When I started practising as a Bio-Energy Therapist, I was surprised to discover how many of the physical symptoms were related with some energetic disturbance of the heart.
Usually, the disturbance shows as blockage, constriction or pain, but it can also appear as arrhythmia, skipped beats etc.
The symptoms related to impaired heart energy field can be recurrent back pain (lower and upper are as common as middle back as sometimes the body compensates with strain and pain above or below the heart), digestive issues, depression and anxiety or feeling of tightness in the chest.
Bioenergy Healing on its own can help quite a lot here but I have noticed that the best therapeutic strategy is to combine bioenergy with emotional work.
Bioenergy makes the body feel relaxed, comfortable, more energised and stronger. Funnily enough, when the system feels good and strong, it becomes quite eager to deal with deeper repressed issues of emotional nature.
Repressed emotions wreak havoc in the physical body (read about the link between physical body and emotions here). Emotional work (I use Sedona Method and Theta Healing mainly as well as Pleasure Practice) helps detect and heal trauma and related negative emotions which equals healing the heart. You are left with positive learnings and memories but the negative emotions are gone both from your body and mind.
In my understanding, this kind of combination strategy heals the newly discovered Gratitude and Generosity Meridians which govern the functioning of pericardium.
Here is a little more about these two pericardium meridians:
Gratitude Meridian: is your LEFT Pericardium Meridian. When energy is flowing down from head to hand, it’s easy to perceive, receive and reach out to get our own needs met. Feeling deprived, feeling un-met needs, causes the left Gratitude Meridian to flow backwards, “uphill,” from hand to head, giving us an “uptight feeling.”
Generosity Meridian: is your RIGHT Pericardium Meridian. When energy is flowing down from head towards hand, it’s easy to share our heart feelings and give from our overflow. Giving from obligation is not this, neither is over-giving from a sense of obligation or giving as investment with the purpose to obligate the receiver to give back to you.
When your heart is healthy, positive and balanced you stay aware in the present, are enthusiastic, have healthy impulse control, appropriate dependency and healthy interest in the outer world. You feel satiated and tranquil. You are prone to healthy playful risk taking and appreciate the rejuvenating power of play. Healthy play derives some of its pleasure from taking and succeeding at small risks.
If you are not so healthy and balanced, signs of imbalance and impaired emotional control will appear.
If your pericardium meridians are underactive you might be prone to numbing out on gloomy passive addictions (like watching tv) to get away from the anxiety of a crisis of identity.
If, on the other hand, your pericardium meridians are overactive, you might be given to flying off the handle in reckless over-activity. You might also be prone to active, harsh, reckless sensationalism (hysteria is the old term) to get away from the anxiety of a crisis of identity.

It’s fascinating, isn’t it?
I find it really fascinating that so much change and healing can be offered to the body-mind without any chemical substance whatsoever! Not only this, the work on emotions addresses the root causes of physical ailments rather than just control the symptoms. This means that therapy well done will heal you for good.
