You do not have to be a Christian Scientist in
order to be healed through Christian Science. Many people have
been healed by simply reading Science and Health. Others
have gained healing with the help of a Christian Science practitioner.
Science practitioners practice purely spiritual healing in that they do not manipulate the body or employ any form of
thought control. Rather, they pray with and for the patient,
and work lovingly with him or her to open the patient's thought
to the laws of God that maintain man's health. They acknowledge
God as the source of all healing, and they see themselves as
messengers of the truth or as witnesses to what God has already
those who are interested in this healing work pursue Primary
Class Instruction in Christian Science, as it provides an in-depth,
systematic approach to understanding the scientific method of
healing explained in Science and Health. Those in the
practice of Christian Science healing may be part-time or full-time
in this work. The Christian Science Publishing Society welcomes
those applicants who have a proven record of healing and are
committed to the full-time practice and available to the public
as advertisers in The Christian Science Journal. If
the applicant fulfills the criteria, the application is processed
and forwarded for advertising in the Journal.
Science practitioners operate independently and often hold regular
office hours. You can contact a practitioner to schedule an
office visit, or work with them by phone, eMail or mail. Christian
Science practitioners charge modest fees for their services,
either by the visit, by the treatment, or by the hour. You can
ascertain a practitioner's fees before engaging them. You can
arrange for a single visit or treatment, or continue to request
help as needed. Both the practitioner and the patient should
expect healing from the treatment.
Science practitioners are also happy to answer questions you
may have about the study of Christian Science.
