The removal of Binqi is a natural phenomenon. The body has self regulating mechanisms to expel Binqi and makes use of mental force, body movement and breathing. Also the earth force supports this process. Therefore, anyone who is physically and emotionally in good shape will expel Binqi in a natural way.
We can state that Binqi can be removed from the body through the Mai and Jin (these are the energy channels and meridians), the exits of which are located in the hands and feet. These Mai and Jin function as a network to transport the nutritional substances from the blood to the organs and body tissue, while they move waste products from the organs and tissues to the hands and feet.
As body fluids contain energy substances as well as Binqi, we believe that the movement of body fluids and Binqi are connected with each other. If body fluids can move freely to the hands and feet, gas Binqi (wind Binqi, or emotional Binqi) can leave the body through the skin of the hands and feet. The non-gas Binqi (cold Binqi, damp Binqi and fire Binqi) can be absorbed in the blood by the capillary system of the hands and feet after which is it broken down by the liver. The waste products are expelled in the urine. Only if this free flow and exits are blocked, Binqi will accumulate in the body.
By using Taijiwuxigong techniques, body fluids can be moved towards the hands and feet. The Binqi that is present in the body will move together with the body fluids and can leave the body at the hands and feet. Sometimes this Binqi is clearly tangible or even visible. A practitioner can feel how pain or coldness moves to the hands and feet. During or just after the exercises the hands and feet can change colour as a consequence of Binqi. These kinds of phenomena are called Binqi reactions.
Binqi can also be released in the form of emotional reactions. Persons with a lot of emotional stress can start to cry, shout, sigh, burp, yawn, sweat of fart during an exercise. All these reactions are methods to expel Binqi. After such a session, the practitioners feel relieved and free. After some time of practise, the emotional stress is healed and the reactions change to laughing and singing.
As the body is cleaned of Binqi, the Binqi reactions will decrease. When these reactions have vanished completely, the head, neck shoulders and other parts of the body will feel light and warm. A deep sense of happiness emerges, as if one is reconnected to the source of joy.
