Sp-9 – “Damp,” blood sugar, infections, edema

The Spleen* likes to be warm and dry. With our wet weather here, lots of Portland people have Damp issues. ¬†Sp-9 ¬†(Yin Ling Quan) will drain damp, usually through urination. It can be used to treat bladder & urinary tract infections, chronic yeast infections, hepatitis, jaundice, and leg edema. It’s also a good long term treatment point for diabetes.

Sp-9Sp-9 lies in the depression posterior and inferior to the medial condyle of the tibia. The easiest way to find it is to run your thumb up the edge of the bone on the inside of your lower leg until it falls into a hole. It will drain damp, usually through urination. It can be used to treat bladder & urinary tract infections, chronic yeast infections, hepatitis, jaundice, and leg edema. If this Sp-9 is active (meaning, it needs some attention!), it’ll be quite sore.

Press gently for 10-20 seconds, with healing intention.

* Remember that in Chinese medicine, the Spleen is an energetic concept and should not be confused with your anatomical organ, the spleen.
