Chiropractic Shelton CT Natalia B

Acupuncturist

Natalia Bright, L.Ac.

Natalia was born in Ukraine as the third generation heir to a family of wellness providers. Natalia’s grandmother was a natural healer in the local village. Her mother was a family physician.

Natalia spent her childhood summers in her grandmother’s home learning the traditional way of healthy living. She helped her grandmother harvest herbs in nearby fields and learned the healing properties of each. Natalia’s first knowledge of a healthy diet was from her grandmother’s vegetable garden and kitchen. The commercial medicines Natalia’s mother brought home from her clinic for first aid and general illnesses was respectfully put on a shelf by her grandmother. They were never used.

Natalia was inspired very early on to live a life that embraced the secrets and value of natural remedies: herbs, healing foods, compresses, massages and fire cupping.

Going to the bed at sunset and waking up at sunrise was another family lifestyle gift Natalia inherited from her youth and carried into adulthood. Her lifelong habit of early to bed and early to rise energized and empowered Natalia to successfully meet the challenges she faced during twenty seven years of demanding school academics in Russia and in the United States.

Natalia earned her first master’s degree in the performing arts from Gnesin’s Musical Academy in Moscow. Her first career after college was as a singer in a folk music group that performed throughout Russia and Europe.

After her family moved to the U.S., Natalia returned to academia at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut where she earned her second master’s degree in acupuncture and a doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine.

Natalia’s passion to live her life with natural medicines and a healthy lifestyle became her professional calling.

She honed her acupuncture and wellness skills in New York City treating a very diverse array of patients for ten years. She has become expert in analyzing her patients’ health and trigger their bodies to self heal and restore themselves with her recommended course of care.

In addition to acupuncture, Natalia works with heat, electric current, deep tissue massage and breathing techniques to help resolve issues with asthma, digestive problems, fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches, immune support, insomnia, menstrual and musculoskeletal disorders, migraines, natural hormone release, pain, sports and accident injuries, stress and weight loss.

She has given numerous presentations in public venues to audiences of all ages on healthy eating, weight management, stress reduction and acne treatment.

Natalia brings her passion - and the privilege - to help her patients at Advanced Chiropractic & Rehab live the best lives they can.
