About Tracy Minton

Tracy Minton is a unique practitioner who has a deep passion for holistic medicine, and seamlessly weaves together a uniquely effective blend of experience and methods to help clients awaken their authentic gifts and expression to live a more joy filled, purposeful life, with greater health and ease. She has earned many certifications in healing arts including:

*Certification in Clinical Hypnotherapy
*Occupational Certificate as a Yoga Teacher
*Masters in Oriental Medicine 
*Reiki Master Teacher and Practitioner
*American Society of Alternative Therapists Certified Holistic C.O.R.E. Counselor
*Continuing education in Chinese Dietetics and Food Therapy, Macrobiotics, and plant-based and low-carb nutrition

After achieving her acupuncture certification, Tracy realized that she had a gift for and prefers helping people understand and release mental and emotional factors contributing to poor health. She continued her training in hypnosis therapy, holistic counseling, and nutritional coaching.

Tracy offers a unique understanding about all the variables that effect our personal health, happiness and vitality, including emotional as well as dietary factors. She intuitively blends a mix of hypnosis or guided healing visualizations with Reiki/energy healing, Holistic C.O.R.E. Counseling & personal development coaching designed to empower her clients, and coach them to their greatest potential with great presence, empathy and a down to earth style.

Tracy is also very passionate about helping people awaken from the many trances we go into unconsciously on a regular basis where we begin to react from a wounded, younger regressed 'part' which can sabotage our relationships and goals. Where hypnosis uses a conscious 'altered state' to help access the greater resources of the subconscious mind, our everyday trances happen spontaneously and unwittingly, but to our great detriment. Unless we own, or become conscious of the underlying beliefs that are triggering our inappropriate reactions, we remain a victim to our life circumstances, undermine our self-confidence, and continuously feel 'out of control' or anxiety ridden.

Tracy has become very adept at helping clients who are highly sensitive to their surroundings, and has developed an innate ability to help people understand their unique gifts, and how to live with less stress, more joy, and more vitality. During Reiki sessions, she intuitively hones in on the emotional or physical energy blockages, and can often sense the skills and potential life path options when appropriate. The more gentle therapies like hypnosis and Reiki are very beneficial and empowering for most people, and especially those who tend to withdraw when feeling overwhelmed, or who lack self-confidence.

Tracy enjoys helping people align with their future, most illuminated path, and believes that everyone deserves to experience a life of purpose and meaning, with greater personal freedom, health, and well being in all aspects of our lives.  This can benefit anyone desiring to overcome addictive and negative mindsets and habits.

She also loves to cook healthy simple meals, and enjoys coaching clients who desire to lose weight and improve their health.  She herself switched from an entirely plant-based diet to a low-carbohydrate diet after she began to develop ongoing fatigue, digestive issues, blood sugar imbalances, dry skin, hair, and dry brittle nails, lower immunity, and more after following a whole-foods, low-fat, plant-based macrobiotic diet.  She has since incorporated an ancestral diet and now has a much better understanding of the effects of carbohydrates on health.  

During a health coaching session, she will help you customize a diet plan that will work best for you, while helping you to learn how to eat more intuitively.

Tracy specializes in helping people with the following characteristics:

  • Anyone desiring to lose weight and improve their health through dietary changes, applying the principles of Chinese medicine combined with current science supporting a lower-carbohydrate, ancestral diet.  She especially likes to help other women who are struggling to lose the last 5-10 pounds, have blood sugar imbalances, are 35 and older and/or petite women.

  • Those trying to heal physically but keep reaching plateaus or not finding the right relief

We require direct contact with the Earth to stay grounded and maintain health. I recommend that all of my patients spend as much time as possible properly grounded by walking barefoot on the Earth as often as possible, and using Earthing products so that you can be grounded while they sleep and work.
