Tracy Kennedy PhD, The Spiritual Spa
The Spiritual world has always been a part of my life, as a child and young adult. In retrospect, I may have been an odd child – quietly meditating in the bathroom at age nine, secretly communicating with Spirit, and silently wondering when the ETs were coming back to pick me up (lol!). I was blessed to be raised in a loving home that fostered spirituality and an interest in the metaphysical world (and relatives who were also gifted). Since the 1970s I have spent many many hours reading books and attending workshops on the paranormal, occult, new age, in addition to world religions & spiritualities, alternative healing practices, quantum mechanics, and more. I always felt just a tad displaced in the world I was in, and I felt some comfort in learning that there was much more to the world than what most people were aware of. And, importantly that my intuitive and empathic side made sense to some people.
My interest in these things continued throughout my life, but I was always a bit unclear on how and where this side of me fit into my life path. My abilities certainly came in handy in different situations and circumstances (both work and personal life), but for the most part it became hidden, a part of my backstage, a hobby. I never expected that my Life Purpose would encompass the Spiritual and Metaphysical world, despite all the clues that were given to me throughout my life. I’ve done many things in my life, but I never totally felt it was a good fit. I always felt there was something more I should be doing, that my life should have more meaning and purpose. In some ways I felt like Goldilocks, trying different things to find the perfect fit for me. Can you relate?
I am an alumnus of Brock University, with a Masters in Sociology from York University, and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Toronto. I have been teaching part time at Brock University since 1999 in the digital technology and culture field. My education in Sociology and Cultural Studies, Classics, Literature, Art & Architecture, stemmed from an early interest in people, what they’re all about – as individuals and as groups, and what makes them ‘tick’. I have always been a social justice advocate, with an interest in helping people. I retired from the Niagara Regional Auxiliary Police Service in 2013, where I volunteered as an Auxiliary Police Sergeant for 16 years. I enjoyed contributing to the community with a ‘Serve & Protect’ vibe, but I felt under-utilized, and that there were better ways for me to serve and protect the Niagara community.
Like many others, I went through a huge life shift where I realized that the career and lifestyle I had chosen were not part of my Life Path. It was devastating, shocking, and alienating, and I asked – “What now? Where do I go from here?” Sometimes it takes some time to see the interconnectedness of your life experiences, and how it is all preparation for something else – something bigger. I never expected that I would be where I am in this very moment, despite all the clues that were given to me throughout my entire life. But my journey has been rewarding, fulfilling, joyful, and so much more.
In May 2013, I opened The Spiritual Spa in St. Catharines – a space where independent holistic practitioners gather to provide wellness services to the Niagara community. In September 2014, The Spiritual Spa expanded and grew, moving into a larger space in Niagara Falls to include retail items, and this is where I am currently located. I am blessed to have a strong supportive team with me serving Niagara. The services at The Spiritual Spa offer people an opportunity to enhance their lives, on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. Balancing these four aspects is imperative to good health and happiness.
Follow your Heart, listen to your Inner Voice, challenge the Status Quo that says who and what you should be, and embrace the possibilities of Living your Life fully – for You. Let me show you how, and where to start. It’s why I’m here.
I am a Psychic Empath, Medium, Intuitive Energy Healer, Reiki Master, Certified Angel Card Reader, Certified Crystal Healer, Certified Trance Channeler, Writer & published author, Spiritual Teacher & Metaphysical Educator, and Personal Consultant for individuals and businesses. Some of the services I currently offer are:
Psychic Mediumship Readings
During a Reading, Tracy energetically scans the person’s physical body and aura, and gives insight about areas where they are losing power. She sheds light on areas of life that need attention, encompassing the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of Self. Tracy provides awareness, insight and guidance using her Empathic Psychic skills and Mediumship abilities. If you are feeling confused, uncertain, disconnected, out of touch, or need guidance or validation about your path and life purpose, this is a good session to do. This is not a predictive/fortune telling reading (although pathways of possibilities can reveal themselves during a reading); instead it is a check-in with the Spirit World, allowing Spirit to provide you with what you need to know right now.
Intuitive Energy Healing
Everything in existence is Energy, ourselves included. As such, we have the ability to transform and shift the frequency and vibration of all Energy forms. An Intuitive Energy Healing session works with Energy on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. The intention of this session is to clear what you don’t need or want (low vibrational energy or negativity and fear), and bring in what you want more of (high vibrational energy or positivity and love). It is both relaxing and refreshing, and offers insight into where you are at. If you are feeling heavy, tired, agitated, depressed, or anxious, this is a good session to do. The session includes Sacred Smudging & Clearing, Crystal Healing, Chakra Alignment with the Vibroacoustics of Tuning Forks, Full body Energy Healing, and Intuitive Feedback about the Chakra Energies and physical body.
A Spiritual Consultation session is intended for those who are seeking knowledge on how to progress with their own spiritual path or for those who are looking for some insight into their life purpose. Spiritual Consultations can also include learning tools and skills to help you understand and navigate your intuitive and/or empathic gifts, help you learn grounding and protection methods, or to show you how to focus and enhance your psychic abilities. This is not a reading, but rather a discussion. You are welcome to bring questions about topic areas with you for discussion, use our time together as a sounding board for your ideas.
The Spiritual Mentorship Program is intended for those who feel they need guidance and insight with their path, and to set the groundwork for their spiritual work. The mentorship program is a four to six week program where we meet once a week to discuss various spiritual tools and skills. Each week is a different topic and skill set. Programs are individually customized, or can be tailored for a small group. Individual work outside of our meeting time is expected and discussed within the sessions. It’s important to learn the tools, apply the concepts, and work with your skill sets for true learning to occur.
The Empath Tutoring Program is intended for those who think they are Empaths and for those who know they are Empaths. These customized sessions are intended to help people in need of some understanding of what it means to be an Empath, and some tools to navigate the emotional energies that surround us. From there (if you choose), you can learn how to develop the skills and abilities into a psychic mediumship ability/skill as a Clairsentient. Empathic Energetics is a term I created to describe the ability to read and translate energy signatures in the physical body that stem from past life issues, present life traumas and emotional strains, and the ability to connect with and receive information from those who have crossed over, Spirit Guides, Angels, and Archangels.

Workshops and Seminars
In the last four years, I have taught numerous workshops and seminars on various Spiritual and Metaphysical topics. My most recent focus is teaching Empaths to thrive and flourish. I am currently teaching “Essential Practices for Empaths” at Lily Dale Assembly, New York during the summer season. I hold monthly evenings of healing and insight for Empaths that are scheduled around the Moon cycle and Astrological events, in addition to a Seer’s Circle for people to practice their psychic mediumship. Check the online calendar to see what’s coming up.
Community Service (No fees)
This service is for those who want to understand things that are going on in their homes or workplace. Paranormal Investigations are not for entertainment, and are conducted with the upmost respect for the deceased and the Spirit world. My role in these investigations is act as a bridge between the physical and non-physical world, convey messages if needed, give insight and understanding, and help any deceased in need to cross over. The intention here is understanding and healing.
Putting my policing background to good use, I work on Cold Cases, Missing Persons, and ongoing investigations anonymously and confidentially.
I also offer a cup of tea and an ear for those who just want to chat with someone about things they can’t talk to other people about. Building a strong spiritual community is vital and connecting with like-minded folks is empowering and enlightening.
Follow the Vibe to find Your Tribe!
When I am challenged by situations or emotions, my philosophy is Love, Light and Gratitude. When I struggle with people or relationships, my philosophy is best described in Namaste -‘I honour the place in you in which the whole universe dwells…we are one,’ and Mitakuye Oyasin -‘All are Related’.

“Having chronic back pain, and a lot of stress, it was recommended that I give Reiki a try. Being skeptical of the whole idea, I did not know what to expect from it. It was amazing to feel everything relax as Tracy worked with the energy. I was impressed with how relaxed I felt afterwards, as well as how long it lasted. Having regular chiropractic adjustments, I was amazed at how much longer before the stiffness and pain would return between adjustments, with a Reiki session in between, as opposed to without. But being more relaxed was just the start! My overall mood and outlook was much lighter, and the everyday annoyances didn’t seem to bother me as much. I was very impressed with Tracy when she told me after a session about certain things she picked up from my energies, even things I don’t talk about. Skeptic? Believer.”

“The Reiki healing was beyond my expectations. I could feel so many things being swept away, and old hidden hurts making themselves ready to depart. The visions and messages given to me at the end lead to further revelations in the following week. Thank you for this, it made a real difference to me.”
– Caleb B.
“Tracy was an amazing teacher. She gives you all aspects from many walks of life in a way that is easy to understand. She is extremely knowledgeable and caring at whatever level you are at in your journey. You can really feel that Tracy truly loves what she does and is eager to share her knowledge and experiences with those who are interested in learning. Taking the Level 1 and Level 2 Reiki courses with Tracy has really changed my life. The way I look at everything in my life has changed for the better. I now have a feeling of peace throughout my whole body. I believe that we were supposed to meet at this point in my life, as she is a wonderful teacher and a beautiful soul. I would definitely recommend anyone to take a course that Tracy is offering because of her passion for what she is doing.”
“Thank you for such an open atmosphere to learn something completely new and ask any questions. You had great energy, were patient and provided a well rounded introductory experience (without being “pushy” in terms of sales). You have me on the hook and curious to learn more – I’ll be back!”
-Chakra Party Attendee, Anonymous Review
“The experience I had during the Chakra Party was refreshing and balancing…I would recommend those who have never exposed themselves to crystals, auras and Reiki to try it. Remember to keep an open mind, as you never know where your journey will lead you. Namaste.”
