In 2019 True REST Float Spa received Top Performing Spa in the franchise and the Star Service Reward from the franchise.
COLUMBUS, OH, December 11, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Heather Gerke has been inducted into Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Mrs. Gerke has distinguished herself as the owner of a True REST Float Spa with locations in Columbus and Powell, Ohio. Founded in 2009, True REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulus Therapy) is a spa organization dedicated to delivering an unparalleled therapeutic experience, accomplished using 1,000 pounds of Epsom salts to allow clients to float effortlessly on water. The resultant sensory deprivation eliminates stress to both the body and mind, freeing the customer to relax, recover and even improve upon their sleep in this unique environment. Achieving outstanding success through their impeccable services, the company has spread throughout the United States, with Mrs. Gerke and her husband, Patrick, opening their first location in 2015, and shortly after, in 2016, opened their second location. She previously excelled as the Director of Advertising and Marketing on behalf of the Robb Report from 2005 to 2012.
Drawing on a wealth of inspiration from her husband, Mrs. Gerke fondly recalls receiving a text message from him in 2013, informing her that they were "going to open a float spa." She responded incredulously, having never heard of such a thing. Her husband, a Marine veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, had tried such a spa in Chicago and benefited greatly from the experience. Leveraging Mrs. Gerke's previous executive experience in advertising and marketing, they pooled their resources and proceeded to follow through on the idea, garnering immense popularity almost immediately. Within 30 days of opening their locations, they had already accrued a wait list among area customers.
Mrs. Gerke credits her competitive and driven nature, as well as her hard work and dedication to her success. What's more, she draws great fulfillment from seeing the benefits her customers draw from flotation therapy, creating yet more incentive to continue forward. Her efforts have won her such accolades as a Top Sales Award from Mind Body in 2018, a listing within the Best of Groupon in 2017, as well as 2018, consistent five star Google ratings, and an A grading from the Better Business Bureau. In 2019 True REST Float Spa received Top Performing Spa in the franchise and the Star Service Reward from the franchise. Outside of her career responsibilities, Mrs. Gerke enjoys such diversions as hiking, traveling, camping and reading. Looking towards the future, she plans to focus on seeing her three children successfully through their college studies and retiring shortly thereafter.
