It’s been said that you can learn a lot about a woman by the contents of her purse—it’s like opening a door into our personality and lifestyle. So, when we had the opportunity to spill the contents of acupuncturist and herbalist Jin H. Ngan’s leather purse, we just knew we had to share what we found. An effervescent healing spirit, she’s the driving force behind Jin and Tonic Wellness Co. (www.acujin.com), a practice that helps patients navigate issues ranging from pain, fatigue, and forgetfulness to infertility, migraines, and weight gain. As you might imagine, the items she carries with her are just as interesting as she is.
