Anni Dahms was born 1943 in Denmark, where she enjoyed a successful career as a qualified nurse and health practitioner. She first became interested in complementary medicine having recognised the limitations of traditional medicine, realising the potential of alternative therapies. Around this time Anni trained as a naturopath gaining extensive knowledge of vitamins, essential oils, antitoxins, iris diagnosis, ear acupuncture and reflexology.
Alongside her career as a nurse, Anni’s continued interest in health and wellbeing led to her qualification as a nutritional advisor and the launch of a private clinic. In her limited spare time she familiarised herself with therapies such as visualisation, esoteric psychology, iridology and more.
In 1990, Anni relocated to Spain where she juggled working in a travel bureau, running her first health food shop called the ‘Centre for Health and Culture’ and sharing her enthusiasm for complementary medicine in lectures and workshops.
