About Maring Higa:

Natural medicine has always been an integral part of Maring’s personal journey. She has studied extensively in the area of infertility, pregnancy and post-partum recovery. In 2005, Maring traveled to Cheng Du, China to intern with some of the best gynecological doctors in the world.

Maring has specialized in treating male infertility, female infertility and pregnancy support for the past 6 years, and continues to study the most up to date information in this field.

Maring’s personal experience of having a difficult pregnancy and then suffering with post-partum depression has made it natural for her to empathize with women going through these very difficult times.

Combined with a Master of Science from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and a psychology degree from Naropa University, Maring has created a truly integrative, compassionate, and heart-centered approach.

When Maring is not in the clinic she spends her time playing with her son and her daughter, teaching and performing aerial skills, playing music, enjoying the outdoors, and writing.
