Most of the diseases of men are as old as humankind and prostatitis is not an exception. Ancient civilizations like Chinese or Indian have developed their unique systems of body healing. These systems have passed the test of time for their effectiveness throughout hundreds of generations. However, nowadays, when pharmaceutical companies offer so many solutions, giving an instant result for any illness of any organ, the practices of a holistic view of all body systems often assuming long-term healing process, predominantly have been forgotten or not widely used. Some of the Chinese medical practices demonstrate exceptional results in getting rid of prostatitis. This experience deserves much more attention and advertising as it is superior useful, simple, safe, no adverse side effects, applicable to almost all diseases, and can be quickly adapted in self-healing. Let’s dig a bit deeper to answer the questions why and how we can cure prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain following these quite straightforward practices.
Energy meridians – the central dogma of Chinese medicine.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, our body has a unique self-healing system: every organ has its meridian-an invisible energy flowing channel or so-called energy Chi. The smooth flow of Chi ensures steady blood running and accordingly, the life support of the organs. This system of self-healing is a right of birth of everyone and allows a human to correct any disorders in his body. We have in total 14 meridians and numerous active or acupuncture points along each meridian. All kinds of internal or external stress factors can cause blockage of one or another meridian, which in turn, violates the due blood supply of the appropriate organ and eventually manifests itself as a disease. Please watch this video, and you will have the best understanding of how our emotions, attitudes, and feelings affect the free flow of Chi.
So, to cure any disease of any organ, Chinese medicine recommends cleansing relevant meridian by stimulating the active points on it. An ultimate goal of any Chinese practices, whether it is acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, yoga, herbal medicine, massage, paida (slapping) or lajin (stretching) is unblocking of the meridians and recovery of the free flow of Chi.
Paida and Lajin -simple though effective practices of the Chinese medicine.
Due to tireless endeavors of Master Hongchi Xiao these practices of the traditional Chinese medicine have become available and famous worldwide for the last decade. In short, Paida means slapping (patting) the specific areas of the skin to draw out toxic waste in the body and Lajin means stretching tendons and ligaments to make the body flexible. These two technics despite their simplicity, are more efficient on complex diseases like leg and lower back pain, prostate and kidney disorders, liver problems, and so on.
Unlike acupuncture or acupressure where you need to know the exact location of active points, Paida and Lajin methods almost need no time for mastering.
Foremost, Paida and Lajin methods address regulating the blood system and heart functionality, followed by unblocking of specific meridians. Dietary therapies, meditation, healthy lifestyle, can support and accelerate the healing effect of the practices.
Let’s examine how these methods work and how to manage them to cure prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain symptoms.
Cure prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain by Paida and Lajin practices.
The holistic approach to the body systems suggests prostatitis treatment by unblocking not only the Urinary Bladder Meridian, which is responsible for the health in the pelvic area but Heart Meridian as well. Whatever health issue you have Hongchi Xiao recommends to paida hands, elbows, knees, and feet – the principal areas, where the meridians of the major vital organs cross. The slapping of these areas helps to unblock the Heart Meridian, first of all, to ensure smooth blood flowing throughout the body.
Urinary Bladder Meridian addresses any conditions of men’s urinary and reproductive systems: prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation. This meridian starts from the head and ends in the toe. Being the longest meridian of our body, it also connects to the meridians of Spleen, Liver, and Kidney. To detoxify and unblock the Urinary Bladder Meridian one need to paida the abdomen, the base of thighs, and the inner sides of legs.
Practicing Paida and Lajin on thousands of men and women around the world, Hongchi Xiao found them more effective in curing prostatitis problems, especially in older men; the positive effect is almost immediate, and efficacy of the methods is about 90%.
How to paida correctly?
There are no limits in time length as well as the frequency of Paida practice during a day. You should paida the relevant areas as long as “toxic” or “polluted” blood or Sha shows up, it may vary individually, and depending on the blockage severity may take from 2 to 10 minutes. This blood entirely disappears in the next 2-3 days. It is not a bruise, how do we imagine it; if you keep paida the same area, it may disappear during the next 20-30 minutes, but not expanding. You can paida one area a time, but in the case of severe prostatitis symptoms, the duration of Paida should be prolonged to one hour a day or more. You should paida until the appearance of Sha stops.
Practice Paida in combination with Lajin for better effects. Chinese medicine considers tendons and ligaments contraction and degeneration as a principal cause of aging and most disorders. The statement “No pain no gain” best describes the primary rule of Lajin practice. You have to stretch as much as you can, and pain will address blockages of the meridians.
Lajin in a reclining position is the most useful practice. When practiced correctly, one leg should be attached to the board and the foot of the second leg must touch the floor. Pain and numbness in the pelvic area, thighs, and behind of the knees evidence the active process of energy channels cleansing, facilitating Chi and blood flow.
Lajin is extremely useful in mitigation prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain symptoms, sexual disorders, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Do Lajin for 10-40 minutes for each leg in a reclining position. Starting term may change individually, but one should remember that the longer the practice, the better the result. However, you shouldn’t fool yourself by the simplicity of Paida and Lajin practices. If you are eager to get rid of prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain symptoms, you have to immerse yourself mentally, physically and socially into the process of self-healing rather than just limiting by these exercises for 1 hour or so every day. That’s why the workshops lasting for only one week show much better results and healing effect than individual practices for months. Along with Paida and Lajin practices for 4-5 hours a day workshop schedule includes meditative jogging, fasting, meditation, and vegetarian diet too.
Why should we trust Paida and Lajin practices?
While you can find numerous testimonies of grateful patients from across the world if you search “Paida and Lajin” on Google, I draw your attention to only one case among many others from Hongchi Xiao book “Paida & Lajin Self-Healing.”
He interviewed 285 participants of his workshops in 2013: 97 males and 188 females. Of these, 243 (85%) continued Paida and Lajin after seminars and most of them, 226 (93%) stopped the medication completely. 134 of those 226 reported excellent health, 76 – better health than was before the workshop and only 16 (7%)- the same health as was when they took the medication.
The interviews of 2015 and 2016 showed similar results and up to 100% alleviation of prostatitis symptoms.
And what I noticed, the most advanced clinics in the USA and Europe, engaged in the treatment of prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome, use almost the same approaches in their work. The BioPsychoSocial program of “The chronic pelvic pain clinic, London UK” include “combinations of mindfulness, meditation, meaningful movement, meaningful activity, stretching, yoga, social activities, self-massage, supplementation, lifestyle, and dietary changes.”
Help your body to heal yourself; everyone has a unique system of self-healing, Paida and Lajin are powerful tools cleansing energy channels and can be easily adapted to cure prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome. No secret that the Paida and Lajin practices target muscle tightness and stiffness accumulated in the pelvic area and prostate gland particularly. One of the leading healing factors of both methods is a local temperature increase; the same approach I practiced when applied a warm antiinflammatory decoction to get rid of my prostatitis. It’s evident that the combination of decoction enema, described earlier and Paida and Lajin methods should accelerate a healing process.
Continue Paida and Lajin even after the disease has been overcome: “These exercises could be adopted as life-long habits so that we can be free from the need of medications, injections, and surgeries” says Hongchi Xiao.
