At West Meadow Spa, we are passionate about healing and comforting people, and it shows in every aspect of what we do. We are fortunate to have so many people tell us how wonderful they feel after each visit.
While the most significant health benefits can be achieved through routine and consistent treatments, the deep relaxation and healing touch from an occasional visit has immediate positive impacts on your well being, particularly in todays busy and active lifestyles.
Whether you are interested in stopping by for a quick treatment while you are in town on vacation, or scheduling a series of visits, you owe it to yourself to visit West Meadow Spa.
Check out this article HERE that was written for the NY Times by a local Wilmingtonian writer, John Sullivan. West Meadow Spa’s Tracy Meyer was featured in this article (paragraph 8). It’s an entertaining read.
Owner & Esthetician – Tracy Meyer
Tracy began her journey into the world of skincare in 1988, where she completed her Cosmetology and Esthetics certifications in New York. Three years later, Tracy jumped the pond to enjoy afternoon tea with her studies. At Thanet Technical College on Britain’s Southeast coast, Tracy immersed herself in European skin care. She also refined her skills in body massage, waxing, electrolysis, manicures and pedicures. Valuable experience was gained at English and French spas, where Tracy worked during her time in Europe. In 1992, her studies completed, only crumbs left in her box of biscuits and the last tea bag steeping, she graduated with a degree in Beauty Therapy in 1992. Destined for more adventure, more culture, and more priceless experience, Tracy grabbed a life jacket and jumped aboard some of the largest cruise ships in the world. She toured the Caribbean and Mediterranean offering facials, body treatments and massages to the myriad of vacationers who were ready to inhale the warm sun and exhale the salt of the seas. In 1995, Tracy docked in the US where she developed a steady following of clients in New York, Massachusetts and Atlanta. With the dawn of the new millennium, Tracy moved to Wilmington and began putting roots down in this community.
Tracy has been working with natural and organic skincare for over 20 years. She has refocused her practice to include North Carolina’s own De La Terre products, as well as Germany’s biodynamic line of skin care and cosmetics, Dr. Hauschka. She is a certified Dr. Hauschka esthetician having attended the intensive training at their US headquarters in Massachusetts. Tracy is a renowned esthetician in the Cape Fear community where she’s known for her sweet smile, warm hugs and exceptional knowledge of skin care and health.

As we age, the effects of gravity take its toll on all the joints of the body. By working directionally towards the heart, we are essentially combating the effects of gravity on the body. Rusty has had much success with back pain relief, sports injuries and overall stress relief. He begins all of his massages at the feet and from there, gradually works up to the head and shoulders, then out to the fingertips.
