husband and I were in the midst of packing to go
on a trip to Beckley, West Virginia in our motor
home. There, I would see my roommate from nurse's
training 39 years prior. Both our Michigan, and
National ESCAPEES (retirement age folks) RV Club
Rallys were scheduled for the next 10 days. We
were on staff, but had no desire to go anywhere as
we joined the nation in shock and grief.
I was a
basket case, STRESS causing severe bladder pain
due to the Interstitial Cystitis (IC) I'd had for
almost twenty years. The pain was so bad it felt
like the back pains I'd felt during delivery of my
children. Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) along with
the Interstitial Cystitis had been a vicious cycle
for me causing severe SLEEP DEPRIVATION since
working full time as an R.N. in a long term care
facility, there were a few years when I'd get up
between six and twelve times at night to empty my
bladder of as little as a tablespoon. Sometimes
I'd have to sit and WAIT for ten minutes for my
bladder to actually FEEL EMPTY so I could TRY to
sleep. A time in my life when I lived with

screamed: STAY HOME, as we left for our R.V.
Rallys first in Michigan, then in W.Virginia. I
hated leaving our daughter and her children; we
were all uncertain about what further attacks
there might be on our nation. Remember, all planes
had been grounded so mail service was interrupted.
The delivery of food supplement packets I'd
received by mail every month for six years, was
uncertain. I had relied on this LIFEPAK to
alleviate my bladder pain. What if I couldn't get
it, or the ingredients were no longer available?
Fast Forward to Beckley, W. Va. October
In the Indoor Market of this
National Escapees Rally there were booths for
various businesses. One booth held The Chi Machine
and Far Infrared Hothouse Dome from HTE.
I watched as people got down onto the carpeted
surface, placed their ankles on The Chi Machine
and lay on their backs as it oscillated side to
side. Their bodies jiggled sort of like when a
fish swims. They also demo'd the Far Infrared
Hothouse placing the dome, the source of the far
Infrared heat, over backs, shoulders
or arms, as requested by each person.
was my turn, I asked them to place this Hothouse
dome arched over my bladder, while my ankles were
on The Chi Machine. They set the timer for
AMAZEMENT, MY BLADDER PAIN WAS GONE!!! In FOUR
MINUTES!!! I noticed that my bladder even emptied
like normal - I didn't have to sit and wait!
thought "Well, this is wonderful, I wonder how
long this will last." I went back to that booth
the next three mornings, they gave me FOUR MINUTES
on both the Chi Machine and FIR Hothouse dome.
Every day my bladder felt better, emptied
normally, and I was PAIN FREE! The second day I
told my husband "This is definitely HELPING my
bladder!" I was SO RELIEVED! I had been UPTIGHT
for so long, I noticed that all of a sudden, I
could TAKE A DEEP BREATH - the Chi Machine and
Hothouse dome had not only ALLEVIATED ALL MY PAIN,
but had also caused me to RELAX!
machines were non-invasive, and NOT prescription
drugs, which I avoided. My reason for avoiding Rx
medications? My mother died at the very young age
of 57 while taking NINETEEN DIFFERENT PRESCRIPTION
MEDICATIONS. She was chronically ill. as a result
I took responsibility often for our household and
my 3 younger siblings. As an adult, I vowed to
find a better way for the IC and RLS.
fourth morning of the rally, I purchased both the
Chi Machine and FIR Hothouse Dome. I didn't even
understand how they worked yet. I just knew THEY
DID! My thinking was that they would be IN MY
HOME, PAID FOR, then I wouldn't have to ask a
doctor's permission, nor get in my car and DRIVE
TO an appointment. I could use them WHENEVER I
Fast forward to November, 2004
I've been using both The Chi
Machine and Hothouse dome morning and night, since
receiving them in October, 2001. In the morning it
revs me up; at bedtime it relaxes me, and I fall
asleep sometimes while using them! I even took
them along in our 23 foot class C motor home for
six week trips to both Canada and Texas. I
cushioned them with pillows, as we drove over
roads so rough I feared it would shake our motor
home to pieces! No problem!
the FIR Hothouse Dome over my chest and sinuses
when I have problems there. I can use the Far
Infrared heat any place on my body. My husband,
family members and my 82 year old friend Lucy,
love to use them both. My grandchildren ages 2, 4,
6, 9, 11, 16, and 18 ALL love the Chi
Machine! - they even compete to get to it first.
MY DIABETIC FRIEND NOW HAS HIS OWN CHI
Louis age 65 years old is
diabetic and suffers from pain in his feet. He's
also had surgery on his lower and mid back. For
two years after I got my machines, he came to my
house on many occasions to use them. The first
time he tried my Chi Machine he said it stopped
the pain in his feet for two hours (after using it
FOUR MINUTES). After 30-45 minutes with the
Hothouse Dome on his back, he reported GREAT! This
summer he bought his own Chi Machine because it
helps his feet so much.
