Jesus said for his followers toJesus told his followers to “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.” Adhering to what Jesus said and did, Christian Science Practitioners use their time healing others.
How Does Healing Take Place in Christian Science?
That's a wonderful question.
Mary Baker Eddy, the spiritual leader 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 instructed through Christian Science primary class instruction, in addition to yearly continuing education. Practitioners are experienced in healing through prayer. They study extensively the Bible together with the Christian Science textbook – Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
Working with the healing power of God, available to anyone and everyone as proven in Christian Science, practitioners help women, men and children across the globe.
Christian Science healing does not entail counseling, physical touch or drugs. The practitioner does not advise a patient or guide them. The practitioner is, however, 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
Where Does Christian Science Treatment Go On?
Just Like Christ Jesus did not have to be in person to heal sick individuals, you do not need to be present with a practitioner to be healed. Jesus affirmed 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 one another.
“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 prefer a practitioner to visit your house, many practitioners can arrange to travel to you. Other practitioners maintain public offices where you can visit them in person. A vast majority of practitioners give Christian Science treatments from their own homes. Their patients can be right down the road or 1000s of miles away.
Have You Had Healings Because of 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 a religion and is rather the provable laws of divine healing as demonstrated by Christ Jesus, anyone has the ability to make use of these divine laws for healing. Just as anyone has the potential 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 presenting from Science and Health along with from the Bible.
Quite a few denominations today, besides the Churches of Christ, Scientist, use the teachings in Science and Health in their preachings.

How Much Is A Christian Science Treatment?
Payment for Christian Science Treatment is on a donation basis. Your inner guidance will lead you as to what donation amount feels right to you.
“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 for your treatments 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 child of God. This understanding of Truth heals the sick.
