I have been in practice since 2007 specializing in women's health, fertility, and pregnancy.  I have had the privilege of working with amazing clients and feel honored to have been trusted with their health care. 

From our first meeting with her, we knew we were in good hands—she was very easy to talk to about our fertility challenges, as well as the goals of acupuncture as related to fertility. My wife and I both received acupuncture treatments from Maring (once a week for me, twice a week for my wife), and by September 2012 we were expecting a baby!

Maring Higa (licensed Acupuncturist)


Hi I'm Maring (pronounced Mah-Ring)  I hail from the Pacific Northwest but San Diego has been my home for the last 13 years.  I moved from Colorado to go to acupuncture school at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and got used to the sunshine and beaches and never left.  But I still get a little homesick for trees and the seasons.  I have two children a 6 year old boy, 1 year old girl, 14 year old mutt, and a wonderful husband.  When I'm not in the clinic with patients I like to spend my time practicing brush lettering, interviewing people for my podcast, writing, or doing aerial silks.   

Maring understands deeply the issues surrounding pregnancy, fertility, and postpartum health. She takes the time to listen to your concerns in a caring and non-judgmental way. I was so lucky to have her help through one of the hardest experiences I’ve ever had and am beyond grateful.
