    “Anisa is incredible! After a few times of going to her I feel as if she understood me, and customizes her treatments accordingly. It is powerful. I have also had some very complicated hormonal issues for years and tried many different methods of decreasing the complexities- with no success. Once Anisa prescribed me some herbs - my symptoms and complexities decreased and now I feel balanced and healthy - for the first time in a long time! As I continue to work with Anisa I am constantly learning new things about my body and how to help myself with natural remedies. I recommend her 120%!”

    “I came to Dharma Health Institute as a recommendation from my friend and am so glad I did. I saw Anisa for acupuncture as I was having some knee and lower back pain. I also have been very stressed. She gave me a sequence of treatments that helped alleviate the pain and helped me feel a lot better. Her herbal remedies are excellent. I go to see her at least every two weeks, always go to her community ear clinics and utilize some of the other services the Institute has to offer. The EECP machine has been very helpful for stress management and the infrared sauna is something I have used to help with detoxification while I am cleansing. I highly recommend coming here if you need a little pick me up. Its a one stop shop because they even have classes. I tried the yoga therapy classes with Master Zi and this along with the acupuncture has helped me manage my pain greatly. Master Zi and Anisa are both wonderful to work with.”

    “My family and I see Anisa for our health care. It is wonderful because if my son has a cold or tummy ache, I now feel like I can do something to help him without having to worry that they are in pain. In addition, while she is treating my son, I can also get an ear acupuncture treatment so I feel better too. I highly recommend her. ”
