The men and women who advertise in the directories of the Christian Science Journal and Herald represent that they are devoted full-time to helping others through the prayer-based system explained in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, experienced in the healing ministry of Christian Science, and available to give treatment through prayer for life challenges.
Additional services may include office visits, in-home or care facility visits, and answers to questions about Christian Science by phone, email, or written correspondence. The services offered by practitioners are available to the public. Those who contact a practitioner listed in this directory do not have to be Christian Scientists or attend church.
Practitioners (CS) and teachers (CSB) are self-employed. Fees and payment are determined by the individual practitioner and should be discussed prior to engaging their services.
Those interested in learning an in-depth and systematic approach to practicing the method of healing explained in Science and Health may want to take a course of instruction from a practitioner who is also an authorized Christian Science teacher.
Application requirements, as well as when and where instruction is given, the format of the class sessions, and costs should be directly discussed with the teacher.
