Universal Healing Tao offers instruction far more in depth than these pages offer.  We highly recommend going to www.universal-tao.com and looking for a Certified Instructor to help you and support you through this process.  When you are ready, you may also come to Tao Garden and take the Basic Retreat and Female Retreat to learn and study the Jade Egg Practice.  Be sure to read the book Healing Love Through the Tao – Cultivating Female Sexual Energy by Mantak Chia for more detailed information.

            The use of a stone or Jade Egg to strengthen the vagina is a practice that evolved in ancient China. As time went on, the secret of this practice remained in the Royal Palace and was taught only to the queen and concubines. Many who mastered the technique experienced very good health, remaining young and bountiful, with sexual organs in old age as tight and resilient as those of a young, unmarried lady. Some believe that the queen and concubines practiced the technique in order to please the king while making love. Originally, however the Egg Exercise and Vaginal Weight Lifting were implemented for improving health, both physically and spiritually, since these exercises provide more power to the Chi (Pubo-coccygeus or PC muscle) Muscle to lift the sexual energy inward and upward where it will be transformed into higher spiritual energy.
            The egg is a marvelous way to strengthen and control the Chi Muscle. It is easier to practice control of this muscle with an egg in the vagina since, as the egg moves, you can feel the direction in which the Chi Muscle moves more distinctly. Controlling this voluntary muscle means control of the many involuntary muscles in this area as well. Also, as you master the use of this muscle of the vagina and perineum, you simultaneously tone up the lower abdomen. Thus, your performance sexual performance greatly improves, and the flow of sexual hormones increases.
            Vaginal Weight Lifting is a very powerful practice to strengthen, in addition to the Chi Muscle, the urogenital and pelvic diaphragms. The strength of these two diaphragms is very important since these diaphragms serve as floors to the sexual organs and all vital organs.
When the Chi Muscle and diaphragms are loose, Chi pressure will leak out from the organs as they stack upon each other, dropping all their weight to rest upon the perineum. When strong, the muscle and the diaphragm function as seals, preventing leakage of life-force and sexual energies.

1. Selection of your Egg
            Gem and mineral shops generally have a large selection of sizes and materials as well as prices. We researched and tested several different materials and found a volcanic rock called obsidian carved into egg shapes which contained the properties that we are looking for: embracing the Yang power of the volcano, but originating from the Yin power of the center of the Earth. We also follow the tradition of jade, and offer this to you.  The characteristics of these stones attract and concentrate the Yin essence of a woman. Further details, as well as the eggs themselves, can be obtained from the Universal Healing Tao System.
            When you look at the eggs you will have to decide what size looks like it might feel comfortable in your vagina. The eggs range in size from that of a quail egg to jumbo supermarket eggs. Most women choose a medium-sized one, that is, an egg approximately one inch in diameter made of either stone. Stone eggs can be easily drilled for the attachment of weights, and are therefore suited for the Vaginal Weight Lifting practice. We prefer to use stone eggs, such as obsidian or jade, for the internal sucking exercise because of their smooth, non-porous nature. The smaller the egg, the more work your muscles will have to do because they will have to contract more strongly to cause any movement of the egg. Select an egg with a smooth surface.

2. Care for the Egg
            Proper attention and care to one’s feminine hygiene is an absolute necessity prior to beginning this practice. Cleanliness of the vaginal canal and the eggs are equally important. Stone eggs should be boiled or cleaned every one to two weeks with a diluted vinegar solution (one tablespoon per quart of water) and allowed to dry for at least one hour; since the stone egg easily absorbs vaginal fluid and can be a culture for germs if permitted to remain wet. A stone egg should be boiled by bringing it to the boiling point, and then allowing it to cool down. Boiling the stone egg is necessary prior to its first use. After that, simply wash it with water after each time you use it.
            A word of caution about using soap or detergent: some people are allergic to certain chemicals that are found in soap and detergent, especially when inserted into the channel where the membranes are very sensitive. Also, many women are unknowingly allergic to alcohol (isopropyl or rubbing type), therefore its use should be avoided for cleansing purposes.

3. Caution in Practicing the Egg Exercises

a. Do not use the egg if you have a sexually transmitted disease or infection.
b. You must be fully aroused before inserting the egg. If you produce very little fluid naturally,
    use a lubricant.
c. Married women should use a smaller egg.
d. Do not practice lying down.
e. If a problem arises and the egg becomes stuck, do not panic. Lie down and relax and laugh. 
    The egg will come out.
f. Do not use the egg during menstruation.
g. Do not use the egg when pregnant.

4. Using the Egg
            First, be sure to use a natural dental floss or other thin but strong thread to inset through the holes of your egg and create a firm string which hangs down at least 12 inches.  This string will be used to remove the egg if it goes very high in the vaginal canal and you do not have the strength to push it out.  If you thread the two ends in to one hole, you may pull the ends through the loop and avoid tying a knot.

A. Beginning the Exercise
            The first time you use the egg, you will probably want to, and should, exercise all precaution until you become accustomed to it. Each time before practicing the egg exercise, you must warm yourself by massaging the breasts, making sure the vagina is expanded and some lubricating fluid is being emitted.  This is very important and is taught in the Breast Massage area of this website.
Breast massage will help bring gentle arousal energy and thus produce vaginal lubricant so the egg may easily slip inside the vagina.  If you do not produce lubricant, you may use a lubricating jelly: any jelly or cream that is not petroleum based, any natural lubricating oil, such as a raw cooking oil, that you know is safe, or any lubricant that you have used that you do not have a chemical reaction to.
Always insert the wider end of the egg first. Once inserted, assume the standard Horse Stance posture (feet shoulders’ width apart and firmly grounded: ankles and knees bent: groin folded: spine and neck in alignment). Elevate your arms in front of you to a 45-degree angle with your palms facing upward. Assume a clenched fist position. It is from this basic rooting stance that each of the Egg Exercises is performed.

The cervix represents the back limit of the vagina. Squeezing the muscles the way you would to have a bowel movement will expel the egg. In the beginning make sure not to practice on a cement floor so that if the egg drops out, it will not break. You can also place a towel under your feet.

B. Three Sections of the Vaginal Canal
To gain further control through the Egg Exercise, we divide the vaginal canal into three sections.

(1) The external vaginal orifice and front of the vaginal canal
The first section includes the muscles of the external vaginal orifice and the front part of the vaginal canal. When the egg is inserted, you will contract the uterus, closing the orifice tightly so that the egg cannot drop out.

(2) The anterior of the cervix
The second section to be contracted consists of the muscles of the vaginal canal immediately in front of the cervix.

(3) The middle of the vaginal canal.
The third section encompasses the muscles of the middle of the vaginal canal. These are the muscles that will move the egg up and down, left and right, and tilt it in different directions. (Fig. 7.3) You will practice moving and using these muscles until you master their movement as easily as using your hand. As you play with the direction you will learn to differentiate each movement of these muscles. If you have a male partner he will soon notice the results of this practice. Practice for a few minutes at a time, as often as you like. Insert the egg before practicing Tai Chi, Iron Shirt, or any of the other physical practices. Gradually increase the length of time you retain it. Just remember that it is there, since laughing, sneezing, or coughing can sometimes cause the egg to blast out of the vagina quite unexpectedly.

C. Summary of Egg Exercises Step-By-Step

1.  Breast massage
     Massage your breasts until you feel gentle arousal energy and lubrication in the vagina.  Relax and feel the connection between the breasts and the uterus.

2. Insert the Egg
     When you feel you are ready, insert the egg into the vagina, large end first.

2. Horse Stance Alignment
     Align your body in the basic Horse Stance described earlier.

3. Contract the First Section
     Isolate and contract the muscle groups responsible for closing the external vaginal orifice tightly. This will help to keep the egg in the vaginal canal.

4. Contract the Second Section
     Inhale and contract the vaginal canal muscles immediately in front of the cervix so that you are now contracting two sections at the same time. Keep both points closed. There is no need to use hard muscle contractions.

5. Squeeze the Third Section
     Slightly squeeze the egg from the middle of the vaginal canal until you feel that you have a good grip on it. Inhale and squeeze again, gradually increasing the squeeze, and then inhale more and squeeze harder (Fig. 7.5) Once you feel you have a good grip on the egg, slowly move it up and down. Start with a slow motion, gradually increasing to a fast motion. When you are out of breath, exhale and rest. The resting period is very important. It is at this time that you will feel Chi build up in this area. Try to master each movement before continuing to the next step.

6.  Collect the sexual energy, spiral, and smile
When you finish, stand for a moment and feel the energy in ovaries and uterus.  Use your mind to spiral the energy in these places.  Smile.

7.  Image the beautiful sexual energy moving in the MicroCosmic Orbit
       See the Chi in ovaries and uterus like clean sparkling glitter.  Use your mind to gently move this Chi from the organs to the perineum.  Slightly squeeze anus perineum, and sexual organs so this wonderful Chi does not escape. 
Next, move the Chi into the MicroCosmic Orbit and circulate at least 8 to 10 times.

8.  Collect the Chi in the Tan Tien and rest.
Once you have completed circulating your energy in the MicroCosmic Orbit, rest it in your Tan Tien.  This is located just below the navel and inside the body about one inch.  Your Tan Tien is a safe place to store your energy.  Smile gently to this Chi and image a pearl growing in your abdomen.
Now, recline or lie down, and rest.  Calm your mind and allow the “practice” to effect your entire body.  The Chi will flow where it is needed and will rejuvenate, detoxify, and support you throughout the day!

D. Vaginal Weight Lifting
     The only difference between the Egg Exercise and Vaginal Weight Lifting procedure is the addition of a weight to the specially drilled egg. Or, you may easily hold the string, which hangs from the egg, and pull down while simultaneously drawing up with the vaginal muscles.
Usually an egg is chosen of approximately a one-inch diameter with holes drilled in it through which a string can be threaded for attachment to a weight. Use a sturdy string that can sustain at least ten to twenty pounds of weight, or use three strands of string. Begin with a one-half pound weight. You can buy a half-pound plate that has a hole through which the string can be tied, or use a small cotton or plastic bag into which a weight can be placed and the bag easily attached to the egg’s string and hung.

     Suspending weights from the egg is a most effective way to increase the strength of the pelvic and urogenital diaphragms and the vaginal muscles. This is also a tremendous exercise for the cervix, the ovaries, and the organs and glands. With the increase in weight, the vagina alone does not have enough strength to lift the weight, making it necessary for all the internal organs and glands to join in contributing to the strength. The heavier the weight the more counter pressure must be exerted by the vagina, the cervix, the ovaries, the diaphragm, the organs and glands. This extended effort will result in increased Chi pressure and hormone production. Make sure you can handle the weight well before adding more to it.

     The exact sequence of steps is then followed as described in the Egg Exercise above. This time, however, do not move the egg up and down. Hold it by tightening and squeezing the external and middle sections of the vaginal canal around the egg and pulling the egg up. Do not release it. This exercise is to be performed one time only, two to three times per week, with the weight gradually increasing in one-half pound increments, and not exceeding ten pounds.

E. Massage yourself.
     Massage the Hui-Yin point (the perineum). Massage the mons and the coccyx. This massaging after each exercise is very important. It will help you clear the remaining energy so that the body can absorb it easily.

F. Channel the energy in the Microcosmic Orbit.
     Gently tap the lower abdomen with your palm to remove the excess energy from the ovaries, vagina and clitoris. Use your mind and see bright, glittering Chi in the ovaries and uterus.  Sit down quietly and channel the excess energy down to the perineum and hold it for a moment.  Slightly squeeze anus, perineum, and sexual organs so the Chi does not leak out. Then, gently circulate this beautiful Chi  in the Microcosmic Orbit, so that all your organs will benefit.   Be sure to circulate at least 6 or 8 times and know that each time the Chi makes a full orbit, it becomes cleaner, lighter and easier to use.

G.  Collect the Chi in the Tan Tien and rest.
     Once you have completed circulating your energy in the MicroCosmic Orbit, rest it in your Tan Tien.  This is located just below the navel and inside the body about one inch.  Your Tan Tien is a safe place to store your energy.  Smile gently to this Chi and image a pearl growing in your abdomen.
Now, recline or lie down, and rest.  Calm your mind and allow the “practice” to effect your entire body.  The Chi will flow where it is needed and will rejuvenate, detoxify, and support you throughout the day!
