For more than 70 years, The Original Tremont Tearoom has been an oracle. Since the Great Depression, clients have traveled to the downtown Boston spot to discover their future, fortune, and fate at the hands of a skilled psychic reader. Now under the ownership of seasoned soothsayer Alex Palermo, the Tearoom hosts a team of 13 master psychics who diligently follow the Psychic Code of Ethics as they perform various divination techniques including tea-leaf readings, tarot-card readings, palmistry, and astrological consultations during 15-, 30-, and 60-minute sessions. Along with in-studio and telephone sessions, The Original Tremont Tearoom's brood of oracles can be booked for special events so guests can giggle with delight or fall into awed silence during birthday celebrations, bachelorette parties, or Elvis-themed clock-collector gatherings. For clients looking for energy work or spiritual guidance on an ongoing basis, the center offers psychic development courses, reiki sessions, and a Wicca program.
