the process is called conditioning, this is done by rolling objects (rolling pins, coke bottles) up and down the shins, this process deadens the nerves that surround your shins and this also helps calcium depost grow over shin bone.
that doesnt deaden nerves, by popular misconception. The nerves dont die or recede, the flesh and skin on the shin and the muscle around it becomes thicker and tougher.
also, calcium deposits dont form on the bone unless it has been fractured or broken (result of healing). The shin bone does get denser and therefore stronger
ps. rolling shit up and down your shins is a waste of time when you could be conditioning on the bag with far more effectiveness and also sharpening technique.
