The Bladder Meridian

Guardian of Peace

Bladder Meridian - Flow - bladder meridian

The Bladder Meridian is a Yang Meridian and is paired with the Yin Kidney Meridian.

This meridian is the longest and most complex meridian.

It starts at the inner portion of the eyelid and travels across the front of the head to the back of the head.

It then forms two branches that travel down the back to the sacrum along the spine. It then goes along the middle of the butt, and then to the back of the thigh.

The two branches then meet behind the knee and travel between the calf along the Achilles tendon to the outside of the foot.

The Bladder Meridian ends at the outside of the baby toe.
