About Us

Tracy and Brenda are always excited to share our many years of experience with our clients and 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 spend some time at the Retreat!

 Don’t forget to find us on Facebook too!

Esthetician – Tracy Meyer

In 2007 Sambuca teamed up with Tracy Meyer, a holistic esthetician with over 25 years experience. Tracy Meyer began in the beauty industry by earning certifications for cosmetology and esthetics in 1987 & 1988, in New York. After working in the industry for 2 years, Tracy decided to pursue further training and experience and moved to England to study at Thanet Technical College on Britain’s Southwest coast. The program at Thanet was wide-ranging, including European skin care, electrolysis, body massage, waxing, manicures, and pedicures. While studying overseas Tracy also gained valuable experience working in England and France, and graduated with a degree in beauty therapy in 1992. The following two years were spent performing facials, body treatments, and massage aboard cruise ships in the carribean & mediteraenian seas. In 1995 she moved back to the states & continued in esthetics in New York, Massachusetts, and Atlanta, before moving to Wilmington in 2000. Tracy has been working with natural and organic skincare lines for 20 years. She has been a certified Jurlique esthetician for 10 years and has a recent certification with Dr. Hauschka Biodynamic Skin Care. Tracy has developed a high quality, professional, and truly unique gift that has become renowned in the Cape Fear area.
