Qualified professional Medical Herbalist with the National Institute of Medical Herbalists since 1995. Before that my academic studies included BSc (Hons) Pharmacology & MSc Plant Chemistry & Pharmacology.

I co-founded the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine in 1992 and was Director of Research until the BSc & MSc courses closed in 2010. My practice is continually evolving and has been informed by the energetic approach to Herbs (Ayurveda & Humoral Medicine); Goethean Science and Medical Astrology. Recently, I joined the Clinical Training team of Heartwood professional herbal training course offering clinical and dispensary hours at the herb farm.


My consultations are more like a individual workshop, taking 3-4 hours including Art therapy, full case history, natal chart interpretation, introducing the patient to living plants in the garden appropriate to them, showing them how to harvest their herbs and be involved in their medicine preparation (eg mixing herb tea and infusing their intention). My clinic is on a rural herb farm with different cultivated areas and areas offering herbs from wild harvesting which help stock my dispensary.


JOSE has been involved in music since his first successful punk rock band as a teenager in Sintra which had a strong following for many years and made a number of recordings. He quickly moved into working with the uplifting, feel-good beat of ambient electronic music which he composed and produced as a professional musician for several record labels and  performed as an internationally acclaimed musical artist DJ for over a decade.
Performing to a live crowd gave him the knowledge of how music influences emotions, the sense of well being and connection to the whole.

His musical expression is continually evolving as he is continuously looking for new ways of communicating through music to now embrace the deep healing resonance phenomena of medicine songs and the healing frequencies of plant spirit vibrational medicine, especially to the essential oils and the aromatic herbs whose high frequency vibration has a commonality to harmonious musical resonance.

His warm, easy going and caring approach allows people working with him to relax into their own healing through close encounters with teacher plants and allies.


I have 17 years of experience in launching and developing Brands and my work required a process of self-knowledge, because only then could I help myself and others. For this, besides initiating myself in an experience of improving Communication,
Training in complementary therapies (Reflexology Podal, Facial, Palmar, Auricular, Sacro Cranial among many others) I am connected to the area of health and natural therapies since 2018.
I have also been trained in the area of Nutrition - Food Profiling -, based on discovering the dietary needs of each person, which will enable them to achieve excellent levels of physical and mental health.
Passionate about the well-being of all levels of health - physical, mental and spiritual - this project aims, through the use of Reflexology, to explore the evolutionary potential of the Human Being to create conditions in our body to regenerate or heal itself more quickly and easily.
Thus, I can present myself as a Multi-Reflexologist, given the various training courses, techniques and protocols in which I specialize.
