Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Herbs, Yoga, and Women's circles by Masha Schmidt, L.Ac


Masha Schmidt, L.Ac.

Baby Masha and her family immigrated to the US from Odessa on October 27th, 1978. She grew up in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn - with an appreciation for Coney Island, pickled food, and folk medicine!

A NYS-licensed acupuncturist, Masha has also trained as a yoga instructor, herbalist, and aromatherapist. For techniques such as Chakra balancing and facial rejuvenation, she loves to create custom aromatherapy blends, and other fine smelling potions. A lover of shiny things, expect your session to include gemstones and tuning forks.

In cycle with the Wheel of the Year, Masha facilitates Ascend’s seasonal Sister Circle and Open Circle for families. She also co-teaches the yoga program for teen girls.

She holds a BA in psychology from Barnard College, and an M.S.Ac from Tri-State College of Acupuncture. Her diverse training spans from kids yoga to advanced Esoteric Acupuncture.

Masha lives in Cold Spring with her family, which includes two very affectionate dogs and a cat with an unpronounceable Russian name.
