I go to acupuncture regularly. I love it. I don't notice a HUGE change in the UC from it, however, it helps IMMENSELY with my stress level, which is a big ole trigger for me with the UC. My acupuncturist has a daughter with UC and she is very sensitive to the issues of the disease.
I actually haven't been in a couple of weeks, and now I am noticing that my stress is skyrocketing, and I am having a lot more bloating and discomfort. I am also having a lot more joint pain again. I will be going to see her this week for sure.
It is not a cure all, but can definitely be a valuable tool, and it certainly can't hurt to try!!!
