  • Bach Flower Remedies


A word from Ines herself…

My name is Ines, from Germany and I trained in reflexology and chiropody at the school of Thomas Wadler, which alongside medical training specializes in treatments for the feet. I had a wonderful time and was blessed with a very competent and loving teacher.
During the 27 years I have lived in Portugal I have combined bringing up a family with a growing interest in holistic healing and complementary therapies. I’ve always lived in community in the countryside close to nature, and enjoy working in my garden. My special passion was to listen to and study wildlife – absorbing myself in collecting wild herbs and getting a deeper understanding for herbal medicine. I’ve gained experience in a range of healing methods, like Reiki, Meditation, Quantum Energy Flow and especially the Bach Flower remedies which have helped me in difficult times to balance my emotions. I like to be with people and have a strong sense of compassion.
I’ve been practicing for 20 years for an international clientele in the Algarve and my work becomes love in action. I hope to create a healing space for you where you can relax, restore energy and gain from a good feeling by allowing the miraculous human organism to find it’s own path to true health. I like to see the light in everybody.
