The energy of the moon can be absorbed through a point along the lower lumber called the “Door of Life.” This is a point between the kidneys that can be stimulated through massage or meditation.
Because the kidneys regulate the water element and sexual energy in the body, the Door of Life is a natural point to draw in the energy of the moon.
The kidneys can be related to the batteries of the body. When they feel charged up, they can perform their many functions, including the growth of bone marrow.

Introductory chi kung exercises are simple and foundational, but they are still very profound and their effects can be enough to stave off chronic disease, when combined with proper diet. One can revive an inner awareness that provides guidance in making choices resulting in happiness. At the least these practices can guide one in the direction of contentment.
