PaidaLajin method

aida means slapping Lajin means stretching
PaidaLajin successfully combines the two methods

·   PaidaLajin is an ancient self-rejuvenating practice used for centuries for self-healing and better strength on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

·   This is a vibrational medicine. It is easy, free of charge and one may choose to increase the intensity gradually.

·   It doesn't replace other medical treatments but it certainly makes the body stronger so it can heal and function better.

·   The pain and the coloration called by some people "bruises" appear ONLY when the body is sick, toxic and weak.

·   Therefore, this practice can be used as an excellent diagnostic method by everyone.

·   Millions of people around the world already proved the fact that after a few days regular practice, one can slap easier, longer and stronger, but no pain and bruises appear anymore. The body becomes cleaner, healthier and stronger!

·   Then one day the slapping feels like a good relaxing massage and a lot of people may even fall asleep while receiving PaidaLajin from others.


Slapping can be fun and it certainly heals

 The PaidaLajin Method

PaidaLajin is a Chinese self-healing method to restore health by facilitating smooth Qi flow in the body’s meridian system by drawing out and expeling poisonous waste in the body.

Paida (slapping)To pat and slap external skin areas to expel poisonous waste (in the form of Sha) and to restore health by facilitating the smooth flow of Qi throughout the meridians (energy channels in the body).

Lajin (stretching):  To stretch and to restore functions of the Jin (tendons) where Jin-Suo (contraction of tendons) has occurred, so as to restore health and prevent aging. It is a simple way of proactive health management. When carried out properly, it can enhance overall health and promote longevity by improving Qi and blood circulation, and clearing vital energy channels of the body. This in turn improves various conditions, acute or chronic, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, gynecological and prostate disorders, dislocations as well as pains caused by Jin-Suo. If you don't have a stretching bench yet, you can use chairs shown in the picture. Standing stretching using the door will heal shoulder problems while eliminating pain.

Where to paida in case of specific emergency

If you or your friends experience issues such as chest tightness, nausea, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, heat stroke, motion sickness, altitude sickness, abnormal sweating, face turning pale, overreaction, etc. you should seek immediately professional medical assistance.

However, while waiting, you may choose to follow Mr Hongchi Xiao's advice which he describes in his best-seller book "PaidaLajin Self-Healing" -

"Slap heavily on the inner elbow and Neiguan acupoint near the wrist."

Neiguan acupoint

Our personal experience shows that this advice is safe and very successful in restoring the innate self-healing powers within just a few minutes.
