discomfort, either wait awhile longer, or be

that 'fixes problems' but it is definitely a support

Q2: My local Complementary Cancer Care
center have asked about the time sessions with
regard to their clients using the Chi Machine.

minute per week. The Sun Ancon Chi Machine is pure
aerobic activity and is gentler on the body than

with seizures use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine? Why
is it stated as a contraindications?
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 were in the
process of using the machine and had a seizure
during that time.

positive. It is important that the patient is
supervised the entire time when using the machine
as a precautionary measure.

minutes per week (or every few days) to a maximum
of between 10 and 15 minutes per session,
depending on the individual's comfort levels.
