The CranioConnection, founded by Tracy Vroom, has been providing complementary health, healing, and performance solutions specializing in horses and dogs for 19 years. 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.
The CranioConnection offers individual sessions for animals as well as workshops. The equine craniosacral therapy workshop series is a 7 level certification program and the canine craniosacral therapy workshop series is s 5 level certification program. Workshops are being held in CO, CA, OR, PA and Australia. Workshops on shamanic technology, herbal healing and light work are also being offered.
In individual sessions, Tracy uses a blended approach of non-invasive, therapies; craniosacral therapy, shamanic healing work, massage, trigger point therapy, the TTouch Method, herbs and essential oils. The sessions help the animal activate their natural ability to heal. This way they come into balance, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually in a way that is right for them. After each session we’re looking for improvements in health, performance, movement, flexibility, and emotional balance. She also 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 works as a team with the animal's veterinarian and other practitioners toward a common goal of optimal health and longevity.
