Has anyone seen the film yet? Would love to hear your feelings.
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.
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.
