— The Directory Services of the Christian Science Journal provided by the On-line Directory Services Web Site How many treatments are necessary?
When I receive a new case, I accept it for one day because I expect immediate results. What is a typical Christian Science Practitioner’s rate?
Christian Science Practitioners usually charge between $15-$40 per session. Their rates are self-determined and are not typically based on the duration or depth of experience required. How can I find a Christian Science Practitioner?
A listing of practitioners can be located in the back pages of The Christian Science Journal. Or you can search on-line for a local Christian Science Reading Room (book store). Do the patient and practitioner need to be together for treatment?
No. However in cases involving children, I often ask to visit the home whenever possible. Are treatments confidential?
Yes. There is a strict ethics code of confidentiality for all Christian Science Practitioners. christiecs.com

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peace-makers, for they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”    — Matthew 5:3 – 5:10, (NAS)
