Not sure if I’m confusing myself. Would I reduce or reinforce Sp6, Sp9 & Sp10 for swelling of both hands or legs type of oedema?

Paul you reinforce the spleen Meridian when the kidney and spleen Yang is deficient and therefore you warm up the body to dry off the dampness and you reduce the spleen meridian when there's an overload of dampness retained in the body and you do that to help promote urination and pass the excess dampness.

One thing needs to be considered why is it both hands and both legs swollen  and that could point towards a circulatory problem so so you may need to consider treating the heart and kidney in order to improve and balance circulatory system
