We are a 501(c)3 non-profit and provide sliding scale to our clients who are in hardship and limited income below $24K household income a year.  All are minimum donation rates and you may decide to give more if you feel you have greatly benefited from the work.  You may tip any of our volunteers/ therapist, please clearly inform them it is a tip verses additional donation.  Additional donations may be written off as a tax donation but the minimum is considered in-kind and cannot be deducted for tax purposes.  See your tax person for further information.

Credit cards are accepted on this website and should be used prior to the session.  There is no way to process credit card transactions at the office.  At the office use cash or checks.   Checks can also be mailed to our business address.  Some weekly clients are invoiced monthly with an initial retainer.   If interested in this option, please contact the office.

After the session you may have received unexpected benefit and want to make an additional donation, we encourage you do that as a way to honor and show gratitude to God.   These additional heartfelt donations are tax deductible because it is above our in-kind service prices.  You can do a donation at anytime using the donation button at the website and enter the amount set by your heart.

Typically our price is set as $1 a minute for healing with two main sessions of 2 hours ($120) and 90 minutes($90).   The 2 hour session can take between 90 and 120 minutes while the 90 minute session can take between 60 and 90 minutes. Sometimes a session takes longer to complete what your spirit wants.  Remember this is not a typical getting on the table and we’ll run through a procedure type of work.  Occasionally a session will go  short and the person’s spirit will be done in a 15-20 minutes and the healer may do some relaxing bodywork to help the spirit work be accepted.

All clients start with a $120 intake session.  This session is between 1.5 and 2 hours and is designed to establish goals, set up a plan and do an initial energy clearing and balance.  This prepares the person for deeper work in future sessions.  Usually individuals will choose to come once or twice a month to start and gradually wean to monthly or every six weeks until they feel they can go on their own.   One of our goals is to help the individual to be self supporting and will teach self care techniques.  At some point they usually drop down to quarterly and then yearly unless they wish to come more frequent for relaxation. We recommend a yearly check in to clear any accumulated negative energy during the year.

For those over 65 or those with hardship situations expect to donate between $60 and $80.  All others donate a minimum of $90-$120 for a session (up to 1.5 hours) and $120-$200 for extended session (up to 2 hours).   Travel costs for anything over 10 miles is $1 a mile from the Phoenixville office site.  This includes weddings and working with those in hospitals or home.

A typical session can take between 60 and 90 minutes depending on what your spirit wants to work on for the session and how long it takes you to come down enough to drive.  Many clients get a healing high as they go into the healing zone. You will never be sent out from a session in a high state. You will be offered water and you are welcome to bring a snack especially if you know you go into the healing zone quickly.

For Ceremonies $120 up to an hour plus travel costs.
Includes house clearings/blessings, naming ceremonies, funerals/memories(pets too), divorce ceremonies, and life celebration ceremonies after surviving something like cancer or a major transition in life like opening or closing a business.

Office Space Rental

In general $20/hour first two hours and $10/hour after for an event.  i.e. a 5 hour time slot is $70.  Rates get lower if you are a regular therapist working out of the office or if you are a non-profit.


Our minimum donation rates are set below market value for the Philadelphia area for the level of services you receive.  We consider contributions as gifts to God.  We set fee amounts to keep the organization operational. We accept heart felt gifts without services at anytime.  All contributions are used to continue the ministry and set up grants for those who cannot afford the minimal amount.

If you would like to set up a special grant please speak to us. If you find being gifted with a life improvement consider a more extensive donation as a thank you gift if your heart is joyed to do so.

When giving a gift for spiritual healing you should ask yourself what would you give to have this issue in your life resolved.  Not always, but often times a spiritual issue is tied to this very physical realm question because we tend to be materialistic.  It is amazing to learn that in several cultures’ a year’s salary is expected for a spiritual healing to take place!  That is way above our typical co-pay!  For example the oils used on Jesus’s feet were a year’s salary.

So ask yourself what is this worth to you and then set the gift aside in an envelop praying daily that it will be an acceptable gift to God to clear a path for your healing. All true gifts must come from the heart to be effective in heaven.

This is a very difficult concept to understand, so please do not hesitate to ask about it.  Don’t let this stop you from seeking help.

Note there are a subset of people who believe healing should be free and refuse to pay for healing services.  Pity they are losing out on something good because of their belief.   There is a balance in the world and the money exchanged for services is actually part of the healing.  One must give up something to receive something.  On the more practical side of things, rents and utilities still need to be paid for the business.  Our Master Healer has a PhD in healing and that was not free to obtain the skill.  For the Biblical person, look at Deuteronomy 9. Blessings.
