Yes acupuncture, herbal medicine and associated techniques can be used to treat any number of psychological conditions including OCD. While there are some acupressure points which are helpful for anxiety generally, the best course of action is to consult directly with a practitioner and follow whatever self-help and dietary recommendations that they make.

If you view our still very much in progress page on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - near the bottom of the page you will see a list of commonly used acupuncture/acupressure points for this condition. Those are what would be helpful in many cases.
