Relaxation and energy.
"The trouble I had been having
with my shoulders disappeared soon after I began
using my machine. I use it every night before I go
to bed. It totally relaxes me, helping me forget all
the tension and troubles of the day, and get a good
nights sleep. My energy levels have really improved
since using the Chi machine when I get in from work.
The drop in energy I used to get after lunch and
after my evening meal has completely disappeared and
my ten-minute stroll to and from work has now become
an energetic march!" - Mrs C.O., North
Perseverance and reduced time
"I damaged the ligaments of
the joint between my last lumbar vertebra and the
sacrum. Fluid collected at the site of the injury.
I was told that any twisting of my back could make
the damage worse and the fluid would press on the
sciatic nerve, resulting in a very sharp pain down
I stopped using the Chi
Machine as I erroneously thought that it would
cause trouble. After two weeks, I rang you to be
told that it would disperse the fluid. So, as you
suggested, I reduced the time spent on it to one
minute only and then gradually increased the time.
I am now using it three times a day, five minutes
Within days, the fluid
had dispersed and the ligaments started to heal.
Three weeks later I can report that my back feels
normal and no sciatic pain." - J.N. Plymouth,

Relief and relaxation.
"The Chi Machine has great
benefits in relaxation and this goes a long way to
helping my well-being and relief from the pain of
poly arthritis." - J. H., Dip

Health Maintenance, rejuvenation,
stress management and well being.
"I have used The Chi Machine
for therapeutic and health maintaining purposes.
It helps physical recovery and can contribute to
rejuvenation, it also is good in stress management
both mental and physical, and last but not least
it gives one a sense of physical and mental well
being." - J. W., Wirral,
"For the first 3 weeks I used
The Chi Machine for 2/3 minutes 4 times a day; now
I use it for 5 minutes twice a day. The most
noticeable changes are that I am now able to raise
my arms over my head - something I haven't been
able to do for a few years. I also now no longer
suffer from diarrhea which was an ongoing
complaint of mine. Another factor is that my
arthritic backache is not so severe, and I hope
that with continued use it will become even
easier." - J.T. Clwyd,
Most uncomfortable symptoms
"I have been using the Chi
Machine on a regular basis for almost 4 months.
For the first three months, I used it twice a day.
I have Multiple Sclerosis, a condition which for
me, causes fatigue, muscle stiffness, weakness and
spasm, as well as loss of balance and bladder
problems. On first using the Chi Machine I noticed
a feeling of well-being - a vibrancy and sense of
'flow' in my body, that I hadn't experienced for
some time. Very soon, the stiffness in my legs
that lead to spasms during the night, was reduced
and my nights became more restful.
It was noticed when I
attended physiotherapy, that the muscle tone in my
legs had improved considerably, especially
immediately following a session on the machine.
Mostly, prior to the Chi Machine, I suffered icy
cold feet and patchy hot and cold areas in my
knees, thighs and buttocks. A more even
distribution of body temperature has occurred
since using the Machine. Improved bladder function
is also a welcome benefit.
Circumstances have made
it difficult to manage two sessions a day
recently. Co-incidence or otherwise, the stiffness
in my legs has increased and fatigue is recurring,
although humidity and climatic conditions can
affect this. Overall, I feel that initially the
use of the Chi Machine improved my most
uncomfortable symptoms. At all times, use of the
machine has been and is a relaxing and pleasurable
experience that gives me a feeling of well-being."

Buying a mobility
scooter .. changed my life, giving me back my
independence ... Another "life-changing" purchase
I have made is BUYING A CHI MACHINE. It is a
remarkable machine, and helps me enormously in
combating the daily fatigue I still live with at
present. It energizes and revitalizes me, as well
as giving my legs a rest, a mini massage,
improving circulation, oxygenating my blood and
being deeply relaxing. And the best thing is once
you have invested in the machine, it is yours to
use as much or as little as you like for life, as
therapies go, that makes it extremely cost
This little machine is
worth it's weight in gold to me. When I get
overwhelmed by fatigue, I simply lie down, breath,
and enjoy. It even lowers the tone in my legs
(free physio). When it switches itself off, you
tingle and can really feel the Chi
(Energy) and flowing around your body and you just
lie there for a few more minutes enjoy it all in a
deeply relaxed state.
The best thing about the
Chi Machine is that is stops my leg spasms which
can keep me awake a night. When my leg is jumping
about and keeping me awake I go on the Chi
machine, relax, and 20 minutes later, I get back
into bed and drift off to sleep. It is also
effective in stopping my brain from working
overtime, and releasing stress, so enabling me to
get a good nights restful sleep when I'd otherwise
be tossing and turning all night." - Sylvie

M.E./CFS - Impressive.
"My husband has built up to 10
minutes 4 times a day over the past week & we
cannot believe the difference in him. However we
are not stupid, we know there is no cure for
M.E./CFS but this machine is certainly helping
even in just a week. Today we went to see the
Osteopath and he also was impressed. Malcolm has
suffered with this for the past 7 years and he has
been having treatment from the Osteopath for the
past 2 years to improve the elimination of toxins
from his lymph.". - A.K., Lancs.
M.E. - A big difference, the
benefits of aerobic exercise.
"I have had my Sun Ancon Chi
Machine for about a year, and it has helped me
recover from chronic illness. I developed M.E. in
1996. I became so ill I was virtually housebound
for over a year, at times having to crawl to the
bathroom on my hands and knees. I had many
symptoms, from constant headaches and sore throats
to digestive problems and joint and muscle pain,
and worst of all very little mental or physical
capacity to do anything. For months I could not
even watch TV, and I was unable to read properly
for perhaps 2 years. Over the years I tried many
different treatments, including nutritional and
herbal approaches as well as physical therapies
such as shiatsu and yoga. These all helped my
health to gradually improve, but I was still
nowhere near well enough to work.
I became interested in
lymphatic drainage as a result of studying the
research into ME. In particular I read a book
called "The Back and Beyond" by Dr. Paul Sherwood,
which suggested that treating the lymphatic system
could aid recovery. This made a lot of sense to me
and eventually I tried lymphatic drainage massage
with a massage therapist. I found this very
beneficial and it increased my energy a lot, but
was expensive and I could not afford to have it as
often as I would like.
It was then that I
heard about the Sun Ancon Chi Machine. I was lucky
enough to be able to have a go on a Chi Machine at
a friend's house and I realized immediately that
this was a powerful treatment. When I read about
it I realized that this could replace the
massages, not only that but it would be available
at home for me to use every day, and other members
of the family could also benefit. So although it
was a lot of money to spend, it seemed like a
gamble worth taking, especially if it could help
me improve and get closer to my goal of being able
to work again.
I had to begin gradually
like most people with M.E. and build up slowly
from one minute at a time on the machine. I was
careful to follow the instructions about drinking
water before and after. Within a short time I
began to feel the benefit of using The Chi
Machine, as my energy levels improved, I finally
lost the last of the "brain fog" which had plagued
me for years, and all my remaining symptoms
lessened. I still use the machine every day and I
am convinced it has been a major factor in my
continuing improvement - I notice the difference
if I am unable to use it for a few days. I also
find I can use the machine for a few minutes at
times when I am feeling a bit sluggish or having
trouble waking - it is like having been for a
brisk walk but without the effort and time
involved. It is also a great de-stresser.
The beauty of The Chi
Machine is that it increases exercise capacity and
energy, even when you are unable to exercise
properly yourself. For example if I am suffering
from a virus and not well enough to do my normal
activities, I can still go on the Chi Machine. I
am convinced it has improved my recovery time when
I do occasionally get a cold etc. This makes it
ideal for people with M.E. who desperately need
the benefits of exercise, but are either
physically unable to, or cannot do so without
suffering problems afterwards. I don't know if it
can help everyone with M.E. as much as it has
helped me. (Now that would be a fascinating
research project). For me however, it has been a
vital piece of the jigsaw which I needed to get
well, and it is impossible to express in words the
difference this has made to my life." - Maggie Stern,

The Sun Ancon Chi
Machine maintains health
through passive aerobic exercise.
Flexibiilty, discomfort removed,
"I borrowed the Chi 'Aerobic
exerciser' from the 'Touch for Health Center' for
a week. I was suffering from very painful
chilblains and by the end of the week they had
virtually cleared and were no longer causing
discomfort. I decided to buy a machine on the
strength of this and my husband and I are both
very impressed by the benefit we are getting. I go
to Yoga classes and I now find the movements very
much easier. My back always used to hurt after I
had been gardening and any discomfort I have, goes
away. My husband is very impressed and says his
golf is much improved after using the exerciser.
We are both sleeping better." - Tina C.,

Mobility and energy increase, pain
removal, sounder sleep.
"We purchased a Sun Ancon Chi
Machine aerobic exerciser a month ago. I really
enjoy using it and a very painful knee is feeling
much more comfortable and I am walking more
normally. I expect this improvement to continue. I
certainly feel more energetic and am sleeping much
better. It is nice to know I can maintain my good
health by using the Chi Machine every day. I am
now up to six minutes three times daily and I look
forward to using it, especially when I am tired."

Gas, Bloating, Energy, Detox.
"On March 15th, I remember the
date because it was my birthday, I had a very
severe pain in my abdomen, with gas and bloating,
so bad that I couldn't bear to wear clothing and
almost fainted with the pain. I continued to have
bouts like this for several weeks. I visited my
doctor and the pills he gave me didn't deem to
help. He suggested I might need to investigate
further. My friend June, suggested I try her
aerobic exerciser. After only one session, I felt
that something moved, I had a big evacuation and
since then have had no pain or discomfort. I also
felt it gave me more energy. I am going to borrow
a machine for a week and I expect I will end up
buying one for myself." - Sussex, UK.
No more sleeping pills.
"Since using the chi machine
for ten days, my husband has not used anymore
sleeping pills." - Lia Beldam,
"My little grandson called
Luke, who is now 12 years old, is severely
physically and mentally handicapped. He just loves
using the Chi Machine and lies quietly and
happily, (which is very unusual for him), whilst
his legs are moving from side to side. He has very
bad circulation problems and we are sure this is
going to help him." - Sussex, UK.
Return of energy.
"Having been taking drugs for
some time for high blood pressure, I have been
rather delighted at the return of energy that I
have enjoyed since starting to use the machine. I
am now on three 4 minute sessions per day." -
Systemic Lupus - Pain Relief,
Spinal Alignment, Relaxation, Mobility.
"This very unique Chi Machine
has changed the quality of my life so that I am
truly in awe. I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus
or SLE over 10 years ago and have sought to
restore my health from all the medical profession
has to offer. When you came to my home, I
discussed with my doctor what could be done to
help me with my muscle, joint and all over body
pain. I knew that medicine could be a problem and
always wanted alternatives.
I find that the motion
of the machine feels similar to an all over body
massage. I think it increases my blood circulation
that in turn gives me some pain relief. The pain
seems to be reduced to the point that it is now
manageable. I truly enjoy the relaxation and find
the feeling after the machine shuts off very
pleasant. It seems to align my spine and I have
also noticed some decrease in my abdomen. It has
also helped with my fluid retention so that I have
lost a few pounds. Also, I have noticed that I
have more energy. I am monitoring my improvement
very closely and I intend to keep you posted on
the benefits of this wonderful therapy.
One of the most exciting
things that The Chi Machine has done for me is
that I can now get up and down. About a year ago I
lost so much mobility I could no longer get up and
down. If I lowered to a squatting position my legs
could not push me back up. After one week, using
the machine several times each day, I noticed I
could get up and down better and I soon discovered
I could do several knee bends without stopping." -
