The coupled heart meridian and organ is known in Chinese medicine as the Emperor of Sovereign Fire. This designation is well deserved as the heart houses the Mind and Soul of each individual. The Qi of this meridian has sovereign governing influence over the blood, as well as controlling opening of the blood vessels.

Sweating is controlled by the heart meridian as sweat is considered in Chinese medicine as part of the blood. Vitality of the heart meridian is noted in the complexion of the skin and color, in good memory, in a state within which you are happy to be yourself, in distinct speech, and in normal tissue color and texture of the tip of the tongue.
