poetry, my memoir, "Coming Home: A Memoir of Healing Hope and Possibility" and "Journey Well" which I am revising to become the sequel to my memoir, "Going the Distance: Healing Trauma Through Running and the Power of Positive Touch." Jeffrey's tag line for Spratt Muscular Therapies is so much more than a tag line. It is the expression of his dedication as a therapist and mentor to ensure that every client who comes to Spratt Muscular Therapies experiences that they can reclaim their advantage and reclaim their life through the power of positive touch.
From humble beginnings, Spratt Muscular Therapies, LLC is now on the map and word is spreading about this innovative massage therapy practice located in the heart of Boston's Innovation District.
Happy Anniversary to Jeffrey and Spratt Muscular Therapies.
I am so excited for what these next 5 years will bring.
Bless you and thank you for helping me to reclaim my life and reclaim my advantage through the power of positive touch! It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the Team.
To your health and wellness,
