Tapping to Purge Lymph Nodes
Luohan Patting is a Qigong technique that involves patting or tapping specific parts of the body with the palms of the hands in a rhythmic and gentle manner. This practice is believed to have a range of health benefits, including purging, tonifying, and healing the body’s tissues and organs.
Purging refers to the process of removing toxins and other harmful substances from the body. In Qigong, it is believed that patting the body helps to stimulate the lymphatic system, which plays a crucial role in the immune system’s functioning. By tapping on specific areas of the body, such as the chest, abdomen, and back, the lymphatic system is activated, helping to flush out toxins and other waste products from the body.
Tonifying, on the other hand, refers to the process of strengthening and nourishing the body’s tissues and organs. By patting on specific points, the Qigong practitioner is believed to be stimulating the flow of Qi or life energy in the body, which can help to tonify the organs and tissues, improving their functioning and overall health.
Luohan Patting is also believed to have a healing effect on the body’s tissues and organs. By stimulating the flow of Qi and increasing blood circulation to the areas being tapped, the body’s natural healing mechanisms are activated, helping to repair damaged tissues and promote overall healing.
