My name is Stephanie Mauri, I am a state licensed, nationally board-certified acupuncturist (L.Ac., M.S., Dipl. NCCAOM). I graduated from the University of Bridgeport Acupuncture Institute in December 2014. My student clinical internships were at The UB Acupuncture Clinic, Montefiore Hospital in New Rochelle, and School Sisters of Notredame in Wilton, CT. I treated a diversity of patients in each clinical setting. I also served multiple communities as a licensed and registered dental hygienist (1998-2016).
I understand how preventive medicine and lifestyle play a key role in our quality of life. The body functions as a unified, intelligent organism. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers an incredibly personalized approach to understanding, diagnosing and treating the body.
I respect the natural dignity and complexity of every human being. I am honored to participate in the wondrous processes of health. I love massage, but I am not a massage therapist, and do not offer massage only. I believe in integrative medicine. Acupuncture offers deep healing, and integrative bodywork definitely enhances results.
On a personal note: The photo above of me was taken by my daughter, as we enjoyed a lovely day along the Housatonic River. Our family lives on a busy farm.
The photo at left is of my beautiful mother, who was born in Hong Kong.
I give special thanks to my wonderful parents. Their constant love and guidance fostered in me a love for education and the world. My parents flew for TWA. Their mutual admiration for history and culture brought them together. My father was an exceptional pilot, and his zest for life and heart of gold will always be remembered. Daniel B. Southard Jr. (1942-2017)
