Spiritual Mind Treatment Sessions and Counselling

The Oak Park Church of Religious Science has licensed practitioners and practitioners-in-training who are available to assist you through any challenge you may be facing.

The fee for licensed practitioners is $40 for a half-hour session. Intern-practitioners provide their services at no charge.

No one will be turned down for treatment work because of their inability to pay.

To contact a particular practitioner, see our STAFF page for contact information. You may also call the Center prior to Noon Healing Meditation (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm) to speak directly to a practitioner, or leave a message at any time. You may also use our online Treatment Request form.
