David Simpson began his first private practice in New York City in 2010 specializing in trauma, Chinese sports medicine, and orthopedic conditions. David also worked at New York University's renowned Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine in the grant-funded Integrative Musculoskeletal Institute.
While studying and doing research on atomic bomb victim literature in Japan, David was introduced to acupuncture and herbal medicine. It was this introduction that led to his return to the US to obtain his Master of Science Degree in Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine at the prestigious Tri-State College of Acupuncture in Manhattan.
David's primary interest is in treating pain, integrating classical and modern acupuncture styles often with multiple modalities. Treatments can significantly reduce or eliminate pain caused by stress, sports injury, or any of life's "learning experiences." He augments his acupuncture practice through continued study and utilization of Chinese Internal Martial Arts through New York Internal Arts under Tom Bisio.
