4On his 40th birthday, Mr. Xiao Hongchi gave up his successful career as a financier on Wall Street and in Hong Kong and began his quest to learn Chinese medicine from special masters and doctors in monasteries, temples, and even deep forests in China.Over the years, he met and learned from tens of legendary medical masters and doctors. He mastered many medical skills and arts which previously thought lost, including rare acupuncture and acupressure theories and techniques, La-Jin and Pai-Da auto-theorapies, bone-setting methods, and knife theorapy.Since then, Mr. Xiao has vowed to devote his life to restoring peoples’ health and promote many of these almost-lost treasures of auto-therapies. He regards his path as a way to “achieve spiritual enlightenment through healing people with physical illness and elevating their minds.”

26La Jin Method 7Squat stretching MethodIt is the oldest La-Jin method. You squat as if you were shitting.Step 1: Squat yourself down with your close feet pressed to the ground.Step 2: Hug your legs with your hands and lower your head (The Daoists call it “baby hugging”, a pose of a baby in the womb.
27EffectsThis exercise will help stretch your muscles in the neck, breast, waist, back, coccygeal vertebra, crus and activate the meridians and collaterals in your body to facilitate the smooth flow of Qi and blood and bowel movement. It also helps the treatment of a great part of such known chronic diseases as high blood pressure, heart disease, andrological disease, gynecopathy, kidney deficiency, arms deficiency, constipation and hemorrhoids.It is an excellent daily health-care method.InstructionIf someone cannot squat all the waydown to the ground, it doesn’t matter.If one practices often, one willgradually be able to squat down withhis or her soles pressing the ground.
28In addition to its therapeutic functions, La-Jin can also help in diagnosis. Bodily illness can be diagnosed from La-Jin posture and treated in the course of the La-Jin practice. Take the following examples: 1 If the knees have pain and are not able to straighten, these are symptoms of Jin Suo, which indicates a blockage in the Liver Meridian (the channel related to liver), because liver governs the Jin. A blockage in the Liver Meridian will certainly affect the stomach and the spleen. The liver belongs to the wood, while the spleen belongs to the earth, and wood influences earth. 2 If there is pain in the hip and the back of the knees, it shows that the passage of the Bladder Meridian is blocked, and the kidney has problems. This is because the bladder and the kidney are closely connected, both belonging to the water; neither one can be healthy if the other one is not. Diseases caused by the blockage of the Bladder Meridian include edema, obesity, frequent micturition, diabetes, and so on.
293 During La Jin in reclining position, if Raised hands and arms cannot reach the surface of the bench. It is related with such diseases as frozen shoulder, heart, lung, head, five sense organs, galactophore.4 Raised leg cannot stretch straight and lowered leg hangs in the air without touching the ground, which suggests that Jin Suo is serious, and the liver, spleen, kidney channels are not smooth, and there will be the ache in the waist and back or even troubles with abodominal organs. Women with these symptoms are likely to have gynecopathy whereas men with these probably have troubles with their prostate.
30Will La Jin cause damage to Jin or muscles? 1 La Jin is a natural rational exercise. Pain, numbness, ache, swollerpain and others imply that Qi and blood cannot flow smoothly so it requires La Jin practice to make it smooth.2 La Jin is a self-controlled exercise with appropriate intensity and time. You can control it so as not to hurt yourself with overstretching.3 You feel painful while La-Jin, which will suggest that something is wrong with your body. You will bring your pain under a tolerable control by flexibly manipulating intensity and time.4 Beginners, patient with severe diseases, aged people cannot stretch too much. They had better lengthen their time of La-Jin gradually and increase their strength bit by bit.5 Someone said that his Jin was hard from his childhood. In fact, hard Jin sounds a alarm for bodily troubles, which suggests that something is wrong with liver because liver controls the muscles. Therefore, he should La-Jin.6 No matter how much time or what form you use in La-Jin, if you don’t feel painful, numb and swollen, which suggests that your bones are in the right place and your Jins are smooth, thus Qi and blood flow naturally.
31How to La-Jin in a proper sequence? At home or in the office, it is also feasible to do La-Jin with the help of furniture or other living goods.Here we will take La-Jin in a reclining position for example.It does not matter if you cannot fully stretch out your arms or make your feet close to the pillar. Slow down and make your body get used to the feeling of La Jin.If your knee goes down when you are raising up your feet, you may fasten it on the pillar. (La-Jin on La Jin bench)If your foot cannot touch the ground when put down, you may weight it with sandbag or other heavy stuff.Step on something.
32La-Jin is easy to learn, but be sure you do it in a proper sequence La-Jin is easy to learn, but be sure you do it in a proper sequence. Slow down your movement to prevent from unnecessary muscle strains.(Phase 1) The foot on ground may step on books in order to better support the foot in the air.(Phase 2) Draw out some books to lower down the supporting foot.
33(Phase 3) Continue to draw out books If you La Jin with chairs, gradually, your arms will be straighter and the foot raised will be closer to the wall.
34(Phase 4) Congratulations (Phase 4) Congratulations! Your supporting foot is finally on the ground now.
35What are the possible physical responses brought by La-Jin? Type 1:Pain, numbness, ache, swelling pain, itchiness, and feeling fired (yawning)(Note)These physical responses above are normal reactions in natural therapy. In traditional Chinese medicine science, it is called “Qi Chong Bing Zao”, which means that the healthy Qi struggles with the sickness. To some extent, this is the darkness before dawn breaks.The responses are a signal which tells you that the stagnated meridians are now being dredged.
36Type 2:Erythema, blister, dizziness, headache, hiccup, feeling sick, phlegm, running nose, farting, extremely stinky excrement and urine(Note)1. All these responses are detoxification reaction. When these symptoms appear, you should go on doing La-Jin orPai-Da. After the inner self-clearing, the body condition will gradually recover, and you might even have the feeling of being reborn.2. La-Jin and Pai-Da should be continued as daily practice after recovering health. However, the length and intensity could be reduced.
37Cautions for in La-Jin1 One should wear long dress when doing La-Jin. Air-conditioner should be turned off because the pores will open during La Jin which might make you catch cold.2 If it is difficult for you to practice La-Jin in lying position, you may slightly bent your knees to ease your pain, but do remember to draw your knees back when landing them on the ground to avoid bowlegs.3 Patients of hypertension, cardiac diseases, osteoporosis or other patients with weak body condition should first ask for doctors’ advice before doing La-Jin . People who have Jin-Suo will definitely feel painful during La-Jin, and experience high blood pressure and rapid heartbeat. It is better to rest head on a pillow to release the blood rush to the head.4 The aged people, patients of osteoporosis and people who have serious illness might faint away because of pain. Therefore, these people should not advance too quickly. Proper practice intensity is necessary as well as persistence.5 If you find your hands or feet feeling numb, or if you have symptoms such as cold sweat or blue in the face (called hyperventilation syndrome in western medicine), you should cover your mouth and nose with a paper or plastic bag to create a closed system. The symptoms will disappear in about five minutes.
38How long does it take to La-Jin in reclining position How long does it take to La-Jin in reclining position? How about the intensity?Time duration of La-JinThere is no fixed time duration of La Jin. The suggestion is ten minutes for each leg, but this is no standard either, just for your reference.1.It is all right for most healthy people to straight the raising leg and set the other leg on the ground. However, for some weak people, it is hard to manage. Someone might even feel instant pain when they lie on the chair. For these people, La-Jin should be practiced in a progressive manner in terms of both duration and intensity.2.For people who often dance or do yoga, 10 minutes of La Jin would not be difficult. If they extend the time duration to 20 minutes or half an hour, all effects will turn up. Chronics such as insomnia, constipation or cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases will also disappear gradually.
39Intensity of La JinThe intensity of La Jin varies from one practice to another and has no fixed standard, but should also not exceed one’s suffertibility.1.You can ask someone else to help press your leg, or you may use sandbags.2.The hand that is stretched to the back may carry weights such as dumbbells, bags or dictionaries. This may increase your pain, but is definitely more effective in curing many diseases such as frozen shoulder, breast illness and cardiac diseases.3.This way of La Jin incorporated with proper breath requires arm extension to the back. It has obvious effects for fat females or those ladies that have pendulous breasts, because La Jin in reclining position could change the direction of the force of gravity to breasts.
40TerminologyPai: PattingDa: SlappingPai-Da: A Chinese Medical method which utilize patting and slapping of external skin areas to draw out and eliminate poisonous waste in body and restore health by facilitating the smooth flow of Qi throughout the meridiansSha: poisonous blood
41What are the principles of Pai-Da? 1 Skin is closely related to the meridians, our limbs, five viscera, six entrails and nine apertures (including the eyes, ears, nostrils, mouth, urethra and anus).2 Pai Da will launch one’s faith and mental forces, and will stimulate relevant meridians to dredge the Qi. The running Qi will in turn bring out the running of blood. The unobstructed meridians could cure diseases.3 The patted and slapped parts on the body will automatically gather Qi and blood, and then accelerate the circulation. As sweepers, the intensified Qi could scan the body and dredge the obstructed meridians. As a result, the body waste, illnesses and even tumors will be cleared.4 Viewing from the perspective of the western medicine, Pai-Da is a positive-breaking therapy which will stimulate the central nervous system. Therefore, the inner body systems could be activated and help repair the damaged parts, and finally improve the immunity function of human body.
42Generally speaking, there is an up-down turn as follows: (Step 1) Pat the headPat the top of the head with both handsPat the sides of the head with both handsPat the back of the head with both handsPat the back of the head with one hand (one hand is more convenient, and could nicely cover the head)(Step 2) Slap the back of the shoulderPat the right side with left hand, and the left side with the right hand; remember to pat all sides of the shoulder
43(Step 3) Slap both armpits and the inner sides of the shoulder Patients with cardiac diseases, lung diseases and breast diseases should do this step more.(Step 4) Slap the inner sides of the elbow jointsIncluding all meridians of the inner sides which include the heart-channel of the inner sides and the lung-channel and the large intestine channel at the rims of the outer sides, as well as the pericardium channel in the middle(Step 5) Slap the kneesPat the fronts of the knees with both hand and make sure that the knee is covered by the whole palm; pat the inner sides, outer sides and the popliteal spaces.This step could be applied to cure all foot and leg diseases. La-Jin as supplement will bring better results.
44(Step 6) Slap the feetPat the arches, insteps and the ankles with power. This step can not only cure the foot diseases, but also bring good curative effects for all internal organ diseases.(Step 7) Slap any body-parts according to the needAfter all the six steps above, you may Pai-Da any body-parts according to your illness.What if there is no enough time?Pat the following important parts:For most chronic and acute diseases, the elbows, knees, groins and feet are the focus, because these parts have the most toxins, and are the concentrated areas of meridians, blood vessels, nerves and lymph.
45How to Pai-Da in a proper way? 1 Pat and slap attentivelyConcentration and faith will increase the positiveenergy in your body. Distracting thoughts couldbring negative effects.2 Pat and slap with powerIf you feel the pain of slapping, that means you areon the right way. The pain will eliminate the illness.3 Pat and slap with your mindWhen slapping the skin, you can imagine that youare injecting fresh Qi into the body and bringing outthe turbid Qi out.4 Use your palms and fingers in a proper wayWhen slapping a larger area such as the front of theknees, use both palm and fingers; if the area isrelatively small, such as the popliteal space , youcould mainly use the fingers with agile movement ofthe wrist.5Best to recite or chant mantras or scriptures whilepatting and slapping: Reciting mantras or scriptureswill bring a better result; you may choose yourfavorite mantras or scriptures.
46The time length of Pai-Da, the frequency of Pai-Da 1Pai-Da can be done at any time in a day. You can form a habit of Pai-Da and Pat and slap in the morning and at night or you can do this in the morning, afternoon and at night.2 For healthy people, you can pat the head, shoulders, armpits, elbows and knees for one to five minutes each time. You should at least do this once or twice a day.3 For sub-health cases, besides Pai-Da the parts mentioned above, you can pat and slap the nidus for a longer time. Generally the time length should be between five to thirty minutes for once or twice a day. You can also Pai-Da more times each day.4 For those who feel under the weather or have obvious nidus should pat or slap the nidus for at least half an hour each time. For example, those who suffer from knee pains, frozen shoulder , cervical spondylosis, headache and insomnia can pat and slap the knees and elbows more frequently for at least once or twice a day.
475 For those who suffer from serious illnesses, such as people who are unable to lift the shoulders or walk, or suffer from psoriasis , heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or cancer should rash-pat top-down from the head to the feet with the focus on the elbows, knees, feet and the nidus for at least one hour and at least three times a day. And the time length of each Pai-Da should be reduced as the disease remises.6 After several times of Pai-Da, it is not as easy to have Sha as before but if you continue Pai-Da it can promotes blood circulation, keep you fit and even treat the disease.7 The time length and frequency of Pai-Da varies according to individuals. Whether there is Sha or not after Pai-Da, it can be applied everyday to both the sick and the health.8 One Pai-Da session can also be divided into several sessions with each session focuses on one particular part of the body.
48The time length of Pai-Da Directions:1 For health care you can slap from head to foot for fifteen to twenty minutes.For the people who suffer from serious illnesses the time for Pai-Da should be one hour at least. After Sha has appeared you should keep slapping. Because Sha is the poisonous blood, it reveals the body waste, illnesses. Keep slapping can clear them off. The body will finish the elmination of toxicant as Sha disappears .That’s the secret of the magic effect of Pai-Da.2 For the difference of physical condition and the strength of slapping from individuals, it’s quite different from each other that how long you should pat and slap until Sha appears and then disappears. So the maximum length of time of Pai-Da varies from person to person. We kindly suggest that aged people ,children, the weak, and severely sick persons should follow in proper sequence during their Pai-Da.3 For daily health care we suggest you pat the head, slap the back of the shoulder, both armpits and the inner sides of the shoulder, slap the inner sides of the elbow joints, the knees, the minimum length of time for each position is one minute.4 For the purpose of treatment, besides Pai-Da the parts mentioned above, you can pat and slap the nidus for a longer time. Generally the minimum length of time should be five minutes for each position.
49How to tell the health situation from the color of the sha? Sha, i.e. poisonous blood, is the colorful thing on the skin after Pai-Da. If you Pai-da the healthy parts of the body with the same amount of force, there won’t be Sha; otherwise the unhealthy body will show symptoms on the skin after Pai-da .Sha reflects the illness of the body; otherwise the skin won’t have Sha coming along after Pai-da . More sha means more serious of the disease.The darker the color of the Sha, the more poison, coldness, heat and other pathogenic factors are in the body.Rubeosis: healthy; normalRed: wind-heat; usually can be found with the sub-health groupPurple red: stasis-heat and it is prone to feel painCyan: phlegm-dampness and it is prone to feel tiredPurple black: stasis; shows the patient suffers from a large accumulation of body endotoxin and microcirculatory disturbanceBlack: shows the patient suffers from chronic disease and has been taking medication for a long time.
50According to the position of the Sha, one can tell the illness or the potential illness of the corresponding organs and the Sha itself also shows the body has started the reduction body endotoxin and the treatment.The Sha will come out within a minute after the Pai-Da with those who suffer from clogging blood circulation and their Sha comes faster and the color of the Sha is darker than usual.
51Some people will have red Sha first and if keep patting and slapping the color will turn dark purple or even dark masses.Some people won’t have Sha until several times’ Pai Da, which means their focus lies deeper and it can only be scraped away gradually and it also means the body endotoxin is being reduced.Some people will have Sha the first time they have Pai-Da and don’t have Sha afterwards and may have Sha again later, which means their body situation and mood are undergoing some changes.
52Cautions1Take shelter from the wind when pattingAir-conditioner and electric fan should be turned off because the pores will open during Pai-Da which might make you catch cold.2Remember to have enough water after Pai-DaDrinking a cup of water before and after Pai-Da could supply the consumed water during the exercise. It will also prevent fatigue and accelerate metabolism.3Bathing after Pai-DaTake bath three hours after Pai-Da with warm water.4Treat skin diseases with Pai-DaUse all fingers and the whole palm when slapping a large area of skin, such as the front of the knees. For skin diseases like psoriasis, pat with power for longer time.Do not use Pai-Da to treat trauma or festering wounds.5Treat diabetes mellitus, varicosity and edema of the lower limbsFor patients of diabetes mellitus, patting should be light and slow because their skin and vessels are weak and fragile. For patients with varicosity and edema of the lower limbs, it is better for them to pat from the bottom to top gently, so as to accelerate the blood circulation.
53Patients Forbidden to be Treated by Pai-Da 1 patients suffering from diseases which will very likely cause bleeding, such as decrease of platelet, leukemia, allergic purple plague and the like;2 pregnant women;3 patients suffering from serious diabetes or skin trauma, and those with apparent exudations or festers;4 patients suffering from coma, acute wounds, serious infection, fresh bone-fracture and recent sprains;5 patients with unexplainable lumps and malignant tumors;6 patients allergic to pains;7 patients with other diseases that have been forbidden by doctors to be treated with patting.
