I absolutely loved the treatment! I have had many other modalities in the past: remedial massage, myofascial release, Hellerwork, osteopathy, chiropractic, Hawaiian massage, Thai massage, Zenthai shiatsu, Shiatsu massage, physiotherapist. All were helpful, but the Structural Integration session I had with Tracy was palpably the most beneficial and effective treatment I have ever had. I felt entirely at ease, safe, fully cared for and immensely more supple after.Doris H – Physician

Tracy is an outstanding therapist. Five years after a car accident and still working through chronic pain, I was referred to Tracy for Rolfing Therapy. Tracy is professional, down to earth, and very thorough. Her approach combines curiosity and compassion and she has a rare talent for identifying holding patterns in the body and postural issues and using techniques to resolve them. I have found working with Tracy very effective for pain treatment and I highly recommend her.Este G

Tracy is very gifted and I feel extremely fortunate to have found her. I’m working through old injuries and releasing things I’m sure I’ve carried for years. Her touch is gentle and strong and full of purpose. She is a big part of my self care right now!Melanie B

I had an amazing first Structural Integration session and I look forward to many more. My shoulders feel like they are no longer hunched forward and up to my ears and my low back (which is always in pain) feels great! Tracy is amazing and I couldn’t be happier!Prema M

Tracy is extremely skilled and attentive. As a competitive dancer, I’ve tried a whole buffet of bodywork but the effects of Structural Integration are some of the most beneficial. I highly recommend!CD – Dancer & Student

 I just completed the 10-series of Rolfing, and it has been such an amazing journey! Every single session would surprise me. Tracy is a great person, and a professional who listens to you and your body very carefully. She has great compassion and understanding, and her gentle touch just assures you that you’re going to be OK. I came to see her injured head-to-toe in body, mind, and emotions — and so desperate to get well. After five years of trying all kinds of therapies (Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Chiropractic, and Acupuncture), finally Structural Integration solved the puzzle. I feel reborn, like I have a new body! It feels so good. I just can’t describe the feeling of joy and balance. Now, I’m pain-free, my body is in alignment and balanced. Goodbye to TMJ pain, super-tight hamstrings, whole body misalignment. I believe in this work and in Tracy. In future, it will always be the first method I turn to when I need healing.Leila B

I wasn’t sure if I could manage the pain associated with fascia work. Tracy has wonderful technique that actually felt good. The evening after my first session I felt energized. The next morning my plantar fasciitis was less painful, the swelling reduced. I will continue this work based on these noticeable results. Thank you, Tracy!Michelle T

I am easily standing and sitting straighter now. At mid-life my body was beginning to curl up, with a hunched shoulder posture, especially when sitting. I saw immediate results from just one Structural Integration session with Tracy. At three-quarters of the way through a ten-series, my awareness of my body has intensified, allowing me to see how much stress or tension I put into my stance when I sit or stand. Now I am feeling so thankful that I am more able to move without strain, aware of how to manage my own posture, floating tall and straight.Rose M – Artist & Librarian

Tracy is a gifted Bodyworker and listener, drawing from the depths things that could have been released long ago, and are now. She does this with an easy, friendly style – remarkable!Nirmal P – Singer

I went to see Tracy in Summer 2015, on the recommendation of a friend, to deal with a very painful shoulder and neck and ended up having a surprisingly deep transformational experience. When I first came in, just turning my neck hurt, and the pain was spreading down into my elbow and wrist. Tracy recommended that I try just an initial session to see how I felt about the Rolf method before committing to the next 9 sessions for the 10 Series. After this first session, my pain was greatly reduced, my mobility was much better, and I felt a real sense of calm and well-being. So, I decided to complete the series and saw Tracy every week (or so) over the next 3 months. Within a few sessions, Tracy was addressing fundamental patterns about how I hold my body – some areas were tense, because that’s where I hold my stress. Other areas were where I have held trauma. Tracy even addressed areas (like my hip-knee-ankle alignment) that I thought I was born with and couldn’t change. Over the same period, I was beginning road cycling training for two endurance bike rides – a 120km ride and a 250km ride – pretty much from scratch. Even after a bike fit (on my already made-to-measure bike), I was bringing back the pain in my shoulder – to the extent that on one long ride my hand started to go numb. Tracy checked in on my training progress and, in her adjustments, gave me the support I needed. Since the 10 Series finished, I have been cycling 4-6+ hr rides with not only no pain, but with a really high level of fitness, great recovery time, and no sore muscles. To put it another way, I was expecting in May to finish the Whistler GranFondo in about 6 hours, but ended up finishing it in about 5.5 this September. I believe the reason for this is because my muscles and joints are better balanced and working more efficiently together.

I can’t recommend Tracy enough! She is a great listener with a deep and intuitive sense of healing. The transformation from someone totally not good at sports to a pretty reasonable cyclist in 3 months has been a profound experience for me. But something that has been even more profound is how much less anxiety I feel on a daily basis. It actually shocks me to reflect on how much stress was part of my life not even that long ago. So by supporting me to let a lot of my deep physical tensions go and showing me how to recognize where I’m holding tension, Tracy has given me a real sense of inner peace.Daniella F

Tracy has a beautiful, clear, grounded presence, her touch is sensitive and deeply intuitive, which greatly informed the bodywork I received. The treatment was deep and releasing but not painful. I felt nurtured, supported, and cared for while receiving what my body needed to open and release. Thank you, Tracy!Suvali – Movement Therapist

Having had unpleasant experiences with Rolfing in the past, I was hesitant to try Structural Integration. I’m very glad I did. Tracy Dixon is a skilled and sensitive practitioner and I felt relaxed, open and peaceful in body, mind and heart after the session. I highly recommend her.Adrianne R – Family Physician

I had been experiencing 2 weeks of pain in my right shoulder. Thankfully, I went to see Tracy to seek help. After just one session, I am feeling great relief in my shoulder, and I have full mobility again. It’s such a remarkable difference to feel in just one session. Thanks so much for your skilled treatment.Odete P – Urban Planner

The first time I saw Tracy, my neck was all but frozen and had been for days.  Immediately after one session, my range of motion was almost back to normal, and after the second it was like there was never an issue.  It was the most direct and effective body work experience I have ever had, and it fundamentally changed the quality of my life.Bill P

Tracy is an intuitive, gentle, focused and remarkable Structural Integration practitioner. Even the most intense moments, and there were many during the 10 series I received from Tracy, there was a deep presence and softness of being. I didn’t even realize how much my body learned from Tracy until, after the series completed, I had some pain in my neck and shoulders and called her for a session. Tracy was out of town and left me a voicemail suggesting I let my body recall the alignment I had learned in our previous sessions. I didn’t think about it, I simply allowed my body to remember what it had learned from Tracy. In a couple of days, the pain was gone. The type of body work Tracy offers is the kind that will empower your body to heal itself.Elana A – Workshop Facilitator

In the summer of 2008 I completed a series of ten Structural Integration sessions with Tracy. I had tried “Rolfing” several years before with another practitioner, so I knew a bit about it, but I hadn’t yet completed the full ten sessions. My desire to revisit this form of body work arose from a persistent injury in my right knee—a damaged ligament—and my belief that it was related to tension in both my hips and and my quadriceps. Not only was Tracy able to help heal my knee (by loosening and realigning my hips and back), but my posture—both physical and emotional—was greatly improved. Old tensions (physiological responses to stress and trauma, mainly) and scar tissue from years of athletics and construction work were released and my body was able to settle back into itself. To this day, I am still noticing the adjustments that Tracy facilitated. Both my posture and my knee (which hasn’t bothered me since) are well and good. Structural Integration offers a unique form of recovery, and as a result of the intensity of the treatment—the deep, healing nature of the work—I also developed a strong sense of body awareness, a cellular knowing, that has stayed with me and which I have integrated into my daily life. And finally, beyond all the generalized benefits of this method, Tracy is a superior practitioner. Her intuitive strength and healing abilities have a profound effect on the experience. One feels truly guided and supported through these sessions in a way that is nothing short of life-changing. I cannot speak highly enough of her work and I would recommend anyone to seek her help on their healing journey.Elyot M – Carpenter

I had an amazing treatment from Tracy. I am hooked. She has a deeply compassionate bedside manner, years of experience, an excitement to further her education, and such passion for the modality. This was my first Structural Integration session. My favorite massages have consisted of a lot of release of the fascia. Tracy delivered exactly the release of muscle tension I needed. So good!Amy Z

Tracy has magic in her hands. She knows exactly how to relieve my pain and give me the nurturing my body seeks. She is sensitive, kind and caring and her in-depth understanding of how Structural Integration heals old trauma allowed me to completely trust her and surrender to her touch. My recommendation comes with the highest respect.Joanna F – Singer-Songwriter & Performer

I received a 10-series from Tracy Dixon to rebalance my musculature after a serious hamstring injury. This injury was causing tightness and torquing in the right side of my body,  impacting my yoga practice and general comfort, particularly in the affected hip joint. In addition to improving alignment between my left and right sides, this series of treatments were extremely valuable for increasing my awareness of the role and importance of  connective tissue in physical health. There were further emotional benefits in identifying areas of my body that were holding onto past traumas. My sessions with Tracy have had a lasting effect on the way I view my body, injury and rehabilitation and the emotional-physical connections we all have. I have been able to apply this experience to my daily awareness and subsequent physical challenges. I highly recommend Structural Integration with Tracy Dixon.Darcy J – Artist & Teacher

Tracy Dixon is a truly genuine mindful practitioner & teacher. Her deep passion for her work is a constant inspiration. Tracy is always seeking more education and training to improve and evolve her skills. It is without hesitation I would recommend Tracy Dixon.Ingrid W – Day Spa Owner/RMT

I’ve received Structural Integration services from Tracy on several occasions and will continue to do so whenever possible. Her thorough understanding of the human body, strong hands, and good nature make for an excellent treatment.Leif J – Internet Marketing Strategist & Business Consultant

Tracy is a lovely person and for my sessions she was fully aware of, and responsive to, my individual needs. Capable of finding that therapeutic edge, she is careful of not going beyond it. It’s easy to open up and talk to someone who is listening deeply, and is so respectful and honest with her intention. It’s easy to tell that Tracy brings a wealth of experience with her, applying it in ways immediately beneficial and that leave a lasting impression.Aaron S

Tracy helped me with the back and shoulder pain I had. Her technique dealt with deep tissue/muscle issues and helped me greatly. She is gentle and attentive in dealing with people and armed with great technique and powerful hands.Jean-Francois L – Internet Marketing Specialist

I have been getting work done by Tracy in the last 2 weeks…and, having been rolfed over 50 times in my life, by over 10 different practitioners, Tracy ranks in the top 2 all time SI practitioners to have dug into my core! The other one being Emmett, who is the most senior rolfer perhaps on the planet.Glenn W
