Sometimes fate puts you on your path of purpose. That is exactly what happened to Tracy McDonough when she was hit by a driver who suffered a heart attack while doing 80 mph on the turnpike. Every bone in her foot was shattered and she endured a nine-hour reconstructive surgery. But she says this event enriched her life forever.
During her recuperation she learned the power of meditation and energy medicine. She learned how the mind can help heal both physical and emotional trauma. Being fascinated by Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer and many holistic medicine experts on mind-body medicine, she decided to help others by using massage therapy, energy medicine and holistic health coaching.
During her 15 years at Boca Lago Country Club she was inspired to go back to FAU for a master’s degree in clinical social work to further help her clients. She calls this adding to her “healing tool kit.”
“I then developed breast cancer,” she shared in her typical upbeat manner, calling it “another dimension of learning.”
She went on to work at a plastic surgery center for 12 years, integrating lymphatic work and mind, body medicine in her healing.
“I’ve had 6,000 clients in 25 years, I’ve learned to facilitate true healing; you cannot just treat one part of the body,” she says.
She went on to create a mind-body-spirit center that utilizes her tool kit and explains, “If I can’t calm your nervous system, nothing I do to your body is going to stick.”
