2007 study combining craniosacral therapy and acupuncture as adjunct therapies for adult asthma. Study findings suggest: “When treatment was compared with the control group, statistically treatment was significantly better than the control group in improving asthma quality of life, whereas reducing medication use with pulmonary function test results remained the same. However, the combination of acupuncture and craniosacral treatment was not superior to each therapy alone.”
