The Mind Body Transmission Technique is a hijutsu utilised by members of the Yamanaka clan to telepathically communicate with people.


Using this technique, the Yamanaka may also act as a medium for persons to communicate with one another telepathically; this is done through establishing physical contact with the person.[1] The user can communicate with multiple people at once and the targets can also communicate with one another while the technique is in effect.[2]

This technique is not limited to just transmitting thoughts, and images such as memories or even strong feelings can be conveyed through this method.[3] The more people that are connected through this technique however, the more a physical strain is put on the user, forcing them to keep the connection going for shorter periods to otherwise avoid sustaining injuries. When Inoichi overexerted himself keeping up a connection with the entire Allied Shinobi Forces for more than ten seconds, it caused him to suffer a nosebleed.
