Masha has always had a passion towards natural medicine. Originally from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (a post-Soviet Union country in Central Asia) her family used herbs and nutrition throughout their life to stay healthy.
When she was a teenager she became interested in the biology of cancer. While a student at American University in Central Asia in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, she volunteered at the Children’s Cancer Center applying for grants for social and medical support of the Center. Masha also created educational and holiday events for the children and their parents with her fellow students. She assisted doctors with the translation of clinical articles and treatment protocols from English into Russian. Masha says that it was wonderful to help patients and their families with whatever she could to make their stay at the hospital better and a little bit more enjoyable.
Before her naturopathic medical training, Masha had also worked for several major hospitals in Florida – assisting nurses and clinical laboratory staff to care for the patients.
Dr Masha and her husband live in the beautiful Huntington/Long Beach area and she is proud to serve the communities of the Southern California.
At Sacred Roots Holistic Healing Center, Dr Masha offers Healthy Family Saturdays every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. Families are welcome to make an appointment to discuss optimal family diet, pre-conception plan, children’s acute and chronic illnesses, vaccination questions, care provided for a family member or any other concerns that different families may have. Dr Masha welcomes LGBT families in her practice.
Holistic Cancer Care
One of the specialties of Dr Masha is holistic cancer care. She offers visits to cancer patients and their families to support them through their journey of conventional medical treatment with the help of natural medicine such as nutrition, homeopathy, herbs and hydrotherapy. Dr Masha believes that natural medicine plays an important role in cancer healing. Patients can improve their sleep, increase their energy, diminish side effects of chemotherapy/radiation/surgery among some of the benefits.

Women’s and Men’s Health
Naturopathic medicine has a lot to offer to women and men in their care for health. If there are issues with fertility, menopause, hormonal imbalances (including thyroid gland), insomnia, all kind of digestive complains, skin conditions and many other health and wellness related challenges, naturopathic medicine has many non-toxic effective therapies to address those issues. If it is necessary, naturopaths use bio-identical hormones to address hormonal changes, such as menopause.
