Tan Tien Chi Kung has a particularly close connection with the three basic Iron Shirt Practices which focus on the strengthening of the internal organs and firm rooting, the change and strengthening of the tendons and the cleansing and renewal of the bone marrow. As to the Iron Shirt practices, compression as mentioned above, creates space for new Chi in the muscles, tendons and the bones, as the fat which has been accumulated there is expelled. With the process of aging, fat tends to accumulate, and as a result the bones lose their regenerative function, as fat takes the place of blood cells.
Through bone breathing, the regenerative capacity of the bone marrow is restored, as new red and white blood cells start to re-grow after the fat has been expelled.
