About Us

At Radiant Retreat, 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 Radiant Retreat.

tracy-headshotIn 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 Caribbean & Mediterranean 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 over 20 years. She has been a certified Jurlique esthetician for 10 years and is certified 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.


Massage Therapist – Rusty Loftin

rustyRusty Loftin has been a Massage Therapist for over twenty years and has learned that each person is as unique as a snowflake. He listens to each unique need his clients have and makes sure to address them. In his many years of practice he has addressed just about every conceivable malady that a Massage Therapist can be presented with. Rusty’s specialty is Deep Tissue Massage with a blend of other modalities including the use of Hot Stones. This blending offers his clients a unique and dynamic experience.  It still never ceases to amaze him just how effective Massage can be in alleviating pain, stress, muscle tension and sports injuries in addition to that feeling of well-being that you take away from the experience.

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.

Rusty is looking forward to being a vital resource to you in your journey towards better health and well-being.
