About Tracy McCormick
Why I Do What I Do …
After working eighteen years in the Insurance Industry, and being in my mid 30’s. I realized I wanted to do something different. I was gifted a facial and that sparked a career change. I never knew what an Esthetician was, but I wanted to become one!
So I left my 9-5 to go back to school to fulfill my dreams. After graduating in 2003, I worked at a spa for two years where I acquired a loyal following and some terrific clients. I decided it was time to go out on my own.
By this time, I had mastered Brazilian waxing, so many people wanted it done and yet were petrified. I really make an effort to make the waxing the most pleasant experience possible. It’s important to make someone feel comfortable and relaxed, and I feel that I have accomplished that. Some clients have been with me from the beginning, and they feel like old friends, and I love seeing them monthly.
Tracy’s Retreat was established in 2005, After all these years, I am still loving what I do. Since then, my business has flourished. It was truly the best decision I have ever made. I’ve learned that you are never too old to follow your dreams, and it is always better to try and fail than to regret not trying at all!

What They Say
Gloria H. -- Buffalo, NY
“Found Tracy’s Retreat online and read positive reviews about their experiences with her. Went for my first wax – to do something not me but me – 53 years old and still young at heart and Hubby loves it too! Tracey was great in that she explained what she was going to do every step of the way and tried to be as gentle as possible. This being my first time definitely had some “ouchy” moments. I’m definitely going back to Tracy for a follow-up – she assured me the second time around and on that it gets much better. I highly recommend her!“
Touriea S. -- Buffalo, NY
“Tracy does the best waxes EVER!! I’ve been going to her since 2011 and I love the service and she remembers you and gives great convo. The procedure is quick and efficient and with a good clean result. I am satisfied!“
Kristina W. -- Irving, NY (Yes, I make a 45 minute drive just to see her)
“Tracy is amazing. I will TRULY never go anywhere else again!! I made the mistake of going to another “salon/spa”, and the woman completely messed up my eyebrows. I’ve learned my lesson and won’t be going anywhere besides Tracy’s Retreat from now on! I’ve received everything from a Brazilian, to eyebrows, to full face, and the results are all amazing! Best thing is, she will get me in as soon as possible. With my hectic schedule, I’m usually calling last minute, but she always figures out a way to satisfy my needs. Tracy is a great esthetician and a good friend. Thank you!!!”
Chantina H. -- Buffalo, NY
“I must admit I was hesitant the first time, but because I’ll try almost anything at least once, I made a waxing appointment and went. Now, I look forward to my appointments. Tracy is very professional, patient and creates such an atmosphere of relaxation that I barely feel anything and it’s over before I know it. She is so great that I and two other ladies from my office schedule appointments every 4 weeks during our lunch hour. Tracy affectionately calls us “The Girls.” Now that the Retreat has expanded and offers additional services, it’ll be my second home.”
Gretchen R. -- Buffalo, NY
“I have a friend who recommended Tracy to me a year ago, but I used a Groupon to some other spa for my first Brazilian wax. My experience with it was horribly painful, it lasted over an hour, and it was not a very “successful” wax job. During my first visit with Tracy, I immediately felt comfortable with her, and she was done in 15 minutes. I have been coming back on a monthly basis now and get great results every time. She is quick, knows what she is doing, and does a great job of making you feel comfortable during the whole process. Tracy is the best, and one time with her will make you keep coming back!”
Rachel M. -- Kenmore, NY
“Awesome experience here! I will definitely come back again. I felt very comfortable and Tracy was very friendly. It was my first bikini wax and the fact that she walked me through it made me feel much more relaxed.”
