Tracey Byer first encountered the benefits of acupuncture when she injured her back and neck and could not find relief through Western medicine. After trying acupuncture, Tracey was amazed at the immediate results and she ultimately experienced a full recovery. After this Tracey made the commitment to study Chinese Medicine because as she says “I wanted to be able to provide that level of care to my clients.”
Tracey received her Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM) from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City. She is Certified in Acupuncture by the NCCAOM and licensed to practice acupuncture in New York State.
Tracey has over 10 years experience as a massage therapist and skin care expert. Her educational background includes The Swedish Institute as well the Lia Schorr Institute of Cosmetic Care. She is currently a teacher and supervisor at Atelier Esthetique in New York City.
Tracey is a great advocate of community acupuncture, saying, “I am passionate about healthcare being affordable and readily available. Community Acupuncture provides affordable care and allows the patient to receive the treatments they need, when they need it.”
Outside of acupuncture, Tracey is interested in Qi Gong, meditation, Tai Chi, and enjoys Native American/Tlingit art, dance and language. Her future plans include advocating for Native American rights and educating Native people about health and nutrition.
