Your first appointment includes a consultation to determine a Chinese medical diagnosis and the appropriate treatment plan. A combination of cupping, moxibustion , and/or electric stimulation could be included with your acupuncture treatment.

"Theresa is amazing! Tarot can be intimidating for beginners, but not with Theresa. She makes tarot very approachable and fun. Her White Sage Tarot deck is beautiful. The soft, gentle colors reflect her warm, kind personality. I highly recommend a session with Theresa! -Kristy, Minnesota
"An amazing deck. This deck is everything I hoped and more. The imagery is so unique: it's whimsical and totally charming, yet also wholly life-affirming and evocative with its rich and thoughtful symbolism. I love how poignant a sloth wearing a hoodie (the hermit!) has become in this deck. The additions of chakra colors to the backgrounds of some cards is also a cool new spin I haven't seen before. It's totally magical and an absolute must for beginners and seasoned readers. Lovely, lovely body of work. - Reisse, Minnesota
