Paida Relieved Altitude Sickness and More
 
This August, I travelled with several friends to a Sichuan-Tibetan region and stayed there for over 20 days. We shared PaidaLajin self-healing method and experienced how local Tibetans live their lives.

A friend and I brought Paida sticks with us. We like to both clap with hands and use Paida tools.
 

 
   

Our destination is a Tibetan village near Dzogchen Monastery, Dêgê County, Garzê Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan, China. On the way, our two drivers had severe stomach discomforts, neck, shoulder and back pains. We used a Paida stick on each of them, and relieved their neck, shoulder and stomach problems.
They drove long distances day in and day out, they liked cold drinks, had irregular meals and sleep, and the air-con in the car was always on, blowing freezing air directly at themselves and the passengers…No wonder they suffered from such pains and diseases. They were still quite young, and didn’t seem to care much about their health condition. They groaned only when it was too much for them. Paida helped relieve their symptoms; but to direct their health back on a normal track, they need to drive their life vehicle differently.

While in the car, we clapped our inner elbows so as to avoid possible altitude sickness. A 10-year-old had some red Sha, and much bluish purple Sha appeared in those who hadn’t practiced Paida before. As I clapped myself regularly, very little Sha emerged on my elbows even with heavy Paida.
Can you guess which elbow shows the result of self-help Paida, and which one was clapped by others?
 
One of our friends felt stomach ache, and borrowed my Paida stick to clap on his Zusanli acupoint. Sha lumps came out in a few minutes and much of the pain was relieved. He then continued to clap along the outer side of the calf, and with gentle Paida, many Sha lumps popped up.
 
Soon after we arrived at the village, he experienced symptoms of altitude sickness: dizziness, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, and lack of strength. We clapped along his inner elbows, and very easily got out piles of bluish dark Sha lumps. And his arms were still very swollen days after Paida.
 
He had the most Sha among us. Why? He works in a hotel with low-temperature air-conditioning all day long, and he again turns on the air-con when at home. And he admitted that his negative moods contributed to this much cold-dampness in his body.
Clapping on the head to relieve dizziness and headache
 
On the first day we arrived at the village some 4,000 meters above sea level, another friend also suffered altitude sickness: dizziness, headache, lack of strength, shortness of breath, rapid and irregular heartbeat. Together, we clapped his inner elbows, Neiguan acupoint and back of the feet. Soon his symptoms were much relieved. During Paida, his face showed peace and serenity. He had a sound sleep after Paida and gradually adapted to the new environment.
 
Another friend had waist pain for years; it relapsed and he could hardly walk because of the intense pain. Initially, he didn’t want any Paida. When he couldn’t take it any more, he gave in and asked us for help. We used Paida sticks to clap on the back of his knees. Much bluish Sha emerged, although we didn’t clap on his skin directly. After Paida, he sat up, walked and told us that 60-80% of the waist pain was gone.
 
Gradually, we learnt that people visiting a plateau can experience various symptoms of altitude sickness, and their past and existing pains and diseases could also relapse or even worsen. People living on a plateau also have altitude sickness and various pains, particular joint pains, because of their living conditions and habits (sitting or sleeping on the wet ground, cold drinks, etc.) And they can experience lowland sickness when they come down the plateau. The symptoms may vary, but all can be relieved with PaidaLajin.
 
My close friend had several patches of neurodermatitis. We took some time to Paida on them.
Before Paida


 
Paida till the skin broke. Blood and fluid began to seep out.

 
Continued heavy Paida until the entire patch bled.


“I had her blood on my hand.” Well, when one is willing to Paida, and the other is ready to take it, it benefits both parties.
Scab formed the day after Paida.

Thousands of lamas, Tibetans and visitors gathered together to watch Tibetan Buddhist performances.
 
 
Sunbathing and Paida

Clapping alternately with two Paida sticks feels and sounds like playing a drum.
Clapping with two Paida sticks together can be more penetrative.
Interactive game: kicks and claps

Paida can be creative, musical, and a lot of fun. It is a way of life, and a way to communicate. When we’re totally immersed in joyful Paida, we tend to forget the pain of it. Besides, soft Paida is little pain and very relaxing, nourishing. And when you fully accept heavy Paida, esp. when you have relatively smooth energy flow, even heavy Paida isn’t much pain.  
 
A lama trying Paida

Paida a Tibetan who had been in a wheelchair for eight years after a car accident. Horrendous Sha lumps appeared on his near-numb knees and calves. After Paida, he was able to walk several steps while holding a handrail. Hopefully he will be able to fully recover with persistence Paida.


 
We were staying at Ama’s home. She had high cholesterol, and pains in her head, stomach, waist, knees and ankles. Initially, she couldn’t understand why we should slap ourselves and each other. When she felt severe headache and was relieved with gentle Paida on the head, she came to appreciate the benefit of Paida. We took time to clap along her arms and the Stomach Meridian. And she did Paida on herself whenever she had time, mainly on her knees, ankles, feet.

During our stay there, Ama experienced several healing crises—stomach ache and waist pain which had tortured her for decades relapsed several times, and the symptoms were gone or much relieved after self-help Paida or Paida by us. Sometimes, when I clapped on her stomach or legs gently and rhythmically, she’d fall asleep and snore. When she woke up from the deep, sound sleep, she’d be much more spirited. We all noticed that she was getting younger and more beautiful day by day.
 
For me, I practice PaidaLajin regularly and share it whenever there is a need and/or an interest in it. During these 20 days, I clapped myself, did Y-style Lajin and clapped for others almost every day. I felt only mild altitude sickness and adapted well to life on the plateau, even during and after our climb up a snow-capped mountain over 7,000 meters above sea level.

Before the big day, I clapped on my inner elbows, Neiguan acupoint near each wrist, knees, Zusanli acupoint (along the Stomach Meridian) and ankles. And I encouraged others to do the same. They did some Paida on their own, but that may not be deep enough, and they hadn’t experienced thorough Paida all over the body. That probably explains why they felt acute altitude sickness (dizziness, headache, gasping for breath, very rapid heartbeat, cramps on legs, stomachache, nausea,), knee pain and ankle sprains during the 20-hour-long mountain climb, fatigue and severe leg pain for days afterwards. My friends needed extra oxygen supply and much rest to resume energy.

Doing Y-style Lajin to stretch, rest and wait for others
 
 
A lama told me, “Your ease in the mountain climb proves that PaidaLajin works. A better proof, actually, than if you heal someone with PaidaLajin.” Indeed so.

拍拉川藏行——搞定的岂止高原反应
 
 
    朋友多次邀约之下,我终于回应了心中的召唤,8月和小伙伴们川藏行,体验了地道的藏地生活,捎带分享拍打拉筋自愈法。一路风光、一路艰险、一路收获。
 

     作为资深拍友,朋友和我都有默契地带上了拍打“神器”——医行天下拍打棒。我俩都喜欢用手拍,也常用拍打棒,上高原带上个工具总能省点力气。

 


    

 
   
    这不,还没到高原,就给送我们的两位司机拍上了。颈肩腰痛、脾胃不和是司机的常见病,这两位都摊上了——他们不分昼夜长途驾驶,颈肩腰部的肌肉僵硬酸痛,加之他们喜欢冷饮,饮食睡眠不规律,又因自己和乘客贪凉,车里常开着空调对着身体直吹,落下这些个毛病实属正常。仗着人年轻,他们对身体发出的各种病痛警钟也满不在乎,直到痛得厉害才嚷嚷几句。拍打当场缓解了他们的肩颈问题。不过,要想让身体走上良性循环的道路,司机们可得换种开法了。
 

     行进途中,我们照例看风景、拍照、吃喝玩乐。加上拍打的调剂,更是多了些声色滋味。10来岁的小朋友怕是吃多了动少了不消化,一路连环臭屁,拍打足三里和屁股之后放得更多更臭。我们无数次被熏晕,小家伙却以此为荣,乐在其中,时常发布通知“快捂住口鼻……”我们集体无语,屏住呼吸急开车窗也躲之不及。人家却对放屁之学侃侃而谈、如数家珍,成了“屁话连篇”的小专家。在这20来天里,我们时不时接受考验,最后发现人家是“先斩后奏”,难怪……

     在车上闲来无事,我们就拍一拍,提前预防高反。小朋友的胳膊肘拍出了红痧,平时没拍过的伙伴们肘关节都拍出了大片青黑肿痧。
 
猜猜:哪边是自拍的,哪边是互拍的?
 
 
    一位伙伴肚子不舒服,挥舞拍打棒自拍足三里出痧后缓解,顺道拍小腿外侧,中了大奖,轻拍下去一路肿包。下图为证,实际出痧状况更壮观。
 
轻拍小腿外侧,冒出一片山丘
 
 
    到了目的地,他有些高原反应,出现心跳加快、呼吸不畅、头晕、乏力等症。我们再给他拍完两个胳膊内侧,同样是轻松拍出成片青黑色的痧包,围观者无不啧啧称奇。几天之后,他的胳膊还肿痛得厉害。
 
    他出的痧最多最快。为何?他常年在酒店低温空调环境中工作,回到家中也是习惯开着空调休息、睡觉。另外,他本人也承认,体内这么多寒湿,也跟他的情绪有关。地球人都知道,不是吗?
    
     边走边游数日后,我们到达甘孜佐钦村,住在藏民阿妈家。阿妈的两个儿子在很小的时候就被送到附近山谷的佐钦寺出家,如今已修学有成。他们的年龄比我们小,生活点滴中透出的圆满无碍,着实让人赞叹。
  我们只会说“我饿了”、“我饱了”、“谢谢”、“我要上厕所”等几句简单的藏语,与喇嘛和藏民之间的交流却很有默契,因为,他们似乎比我们更知道我们的需要,知道如何照顾好我们。在这海拔4000多米的高原山村,我们过上了一段世外桃源般的日子:电脑手机退居二线,在蓝天白云下挂经幡、绕佛塔、参加佛会、爬雪山过草地、烹饪和品尝美食、泡温泉、闲聊、晒背、拍打……
 
白云朵朵 碧水幽幽
 

 
刚到高原头痛头晕?拍拍头嘛



 

    高原生活第一日,一位小伙伴心跳加速、胸闷气短、头痛头晕、浑身乏力。大家一拥而上,拍打其手肘、内关、脚背后很快缓解。小伙伴被拍得一脸幸福,睡一觉后就逐渐适应了高原气候。
 
 
一位小伙伴陈年腰痛发作,行走时疼痛不已,拍打其腘窝后缓解60-80%。
 
 
    我们逐渐知道,内地人到高原多有各种高原反应,旧有的伤病也可能再度显现。高原人在高原也常有高原反应和关节疼痛,到内地也会有低原反应。每个人出现的症状不尽相同,但都可以通过拍打拉筋缓解、消除。
 
    一位小伙伴身上有几处神经性皮炎,我们抽空把这些部位狠狠关照了一番,效果显著。

拍至破皮、渗液、出血

 
继续重拍至整块皮炎处出血

 
“我的手上沾满了别人的鲜血……”

    这活儿您干吗?前提是双方一个愿打,一个愿挨,对互拍双方都有益哟!
 
拍后第二天皮肤结痂

两个拍打棒轮流拍打,如同击鼓奏乐
 

 
两个拍打棒叠加拍打,更加夯实渗透
 

 
好玩的互动游戏:你踢我一脚,我拍你一下
 
 
    创意时常造访,拍打也可以玩出些新鲜花样。我们用手或工具轻拍重击,拳打脚踢,播一首心曲调和彼此的节拍,在身心的律动中共舞、沉醉,乐而忘痛。在我们心中,拍打就是平日里的举手之劳,是预防、保健、养生,是交流方式,是行为艺术,是游戏,是鼓乐,是禅悦……
 
 
喇嘛体验拍打
 

     一位铁棒喇嘛有腿痛、痛风等症,对于拍打拉筋这种“以痛治痛”的狠招内心非常认同,尽管拍拉过程中痛得呲牙咧嘴,他也坚持下来不哼一声。第二天问起拍后情况,曰“轻松多了”。要是一群小喇嘛围着他天天拍上一阵,多欢快就能搞定这些痛症呢!
 
    一位藏民8年前出了车祸,损伤了头部和腿部,导致下肢瘫痪,行动不便,照顾他和孩子们的重担落在他老婆身上。他本人的乐观开朗和一家人携手坦然面对生活的状态给我们留下了深刻印象。我们给他重拍膝关节和小腿,出了很重的黑痧。拍打过程中他能感受到腿部轻微的麻痛,拍后能扶着横杆挪动步子。他才30出头,坚持拍打拉筋一定能行动自如,再次成为家庭的顶梁柱。

 
 

 

 

    阿妈是我们的重点关照对象,她有高血脂、头痛、胃痛、腰痛、膝痛和踝关节肿痛等病症。我们一来就给她拍了两只胳膊内侧,出痧并不多。阿妈心态超好,人很淡定,通过拍打祛头痛,以及我们比手画脚的沟通也明白了拍打的好处,从此时常抽空自拍。这期间,阿妈经历了几次气冲病灶,胃痛、腰痛数度发作,她自述这些都是几十年的老毛病了。通过自拍和我们帮拍,症状都极大缓解或消失,有几次轻拍之下阿妈睡得香甜,打起了呼噜,醒来之后精气神好多了。我们都发现,阿妈在变得更加年轻漂亮了呢!
 
    我们应邀到寂静山谷中的玛琼德玛学校和师生、义工们分享自愈法。因语言不通,大部分孩子对自愈法的理论讲解似懂非懂,在实际操练环节(自拍、互拍肘关节,拍打膝关节、围成一圈互拍手背和肩膀等),大家都兴致高昂、干劲十足。藏语老师和义工们都对拍打拉筋很感兴趣,主动试掌、提问、加微信。希望他们有了自愈法书籍和拉筋凳后坚持拍拉,少些病痛,并将自愈法分享给当地藏民。
在高寒藏地,从几岁的孩童到老年人,都有比较重的寒湿,头痛、关节痛是常见病,拍打肘关节和膝关节出痧壮观。究其原因,跟气候环境和他们的生活习惯有关。高原寒湿重,昼夜温差大,藏民们时常率性地坐/躺在草地上,各种口味的饮料喝得起劲……经年累月,身体自然会有寒湿、毒素的负累。
 
此行的一大重头戏是登海拔7000多米的佐钦圣山。佛会刚过,我们就整装待发。行前,我们对即将经历的一切一无所知,对向导和自己信心具足,小兴奋中更多的是平静。凌晨3:30起床,用糌粑和酥油茶填饱了肚子(几位小伙伴始终不习惯藏地饮食,另食他物),4点多钟,我们驱车来到山脚下,开始在电筒的微光中登山。小伙伴中有超爱拍照的,一路行来一路拍,拍得靓照无数,也与先头部队拉开了距离。走走、停停、玩玩、拍拍、等等,集体行动中的一切原生态呈现。
 

 
 
在海拔6000多米的山岩边吃早餐
 
走过山谷和山腰的密林、草地、河流、湖泊,前方光秃秃的山脊显得可望又可及。伙伴们喘着粗气,好不容易登了上去,却发现我们要攀登的不是一座山,而是山脉,是连绵的群山,那在云端之上的雪山山峰还在前方。在这空气稀薄的高山之上,人会自然地思想单纯,连抱怨喊累的念头都如浮云般飘走了。
继续向前,我们逐渐发现,4位藏族向导尽管背负着自己和我们的行囊,却都呼吸均匀、神色淡定,攀岩走壁生龙活虎,要不是等着我们,照料我们,早不知爬上哪个山头了。小伙伴们早已张大嘴巴不住喘气,走走歇歇,把氧气瓶拿来用了一次又一次。
年近60岁的阿妈时常走到最前面,我紧随其后。众人嘱咐我照顾好阿妈,其实,攀爬高岩和峭壁过程中,多是阿妈在拉我一把。这一日日的相处过程中,我时常感动于阿妈的大气、坚韧、灵性,喜欢对视她那知悉一切、包容一切的大眼睛。这次爬山跟着她、学习她,沾点光,也觉得脚步轻盈了,相信这高山之上有足够多的氧气和能量支撑我们一直走下去。走得心跳加速、呼吸沉重时,我就缓一缓,调调呼吸,用拍痧棒狠拍肘关节和内关穴。接着继续上路。
 
 
就地Y式拉筋,松筋、休息、等人均不误
 
 
 

     终于,在下午3点多,我们登上了雪山山顶。高处不胜寒,上面只有石头和冰雪,如同置身外星球。伙伴们又是一阵拍照、玩雪、嬉闹。

为了当天能够返回驻地,我们不敢太多耽搁,紧赶慢赶地下山。上山艰险下山也难,同伴们先后出现头晕目眩、腹痛腹泻(喝了冰凉的雪水;我也喝了雪水,在口中温热后小口吞下,所以没事)、膝盖半月板疼痛、腿抽筋、脚踝扭伤、皮肤被刺破等状况。因为要赶路,我们没有停下来专门拍打,只是把拍打棒递给了有需要的伙伴让其自拍。我时常在阿妈停下来休息等人之际,给她拍拍膝盖。

夜幕降临,圆月升空,我们继续赶路,从光秃秃的岩石堆走到灌木丛、草原、山谷,翻过一个又一个山头,走到莲师曾经修行的山洞,已是晚上8-9点了。一位小伙伴右膝僵直、疼痛难忍,自感无法继续走下去,决定在山洞中住一晚,明早再下山。这正合我意,可借陪她之机在山洞中体验静修一刻。不过,大家为了我们的安全着想,担心可能出现豺狼虎豹和坏人加害我们,力主我们一起下山。讨论来讨论去,最终,小伙伴豁出去了,既然都敢独自留下,又何惧腿痛不能继续下山呢?这也是为了成全大家的关切之意。

都说再走一个多小时就能到山脚下,我们怀抱希望一直走,走到没人再问前路还有多远,又走了3-4个小时,到晚上12点多钟才到山脚。回到阿妈家中,爬山途中累得不行的师兄亲自下厨给我们做了暖心的晚餐,吃过饭后,已经凌晨2点多钟。

     事后回顾总结,阿妈说,我爬山比较轻松是因为我爱吃糌粑,吃了糌粑扛饿、有劲儿。的确如此。更深层的原因,是我每到一处就喜欢吃当地的食物,按当地人的节奏过日子。这次也不例外,因此适应较快,高原反应轻微。再则,这些年我时常拍打拉筋,经络相对通畅。这次在高原,我更是每天拉筋、自拍、拍人。爬山前一天,我2次Y式拉筋,并重点拍打了肘关节内侧、内关穴、足三里、脚背、脚踝等处,心态上也放松。爬山过程中和爬山之后的几天,我的腿脚和整个身心都比较轻松。

伙伴们虽然也在我们的忽悠号召下拍打了几个重点部位,不过,拍得不一定透彻,而且,他们全身都还没有“地毯式轰炸”过一遍呢!爬山过程中需要吸氧、出现各种高原反应,爬山后腿脚和全身酸痛乏力很正常。好在大家都有如神助,顺利走完全程,感觉此行很圆满。

大家在这个过程中加深了对拍打拉筋的认识。喇嘛说,我的状态很能说明问题,比我拍好别人更有说服力。是的,咱们拍友都得“打铁自身硬”,才能更好地分享传播自愈法。

我们没有专业的装备,没有对雪山的基本认识,凭着信念走了20多小时,手脚并用地爬过多少悬崖峭壁,眼看飞石在脚下滚落深谷,用眼、用手、用整个身心贴近雪山的圣洁,感知和超越身心极限。我们都觉得,以后生活中遇到难事,想起当天爬雪山的经历,就会觉得没什么大不了的。

     本文只是我个人从拍打拉筋的角度回顾此次川藏行的点滴经历。此行的每个人都有全方位的体验,我们的生命状态在彼此的心中鲜活起来,我们的心灯在照亮着自己和彼此前行的道路。尽管这是我首次藏地行,我却感觉到许多场景、言行如此熟悉,在结束此行之后发生的事亦然……我获赠一本《生死的幻觉》,还没来得及细看,就直面这一人生课题。生死都是幻觉,其他不更是心的造作么?
