In 2015, the Minneapolis VA published a major study on the effectiveness of mindfulness for the treatment of PTSD in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Since then, there has been an increasing demand for non-traditional health care approaches. These include Yoga, Tai chi, mindfulness, acupuncture and the use of essential oils. In December, 2017, the Minneapolis VA Medical Center (VAMC) celebrated the opening of its new Integrative Center for Health & Healing, which offers non-traditional therapies.
