So to slap is literally "to give oneself the palm"?

My conjecture (not of any authority) is that to slap someone else would be "Eu te dau palme."

(eu) îți dau palme or (eu) îți dau o palmă. "îi dau palme/o palmă" for third person (sg)

A previous phrase on DL was 'Eu mă spăl pe păr'. Why is it 'îmi' here, and not 'mă'?

FYI - Google translates this sentence as "I clap!"
