Clinically, I have seen acupuncture work effectively when it comes to treating GERD. It usually takes 4-6 treatments as well as other diet and lifestyle changes before lasting results are seen. One of my favourite acupuncture points for reflux is PC6 and some patients even experience temporary relief simply by pressing on that point when they are experiencing reflux symptoms.

Acupuncture can "effectively inhibit the intraesophageal acid and bile reflux" of patients with GERD, so it may be an effective treatment.

Researchers have found that acupuncture is effective for alleviating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Patients unresponsive to drug therapy saw significant improvements after receiving acupuncture care. High resolution measurements of the esophagus confirm that acupuncture improves the activity of the valve whose proper functioning prevents acid reflux.
