McQuinn then studied women's health, craniosacral therapy, IV therapy, and physical medicine while in Bastyr University's naturopathic doctorate program. Now, this member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians works to prevent ailments before they start and cope with them effectively when they arise. She uses a variety of methods to keep patients at their optimum health, including pharmaceutical and herbal prescriptions, regular checkups, nutritional therapy, and massages.
