The Paida practice can be done at any time of the day, and can be customized according to one’s habits whether it is early in the morning, the evening or at noon. There is no fixed schedule or time length for the Paida practice because people could be suffering from different physical conditions and they could also have differing Paida intensities. Therefore the duration of the Paida practice differs from one person to another. However, children, the very aged and the very weak should conduct Paida under close supervision, while following the required sequence.
Regarding health care, PaidaLajin practitioners advise that people slap general cases from head to the foot for fifteen minutes minimum at a time, and at least one time or twice a day. The areas that practitioners insist on are the head, shoulders, armpits, knees, and elbows. In sub-health cases, one is advised to pat and slap the affected areas for a longer time, besides the parts above of the body.
The timing of the Paida can, however, be adjusted as a person’s pain gets relieved and the symptoms reduce.
