Acid Reflux and Acupuncture

Has anyone else tried to improve their GERD/LPR situation with acupuncture? I tried it for 2 sessions 3 years ago, but did not see any improvement.

I'm thinking of giving it another go, going with a better acupuncturist and more sessions to see if it will help.

I ran across this study and it does seem to give some hope.

Re: Acid Reflux and Acupuncture

I tried about 6 acupuncture sessions, and it helped me reduce stress, which helps out physiologically, since we know stress is a killer. However, I was not cured of my reflux disease. Without a doubt it helps, but I'm not sure if it will cure it.
