Bone Breathing: According to Taoist masters, Bone Breathing is a powerful technique which helps our breath to reach our bones and cleanse the bone marrow.
Most of us think that following a regular physical exercise schedule will help us stay healthy and feel younger. However, regardless of how physically fit we may be on the outside, the aging process primarily depends on the health of our internal organs like the bone marrow that rejuvenates and nourishes our body. Now we can choose to cleanse the marrow with the ancient Taoist practice of Bone Breathing which enables our breath to reach our bones.
Bone Breathing is a powerful technique developed by Taoist masters in China to empower us to live up to our highest potential and access higher consciousness. Bone Breathing allows us to absorb energy from our environment and heal ourselves internally.
What is Bone Breathing?
In our daily life, we have become so busy and inattentive that we fail to realize we need to breathe consciously and feel it to our bones. Bone Breathing is the process when we breathe slowly, deeply and clearly to help it reach our bones and heal various ailments, relieve stress & make us feel relaxed. In fact, a recent study published in the American Journal of Physiology (Cell Physiology) found that the supply of oxygen to our bones greatly affects our bone physiology & bone formation.
“Bone breathing is not only for those repairing bones… the Taoists developed these practices for opening the human potential to its maximum. One powerful effect of bone breathing sessions is the ability to calm the mind and arrest the current of internal talk which goes on constantly. It also brings a profound sense of relaxation and openness that aids in resolving muscular tension and stress.” – Healing Tao
Qi and the bone marrow
Life force or Prana or Qi is a vital energy which keeps our body nourished. By channeling this life force to various internal organs, we can develop good health and reverse the effects of aging. Bones provide the essential structure for the human body, protect crucial organs and nourishes us by creating red & white blood cells. Bone Breathing utilizes breathing techniques and brings this life force to heal the bones.
According to Taoist master and author Mantak Chia, our bones are living organs and always breathe. As the bones are highly absorbent, it ingests oxygen, blood and nutrition. By absorbing energy, the bones ‘regrow’ the marrow, slows down the aging process, reverses bone compression and restores health. This also helps to stimulate hormonal production and prevent osteoporosis.
“Bone Breathing or bone compression is the method of ‘Cleansing the Marrow’, or cleaning out fat in the bone marrow so that you can direct and absorb the creative (sexual) energy into the bone to help regrow the bone marrow.” – Mantak Chia

How bone breathing works
The technique of bone breathing enables us to absorb significant amounts of Prana or Qi to strengthen our mind & body and become healthier. Ancient Taoist masters believed our vital energy diminishes as our body ages. And as a result, our bones become weaker with age.
According to the masters, bone breathing techniques can help us slow down this process and regenerate the loss of bone marrow with regular long-term practice. They also believed that it can rejuvenate our immune system, blood and significantly reduce stress.

We need to realize that the true essence of breathing is in a full and conscious breath. When we are aware of our breath it revitalizes and refreshes our body. Healthy bones are developed from healthy breathing. As the quality of our breath affects our body organs, the bone and the marrow is also healed through our breath. The marrow, stored in the medullary cavity, generates white and red blood cells which are crucial for our life. By breathing fully, the bones take in oxygen and transfer it to the marrow to make cells and cleanse the space inside the bones.
