Luke Norland Homeopath

Luke Norland DSH RSHom BMus
Graduated: 2018

Trained: The School of Homeopathy
Registered: The Society of Homeopaths

Online Consultations: Available

Luke grew up sharing his family home with the School of Homeopathy and has been immersed in the homeopathic way of life from day one. Having first studied classical music in London, his career path eventually brought him back to his roots in the healing arts. He is particularly interested in the active-listening role of the homeopath, providing a space for people to tell their truth and explore themselves free from any prejudice.

Since completing his diploma in holistic massage in 2010, Luke went on to train in sports and Thai massage and has been treating patients for a wide variety of health conditions for 10 years. You will find that Luke is a good listener, has a calm presence and knows how to ask questions that give you the space to open up and talk about yourself. This process in itself begins the journey of self-discovery that is intrinsic to healing. Consultations with Luke will give you an opportunity to talk about your illness so that a better understanding of what causes your problem is reached. Then he takes the time to understand your case before prescribing a remedy that is unique to you.

Your first appointment will usually last up to 90 minutes, providing ample time to explore your chief complaint, your health in general and the circumstances that have led you here. At the end of the consultation, Luke will discuss your plan going forward and will outline how many sessions you might need. A well-matched homeopathic remedy can not only alleviate your symptoms, but also act as a catalyst for a positive change in your outlook, making it easier to adapt to change.

Luke’s first training was as a classical musician; playing the French Horn since the age of 10. Music has many parallels with the healing arts: most notably the sensitivity and awareness to ‘tune in’, the ability to learn and perfect techniques, recognise patterns and to maintain professional performance standards. His experience working as a Chef has given him an enthusiasm for understanding nutrition and the importance of digestion in maintaining health whilst his work as a massage therapist gives him an excellent grounding in all kinds of musculoskeletal complaints. Luke is insured with Balens and registered with the Society of Homeopaths.
