Acupuncture for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Enough people are turning to Acupuncture that researchers in the United States are starting to conduct studies recording the effectiveness of Acupuncture in helping various conditions.  One such study was on depression, anxiety, and impairment associated with PTSD.  In this particular study, Acupuncture was found to be as effective as cognitive-behavioral therapy in alleviating these conditions, with benefits still holding 3 months after discontinuation of both forms of therapy.
