According to traditional Chinese Medicine there is an energy distribution grid which interconnects all parts of the body at a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. They call it the meridian system whichcan be compared to the cardiovascular system but is independent of it. Unlike veins and arteries they are invisible to the eye but Chinese doctors have an intimate knowledge of this subtle anatomy and associated pathologies. They claim that too much Yin or Yang energy can cause congestion in the grid resulting in various ailments. There are many remedies Chinese traditional doctors use to unblock the meridians including acupuncture, moksha, massage and now smacking. Mr Hongchai Xiao who teaches the art of smacking asserts that most of the diseases today are caused by an over Yin environment and diet. In order to address this he teaches his students how to vigorously smack various parts of the body in order to release excess Yin energy from the grid. To get an idea of how this works check out Hongchai Xiao's video:

It’s very interesting video, David.

I go to China for business often and I always was wondering why people are smacking themselves on the shoulders, knees and behind knees. Now it’s quite understandable.

I have a book about acupressure and it helps to relieve headache and minor pains sometimes. Did not have a good experience with acupuncture though. Practitioner plugged needles into electric machine and for 10 minutes I felt being electrocuted. LOL

Definitely got to try this technique.

Thank you for sharing!

Glad it appeals to you gsonik65. I tried it out this morning and felt great all day perhaps a placebo but feel like experimenting with it more. It has also helped consolidate my understanding of the yin/yang principle. Why smacking/slapping and stretching one's legs would cause the release of yin energy is hard one to fathom but if it works for people then why not. Like fasting it is free for the masses opposed to acupuncture which is not and even the electronic version is quite costly and you still have to know what you are doing. I forgot to mention that according to the Chinese paradigm fasting is a Yang activity.

Part of the feeling good after "smacking/slapping" is due to the release of Irisin, a substance with similar effect as Endorphin. Thus yin may be at least partly irisin..

Exercise and diet are of equal importance in maintaining good health. Thus if Yin is exercise related and Yang is diet related the ancient Chinese wisdom is vindicated.

Thank you Doctor I thought you would have something interesting to add. Actually according to the Chinese system, Irisin would be yang as it is the hormone which dissipates the state of yin and exercising would also be yang.
