Macushla has been practicing in the healthcare field since 2003. After she graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (2008) in San Diego, she spent time doing post-graduate work in Beijing, studying at the hospitals and at their TCM University. She started her focus on pregnancy during her masters program when she wrote her senior thesis on Acupuncture in Labor and Delivery, a 50-page clinical trial. She continues to expand and refine her knowledge by doing continuing education studies with the leaders in the field of pregnancy and pelvic floor focused acupuncture, like Debra Betts and Dr. Jamie Hampton. She grew up the oldest of 5 children in a family that practiced natural healthcare. The first home birth she attended was her brother’s, she was 7. She is a compassionate, results-based, and patient-focused practitioner, who works with great care and integrity meeting her patients where they are at. She works diligently with each patient to optimize their health and believes traditional chinese medicine is an invaluable tool on the path towards true health and vitality. By integrating eastern medicine with modern research and western healthcare, the results are profound.
