About Trudy

Trudy Castle, PGCert, BSc, RGN.  Fully licenced and insured to practice the following:

I came to massage in 1989 where I studied Swedish Massage at the Gerda Boyeson Massage School in London.

I have been a Registered Nurse since 1980 and I wanted to combine my interest in general health with a more holistic approach to care. Please note though, that for insurance and Nursing registration purposes I will not be able to give medical advice as part of your treatment.

I had been interested in alternative health, alternative medicine and spirituality for many years and found that body work enabled me to continue to nurture those qualities of compassion and empathy that I use as a Nurse in a more intuitive, and spiritual way.

Mind, Body Connection

I have a real interest in the connection between the mind, the emotions and the body and believe that all are strongly interconnected.

The bodywork I offer comes from the heart and is delivered with concentration, care, knowledge and skill.

I have also trained in the HEARTS process at the Christie Hospital and currently offer this in Hospice settings and for my own for people with anxiety. This treatment can also be offered with Trauma Discharge massage.

I continually update myself and attend annual Bodywork CPD courses. I am currently studying Dream Therapy and analysis to enable interpretation of dreams and nightmares to gain powerful insights into yourself and your life. I am guided through difficult periods of life by the teachings of philosophers like Eckhart Tolle, Gary Zukav and Deepak Chopra.

Please note, if you cancel within 24 hours of your appointment, fees will apply. (Contact me for details)


As an experienced bodyworker I will:

Ask you want you need from the treatment.

I will listen to your body, I will approach you with my heart, I will speak to your nervous system and the soft tissues in your body will feel that connection.


I find peace ,joy and solace in the natural world around me and our changing seasons I am lucky enough to live close to the woodlands with wonderful views down the valley.

I have a garden that I love and my house is situated in a wildlife corridor.

You are very welcome to rest awhile in my garden after your massage on fine days. I might even make you a cuppa.
