Q: I am also wondering how much
discomfort can be expected for someone with severe
A: How much discomfort can be expected for
someone with severe pain who uses the machine is
extremely difficult to comment on as bodies vary
greatly. Noticeable reduction in pain levels is often
the case using the machine twice daily as a mainstay
Q: I have just had surgery 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
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.
Q1: A client who is being treated with
chemotherapy 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
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.
Length of Sessions.
Q2: My local Complementary Cancer Care center
have asked about the time sessions with regard to
their clients using the Chi Machine.
A2: 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.
Q: Can the Chi Machine be used for a person
who has had spine fusion.
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.
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.
Q: Can the Sun Ancon help support digestive
A: 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 weak muscles?
A: Start using the Chi machine at a 30
second time frame initially. They can increase their
time frame in 30 second units weekly. They may use
the machine 4 to 6 times per day.
Q: Can a person with seizures use the Sun
Ancon Chi Machine? Why is it stated as a
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 the patient is supervised the entire
time when using the machine as a precautionary
Reaction - Healing Crisis
Can someone with a pacemaker use the Sun Ancon
Chi Machine, and if so, what are the boundaries of
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.
Q: Water retention around the ankles and
knee. What time do you recommend for The Chi
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
and Post Pregnancy - Post
Q: Can the Sun Ancon
Chi Machine be used during pregnancy?
1) Yes. But to preclude any problems, it
should not be used by those who are not in good
health or are at risk.
2) Suspend using it during the
first trimester and during the final month before
3) Use it after the first 6
weeks of pregnancy. Flinders
University's Medical Research
indicates a significant drop in fluids in the
lymphatic system usng The Chi Machine.
4) Please consult your
physician for advice if you have any concerns
about using it.
I have used the Chi Machine with
pregnant health professionals, and is great for
well-being and supporting getting back to shape.
Q: I have a client who has back problems.
How will the Sun Ancon Chi Machine help the side
A: The Sun Ancon Chi Machine will not
correct back problems (such as scoliosis), but will
benefit by providing support with stretch/relax,
stretch/relax action on the spinal muscles to help
stabilize and temporarily relieve muscle pain.
Q: I have just had surgery. Can I use my Sun
Ancon Chi Machine?
A: No. You can not use it unless the wound is
closed and healed, 6-8 weeks. 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.
Q: What about minor surgery, outpatient after
A: Minor surgery recovery - 10 days to 2
weeks should be okay for a relatively fit and well
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 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
A: Yes, you can use the machine but
only for one or two minutes per session. Be sure to
drink plenty of water each day. Using the machine 2
to 3 times per day would be very helpful.
