Alicia Masiulis is an experienced and accomplished clinician with almost 20 years of experience as a health professional. She practices functional medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutritional therapy based on lab results and clinical presentations. Her current areas of focus include male and female fertility, recurrent miscarriage, pregnancy and obstetrics, cancer support, and pain/ sports injury treatment. She enjoys problem-solving and is passionate about using research-based methods in her field.
Alicia had her children at ages 38 and 40 and understands the need to help otherwise healthy people to address any subclinical health factors that could keep them from getting pregnant and achieving a peaceful and healthy pregnancy. She uses lab testing, nutritional supplements based on current research, nutrition, herbal medicine, and acupuncture as treatment methods for fertility and pregnancy.
Alicia also loves to spend time in nature and exercise. She is happy to help others overcome sports injuries, myofascial pain, and postpartum issues that keep them from moving their bodies. She has an advanced certification in orthopedic/ sports acupuncture and uses various needling techniques for myofascial pain including dry needling, trigger point needling, motor point needling, and electrical stimulation (e-stim).
Alicia loves food and likes helping others eat in a way that is healthy for their own biology. She is committed to a non-judgmental approach to working with patients to optimize their diet and digestion based on lab results with nutritional therapy.
One of Alicia’s passions is also helping patients who are undergoing treatment for cancer. She was impressed at the way that acupuncture and herbal medicine can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy as well as augment treatment efficacy. To further refine her skills, she completed advanced training in Oncology with Dr. Tai Lahans, OMD, an expert clinician and author of the most extensive textbook on Integrative Oncology and Chinese Medicine.
She is board certified in fertility with the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) and nationally certified in acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She graduated from Bastyr University in Washington State in 2003 with B.S. in Natural Health Sciences and an M.S. in Acupuncture.
