Jesus said for his followers toJesus said for his followers to “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.” Being loyal to what Jesus said and did, Christian Science Practitioners use their time healing.
How Does Healing Come About in Christian Science?
What a terrific question.
Mary Baker Eddy, the woman who discovered Christian Science, writes in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures:
The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus’ time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation.
Christian Science practitioners are educated through Christian Science primary class instruction, along with yearly continuing education. Practitioners are experienced in healing through prayer. They study extensively the Bible as well as the Christian Science textbook – Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
Implementing the healing power of God, available to every one as proven in Christian Science, practitioners help individuals all over the globe.
Treatment does not entail counseling, physical touch or drugs. The practitioner does not advise a patient or guide them. The practitioner is, on the other hand, helping the patient open his thought to divine Truth.
“The genuine Christian Scientist is adding to his patient’s mental and moral power, and is increasing his patient’s spirituality while restoring him physically through divine Love.” ~ Mary Baker Eddy
Do I Have to go Somewhere Special for Christian Science Healing?
Just Like Christ Jesus did not have to be present to heal people who were requesting healing, you do not need to be present with a practitioner to be healed. Jesus showed healing had nothing to do with the human body and everything to do with seeing people the way God sees them instead of the way humans view each other.
“Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man, the Savior saw God’s own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick” ~Mary Baker Eddy
However, if you need a practitioner to visit your home, many practitioners can make arrangements to travel to you. Some other practitioners maintain public offices where you can have an in-person meeting. A vast majority of practitioners give Christian Science treatments from their own homes. Their patients can be right down the road or countless miles away.
Have You Had Healings Via Christian Science?
I have personally had countless healings through using Christian Science treatment. I’ve had physical, emotional and financial healings. You can read about some of them in the Christian Science periodicals and in my blogs.
Is It Necessary to Be a Christian Scientist to be Healed?
The short answer is no. Since Christian Science is not merely a religion and is rather the demonstrable laws of divine healing as explained by Christ Jesus, anyone has the opportunity to utilize these divine laws for healing. Just as anyone has the option to use the laws of mathematics or aerodynamics. Those laws do not belong to anyone and are available to everyone.
Mary Baker Eddy set up the Church of Christ, Scientist to be a place where fellow readers of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures could go and study weekly lessons in Christian Science. However, Christian Science is a Science open and available to all. Mary Baker Eddy envisioned churches of all denominations to be preaching and teaching from Science and Health as well as from the Bible.
Quite a few churches today, besides the Churches of Christ, Scientist, use the teachings in Science and Health in their sermons.

“Christian Science practitioners should make their charges for treatment equal to those of reputable physicians in their respective localities.” (from The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, by Mary Baker Eddy pg 237)
Paying a practitioner is a way to express gratitude for healing. Christian Science treatment is not simply prayer requests to God. The treatments are metaphysical treatments for your specific situation, where the practitioner helps their thought and your thought focus on the true nature of God and our relationship as the innocent children of God. This understanding of Truth heals the sick.
