and Medical Advice:
Q: I am also
wondering how much discomfort can be expected for
someone with severe pain?
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
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: 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 having chemotherapy?
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
Q2: My local Complementary Cancer Care
center have asked about the time sessions with
regard to their clients using the Chi Machine.
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
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.

weeks the Sun Ancon Chi Machine could be used.
Wait 8 weeks after breast implants.

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

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
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

minutes per session, depending on the individual's
Pregnancy and Post
Pregnancy - Post
I have used the Chi Machine
with pregnant health professionals, and is great for
well-being and supporting getting back to shape.
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
3) Use it after the first 6
weeks of pregnancy. Flinders
University's Clinical Trials
indicates a significant drop in fluids in the
lymphatic system using The Chi Machine.
4) Please consult your
physician for advice if you have any concerns
about using it.
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
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 one day?
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 the machine?
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.
