Pierre-Jean Cousin: acupuncture The tall, grey-haired, bespectacled Frenchman has a reassuringly competent manner and a no-nonsense approach to treatment. That's just as well, since clients include some pernickety members of the Royal Family. ''He's rather sardonic and French,'' reports one patient. ''If you say 'Ow' when he sticks in a needle, he shrugs and says, 'But I can feel nothing.'''
