Anisa practices pediatric and family acupuncture at Sunflower Family Wellness.

I am often asked why I chose the name “Sunflower”. First off, anyone that knows me, knows that all my life, I have loved sunflowers. They make me happy. They are simple, bright, and radiant. They put a smile on my face.

When I thought about a name for my practice that represented children (and families), I was reminded of a Sunflower. A Sunflower starts off like a little seed, much like our children. Depending on how much we water them, nourish them with love, food, and care, they will grow up to be strong, beautiful and bring others and joy. A child is just this. We are given the task as parents to help nurture our child and make the best possible choices for our child given the enormous amount of health information that is being sent our way. The best thing we can do is to be educated on what we can do and then make the best choice. “
