Arthritis - Arthritis Testimonials
Q: I am also wondering how much discomfort can be expected for someone with severe arthritis?
A: How much discomfort can be expected for someone with severe arthritis who uses the machine is extremely difficult to comment on as bodies vary greatly. Noticeable reduction in pain levels for osteoarthritis sufferers is often the case using the machine twice daily as a mainstay treatment.

Q: I have just had an Arthroscopy on one of my knees and I am disappointed that I will not be able to use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine for 3 months following the surgery. I would be grateful for advice as to whether it is in order to use the Chi Machine and if so, for how long and how many times a day. 
A: My belief is that after one month you should be OK to use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine providing you place 1 or 2 pillows under your knees when using the machine.

Cancer - Prostate Cancer Testimonials
Q1: A client who is being treated with chemotherapy for breast cancer is doing well (a count down from 500 to 50) and the doctors are pleased. Do you think the Sun Ancon Chi Machine would be okay to use whilst having chemotherapy for cancer?
A1: Cancer does not like oxygen. So increase your usage to 3 times per day. The Sun Ancon Chi Machine is not a machine that fixes problems but it is definitely a support for the body as a relief from the stress and the side effects of the condition and chemo-treatment.

Q2: I have just sold a machine to my local Complementary Cancer Care center and they have asked about the conditions with regard to their clients using the Chi Machine.
A2: Cancer patients can use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine provided they use it for very low levels of time. Start at 1 or 2 minutes and increase by 1 minute every 2 weeks. Stop at any level if pain arrives and reduce to the previous level.


Chronic Back Pain - Back Pain Testimonials
Q: Husband of a patient who is happily using her Sun Ancon Chi Machine, he has suffered chronic back pain for many years (he is a dairy farmer) and the last specialists he saw advised him that the offending vertebrae were finally fusing, and once fused should give him less discomfort. He would like to use the machine, but worries that it might 'undo' the fusion. I suggested that once fused, the vertebrae would simply act as a single unit with the oscillation wave flowing above and below the fused bones, and therefore, there would be no contra-indication. But what would happen if the vertebrae were only partially fused? I have already told him that he should just try the machine for 1 minute at a time, and slowly build up within his comfort zone, but quite rightly, he would prefer advice from a back specialist.
A: Natural bony fusion is the strongest fusion possible. Even partial fusion is extremely strong and there is no possible way the Sun Ancon Chi Machine could cause a bony separation or 'undo' the fusion process. Start at 1 minute at least twice per day and increase the time by 1 minute per week. The Sun Ancon Chi Machine is pure aerobic activity and is gentler on the body than walking.

Cosmetic Surgery: Eyelids and Breast Implants.
Q: I have a client who has recently undergone cosmetic surgery for their upper and lower eyelids and would like to know how soon they can resume using their Sun Ancon Chi Machine.
A: After healing, probably about 4 to 6 weeks the Sun Ancon Chi Machine could be used. Wait 8 weeks after breast implants.

Crohn's Disease and Endometriosis.
Q: I would appreciate your advice with regard to adhesions and old internal scar tissue. Crohn's Disease and endometriosis are two ultimately very delicate and serious conditions in this respect. Personally, I come from an osteoporosis prone family. I've had two scars, and I have suffered a degree of discomfort. I would loathe the idea of a hip replacement. How will the massager help me in the long term? Three weeks into using the Sun Ancon Chi Machine my discomfort grew. 
A: Crohn's Disease and endometriosis are two ultimately very delicate and serious conditions in this respect. The vibrating movements of the machine can assist in decongesting the metabolic waste matter within cellular tissue. You must persist with the machine on a daily basis to ease the pain and bring about better internal body function. However, if pain persists, please stop  using the machine. Start slowly for 1-2 minutes per session (three times daily). Begin this pattern for two weeks until you feel comfortable and gradually build up the time by adding a minute per week until you reach a maximum of ten minutes.

Digestive Function.
Q: Can the Sun Ancon help digestive functions of some people? 
A: Of course, start at 1 minute and increase time very slowly, say 1 minute per session every 2 weeks to a maximum of 10 minutes per session.|

Q: How can the Sun Ancon Chi Machine help someone with dystrophy?
A: A distributor found good results with a lady that has reflex sympathetic dystrophy, pain in the leg and foot, atrophy of the muscles in the leg, and numbness in other parts. After a month or so of using the machine, she has not had to take any pain killers at night - something she has needed to do for some years. People with reflex sympathetic dystrophy need to start using the Chi machine at a 30 second time frame initially if the condition is marked. They can increase their time frame in 30 second units weekly initially. They may use the machine 4 to 6 times per day.


Q: Can a person with epilepsy use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine? Why is it stated as a contraindications?
A: The machine can be used for epileptic patients. The reason that it has been stated that epilepsy is a contraindication is that some person may see fit to sue the company if they personally, or a family member who was in the process of using the machine had a fit at that time. My personal belief is that the machine is very soothing and calming of the nervous system and the outcomes for an epileptic patient would indeed be positive. It is important that an epileptic patient is supervised when using the machine as a precautionary measure in case they incidentally had a fit while using the machine.

Herxheimer Reaction - Healing Crisis

Q: Can someone with a pacemaker use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine, and if so, what are the boundaries of use?
A: Use the machine at low time levels, starting at 1 minute daily for one week , then add one minute each week to a maximum of 10 minutes or be governed by comfort levels at lower time periods.

Phlebitis and Varicose Veins.
Q: A client has varicose veins, phlebitis, and water retention around the ankles and knee. How do you recommend us advising her about the Sun Ancon Chi Machine?
A: The Sun Ancon Chi Machine can assist people in all these areas. Start at very low time intervals of 1 or 2 minutes to start, then add 1 minute per week to a maximum of between 10 and 15 minutes per session, depending on the individual's comfort levels.

Pregnancy and Post Pregnancy - Post Pregnancy Benefits
Q: Can the Sun Ancon Chi Machine be used during pregnancy?
A: (1) Yes. But to preclude any problems, it should not be used by those who suffer from presentation placenta or habitual miscarriage.
(2) Suspend using it during the first trimester and during the final month before delivery.
(3) Use it after the first 6 weeks of pregnancy. Flinders University's Sun Ancon Medical Research indicates a significant drop in fluids in the lymphatic system.
(4) Please consult your physician for advice if you have any concerns about using it.

Q: What about use of the Sun Ancon Chi Machine during post pregnancy?
A: The Sun Ancon Chi Machine is most beneficial to woman right through pregnancy after the first 6 weeks of the pregnancy. Flinders University's Sun Ancon clinical trial indicates a significant drop in fluids in the lymphatic system. I have used the Chi Machine with pregnant health professionals, and is great for well-being and getting back to shape!

Shingles - Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Q: Female, aged 68, bilateral upper limb lipodystrophy, which responded well to complex decongestive lymphoedema treatment (MLD, bandaging, exercises and water therapies). She purchased a Sun Ancon Chi Machine to aid general circulation. However, she also developed shingles at this stage. This left her with considerable pain that initially was attributed to post-herpetic neuralgia and has since been diagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis. Drainage of the knee and a course of steroids has left her feeling much better, but she is loathe to use her Chi Machine as the onset of her problems seems to her to coincide with her use of it. Her doctor has heard of the machine, and agrees with me that theoretically it can only do good, but she is very unsure. Is there anything in your experience that can help us with this?
A: The outbreak of shingles and using the machine was purely a coincidence I believe. This woman needs to get back and use the machine as soon as possible.

Q: How can the Sun Ancon Chi Machine help my client who suffers from scleroderma?
A: Yes, one minute per session and twice daily. Of course, the Sun Ancon Chi Machine will assist in improved circulation.


Q: I have a client who has scoliosis. How will the Sun Ancon Chi Machine help the side effects?
A: The Sun Ancon Chi Machine will not correct an idiopathic scoliosis such as the girl has, or any other type of scoliosis. Will the Sun Ancon Chi Machine benefit a person with such a condition? YES! The stretch/relax, stretch/relax action on the spinal muscles will help stabilize the condition.

Spinal Injuries.
Q: Do you know of contraindications for those with spinal injuries?
A: It is not advised to use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine if a person has an acute episode of spinal pain. Wait until the condition settles down.

Spinal Rod Implants.
Q: I am researching a helpful therapy for my son. He is 19 yrs. old, injured over 2 yrs. ago, now a paraplegic at T5 level, with total paralysis below injury site. Had reconstructive surgery with rods installed running parallel with spine. Can he use chi machine, or do you have any clients with similar health problem that use the chi machine?
A: I have not heard of the Chi machine being used by any person with a similar condition and implant rods as your son. However, my belief is that with very low time frames starting from 1 minute twice a day for 2 weeks and then adding 1 minute every 2 weeks, should enhance your sons quality of life. If your son experiences any adverse reactions then stop using the machine and revert back the next day to the previous time frame that was OK.

General Surgery.
Q1: I have just had surgery. Can I use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine?
A1: No. You can not use it unless the wound is closed and healed.

Q2: An elderly client has recently had a rodent ulcer removed from her lower leg. The site has become infected and is being treated with antibiotics. If she buys a machine, when can she start?
A2: The yard-stick is that once stitches have been removed and the wound is healing well then the machine can be used. It's ALWAYS paramount that these people always start at low time levels and build their time up slowly over several weeks.

Q3: A lady to whom I have sold a machine is due to have some keyhole surgery next month for sterilization and will just be in hospital for a day. Am I correct in thinking that maybe a few days or so would be sufficient not to use the machine for such a minor operation?
A3: Minor surgery recovery - 10 days to 2 weeks should be okay for a relatively fit and well person.

Tooth Filling.
Q: I have used the Sun Anion Chi Machine for some months, but I can only use it for 2-3 min.per day. I have so much pain in my body because I am allergic to my teeth fillings with silver in them. I am taking them out one by one and have taken out 9, but I still get very sick after I have been at the dentist. Is it wise of me to use the Sun Anion Chi Machine when I get sick. My body aches and the lymph system is acing as well as the muscles and my stomach, so I understand that my body is trying to get rid of the poison. Can I use the machine even when I hurt?
A: Yes, she can use the machine but only for one or two minutes per session. She needs to drink a great deal of water each day. Using the machine 3 to 4 times per day would be very helpful.
