More than 8 million American adults suffer from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) every year. Fortunately, acupuncture has been proven to help effectively alleviate many PTSD symptoms such as anxiety and depression.

The following statistics are based on the U.S. population:


  • About 7 or 8 out of every 100 people (or 7-8% of the population) will have PTSD at some point in their lives.
