RECOMMENDATIONS

“I have had the great privilege of serving with Sandra during special ten day retreats designed to provide intensive care for pastor couples. Her ministry effectively brings together the body, soul, and spirit in a way that provides a powerful ministry to the whole person. Sandra is experienced, sensitive, focused, and gifted as she draws upon her backgrounds in massage and healing prayer ministry. The men and women who have allowed her to guide them prayerfully through a massage experience testify to the person that the results have been truly liberating, integrating, and powerful.

 

I believe God uses Sandra in this unique way for a purpose – as a pioneer showing how we can honor His genius in making us embodied human beings who bear His image and who respond to life in all dimensions. What Sandra provides, in a word, is really good for people! As an experienced professional Christian Counselor and Pastor I believe Sandra to be sound in the faith, alive to the Holy Spirit, and skilled in her art. I am pleased to endorse her work and service without reservation.“ — Bill Faris, MPC

“The personal healing I experienced at the Pastor’s Sabbath Retreat was unlike any other I had before. I met with a counselor, spiritual director and received incredible healing through massage and prophetic prayer. I was a mess when I arrived and through the care provided for my entire being – body, emotions and heart – I literally left transformed with so much hope and vitality.” – Rose Swetman, Northwest Regional Leader, Vineyard Church

...

In her work as a massage therapist and prayer counselor, Sandie Brock is providing an essential service in the field of wholistic healthcare. I enjoy collaborating with Sandie as I have found her to be a therapist who uses good judgment and wisdom with her clients and continues to keep current with developments in the field. Sandie is particularly sensitive to dissociative issues and I have found her to be an invaluable referral resource in helping provide the full range of services clients need. — Cheryl White-Schaeffner, Psychologist. Advanced Practice Nurse.

“If you’re looking for healing /massage, I’d recommend you contact Sandie Brock. Sandie is extremely gifted in this art. Many of our guests at The Convent have been to her for mfr/prayer and have felt it was a life changing event. She’s also trained and gifted in inner healing prayer if you prefer to go that route without the bodywork” – Jody Nixon, The Convent/Sustainable Faith. www.sustainablefaith.com

Sandie Brock is a deep well of gracious life and hope. I’ve known and received ministry with Sandie for nearly 20 years now. She listens with compassion and helps warmly guide to the next brave step towards freedom and more wholeness. She calmly and confidently instills courage in the rough spots of life and pain. She helps to see and find Hope in the darkest of situations. Every call, every visit leaves me with clearer vision forward on the journey of life.  – Rebecca DeVencenzi

“I have had the experience of praying with Sandie many times, over several years. In one particular session, her wisdom, acceptance, and gentleness allowed me to feel supported while making a life-altering choice. I was less than two days away from moving out of state—no job, no residence, and no sense of ease regarding my decision to seek out new growth opportunities. I really wanted someone to tell me my desire was good and I would be fine. However, as she had done consistently in all our prayer sessions, Sandie invited me to listen for God’s truth being made known to me.

I was surprised, shocked almost, to notice so quickly the sense of assurance I received when a Scripture came to mind. As I turned to look it up, I was reminded that God has guided me through previous life changes that seemed like walking into the unknown at the time. And in all those circumstances, He had been faithful and I learned more of His character. When the session ended, I didn’t have more details about what would come next for me. Yet, I had more certainty that I could receive peace in God’s presence every step that was ahead of me.

By partnering with Sandie, I have benefitted from her stewardship of quiet moments and grown to trust God’s care for me. I have recommended friends sit with Sandie to hear truth regarding their lives, and they too have been recipients of her encouragement to trust God’s love.” – LN

“I have found each session with Sandie to be nourishing and healing. Through conversation with her past things are drawn out, and then, in prayer those things are brought to the feet of Jesus, the only true place for healing. To those people that have physical ‘touch deprivation’ I would say that Sandie is an excellent conduit for healing. She understands our human need for touch and how physical and emotional healing are so deeply intertwined. I am proud to call Sandie mentor and friend.” – Rebbeca Weller

...

“I’ve known Sandie for 25 years and throughout this time her desire has always been to bring the healing of Christ to our wounds. Sandie has sought out extensive training in inner healing prayer. I have both received prayer from her and also worked with her praying for others and my experience has been excellent. Sandie is respectful, careful, discerning and compassionate. The prayer work that she does is as a servant: by this I mean that Sandie helps people listen to the Spirit and discern the touch of God in their lives rather than imposing her own will by telling people what they should do. Throughout the prayer time Sandie gently invites people to go the next step with God and always gives them the option to slow down or end, never pushing, never manipulating.

I am a licensed independent marriage and family therapist and have been practicing for 25+ years. Talk therapy can bring good results, but for those who are open to prayer, I heartily endorse this method of healing. My own experience has brought healing and openness to areas of my life which were previously unresolved and frustrating for me. “ – David Barr, Marriage and Family Therapist

...

The work of discerning the Spirit’s movement is hard to do entirely alone. I’ve worked with Sandie as a spiritual director for several years and she has helped me through significant transitions and moments of deep healing, through listening with me and helping me listen to the Lord. As a midwife works alongside a mother to birth something new and brings calm to a time of pain, so Sandie brings that companioning presence to help birth the new things God is doing. As a leader and a follower I’m more courageous and free because of the work I’ve done with Sandie.” – Mandy Smith, Pastor and Author.

“Sandie is a thoughtful, prayerful, kind person who provides extraordinary service and is attentive to one’s needs and comfort.” – Brian Volck, Author & Pediatrician

“Sandie is warm, friendly and engaging. I felt very comfortable and welcomed during our session. More importantly, she is a good guide. She listened well, asked poignant questions, and did a wonderful job of facilitating. I came away renewed, refreshed and having experienced a long-needed breakthrough. I can’t recommend her enough.” – Jeremy Eyre

...

“Sandie is a beautiful example of a woman doing what she was made to do. With a passion for healing both on the physical and emotional/spiritual levels and a deeply compassionate heart, Sandie has found the perfect match for her abilities in therapeutic massage and inner listening. In a culture that is often slow to acknowledge the connection between our bodies and our minds/hearts, Sandie offers a refreshingly integrated gift to those she serves. I eagerly await the time I get to spend with Sandie and always feel replenished after I leave.” — Elizabeth Hatchett, principal at Betty Hatchett Design

...

Sandie is an exceptional person overall. Her God given skills and abilities with people are remarkable. She is perhaps one of the most widely connected people I know. She continues to provide deep spiritual touch, both in her massage therapy practice and her healing prayer efforts. But don’t take my word for it, call for an appointment and see for yourself. — Rusty Geverdt Pastor – North Star Church

...

Sandie is unparalleled in her network among Cincinnati area movers and shakers. Foremost, my recommendation is for her unique depth of knowledge and experience in areas of healing massage….her knowledge of how body, soul and spirit interconnect is deep and wide. Her insight is life changing! Need a breakthrough? Contact Sandie. — Pam Ping, Global Training Manager at Equipping Ministries International

...

Sandra has been a preferred massage therapist of mine for many years. Sandra is 100% professional and her ability to integrate body work with emotional/spiritual/soul work is unparalleled. There is literally nobody I’d trust more in that capacity. If you’re looking for a massage therapist with wide ranging skill, knowledge and depth you will not go wrong with Sandra.” – Kevin Rains, Owner City Center Collision
