According to this study:

• Electroacupuncture reduces urine leakage in women with stress urinary incontinence compared with sham electroacupuncture.

• A greater proportion of women in the electroacupuncture group had a reduction of at least 50% in the amount of urine leakage at week 6, which was considered a clinical improvement.
