|Tracy Vroom has been providing complementary health and performance solutions specializing in horses and dogs for over a decade. She founded The CranioConnection after leaving an 15 year career in publishing at Forbes Magazine to pursue her life’s work with animals. She grew up on a farm in Iowa surrounded by animals of all kinds and today loves sharing her passion and making a difference in the lives of animals and their humans. She is the co-founder of the Holistic Horse Care Cooperative. Their mission is to provide educational and networking opportunities for equine practitioners and owners. The HHCC presents the Holistic Horse Affair in Colorado each year.
Tracy’s comprehensive evaluations identify core imbalances in the body that cause underlying issues associated with dysfunction and pain. These issues are addressed and rebalanced with appropriate bodywork methods promoting the body’s natural healing process. Sessions typically provide relief and lasting results, including improved performance, movement, flexibility, health, and behavior. Tracy connects with each animal as an individual and has a keen ability for observing the body as a whole, taking into account the animal’s current state and history; emotionally and physically. She strongly believes in sharing information and tools with the animal’s caretaker and empowering people is a huge part of why she loves this work.
Tracy has taught and studied with world-renowned pioneers in complementary and holistic medicine. Her blended approach integrates a broad range of certifications, including, craniosacral therapy for horses and companion animals; Equine Body Work (specialty in sports massage, biomechanics, and movement); the Tellington TTouch/TTEAM Training Method; Postural Rehabilitation; Shamanic technology and Reiki. Tracy maintains that animals have been her most profound teachers.
She is a frequently sought after subject expert, mentor, speaker, and educator. Tracy co-teaches certification classes for the Tellington TTouch/TTEAM Method and lectures at universities and private training facilities across the country. Her work has been featured in a variety of magazines and newspapers. Tracy’s practice includes individual sessions and workshops. She works with animals in all disciplines and levels of performance. Her home base is CO but she travels all over the nation to share her work.
Tracy is dedicated to giving back to the animals who give us so much by volunteering for many organizations including: dog and horse rescue groups, therapeutic riding and seeing-eye dog programs, 4H education, animal shelters, and wild horse sanctuaries.
