Trudy’s pool is truly a sacred healing place for me. Her presence in the water combines both the yin and yang aspects of this healing “dance”. At times I feel energetic pathways opening as I relax into a very peaceful place and other times I feel the playfulness of a sea creature returning to its aquatic home, free, buoyant and happy. I usually leave her space feeling very reconnected to who I really am and to “all that is."

WATSU® sessions with Trudy are always a healing and rejuvenating experience. The beautiful, peaceful environment she has created in her pool room and her gentle and giving spirit work together to make her sessions a pure pleasure. When I discipline myself to schedule regular appointments instead of random occasional visits, I can feel the increased flexibility in all my joints building with every session.

With the assistance of water, Trudy helps you remember the splendor that exists in your soul. Her passion is to create a sacred space for you with WATSU®. She will connect with you in the pool with water massage to bring forth nurturing, spirituality and healing. Thank God she has the courage and wisdom to know how to bring individuals to a place within themselves to see how magnificent we truly are. After one session with Trudy I was more relaxed, rejuvenated and peaceful. We all owe it to ourselves to connect with and appreciate our bodies. Yes, and keep coming back for more.

My first experience with Hydro-therapy was after my surgeries in the mid 1980’s. This was to provide an environment in which the almost weightless effect of water would help my body to regain movement through exercise.
The therapy provided by Trudy at Celestial Seahorse is the best of the water therapies that I have experienced thus far. This is a whole body experience which integrates the support of the water with the support of the therapist. She seems to sense the needs of my body, how to loosen the muscles and providing movement that has left long-term benefits including a lengthening of my posture after the sessions.
The water therapy sessions with Trudy are much better than the simple sessions of massage that most dry therapists provide with a longer sense of relief.

Suffering from tendonitis due to years running a chain saw and playing guitar, I have found WATSU® at Celestial Seahorse to provide relief from the pain and stiffness. The stretching and almost weightlessness of the sessions are amazing and I can only compare the experience to floating on a wave through the ocean or space. In addition to the loosening and stretching, I find the water to have a healing aspect as well so you leave a session feeling invigorated and cleansed. Anyone suffering from muscle, joint, tendon, or back pain should absolutely try a session at Celestial Seahorse.

Trudy's WATSU® bodywork is truly magical. I feel relaxed in a way with WATSU® that I haven't felt in traditional massage. Being in the water, weightless and warm-there is nothing like it for the deepest relaxation..I would describe it as spiritual. I feel very safe in Trudy's care; I cannot recommend her work enough.

I just completed my 18th session with a weekly client and kindly asked if she would like to consider sessions every other week. She looked at me confused and said, “Why would I want to do that? This is the only thing that IS working!” There is an energy in water that is incredibly dynamic and therapeutic. I am blessed to carry the flame of WATSU®!

I recommend Celestial Seahorse’s WATSU® water massage by Trudy. Anyone with back or muscle pain would greatly benefit from this amazing water massage. The warm water and stretching movements relieved my lower back pain immediately. I experienced total muscle relaxation and emotional calm from my session.

Trudy and WATSU® have spoiled me. It is amazing the amount of release that occurs in the water compared to on a table. Gentle. Flow. Calm. Peace. In many ways WATSU® is indescribable. Your body is effortlessly supported by warm, soothing water, which allows for all of your muscles and joints to relax and for your mind to let go. Trudy is a very gentle guide and spirit who is in tune with the needs of your body and therefore each session is different. I highly recommend Trudy and her inviting pool to anyone who suffers from chronic pain and headaches.
Trudy is an intuitive healer. I felt very safe, both physically and emotionally. It is a magical, healing environment that supports relaxation, and relieved my muscle spasms and joint pains in a gentle soothing way.

Imagine floating in the warm womb of a loving mother. That is the best way I can describe WATSU®. Although technically a mix of the two words Water and Shiatsu, this water massage technique beats the best of float spas. While floating weightlessly in a warm therapy pool, Trudy moves your body effortlessly as it glides through the water. She is such a professional that I am able to go into a meditation and leave the physical world for her to take care of.
Each time a session ends, I feel clear and cleaned of any negative thoughts or energies. It's like a bath for the soul, reflexology and the best massage you'll ever get... all wrapped up in one! The physical benefits are amazing. I came to Trudy after years of chronic pain. I'm pleased to announce that my pain levels are way down, and I have more energy than before. Highly recommend!!

Right away, Trudy's bubbly personality put me at ease. Sinking into the brand new pool with the deep blue-gray colors and the beautiful atmosphere, I felt like I'd entered the mermaids grotto. All my stress began to melt away.
Being floated by Trudy, I felt like I was in such a safe space. I've experienced a lot of trauma, so feeling safe and being able to trust Trudy is very important to me. Her touch is very reassuring and calming. She must have great intuition, because Trudy knew exactly what my body was craving - lots of back bends, stretching out my computer back. My body felt amazing! I remember imagining I was a dolphin swimming through the deep ocean waters. It was both relaxing and therapeutic at the same time. I felt a profound sense of peace. My body retained the experience long after the session. I highly recommend Trudy.
