Dr. Tracey Cook, ND, LAc

Allium Naturopathic Health Orrville, Ohio


Dr. Tracey Cook was born and raised in Orrville, OH.  For 15 years she owned and operated TLC Massotherapy in her hometown as a licensed massage therapist, but realized that massage therapy was only part of the solution as she was not able to get to the root cause of her patients pain and illness.  This led her to Naturopathic Medicine.  After completing her BS in biology through the University of Akron graduating summa cum laude, she then graduated with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and her Masters in Acupuncture from the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture.
