With around twenty years’ experience as a professional homeopath and Bowen therapist, Louise Armitage has an extensive background in natural healing. Born in Adelaide (Australia) in 1960, her interest in natural health and spirituality started in her late teens, when she bought a copy of the I Ching. But it wasn’t until 1995–and after winding a career path through both education and marketing communications–that she left the mainstream working world to pursue her career as a natural healer.
Her interest in mind/body/spirit healing was born out of her own personal work and the holistic healing principles she learned from homeopathic medicine. In her work, she brings together her healing, teaching and communications skills to help people with their health issues and take control of their own wellbeing. But her driving interest is to help people discover the vital connections between their physical wellbeing, emotional landscape and spiritual nature to help them discover how this rich interplay relates to their life experience.
As a professional healer, Louise has devoted her efforts to helping people by working in private practice. This included a decade working in semi-remote South Australia, an experience presenting her with challenges quite different from those posed by a city-based practice.
Louise’s qualifications include a Bachelor of Education, Advanced Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and a Diploma of Bowen Therapy (Bowtech). Her other natural healing studies include Homeopathic Facial Analysis (HFA), Western herbal medicine and nutrition. In 2001, she was awarded the Warren Brauer Memorial Award for excellence in homeopathy and medical science, while in 2007 she was a contributing author to Linlee Jordan’s book Challenging Children-Success with Homeopathy. Louise currently works in regional South Australia.
