+1 for C

Split 1:
'which' should modify 'something'

Eliminate A and E.

Split 2:
Not only X But also Y. We should have X and Y in parallel form.

Not only achieve but also improve is the correct usage.

Eliminate B and D.

Visualization of mental images is a central concept in the Bates method—something not only which could achieve a state of inner balance and relaxation, but improving focus, eye coordination, blood circulation, and eye movement control.

(A) something not only which could achieve a state of inner balance and relaxation, but improving
--Not only X but also Y is the correct idiom where X and Y should be parallel.
--Not only X but Y denotes contrast. The intended meaning here is not to show contrast

(B) something which not only could achieve a state of inner balance and relaxation, but also to improve
--Not only X but also Y is the correct idiom where X and Y should be parallel.
--X = could achieve ..... Y = to improve. These 2 are not parallel.

(C) something which could not only achieve a state of inner balance and relaxation, but also improve
CORRECT

(D)that being something which could not only achieve a state of inner balance and relaxation, but also improving
--"that being" has no role here.
--Not only X but also Y is the correct idiom where X and Y should be parallel.
--X = achieve ..... Y = improving. These 2 are not parallel.

(E) being something not only which could achieve a state of inner balance and relaxation, but improve
--"being" has no role here. It does not add any value
--Not only X but also Y is the correct idiom where X and Y should be parallel.
--X = which could achieve Y = improve. NOT parallel.

Not only verb, but also verb

Only C maintains parallelism.

Answer C - Used Not only and but also parallelism and only this one suits.

(C) something which could not only achieve a state of inner balance and relaxation, but also improve.

ADE fail this test. Also between B&C, B fails the parallelism ..
