The Spleen Meridian

The Spleen Meridian

In Chinese medicine the Spleen Meridian has many vital functions. This energy pathway of the body plays a key role in our digestive process and the health of our immune system. On both sides of the body this meridian begins at the outside of the big toe, up the leg and body to the arm crease and down to the 9th rib.
