I am an alumnus of Brock University, with a Masters in Sociology from York University, and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Toronto. I am a social researcher in the videogame and social media industry, and have been teaching part time at Brock University for eleven years. I recently retired from the Niagara Regional Auxiliary Police Service, where I volunteered as an Auxiliary Sergeant for 16 years. Some folks call me a Jane-Of-All-Trades.


I have always been interested in the world of the unseen; as a child, I spent many hours reading books on the paranormal, occult, new age, in addition to world religions & spiritualities, alternative healing practices, and quantum mechanics. I was the 'odd' kid, the one who - at ten - was (secretly) meditating to find answers, trying to understand the empathic sensitivity I felt from people’s energy - emotions and feelings, and then places, objects, and pictures. It seems like an odd list of things for a child to read or be interested in. Rest assured, I still read my Nancy Drew books, Wonder Woman was my heroine, and I made elaborate outfits for my Barbies. But, I always felt just a tad displaced in the world I was in, and felt some comfort in learning that there was much more to the world than what most people were aware of.


My interest in these things continued throughout my life, but I was always a bit unclear on how and where this side of me fit into my life path. It became hidden, a part of my backstage. I think my story is a familiar story – a life of searching and seeking until one day ‘ding’, things made sense.  I was at a time in my life where I was interested in doing more self-healing. I had reached a point of realization that I was not on my path, despite my education and plans for the future. I had been to various healers but realized I needed to turn inward again and start healing myself. I had an incredible Reiki session where I could really feel energy moving and inner obstacles dissipating. I decided to learn Reiki: it was a life changer. That cliché is right on the money in this case. As I developed my Empathetic Energy work, I realized that I couldn’t keep this to myself, and felt I had to share and help others.

I find that there are so many people around me asking some very deep questions, and doing some soul searching right now. Not surprising given how people always seem to be on the run; it's busy, hectic, and there's little time for down-time. And so, here I am, offering others some reprieve. My hope is that people will take a bit of time for themselves and work to explore a different way of living life - happy, healthy, calm, and balanced.

I am currently working out of The Spiritual Spa. I complement my Usui Reiki treatments with Tuning Forks (Vibroacoustic Healing), Healing Crystals, Smudging, Energy Cards, and Empathic Energetics. I also create crystal healing grids, create artwork with spiritual significance out of natural artifacts, and can accommodate requests for Pet Reiki. I believe that my services can offer people an opportunity to develop their lives, on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. I feel that balancing these four aspects is imperative to good health and happiness. I also offer a cup of tea and an ear for those who just want to chat with someone about things they can’t talk to other people about.

I believe that Energy flows where attention goes. I try to remember the five Reiki Principles: “Just for today: I will not anger, I will not worry, I will be grateful, I will do my work honestly, I will be kind to every living thing.” When I am challenged by situations or emotions, my philosophy is Love, Light and Gratitude. When I struggle with people or relationships, my philosophy is best described in Namaste – ‘I honour the place in you in which the whole universe dwells…we are one,’ and Mitakuye Oyasin – ‘All are Related’. My favourite mantra is Om Mani Padme Hum.

"The Reiki healing was beyond my expectations. I could feel so many things being swept away, and old hidden hurts making themselves ready to depart. The visions and messages given to me at the end lead to further revelations in the following week. Thank you for this, it made a real difference to me." - Caleb B.

"Being new to Reiki, and a skeptic,  I did not know what to expect. After having experienced several sessions, I am impressed at how I could feel heat points without being touched, and my knee showed much improvement the next day. I was also impressed that after each session, I had a more positive outlook in general, and a feeling of peace and wellbeing." Michele O.

"Having chronic back pain, and a lot of stress, it was recommended that I give Reiki a try. Being skeptical of the whole idea, I did not know what to expect from it. It was amazing to feel everything relax as Tracy worked with the energy. I was impressed with how relaxed I felt afterwards, as well as how long it lasted. Having regular chiropractic adjustments, I was amazed at how much longer before the stiffness and pain would return between adjustments, with a Reiki session in between, as opposed to without. But being more relaxed was just the start! My overall mood and outlook was much lighter, and the everyday annoyances didn't seem to bother me as much. I was very impressed with Tracy when she told me after a session about certain things she picked up from my energies, even things I don't talk about. Skeptic? Believer." Chris M.
