Being the Transformer and Transporter your Spleen keeps everything going along under the surface.
That’s rather like a swan’s legs, paddling vigorously – out of sight – as it glides by.
Some of Spleen points clear Damp and Phlegm, others strengthen Blood and steady the Shen, your spirit.
It starts on the medial side of your big toe and ends at a point on the side of your chest inferior to your axilla. In between it connects with many important points on other channels.
Some acupuncture points on meridians between knee and toe-tips are particularly important. Since antiquity, acupuncturists have respected them for the special actions they perform. These actions are not just local to the points themselves but affect the metabolism of the body.
These special points are the Five Transport or Shu points.
In another context they become the Five Element points. Read our page on 5 Element theory to understand more about this.
But Spleen points can be important for everyone.
