The Pericardium Meridian starts from the chest, leaves the pericardium (the lining surrounding the heart) and runs downwards through the diaphragm to connect with the triple warmer (upper, middle and lower warmer). A branch rising from the chest emerges from the lower chest region and travels upwards to the armpit. From the center medial aspect of the upper arm, it makes its way down between the lung and heart channels, until it reaches the elbow crease. It then runs down the forearm and enters the palm ending at the tip of the middle finger. Another short branch splits off from the palm to connect with the Triple Warmer Meridian at the end of the ring finger.
