In brief: Yes

Psoriasis is a serious skin condition with serious medical treatment, but it is quite sensitive to emotional states.
Acupuncture may be quite beneficial, yet it is not a mainstream treatment. It is worth considering.

In brief: Psoriasis

I would not waste your time or money on acupuncture for this skin disorder. We really do not know what causes psoriasis and there are effective treatments for severe disease.
Accupuncture is safe but unlikely to provide any benefit.
