Spiritual treatment and healing
Christian Science practitioners provide spiritual treatment through prayer that results in healing—which includes the resolution of relationship or financial difficulties, physical cure, and transformed lives.
Treatment is based on the Bible and the principles explained inScience and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, including the idea that there is one, all-good God, who loves and cares for each of us. Christian Science teachers are active practitioners who are also authorized to teach classes on Christian Science.
Working with a Christian Science practitioner
Christian Science practitioners are available full time to help anyone, anywhere, through prayer. They answer questions, too. Feel free to contact a practitioner by phone, email, or written letter. Many have offices where you can meet for an appointment, and most will also visit people in their homes. Christian Science practitioners are professionals and do charge for the treatment they provide. Each practitioner sets individual rates, so feel free to discuss payment with any practitioner you contact.
