Tracy L. Hackett received her Master’s degree in TCM from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM at CiiS) in San Francisco, California in 2005. She completed her clinical doctorate in Oriental Medicine (DAOM) there as well.
Dr. Hackett’s DAOM capstone paper focused on twenty-five unique acupuncture points she developed during her clinical practice and study will soon be published through CiiS (California Institute of Integral Studies). Dr. Lixing Lao (Hong Kong University) has been an important mentor to her in the development of the paper. Dr. Steve Given, Dean of Clinical Education and Academic Assessment at ACTCM at CiiS, has called her paper “..an important contribution to the field”.
The beginning of her formal path in the healing arts was earning a Bachelor’s degree (High Hons.) in Interdisciplinary Studies at University of Florida. Part of that period of study took her to India where she painted a complex mural on a temple ceiling and explored Ayurveda and Siddha medicine systems.
Dr. Hackett’s own health issues were not addressed well with conventional medicine prompting her to seek relief and well-being through yoga, meditation, and nutrition, which subsequently lead her through this winding path to her most powerful experiences with Chinese medicine (CM).
Dr. Hackett has studied healing arts in India, China, Ladakh, Nepal, Thailand, and Bali. During her travels, while studying Buddhism, she provided community service acupuncture to the lamas, monks, nuns, and local residents near her teacher’s monasteries in Ladakh, India, and Nepal. She has been teaching yoga and meditation since 1997 and has been practicing yoga and meditation since childhood.
Dr. Hackett has participated in clinical rotations in various settings including: California Pacific Medical Center, UCSF/Sutter Health, San Francisco, CA; NIH Clinical Center for Pain and Palliative Care, Bethesda, MD; Women’s Cancer Resource Center, Oakland, CA; Quan Yin Healing Arts, San Francisco, CA), Red Cross Hospital (2013) and Zhejiang Chinese Medical University Hospital (2005, 2013), both in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. Her diverse background brings an unmatched depth of perspective to you to address your health concerns.
Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities are practical, empirically validated forms of health care that have been effective for millions of people over millennia. There is an art to the practice of CM (Chinese Medicine) as well, which is reliant upon the empathy and intuition of the doctor, as much as skill and knowledge of the technical aspects of their application.
Either stand alone or in conjunction with conventional medicine powerful results can arise, providing you with the best of both worlds. Long-life, vitality, and well-being. Enjoy life to the fullest by utilizing preventative medicine to it’s most powerful definition, a definition that is unique to you and your needs in your current phase of life. Tests are important, but true preventative medicine nourishes and rebalances the mind, body, and spirit to resist illness and preserve longevity.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine (CM) along with Functional Medicine are rejuvenating in nature. Most of Dr. Hackett’s patients are able to sleep or achieve a deep state of relaxation during their treatments, leaving her serene Jupiter office feeling refreshed, recharged, and elevated…most often, with a relief and relaxation to meet the demands and pleasures of life!
