8th July 2011




9000 Needles is a documentary about the personal journey of recovery of Devin Dearth, a successful

American businessman who suffers a paralysing stroke. His rehabilitation is hindered by the

limitations of the American health insurance system, so his family raise the money to take him to

Tianjian, China where he embarks on a far from conventional program integrating Western and

Traditional Chinese medicine.



This award winning film is a must for anyone interested in alternative methods of healthcare,

particulary Chinese medicine and Acupuncture. 9000 Needles is both harrowing and moving, reminding

us of the strength and compassion of the human spirit.
