Tracey has a warm down-to- earth presence and a deep intuition that helps her facilitate groups with clarity, spontaneity and loads of inspiration. She believes in the profound intelligence of the body and breath and empowers others to live and work with more awareness, happiness, resilience and hopefulness. It is her own relationship with being vulnerably human and her capacity to deeply listen — along with years of meditation, movement, deep rest and a fierce courage to evolve – that most deeply inform her wide capacity to be a healing presence with others.
Tracey has 20+ years experience as a massage therapist and bodyworker and completed her training at The Body Therapy Institute in North Carolina. She is a former faculty member of The Body Therapy Institute and is a graduate of the Spirit of Learning, a bodyworker teacher-training program. Tracey worked at Duke Integrative Medicine in its early entrepreneurial phase where she built the integrative massage program from inception.
She received her initial training as a breathwork facilitator through Clarity Breathwork in Costa Rica and has completed further training in Biodynamic Breath. She is a Certified Integrative Reflexologist, has trained extensively with Claire Marie Miller and is now an international teacher in this reflexology modality. She received her professional training in Mind Body Skills through the Center of Mind Body Medicine in Washington, DC in 2009. Much of her work is influenced by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program.
Tracey co-facilitates retreats and workshops in the US and internationally with Sharon Nash on the topics of meditation and mindfulness, depression and anxiety, breathwork and sound healing and Integrative Reflexology. They are Approved Providers of Continuing Education by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). Their workshops and retreats are open to all.
