does qigong burn jing/essence?

Hi
Acording to my understanding is that if we use breathing the body produces energy from the kidneys. Does this mean that the essence gets burned? If so then how is it possible to live longer? (if jing is the essence of life as many books says.)

I would assume that when practiced correctly, Qigong would transmute the jing essence rather than literally burning it away. Jing can literally be destroyed through certain indiscretions according to my understanding, and improperly practiced Qigong can burn it up, yet proper training that focuses on moving the Qi would transmute it from one form into another and thus increase longevity.
