Natalie Keegan trained at the Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust and has since specialised in working with pregnant mothers and babies, visceral intelligence and neurology in practice.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands-on therapy which has its roots in osteopathy and can help with many physical and emotional problems in mothers and in babies.
As a practitioner, Natalie is deeply holistic and intuitive. Her treatments are one-to-one with mothers and/or babies – usually involving home visits – and she works in the Brighton and Lewes area.
First treatments after birthing deeply relax mothers and often give them a renewed sense of themselves and their bodies. Babies also benefit greatly from a craniosacral treatment, helping them to unlock subtle problems associated with their birth that, if left untreated, can cause trauma later on.
Natalie also runs relaxation, painting and meditation classes for pregnant women and meditation and movement classes for mixed groups. She has two daughters and works in schools teaching art classes as well as creating interactive art installations from natural materials,at outdoor events.
My son Erroll and I went on our Mamaheaven retreat when he was six months old. From the moment we arrived he was beaming, sitting on the bed in our lovely light, airy room and smiling out at the views of the sky, gardens and surrounding countryside. The venue was ideal, spacious and clean with interiors that inspired without being overwhelming. I have a very restricted diet, but all of the meals that I was served were delicious and nourishing. Erroll loved the crèche and enjoyed spending time around all of the other babies. There was not a session of massage or yoga, nor any of the other therapies that we did not enjoy. Many of these sessions were revitalising, energising and refreshing. A few were deeply moving, providing insight and reflection. I found peace and an awareness of self that had eluded me since the birth of my son, as well as the time and space for us to enjoy one another away from the pressures of home.
