At the beginning of Tracey Byer’s sessions, “she’ll ask if she can see your tongue,” says client Yana Volfson, the beverage director at Cosme and Atla. (“The tongue is a canvas of what’s going on in your mind and body,” Volfson says.) Byer’s healing methods are less about making predictions than about balancing chakras, which she does not only by talking her clients through the issues on their mind but also by giving them body treatments, as she is a licensed acupuncturist, massage therapist, and aesthetician with an office in Gramercy. (You don’t have to go in to see her with a particular treatment in mind, says Volfson; the decision can be made based on how you’re feeling in your body at that moment.) “I don’t need to know my future. I’m not one of those people,” says Byer’s client Wendy Credle, an entertainment attorney and TV producer. Rather, Byer has helped her address what’s going on in the here and now: “She clued me in on where I was self-sabotaging and blocking,” Credle says. She can incorporate microneedling, aromatherapy, and cupping into her sessions, too (from $108 per hour).
