Acupuncture Point Spleen 9 for Edema, Urination, Digestion, and More!

Spleen 9 is all about water regulation.

Its most common uses are urinary incontinence and painful urination, and abdominal distention and pain. It’s also used for edema, which is when excess water collects in the body tissues, commonly in the legs and feet. Diarrhea and seminal emission are other common reasons acupuncturists reach for this point.
