About Theresa McGee
I have spent most of my life as a professional musician – pianist, organist, and conductor. So why Illumine Wellness Arts? As a music student, I was completely focused on academics and music lessons. I did not know that such a thing as energy work existed.
It was much later, when my mother was struggling to recover from surgery that I had a surprising and profound experience in helping to alleviate her symptoms.
It was this event, and others that followed, that led me to want to help lessen my loved one’s pain in whatever way I could. I began independent study of many alternative healing modalities. I took classes to gain certification in methods that produced results.
Along the way, I’ve been on my own personal healing journey. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease as a young child, back when it was considered a rare disease. As any Celiac will tell you, the disease doesn’t travel alone; so there were other, seemingly related illnesses that were also diagnosed. Then there was an accident – a fall down a flight of stairs, and the unrelenting stress of a series of devastating life events that left me depleted and battling chronic pain. I had gotten to the point where I could barely walk unassisted, and I was watching my life pass by.
Mainstream medicine was not helping, and in fact, was often part of the problem.
With nowhere to turn except to myself, I intensified my efforts to learn as much as I could about alternative healing methods. There were wonderful, intelligent, caring people that made important contributions to restoring my health. I am grateful to all of them.
And then there was Dr. Ming Wu, an herbalist and a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner. Dr. Wu changed my life in so many positive ways, but perhaps especially so with the practice of Qigong and Tai Chi. It was through the regular practice of Qigong that I was able to reclaim the strength and balance in my legs. Dr. Wu has become a mentor and a friend, whose humor and wisdom I cherish. It was through his urging, and with the encouragement of others who I had worked with, that my private practice in energy work began. After working only through referral, Illumine Wellness Arts was formed in order to better serve the growing demand of clients.
What lights you from within? Do you feel an emergence toward something greater?
You are here because you are ready for some other way of being. And I would like to facilitate that development with you. I will meet you where you are in your process, and with respect, compassion, and absolute confidentiality. To maintain clarity and integrity my style is sincere and direct. If at any point in our work together I discern that this process is not a good match for you, I promise to tell you, and to offer referral suggestions.
I am guided by the belief that we are here to learn and grow into our full potential.
I will give you practical, simple tools to master your own life. I draw upon principals of many healing modalities, integrating them into a unique approach to promote your wellness and vitality.
My goal is to support your process of transformation in body, mind, and spirit. You will begin to live consciously and with authenticity into a glowing future. It is an evolution, a progression, not a single event. As such, it’s up to you to make an ongoing commitment that will lead to greater peace, balance, and an abundant life.

What to expect in a private session
All sessions are done over the phone, Skype, or remotely (off the phone).
Our first phone contact will be a Preconsultation and fairly short – perhaps 10 minutes, and I will assess whether this process is right for you. It is an energetic experience for me where I will turn inward to see if we are a good match. If not, I will tell you up front so you do not waste your time and money, and I will make suggestions for referral. There is no charge for this Preconsultation.
The Initial Phone Consultation is required and will include a few questions. I will guide you through breath work and visualizations to a more relaxed place. Then I will turn inward to focus my awareness and intention on you. I will address the physical and non-physical origins of imbalance. There will be intervals of silence. I will check in with you periodically to let you know what has come up, and to ask about how you are doing.
If I had to summarize what I do in a single statement, it would be this: I remove obstacles.
Additional sessions will be similar to the first full session. A notable difference may be that there is significantly less talking. Throughout our work together, I will occasionally teach you to carry out simple self-healing techniques that you can practice on your own.
