Digital presentation - At forty years old, Devin Dearth is a successful businessman, a loving husband, father of three, a devout Christian and champion bodybuilder. He and his family reside in the small community of Central City, Kentucky where they live the ideal American Dream. That is, until Devin suffers a devastating stroke. Caused by a bleed in the brain stem, the stroke leaves him paralyzed on his right side and unable to walk, with difficulty speaking, double vision and inability to care for himself or his family. He has met his ultimate adversary: The limits of his own mortality. We follow Devin on this unconventional journey, during which his courage, faith, patience and desire to overcome are tested on a daily basis. The trials he and his family endure along the way remind us that the human spirit can transcend any boundaries while exploring a universal community of healing and transformation.
The Acupuncture Association of Colorado is excited to be the main sponsor of the documentary 9000 Needles
. We want the public to know that the acupuncture and care that Devin receives in this film are very specific to his condition and not the typical experience. Considering that for many this may be the first contact you have with this ancient healing medicine, know that the AAC wants to answer your questions and will be available for Q&A at the screening. You can also reach us at 303-572-8744. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine has a long history and treats many conditions safely and effectively. An acupuncture needle is nothing to fear!
