My WHY. I believe that wellness is not a destination, but rather a constant journey and opportunity to deeply embody the gift of life. I believe within us exists a well of nourishment and NOW is the time to be LIVING TRUE to that potential.
Child and Youth Worker + Reflexologist + Yoga Teacher + Reiki Master + Nutritionist + trained Doula + Movement for Trauma + a forever student of Life = Tracy Young, Holistic Practitioner
I graduated from Cambrian College with a Child and Youth Worker Diploma and worked for over a decade in Residential Treatment homes with children and teens. My role as the Treatment Coordinator was spent designing, teaching, and implementing programs designed for self-care, self-awareness, and self-regulation in managing stress and trauma. As the staff trainer I had the opportunity to work collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team of professionals, which further lead me to explore a more holistic approach.

I certified as a Holistic Nutritionistfrom Bauman College in California. I also had the opportunity to be employed within the school as the Student Advisor for the Santa Cruz Campus. This emersion into the College offered me an opportunity to fully explore the culinary arts as a Healing modality. I came to understand that each bite of food is a blessing and a chance to nourish, to care for, and to transform past experiences into future potential. I believe the kitchen and eating environment, the rituals created around selecting, preparing and ingesting foods truly reflects the awareness of our ability to claim health. By embracing a wholesome approach to food, one that reflects nature’s rhythms, conscious choices, and Eating for Health, I believe we can restore resiliency and lessen our vulnerability to disease.
With my personal and dynamic work experience, travel, and professional education, I offer you an enhanced opportunity to embrace Holistic Wellness at the very core of your being. I value the experiences that have personally led me to actively build a foundation for optimal health, and I am constantly engaged in my own healing potential. I see the foundation as individual, and by discovering various healing modalities and how they manifest for you, can help to unravel and discover the deep truth of yourself, your needs, boundaries, and willingness to achieve your full potential in all aspects of life.
I spent several years traveling world wide, exploring new territory and lifestyles, and immersed myself in new cultures, schools of thought, and deep personal healing. I have had the opportunity to work as a nanny for four families in both Canada and the United States. I have worked alongside my Reiki Master where I had the opportunity to assist her on two spiritual retreats; to Angel Valley in Arizona and to the big Island of Hawaii. I also assisted on a Sound Healing Certification retreat on Whidby Island off Washington where I was responsible for preparing all of the daily meals for ten participants. Over the years my clinical practice has blessed me with the opportunity to work in Guelph and Elora Ontario, Santa Cruz California, and now has settled in Durham Ontario.
I welcome you to discover the inspiration within you, to live a life that is TRUE to YOU. I encourage you to embody a presence within yourself that deeply connects you to your surroundings so that all aspects of your life offer balance, stability, vitality, and joy.
