Acupuncture, and some talk therapy, are good treatment options for depression.

A new study out of the University of York finds people who had twelve weekly sessions of acupuncture or couseling, in addition to the standard of care, were significantly less depressed -- compared to people who only got usual care.

More than six hundred patients received the two types of treatments -- and the all saw the same level of improvement.

Researchers say these treatments seem to help, at least in the short term, and were not linked to side effects.
