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.
Wearing local Tibetan dresses

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.

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.
