Pericardium Meridian

Known as the ‘King’s Bodyguard’ (in this case… the ‘king’ is the heart), the pericardium meridian is the heart’s protector. It is regarded as a Fire-energy organ.

The pericardium provides the heart with physical protection, its energy also protects the heart from damage and disruption by excessive emotional energies generated by the other organs, such as anger from the liver, fear from the kidneys, and grief from the lungs.
