Sandy Schell, ACST, LWC


I had fallen in my kitchen one night while cooking dinner (falling and bumping into things has been a pretty regular occurrence for me throughout my life), and over the next few days, I began noticing that I felt like I was in a fog.  I had a headache every day that would develop during the afternoon and wouldn’t go away until I went to sleep.  I went to my doctor, and after some tests, he told me I had a concussion, and that I should go home and rest for a few days, which I did.  I took a week off work and stayed home and did very little. But things didn’t get much better.  

In the next few weeks, I began to have times of blurred vision, and would feel dizzy, sometimes even nauseous. It wasn’t until I began having tremors in my hands that I really thought anything was really “wrong”.  Back to the doctor, who sent me to a neurologist…and more tests.  The neurologist said I had a Post Concussive Syndrome.  He explained that especially in the case of numerous accidents, falls, or injuries, people sometimes don’t fully recover.  I was sent home with instructions to “wait and see over the next 90 days”.  

Something inside me said that I should do more than just wait and see.  I talked with a gf who said I should see Sandy, that she could help my body get back to normal.  I did some research, and gave Sandy a try.

During the first session, I felt energy moving all over the place in my body.  And, at some point, I felt the pressure in my head release somewhat.  Over the next week, I noticed the daily headaches happened only twice, and they weren’t nearly as severe.  One of the things that Sandy brought to my attention was the possibility that a car accident that I was involved in a few years ago, as well as previous falls and stumbles I’d experienced could have been part of why I was having so many issues all the sudden that weren’t healing up the way they should.

I saw Sandy weekly, and after each session I felt better – more and more like my self again.  My thinking became clearer, my energy came back, and the tremors went away.  The headaches have disappeared and I no longer get dizzy.  I feel like my life has gotten back to normal again.  And if I ever even so much as stub my toe in the future, I know Sandy will be there to help me.”  --Cassie H., Clearwater, FL

“Earlier this year I moved.  I have moved many times before with only minor aches and pains for a day or two.  This last move nearly killed me.  I was in extreme pain and I wondered…is it my age?  Am I “too old for this”? 


For a full week I could barely move my legs.  My whole body ached and I felt heavy and sluggish.  Fed up, I made an appointment with Sandy.  After one cranio-sacral session I felt much better.  My legs weren’t nearly as stiff and I felt like my blood was circulating again.   Sandy also prepared for me a customized self-care report to further restore my overall health that included recommendations in dietary habits.  The change is incredible. 


A week before I saw Sandy I thought my body was giving out on me.  I was really concerned my symptoms were age related and irreversible.  I’ve been following Sandy’s plan for 3 weeks and my legs feel strong!  I have tons of energy, I look healthy, and I feel 10 years younger.  The best part – I don’t feel “relieved”, I feel “HEALED” and that is a wonderful feeling!

The impact the cranio-sacral session and self-care recommendations have had on my life moving forward have been greatly beyond what I had hoped for.  My business requires a whole lot of creativity.  It’s difficult to work when I am in pain.  Now I have renewed energy, the ideas are flowing, and clients are getting great content.  It’s a huge win-win.

Sandy’s self-care report is priceless.  Sandy’s expertise guides you to choices that support the specific healing your body needs.  It’s a masterpiece!”   Liz M Lopez,Writer & Website Content Expert, Gulfport, FL

“After bringing my daughter to Sandy for unexplained body twitches, I'm so happy to say that the twitches are almost completely gone. Don't know how she does it and can't explain the process but it works because we did nothing else while ruling out anything serious with medical tests. Told the neurologist about Sandy's help and he was amazed, as well”.  Evvy Bernstein, Realtor, Seminole, FL

“Dear Sandy, from the time I spoke with you about your health and wellness coaching programs, and my ongoing issues with weight due to menopause and the hormone replacements that have become necessary after trying for 8 years through the alternative methods, and subsequently my year with foot surgeries etc etc., I was so thankful for the time you spent providing some basic information and encouragement.  I was so impressed and have subsequently utilized your services since.


I would really like to thank you and also hope to provide others with a recommendation for your services.  What I find so gratifying is the wealth of knowledge that you possess, but more importantly, your ability to explain and present the information in a way that is so understandable and makes sense that its hard not to set ourselves up for success. I will be honest, I even double checked with my Primary Care Physician and he is totally on board with all that you’ve set forth.


Your explanation about the body functions, its influence and interactive capacity to our physical and mental health, is astounding.  We hear tidbits of this and that from various sources, but you have really vast knowledge and information that puts it in context that not only make sense, but also works!


On a personal note, with your guidance over the past 2 months I have lost more than 13 lbs! Through our phone coaching sessions, I am always exhilarated to continue and never feel put down. You are a very positive influence and even my co workers that I have shared some of you wisdom with have noticed a difference in my attitude and desire to achieve my goals.  Your continued and constant encouragement, combined with a "get real" attitude are what will keep me focused and motivated to continue til I am successful and have reached my goals.


Thru your recommendations I have made huge strides in every aspect of my life.  I have noticed an increase in mood stabilization and energy levels, along with the weight loss.  I FEEL THE DIFFERENCE.  And it isn't rocket science or a crazy schedule or weird foods etc...it just makes sense and works!    Once you get that feeling of well being, and it is soooo good; your body and mind and energy and health and mood all improve, and then you want more of it, every day!


In closing, Sandy you are not only a wonderfully, talented and experienced, knowledgeable professional in your field, you are also kind, yet realistic, but always caring and wiling to go the extra step.  I very much appreciate your work with the utmost confidence in your abilities and recommendations, and am looking forward to an extended relationship until I reach my goal which for me will take about a year.  Then you just may be stuck with me for a "maintenance" program!! lol


Feel free to use my name as a reference.  As I say and its so true for you:  WHEN YOU’RE GOOD... YOU’RE GOOD!!  Hugs for Suki too!   Thanks so much Sandy!”   Mari Sorenson, Property Manager, Chicago, IL

“I've lived with chronic pain since 1977 due to a car accident. Prior to meeting Sandy, I'd tried many ways to relieve it with limited success. Sandy has been amazing in helping me overcome and manage my widespread chronic pain in my neck, shoulders, back and hips. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field. If you have aches and pains that linger and need relief, please try Sandy!”     Tina Brogdon, Madeira Beach, FL

“My wife Lisa suffered from migraine headaches that would last 2-3 days. Took Lisa to ER many times. Even to chiropractic. No one was able to help. Sandy performed a miracle. Lisa has not had a migraine in over 3 years.  I highly recommend Sandy. She is wonderful. I just wish we knew Sandy long ago.”   Kerry Kalman, Copiers Etc

“Sandy, you are my health angel! I had a stroke in August of 2009. While I could move my left arm and hand, I was, however, numb from the top of my head to my hip on my left side. The doctors ran every test and in the end they could find nothing that was causing the numbness. I could not pick up things and hold onto them. I tried various exercises and treatments, but they did not relieve the numbness. I then heard about Sandy through a paramedic who said I should give it a try. I was skeptical at first, but I decided to give it a shot. I saw Sandy for two months, and to my amazement I have almost 90% feeling back. I can use my arm and hand again, and do things I had not done in a long time. Sandy made me feel like a functional person again and that is a great feeling! I recommend her to everyone who has a medical condition that seems impossible. Thank you Sandy!"  Roger Jones, Atlanta, GA

“I had a frozen shoulder with pain and numbness down my arm for nearly 2 years. There were many things I couldn’t do anymore, and I had gained weight because I couldn't work out. I tried so many therapies with little relief. Then I saw Sandy, and after 1 session I began to feel better. After 4 sessions I’m now 95% better. No pain, no numbness. I can move my arm in any direction. I’m back to teaching and working out, and I’m losing this excess weight! And I’m sleeping comfortably and soundly through the night. I’m traveling to Hawaii soon, a trip I’d been putting off because of the pain and fear of making my shoulder worse. I can live my life again with confidence and joy, thanks to Sandy!”    Diane Billman, Clearwater, FL

“Sandy does phenomenal work. If you have anything that ails you, I highly recommend a visit to Sandy. She has the magic touch and you will feel so much better after your treatment.”   Dave Henning, Tampa, FL

I had severe, debilitating headaches that kept me from working steadily for many years. My wife has had to work 2 jobs to support our family. I tried other therapies with no relief. I saw Sandy for 2 sessions and I’m astonished and so thankful that I’ve not had a headache since! I’m now looking for a full-time job, so my wife can stop carrying the whole load. I’ve been going to my son’s baseball games again. I’ve been sleeping well and I have much more energy. I'm back to being my old self again. My family and I are excited about our future again. Thank you Sandy!    Don, Largo, FL

“I had TMJ and an ear infection. Sandy was able to release them both so I could travel and work.  I am so thankful for you, Sandy!”   Rene Ortiz, Clearwater, FL

“I had Trigeminal Neuralgia, which began in the early 1990's. I went to every doctor and dentist imaginable and got as many answers. I tried many different remedies from drugs to chiropractics, with very little results. The pain felt like to having a spike placed under my jaw bone and then slammed in with a sledge hammer – it came on suddenly, took my breath away, and would make my knees buckle and left me shaking for hours afterwards. I could barely work. Life was a nightmare! I could barely lift my head off the pillow some mornings, and often wondered how long I could go on if this pain continued. I finally went to Sandy as a referral from my massage therapist. I didn't believe that CranioSacral Therapy could help me, and it took a series of sessions, but I am now completely pain free, and have been for a few years now! No more drugs, no more wondering how I’d go on. I’m enjoying my work again and I’m traveling again. Best of all - I’m smiling again! If it wasn’t for Sandy, I don’t know where I’d be today! With all my heart I truly recommend her services!”   Penny Druce, Maine

“You, my dear, are a miracle worker!”   Kae Yauchler, Active Security, Seminole, FL

“I went to Body Wisdom CranioSacral Therapy seeking relief for severe insomnia. I had tried numerous other solutions, to no effect. Sandy turned out to be the ticket for me. I am able to get to sleep and sleep well for the first time in years.”   Jim Alexander, Largo, FL

“I had been diagnosed with vertigo and had tried many things that gave me only temporary relief. I saw Sandy for a few visits and I’m happy to say that I’m back to work and can go boating again too.  Thank you Sandy!”   Tracy K., Ann Arbor, MI

“I went to see Sandy the first time as a gift from a dear friend, and ended up enjoying the session so much that I booked additional sessions.  Sandy’s gifts are amazing, and she has helped me immensely with my anxiety.  I leave her office feeling like all the weight has been lifted off me, and she has been able to release my anxiety enough that now I sleep well and enjoy my life so much more than I used to.”  Eileen, Ontario, Canada

“I discovered the healing power of CranioSacral Therapy when I went to see Sandy for pain in my sciatic nerve.  Sandy helped me walk again without pain, and she also helped me with my blood pressure, which is close to normal now after seeing Sandy.  I am so grateful to have found you.”  Taylor, Orlando, FL

“Sandy has done so much to alleviate the daily headaches I used to get.  Every day I used to get piercing headaches behind my eyes, and they would get really bad during “that time of the month”.  After seeing Sandy for a few months, the headaches are completely gone!  Looking back I see how much those headaches interfered with my life, and I’m eternally thankful to Sandy for my new life!”  Barbara Meyer, PhD, Tampa, FL

“I have fibromyalgia, and suffer from chronic muscle pain and headaches.  Being a retired RN, I knew that I needed to find something beyond medications and the damaging side effects.  I am so happy to have found Sandy through a friend.  Sandy really listened to my concerns and explained CranioSacral Therapy to me, and what she was doing during the sessions.  The sessions with Sandy have increased my mobility, reduced my symptoms, and have vastly reduced the levels of medications that I take.  I highly recommend her!”  Jill F., RN, St. Petersburg, FL

“I was diagnosed with RSD, a terribly painful condition, in 2009.  Daily doses of hydrcodone were giving me minor seizures, and I knew the long term would be even worse pain, addiction, and maybe even death.  I went to see Sandy on the recommendation of my doctor.  I was skeptical at first, but I was also willing to try just about anything to get the pain to go away.  In the first month of going to see Sandy, I started feeling less pain in the mornings, but by midday I was in pain again.  After another month of seeing Sandy, I was waking up with much less pain - still pain during the day, but happy for the periods of time in the mornings that the pain wasn’t so bad.  After seeing Sandy for almost 5 months, I have much less pain most days - not all, some are still bad.  I’ve started writing again and taking walks too.  My husband smiles more and worries less and so do I.  I am hopeful that over time Sandy’s gifts will allow me to have more days of living without pain.  I thank God every day for my doctor who pushed me to go see Sandy in the beginning (he really had to push), and for the miracles Sandy has been able to perform for me.” Theresa F., Clearwater, FL

“I had dizzy spells after getting a concussion, and went to see Sandy twice.  She was able to make them go away and they haven’t come back since.” Richard T., Largo, FL
