Slapping therapy is an alternative medical technique that has gained some prominence over the last few years. Perhaps that’s because, unlike other fantastical beliefs, slapping therapy — otherwise known as “paida lajin” — involves self-flagellation to the point of bruising, often over the majority of your body.

Yes, you hit yourself until it hurts.

It doesn’t take a doctor to see why that might be something of an issue medically.

“I’d like to prescribe 20ccs of please stop hitting yourself it’s killing you

The other reason slapping therapy has risen to light is because the person who invented it claims that it can cure anything. He says that you can go off all medicines, leave your worries behind, and slap your way to good health!

People believe him. They stop taking their medicine.

Some of them have died.

From the Paida Lajin website. It is apparently “significantly effective for all diseases”. Right
