The filmmaker’s story: Director-Producer-Editor Lisa Orlando was working at CBS NEWS/60 Minutes when she was diagnosed with Stage IV Lymphoma. She attributes her survival and remission to the acupuncture and Chinese Medicine she received during conventional cancer treatments. That experience informed her decision to become a licensed acupuncturist. She now treats patients for cancer support and other many other conditions and illnesses. Her media company Yin Yang Healing Channel focuses on educating the public about holistic medicine.

The film: This 12-minute segment documents the miracles acupuncture provides in the life of one patient and takes the viewer into the treatment room to witness a session from intake to end. Visual Artist Heather Hart was already won over by the power of acupuncture to treat debilitating menstrual cramps, but when she receives an unexpected cancer diagnosis, she must put the ancient medicine to the test to treat modern day side-effects of cancer treatment. Acupuncturist and cancer survivor Ralph Roberts, L. Ac. gives strong testimony as to its effectiveness and Jeffrey C. Yuen, Dean of the Acupuncture Program at the Swedish Institute, assures us that acupuncture isn’t painful. He sheds light on how Chinese Medicine works and speaks about the many factors at play in any illness.
