Lymph Drainage for Lymphoedema
using the Sun Ancon Chi Machine.
Personal Experiences.

Lymphoedema is a drainage problem, where lymph, the debris of the immune system, accumulates in an arm or leg. The lymphatic system which carries this fluid, can become blocked when it's been damaged by radiotherapy or when lymph nodes have been removed during invasive procedures.

Treatment of Venous Oedema
using the Chi Machine.

Professor Neil Piller one of the top ten leading world lymphedema specialists not only conducted extensive medical research as to the effects of the Sun Ancon Chi Machine on Secondary Lymphoedema and Venous Oedema patients, he also concluded that the Sun Ancon Chi Machine is the most effective method of lymph drainage in the world.

Secondary Lymphoedema & Venous Oedema.

The Sun Ancon Chi Machine must be used on a consistent daily basis for the accumulated lymph to remain drained. The longer the period of use, the greater and more prolonged the effects for the user.

15-20 minutes, once or twice each day, is recommended use. Begin at 4-6 minutes and slowly add minutes, there is no hurry. No need to exceed 20 minutes per session. Drink water after each session to flush out the excess lymph fluid and toxins.

A major contributing factor to our health and well being.
"Lynn and I wanted to drop you a line to let you know just how much we appreciate our chi exerciser. Lynn is now up to 6 minutes 2 times a day, She is enjoying an increase in range of motion as well as improved energy throughout the day.

Being Chiropractic Doctors, we have spent many thousands of dollars researching health-related equipment. The Chi Machine qualifies as one of the most important modalities that we have tested over the past 10 years. In our opinions, the reason for this is that it mobilizes the lymphatic drainage of the body. This is critically important, as Dr. Gaston Naessens from France has shown that in cancer and other chronic degenerative illnesses, the lymphatic system becomes all clogged up like gelatin instead of freely flowing.

Given our training in Applied Kinesiology and my current disability of 5 years from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivities and Immune Dysfunction secondary to chemical injury, we have been acutely aware of my need for improved lymphatic function. In fact, Lynn and I were spending about I hour a day using AK methods and a modification of the Vawter massage technique from Europe just to keep my lymphatic drainage working.

Since the arrival of the Sun Ancon Chi Machine, I have been using it one to two times a day. Amazingly, during this time, my lymphatic drainage has continued to work with no other treatment by Lynn or myself. Needless to say, I have been thinking and feeling better. It has already been a major contributing factor to our health and well being." - John and Lynn Buckler - Chiropractors.

A revelation.
"The Chi Machine has been a revelation to me. I have been having two fifteen-minute sessions each day for around two months. In that time I have lost unexpected weight from both my hips and waist and noticed the rest of my body more toned. The benefits of using a machine were explained to me by my reflexologist who had noticed I was suffering from oedema in spite of eating healthy foods and taking regular, if limited, exercise. So I borrowed a Sun Ancon and then quickly bought my own because I could immediately see the difference it made. I even hired a machine when I went to Canada because I could not bear the thought of being away from it for two weeks." - Alison Davey, N. Yorkshire, UK, April 10th 2005

Much of the fluid build-up is eliminated.
"As a massage therapist, I have had the opportunity to observe the benefits that the Sun Ancon Chi Machine has provided for others. One of my clients is only able to get around in a wheelchair. Consequently, she has problems with lymphedema. However, after just a couple of treatments, I have witnessed the significant reduction in the size of her ankles, and of course, the relief of the pressure caused by the lymph build up. The Sun Ancon gets the lymph moving, kick-starts the kidneys so that the urinary system is much more fluid than usual. Consequently much of the fluid build-up is eliminated and she feels much lighter after the treatment. Her bowels also work better after the Sun Ancon treatments." - Carol Stadelmann, Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher, VIC, Australia.

Total relaxation.
"Five and a half years ago I got to the point where I needed an electric scooter around the house to get cooking and laundry done. Prior to that my husband was doing the grocery shopping for about six years.

I bought the Chi Machine in June of this year - after trying it in Dr. Liptonís office. The pain in my hands, that I had been taking 2 Aleve for each day, disappeared after about three days on the machine for 5 minutes twice a day. The swelling in my ankles started going down too. Now, about after 4 1/2 months of using the Chi Machine twice a day for 15 minutes, I can stand up long enough to brush my teeth. I also use a walker now for short distances. 

I love the Chi Machine for what it has done for me and the feeling of total relaxation it gives me. I am hoping that with continued use it will make my legs even stronger 

A nice side benefit is that I have lost 6 pounds and my husband about 10."

New lease on life.
"Six years ago I became unwell and over time I gained twenty-five kilos of fluid which has caused toxin build-up and other problems. Three months ago I was depressed and desperate, as everything I had tried for the pain and swelling had failed. I was in complete agony with my back and legs to the point where I could not stand for more than twenty minutes or walk for more than ten. Each morning it would take me about two hours to get mobile, and I would constantly fall asleep if I sat down for long.

Having always been an active person who loved tennis and dancing, and having been in the entertainment profession all my life, I found it absolutely heartbreaking not to be able to pursue these activities any longer, not carry out normal duties, and my work was taking a dramatic dive as well, as I could no longer handle the commitments.

Thanks to a kind and caring neighbor, I obtained a Sun Ancon Chi Machine. I can't believe the improvement in two months. I no longer wake up with blinding headaches and feel so full of energy. I can now stand for a lot longer, and in fact I am on my feet for hours at a time, and two weeks ago I was able to visit a local market and managed to walk for an hour without stopping to rest. Now I am able to do my own shopping again in one hit and do all my own house cleaning in one day as I used to. I no longer fall asleep when I sit down, and am back working in my profession two or three nights per week. The best news is though, I have lost two kilos in fluid, already.

The best way to describe my Sun Ancon machine is that it is like a battery charger for the body, and using it for fifteen minutes two or three times a day suits me fine. I couldn't be happier, it's given me a new lease of life." - C.L. Goodall, Australia.

Clinical trials.

Clinical Trials - Flinders University, Australia.

The Sun Ancon Chi Machine dramatically reduces manual lymphatic drainage thereby making life so much easier and of course it can be done in the comfort of home.

Life is Easier since Flinders Clinical Trial.
"I have had lymphoedema in both legs for about 40 years brought about after several abdominal operations. This condition has gradually made walking difficult and restricted my activities. I applied and was accepted to participate in the Flinders Medical Center Sun Ancon Chi Machine research. For the first time in years i had relief from swelling in my ankles and was able to move around more freely. I bought more own Sun Ancon Chi Machine and i have had continued results which has made my life easier. I am so grateful." - Joan, 78 years old, Australia.

Happy Wobbling!
"Last December my husband had surgery. He was left to cope with the ongoing effects of secondary lymphoedema. He was no longer able to work at his part time job, or enjoy his previous leisure activities, and his days were spent resting with his leg elevated every couple of hours.

In February my sister told us about a new machine that she had bought, which might help John manage his condition. The studies specific to lymphoedema looked promising and we purchased one soon after. At first John was using the Chi Machine morning and night without noticing any real benefits. Then he began using it as soon as he felt any tightness or discomfort.

He started to get his life back together. Then we found a physiotherapist who specializes in lymphatic problems, and between specific massage therapy and the Chi Machine (affectionately know as 'The Wobbler') he is back to his old activities. He can go fishing in the morning and play nine holes of golf in the afternoon. He hasn't stopped smiling. We enjoy traveling and now feel confident that we can plan some more trips away, with the Wobbler of course, tucked securely on the back seat.

I use it for only four minutes a couple of times a day. I am also enjoying some deliciously long sleeps." - Heather and John Dunlop, NSW, Australia.

Meet a happy Kiwi, Pam in New Zealand and read her wonderful story about secondary lymphoedema and cellulitis:


Noticeable improvements.
"Did anyone come through the summer without wishing they could throw away their offending limb? It is the first time I have wished I were more of a water baby and by the time the annual Lymphoedema Information Day came round, was convinced the build up of fluid would never go away. Hence it was really reassuring to listen to Prof. Piller describe in detail how the lymph system works and later answer the many questions posed by fellow lymphos.

The Sun Ancon Chi Machine came into our home about three years ago as an adjunct to my husband's ongoing health program. Three years ago I was a fit 62 year old and only used the machine spasmodically. Thereafter, lymphoedema crept up, slowly at first, gathering speed as the limb became waterlogged and the lymph system very sore.

With little trepidation I started to use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine, gradually building up the time to five minutes, three times a day, always following the rules of use e.g. a glass of water, and resting for 5 minutes after the motion stopped.

Although I have not been taking measurements, the improvements have been noticeable. The leg has become softer and the fluid drains much quicker when in bed or with the leg up. Other parts of my body have become softer also." - Jean McKern 65yr, Australia.

Help with mobility.
Carl Munson, a massage therapist in the UK was impressed with a talk Hazel Lockwood gave to around 100 healthcare professionals on a Lymphoedema awareness day. Hazel kindly shared an extract of her talk with Carl:

"I tried a Chi Machine that the hospital (Royal Hallamshire, Sheffield) were trialing. I was very impressed with the machine and bought one for my own use which I now use twice a day and wouldn't be without it. I don't think it makes a vast improvement to the shape of my leg in the short term, although I have a feeling that this will probably improve over a much longer period of time. What I do find, is that the limbs feel different. If I don't use the machine for some reason, then my leg reverts to feeling full and tight, so the machine definitely helps with my mobility." - Hazel Lockwood 51yr, UK.

Personal experience from a sceptic:
"When you read about the health benefits of using the machine, what else can arise, but skepticism? The long-term claims such as pain relief, better sleep-patterns, increased energy and alertness can all sound feasible in the long-term but after one short session that also sounded a bit too far-fetched.

Guess what? The skepticism went away and was replaced by enthusiasm in less than 24 hours. After four minutes on the Sun Ancon Chi Machine, I could not believe the reaction felt right throughout my body. This machine certainly generates results. However, there was more to come.

Now I sleep better and it is simply the best sleep I have had in years. These days I wake up earlier, and I get up within ten minutes feeling energetic. A much different pattern to the previous years of being a 'night owl', where I was often slow to go to sleep and sluggish in the mornings. What a joy to change that pattern.

Moreover, the Sun Ancon raised my energy levels, I got back to driving long distances again. I can confidently recommend the Sun Ancon to others, and hopefully, help them enjoy quality of life too. Meanwhile I know there will be more bonuses to me also as I continue to use my machine and regain qualities in my own life that have been missing." - Bernice Lynch, Housewife, VIC Australia.
