I've used acupuncture for my joint pain. It took several sessions but it worked well to keep the pain under control. I never really had much luck with acupuncture for my CD, but my acupuncturist has treated colds and headaches for me all with good results.
CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!
