Objective: To observe the clinical effects of Zhu Lian’s type Ⅰ excitation needling technique for postpartum urinary retention. Methods: A total of 60 cases with postpartum urinary retention were recruited and divided randomly into an observation group and a control group, 30 cases in each group. The control group was treated with routine acupuncture, and stimulated with sparse and dense wave of electric acupuncture for 15 min after arrival of needling sensation, and then the needles were taken out. The observation group was treated with Zhu Lian’s type Ⅰ excitation needling technique, by inserting the needles with the quick inserting method, swift and temporary lifting and thrusting technique for shallow insertion for 5 times, by an in-and-out technique, without retaining the needles. Results: The total effective rate was 96.7% in the observation group and 83.3% in the control group. The difference in the total effective rate between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.05). After the treatment, the first urination time was shorter in the observation group than that in the control group, with a statistical significance (P<0.01). After the treatment, the volume of residual urine after the first urination was less in the observation group than that in
