By combining these two points, it is believed that the stagnant Blood in the Liver can be moved and the overall circulation of Qi and Blood can be improved.

Spleen 6 (Sanyinjiao) is a point on the Spleen meridian that tonifies the Spleen and promotes the circulation of blood. The combination of these two points helps to treat the failure of nourishment and circulation of blood, which can lead to symptoms such as insomnia, low energy, and Shen disturbances.

Liver 2 helps to clear Liver Fire and relieve symptoms such as migraines and red eyes, while Spleen 2 helps to tonify the Spleen and resolve Dampness.

• B.

Spleen 9 - Kidney 3

• C.

Kidney 6 - Spleen 6

B. Spleen 9 - Kidney 3
Explanation

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dampness refers to an excess of fluid in the body that can cause symptoms such as heaviness, swelling, and a feeling of dampness. Kidney Yang Deficiency is a condition where the energy of the Kidney organ is weak, leading to symptoms such as coldness, fatigue, and weakness. Spleen 9 is a point that helps to strengthen the Spleen organ, which is responsible for transforming and transporting fluids in the body. Kidney 3 is a point that tonifies the Kidney organ and helps to warm the body. Therefore, the combination of Spleen 9 and Kidney 3 can help to treat Dampness in the body due to Kidney Yang Deficiency.
