Hi there. I’m Mari Kurko L.Ac, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, licensed acupuncturist and mother.
I began studying maternal health when I experienced postpartum depression after the birth of my son in 2004. I was pursuing a degree in Oriental Medicine at the time and began using Traditional Chinese Medicine, supplements and nutrition to find relief from postpartum depression, anxiety and exhaustion.
I created Mamashine to share what I've learned and help other women heal and recover from postpartum issues. You can find more information about me here.
