About Us

IMG_6647 A

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.

Anni’s Vital Shops 

In 1994 Anni joined forces with her son Nils to launch the first ‘Anni’s Vitalshop’ in Los Boliches, Fuengirola and in 1999 a second shop opened in Nerja. Later we opened a shop in Carrefour, Mijas Costa and one in the Finnish Center in Los Boliches.

Today we have two shops; one in Elviria (East Marbella) and one in Los Boliches (Fuengirola) and not to forget our web shop!

As a family business, Nils and Anni employ staff who share their conviction in complementary medicine and that care as much as they do about their customers health. Thereby ensuring that the company will continue to develop and their ability to advise and provide good customer service will continue.

    I met Hannah in Carrefour. She was very pleasant and wanted to help but I was looking for vegan cheese and you do not seem to stock it. Is it something you may stock in the future?


    • Thank you for your message.
      Regarding Vegan Cheese for our shop in Carrefour. Yes, we can stock Vegan Cheese too in our Carrefour shop – we have it actually in our shop in Elviria – so will bring it out there during this week.
      Best Regards
      ANNIs VITAL SHOP, Elviria, Nils Lind
