Simone Wan, mother, wife, licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, has been sharing Traditional Chinese Medicine theories since 2001 after she suffered second- and third-degree burns from a terrible explosion in her NYC apartment. After using plant-based remedies that she had researched while studying to be an acupuncturist/herbalist, she was able to stop using conventional medicine to treat her pain and anxiety. She has been practicing for over a decade and currently works at St. Vincent’s Cancer Center in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and has a private practice in Fairfield, Connecticut. She also enjoys writing for her blog. She has her B.S. from New York University and her MSTOM from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
