Self-healing Through Slaps and Stretches
By Martin Louis March 9,2015
CHENNAI: All diseases in the world are caused by the blockages of meridians, the path through which the life energy flows, according to international healer Hongchi Xiao, who hails from China. He was speaking on the topic ‘Paida and Lajin Self-healing’ on the occasion of TAG-VHS Diabetes Research Centre-Fourth Annual Day Oration, which was held at Bhavan’s Dr Preetha Reddy Auditorium on Sunday. Xiao said that all diseases could be cured by unblocking the blockages, which was possible by following PaidaLajin self-healing technique.
“Paida means slapping and lajin means stretching. PaidaLajin is not a medical treatment. Everyone can do it.
When you start doing PaidaLajin, your body will become warmer and the blockages will melt away,” he told the gathering. He said that the pain was actually a gift from god as it helped one find out that the blockages indeed exist. “If there’s no pain, it means that you’re healthy,” he added.
Explaining the process, he said that Paida was all about slapping one’s joints.
“The four areas for paida are elbows, hands, knees and feet. This is because it is only through the joints that the meridians pass. More the pain implies more blockages and hence, more you need to slap yourself,” he said.
Xiao emphasised that this method helped eliminating the toxins from the body without causing any side effects, unlike consuming pills that almost always causes one or the other side-effect.
He said that stretching one’s body made one more flexible and healthier. He also advised them to practice Paida regularly, in order to stay fit.
BM Hegde, former vice-chancellor, Manipal University and co-chairman, TAG-VHS Diabetes Research Centre, who spoke on the topic ‘Health, Energy and Well-being:Wisdom of the Human Body’ on the occasion, said that the body had the mechanism of healing itself.
He added every pill prescribed by doctor resulted in side effects. “There is an illness following every pill,” he stated.
D Parthasarathy, sustaining patron donor and MD, Dollar Company, Chennai, was the guest of honour. MS Swaminathan, chairman, MS Swaminathan Research Foundation and president, Voluntary Health Service, Dr CV Krishnaswami, chairman, TAG-VHS Diabetes Research Centre and emeritus chief, VHS Diabetes Department, L Sabaretnam, chairman, Bhavan’s Chennai Kendra and KN Ramaswamy, director, Bhavan’s Chennai Kendra, were also present.
