Haven't seen it, and haven't heard about it yet in the acupuncture program either. Will keep an eye on it though.... sounds something I might want to have running on a loop in my waiting room. We need people to understand the many ways this medicine can help them heal and keep them healthy! Education is the key to this shift in thinking and this looks like it could be a great tool.

Thanks, Mike!

Looks Interesting. Does anyone know when it will air or if it has already?
The film is perfect for exactly the use proposed --- to educate patients on how Chinese Medicine and western medicine can really complement one another. It also speaks more holistically about Chinese medicine - Qi Gong, herbology, as well as acupuncture. Many people don't realize there is more to CM than needles! I've seen it and I would definitely recommend it.
You are so right. There needs to be much more education. I think that is what the West fears. They should compliment each other. I have also had Acupuncture and recommend it.

On a separate, but related note, has anyone seen the film 9,000 Needles? Story of a body builder who had a stroke and when his health benefits and results with traditional care maxed out in the US, he went to China for treatment. I just missed a showing of the film in my town that I didn't find out about till it was over. Hearing great things. Have only seen clips of it on line.
Only clips of it for me also. Would love to see it!
