Last March we had the ICCM congress here in Israel.
It’s a great event, where we get to meet people from our local community, and also people from the global community of Chinese Medicine.
That is, I think, not just important, but also just lots of fun.
The congress was a 4-day-long party, and we had many interesting events, all about Chinese Medicine.
I had some contributions for the event, one of them was the first screening in Israel of the movie 9,000 Needles.
I”m sure many of you know about the movie by now, and probably watched it. For those who didn’t- the movie tells the personal story of Devin Dearth, a body builder from the US who suffered a massive stroke. Trying to find the best ways to heal himself, he travels to China, for a 6 weeks program of acupuncture, moxa, cupping and physiotherapy sessions- everyday, almost all day long.
The experience is being filmed by his brother, Doug, and the result is this movie.
