Tracy Butler-Holdaway


Clinician (Nurse)

Tracy grew up in Northland where she trained as a nurse, and has travelled and worked extensively throughout Australia and the United Kingdom.

Throughout her nursing career, Tracy observed many people with unsightly nails who were frustrated by the lack of available treatment options and their resulting poor outcomes.

“Over my years in nursing, I’ve found so many pharmacological options can be harsh or cumbersome for patients and don’t provide the best outcome. There are better solutions, particularly for those with fingernail pathology as this is difficult to hide and can be incredibly embarrassing.”

Tracy believes in ensuring people receive the most appropriate treatment and is passionate about innovative technologies such as the Lunula cold laser which optimises a patient's immune and circulatory systems to eradicate fungal infections.
