Dr. Stephanie Preston
Dr. Stephanie Preston began working at the Center for Natural Medicine in July of 2017. In addition to colon hydrotherapy, she is accepting new patients for Naturopathic care, physical medicine, and acupuncture. Dr. Preston earned her B.S. in Biology at the University of Bridgeport, where she also was involved in toxicological research. She and her team presented their research at The Society of Toxicology Symposium in Washington D.C. and the New England Science Symposium at Harvard both in 2011. In 2011 she also started volunteering with the CCADV as a certified domestic violence counselor where she became interested in healthcare for women and children.
She continued her education at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine and graduated in May 2018. While in school, she specialized in women’s health and pediatrics going on to write her thesis on prenatal massage and its benefits to both mother and child. Her research further emphasized how important it is at any age or stage of life to receive well-rounded care to optimize health.
Due to her experience in counseling with the CCADV, during school, she continued her counseling training with Mind-Body techniques to help in dealing with emotional and physical stress. She combines breathing techniques, visualization, guided meditation as well as muscle tension release techniques to help bring the mind and body back in to alignment. She finds the mind to be a crucial factor and one of the major pillars of health to address in comprehensive care.
In her efforts to continue to further her education and offer multiple comprehensive modalities of
support, she enrolled in the University of Bridgeport Acupuncture Institute where she is currently
finishing up a dual masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology.
