Meet Tracy

Tracy Snyder, BLA, LMT, CLT

Tracy earned a Bachelors of Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon. She worked as a land-use consultant for a firm in the Seattle area until an injury acquired in a horseback riding incident changed the course of her life.

After years of misdiagnosis and debilitating pain, it was discovered that Tracy had sustained severe nerve damage at the base of her skull. It took years of treatments including acupuncture, chiropractic and several kinds of massage, but Tracy is now pain free. She walked away from her professional degree and went back to vocational school so she could help others the way she was helped.

Tracy is a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in CranioSacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage and the Long Form of Shiatsu, as well as Swedish Massage. Tracy likes to work with those who experience chronic pain due to injury, overuse, emotional stress or trauma and help them realize there is hope of recovery. She has a calm demeanor, allowing her clients to fully relax during treatment. She is highly trained, professional and loves to answer questions about the different kinds of massage she is doing. She is especially fond of working with clients who suffer from problems with the nervous system such as fibromyalgia, whiplash, anxiety and injury. Tracy hopes you will come in and remember what it’s like to live without pain.

Tracy earned her diploma as a Certified Lymphedema Therapist through the Academy of Lymphatic Studies. This prepared her to work with those who have chronic swelling due to cancer treatments, injury and surgery.

 

 

 

During Tracy’s free time she paddles with the Angry Unicorn dragon boat team.

 

 

She also belongs to the West Salem Writers Critique group, Oregon Christian Writers and Willamette Writers. She pens speculative fiction (the weird stuff) and received First Place in the 2012 Kay Snow Awards for a humorous short story.
