Always wait one hour after eating
before using the Chi Machine. Many people prefer to
use it before breakfast (best time of day to
use) and again at night to assist restful sleep and to
promote natural healing and rejuvenation. If the Chi
Machine energizes you too much, simply use it an hour
or two before going to bed as opposed to directly
before climbing into bed.
Please use a room where you won't be disturbed
- no phone, NO watching TV at the same time,
no kids (soft music is ok).
Place the Chi Machine on a solid surface. A
hard floor with a carpet is best. For people
confined to bed, a hard board placed underneath the
patient may be used. A very firm mattress is also
You MUST drink
water after using the machine, to assist the
lymph system in flushing out toxicity.
Place machine on floor (handle side
away from you) and plug in. Feet should hang
past the ankle rests just enough so they will move
gently back and forth once machine is turned on. If
feet knock together, turn feet slightly outwards
like a ballet dancer.
Let your arms relax loosely at your sides,
palms down. Do not use a pillow under your head,
as this hinders the machine's motion from
reaching your head. People with severe knee problems
may need to place a rolled towel or small cushion
under their knees, although it's best not to do so
Begin with 4-6 minutes, twice a day
(less if you have any major health problems).
Increase GRADUALLY to 15 to 20 minutes twice a day.
One minute once a day, is quite enough for someone
in poor health or a lot of pain. This can slowly be
increased as improvement is achieved.
Unless you are extremely fit, DO NOT begin at 15-20 minutes
or you may feel nauseous or weak legged or have
aches and pains. NEVER
exceed 20 minutes per session as this
will detox the body too quickly in some people and
cause imbalance in others. Two daily 15 minute
sessions is better.
Do not expect 'miracles' overnight, or after
only 2 or 3 sessions. If any discomfort is
experienced, simply reduce time limit for
as long as you need to before adding minutes again,
Once timer is set, the ankle rest will
begin to move back and forth carrying your feet from
side to side. This movement will carry up through
your legs and torso, and throughout your entire
body, causing your body to move just like a goldfish
swimming in water. As it does, your job is to close
your eyes, RELAX and 'surrender' as much as
possible. Slow, deep, breaths are recommended
thereby allowing maximum oxygenation and relaxation.
Important - when the machine stops,
lay still for at least three minutes. Do NOT jump
up. This time is when the movement of healing
energy is felt circulating throughout the body. 40%
of the therapeutic effect occurs while the machine
is moving, and 60% when it stops.
After the timer stops, continue lying down
with your eyes closed, continue to relax, and enjoy
the 'tingling'. This 'rest period' enables
you to absorb and process the chi energy, cell
oxygenation, healing and detoxification most
Following the 'rest period', remove
your feet from the ankle cradle and bend your knees
into a 45 degree angle with your feet flat on the
floor. Take a deep breath and lower your knees to
one side as low as is comfortable and swing your
arms to the opposite side, whilst you breath out.
Slowly return your knees to the upright position
whilst inhaling. Repeat this movement to the
opposite side and back, breathing as before. Repeat
this exercise a few times and then gently sit up.
Conclude the session with a glass of
water to aid the removal of circulatory and
metabolic waste materials from the body (by way of
urine and feces).
If you feel dizzy at all, it is due to
accumulated toxicity being released from tissues
in your body. The dizziness will dissipate
quickly. If you develop rashes or feel aches or
pains around old wounds this is the oxygenation
detoxifying and healing your body - adjust
your time limit to a lesser amount during your next
session. Some people experience this medically
documented experience known as a healing
crisis or 'Herxheimer Reaction'
which is simply your body appearing to be unwell as
it in fact takes a huge fast turn towards becoming
healthy and well.
When can I NOT use
the Chi Machine?
- Within three months of post surgery or bone
- If suffering from open wounds or infection.
- Not advisable during 1st trimester or last month
- If you have an old pacemaker.
- If you suffer from epilepsy. Be cautious, use only
- If you have serious heart disease (unable to
It is known that many people with pacemakers and epilepsy
use the Chi Machine, but it is their prerogative and
used under supervision with a family member present.
Time should also be set at just 1-2 minutes to
begin, then very slowly increased, never exceeding
10 minutes maximum.
When using the Chi machine with young children,
5-10 mins is enough.
