Bone Marrow Nei Kung helps to remove fat from the bone marrow and create space for the marrow to grow, thereby increasing one’s ability to produce blood cells. It can relieve tension in the muscles, permitting Chi and blood to circulate freely.
The technique of Bone Breathing draws Chi in through the fingertips, the toes, and all of the protruding bones, spreading it throughout the skeletal structure. This energy is then compressed into the bones through muscular contractions, forcing Chi into the cavities of the body. Bone Compression thus completes the Bone Breathing process by retaining the accumulated energy.
Bones are extremely porous, and they are always “breathing.” The pores allow the passage of oxygen, blood, and nutrition through the bones in the same way a sponge absorbs and releases water. Bone Breathing draws external Chi in through the skin, muscles, and tendons to be combined with sexual energy and compressed into the marrow of the bones through the Bone Compression practice. This process uses the combined energies to create the heat necessary to burn the fat out of the marrow.
